DTC buses will soon go the Blueline way if not checked
This has reference to the report Fire fear forces two DTC buses to halt (December 12). The recent spurt of incidents of fire breakouts in the low-floor Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses is the result of poor maintenance. Rash driving of these buses only worsens the problem. A host of drivers from Blueline buses has been engaged by DTC. They drive these buses in the way they used to drive the Bluelines. If the recklessness of these drivers is not checked soon, it will only be a matter of time before these buses start wreaking havoc on the streets as well.

The truth shall be told
Vir Sanghvi’s scathing remarks about the Mumbai Police and the reconstruction of how the brave police officers died on duty, evokes anger at the callousness of the Mumbai police force towards its own colleagues (Who killed Kamte?, December 15). The news channels that pursue trivial news with a passion should hang their heads in shame. Vinita Kamte has outdone them all by telling the truth. A free media should uncover injustice and highlight neglect by our public servants. It is only after sincere efforts are made towards serious journalism that the public can respect the media.

Not quite home alone
This refers to the editorial, Residential pardon (The Pundit, December 15). It is a matter of shame that our MPs are not made to adhere to laws. This only goes to show how the implementation of laws in this country is skewed. The authorities should enforce stringent measures to get official residences vacated so that those who are staying in five-star hotels or guesthouses are accommodated and unnecessary expenditure is avoided.
