The BSP MLAs should behave with decorum in the assembly
This refers to the editorial Deja vu in UP assembly (May 30). The callous manner in which the BSP MLAs acted on the first day of the 16th Uttar Pradesh assembly is deplorable. The BSP members, who were protesting against the alleged collapse of the law and order machinery in the state, could have raised the issue in an appropriate manner without disrupting the proceedings of the House. It is most unfortunate that instead of working closely, the two parties are back to their old ways.

Team Anna must look within first
This refers to the report Will resign if charges proved, Manmohan tells Team Anna (May 30). Instead of offering to resign, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should order an impartial probe into the graft charges levelled against him and 14 Cabinet ministers by Team Anna members. Singh’s silence on his colleagues doesn’t augur well for the government and he should ensure that those found guilty must be brought to book. Moreover, with Team Anna members levelling corruption charges against each other, it’s time they set their own house in order before taking the PM or the government to task.

Congress in a fix in Andhra Pradesh
This is refers to the editorial More turbulent times ahead (May 29). The imbroglio in Andhra Pradesh embodies everything that plagues our political system — from long-term indecisiveness to misusing a situation for political gains, to the tussle that exists between the Centre and the states. Jaganmohan Reddy’s claim to his father’s political legacy is nothing but a trait that he inherited from the grand old party. Though, the Congress has completely mishandled the situation in Andhra Pradesh so far, it still has time to make amends.
