Oops, we slipped up so let’s bash India, says Pakistan
With reference to the report Cornered Pak turns on India (May 6), unable to handle the criticism on its failure to intercept America’s Operation Geronimo to kill Osama bin Laden, Pakistan is now trying to divert global attention by warning India against ‘plotting’ against Pakistan. However, India shouldn’t get bogged down by these warnings. It should make use of the opportunity and put pressure on Pakistan to bring the perpetrators of the 26/11 attacks to justice.

The bad apple in the basket
In his article Beyond the empty chatter (May 6) Keki N Daruwalla makes it clear that with Osama bin Laden’s death, Pakistan stands exposed as a haven for extremism and hatred. It is true that Pakistan was formed on the very idea of hate. The US should stop its military and monetary aid to Pakistan and declare it a rogue State.

As usual, people pay the price
With reference to the report High inflation may hit growth (May 6), frequent hikes in the prices of petroleum products, electricity and vegetables have put the common man in a tight spot. Why should we suffer for the government’s inability to provide subsidies on essential commodities? But the UPA, busy appeasing its corrupt allies who have derailed the growth momentum, does not seem willing to address the problem.
