The editorial Monkey train (The Pundit, July 27) rightly pointed out that we don’t know how to utilise facilities that are made available to us. The sight of overcrowded trains during festivals is commonplace in this country. But why isn’t the ministry taking tough measures against passengers who flout the safety norms?

A job well done
The Tracking Hunger Campaign of Hindustan Times is doing a great job. Not only is the campaign exposing the indifference of authorities towards the hungry millions (Punjab wheat rots, July 27), but it is also making the citizenry aware of the problems that the nation is facing. It is shocking to read how the government is letting food grains rot when it can use the same to feed thousands of hungry people.

Changing the system
This refers to the editorial Welcome the game changer (Our Take, July 26). The single-window tax will not only make lives of consumers easy but will also help knock off prices
substantially, which rise due to multi-point taxation. Everyone, including the business houses, will benefit from the Goods and Services Tax .

Passing the buck
This has reference to Pankaj Vohra’s It’s sink or swim for the UPA (Between Us, July 26). Both the Congress and the BJP have failed to address public issues and pass the buck when it comes to owning responsibility. Politicians should understand that the intra-party rifts lead to huge loss of public funds.
