Don’t accuse Team Anna, show us some proof
This refers to the report Team Anna backed by US groups: minister (June 11). It is appalling that a day after Union minister V Narayanasamy alleged that foreign forces were supporting Team Anna, Union minister of Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi also accused US-based groups of funding the anti-corruption movement. Instead of accusing the leaders the movement of wrongdoing, the government should come up with some proof. For now, the Union ministers should stop accusing Team Anna since this will not help the government’s case at all.

A difficult time for the BJP
This refers to the editorial Steering by remote control (Our take, June 11). In the absence of a leader who can lead the BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Sanjay Joshi’s abrupt exit will create more problems for the saffron party. It is also clear now that there is a deep rift within the BJP and this will also have a negative impact on Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi. It’s time the BJP sets its house in order. The problems in the BJP is also bad news for the voters because there is no credible Opposition now.

Don’t change the old system
This refers to Somnath Bharati’s article IIT just won’t work (June 8). I am glad that finally someone has spoken on behalf of all those who want to enter the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT). It would be unfair to give weightage to Class 12 marks as the assessment system varies across boards and students will not be evaluated on the same scale. Moreover, the examinations conducted are not completely application-based as they are in the case of the IITs. Therefore, the Common Entrance Test would dilute the admission criteria for the IITs.
