Their differences make a big difference to national growth
Pankaj Vohra in Leadership deficit (Between Us, February 14) rightly mentions that Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi should bury their differences in the interest of the party, the government and the nation. They can’t let UPA allies take undue advantage of their difference of opinion, even if it jeopardises the future of the government.

Vohra’s warning to the Congress — to deal with dishonest leaders — is timely. Congress chief Sonia Gandhi should rise above petty politics and take bold steps to tackle corruption in the party. The prime minister should replace old and corrupt politicians in his Cabinet with those who sincerely want to contribute towards national development.

Now to help Egypt make it work
With reference to the editorial The scent may not spread (Our Take, February 14), the political change in Egypt is historic, as it came about without bloodshed. The revolution brings good news for the people of Islamic nations who have realised the importance of democracy. The rest of the world should welcome the end of Hosni Mubarak’s oppressive regime and support Egypt in forming a democratic government.
