Mindless violence
Apropos of the report Christmas in Orissa: 2 churches set on fire (December 26), the attacks on churches in Orissa warrant stern action against the offenders. The fundamentalists do not know any religion. Violence shreds the social fabric. With crimes plaguing society, death sentence is the only deterrent. As a rule, one who takes a life forfeits his own.

Practise first
this has reference to the report Taslima can come: Basu (December 26), veteran CPI(M) leader Jyoti Basu rightly welcomed Taslima Nasreen to return to Calcutta. There is no room for communal politics in India if the country wants to stay intact. But like charity, morality begins at home. What the CPI((M) did in Nandigram, or to Taslima Nasreen is playing the communal card for garnering votes.

Voter is supreme
The land of Sardar Patel and Mahatma Gandhi has totally rejected the vote-bank politics of the Congress party and put an end to the scheming Communists. Narendra Modi has proved that anybody who cares for the material and philosophical needs of the Hindus and delivers accordingly cannot be pushed under the carpet through false propaganda.

There is a vast difference between the thinking of the people and the media. The Gujarat election result is the latest example where the media tried their level best for Modi’s defeat. Indians are wiser now and they understand the working of the political parties. The media should be impartial, otherwise they will lose the confidence of the people.

Defying predictions of all exit polls and anti-incumbency factor, Modi has pulled off a surprise win. The development work carried out by his government has yielded results. The Congress’s rout in Gujarat will put the nuclear deal in cold storage as the Left will again raise its voice against it.
