Is the PM reading?
With reference to Yashwant Raj’s article Good cop, good cop (October 5), I salute Jasvir Singh. It is heartening to know that strict officers like him still exist. His case should be brought to the notice of the government. The Prime Minister with all his autho-rity and administrative experience must do something to save officers like Singh from corrupt politicians.

Officers like Jasvir Singh should be assigned departments that need honest and upright police officers. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati should realise Singh’s worth and include him in her core team to help her change the image of the state.
The developments in Karnataka have again exposed our greedy politicians. The fact that the BJP joined the coalition despite knowing JD(S)’s past record smacks of irresponsible behaviour on its part. It’s time that such coalition experiments are abandoned for good by appropriate legal procedure.
Time to act
Apropos of the reportby 2010, climatic changes will render 50m people homeless (October 5), India can help check global warming through the efficient management of its forest cover.
Forests have a direct role in the protection of enviro-nment, conservation of biological resources, poverty eradication and sustainable development, which have a bearing on economic and social development of the country.
