UPA says it's curbing inflation while adding fuel to the fire
The recent hike in the prices of diesel, kerosene and LPG exposes the UPA's incompetence in governing the nation (Diesel, cooking fuel prices hiked, June 25). Why should the common man suffer at the hands of a government that is trying to appease oil companies by increasing fuel prices every now and then? It is surprising that while the government admits that inflation is a serious problem, it continues to increase the fuel prices, which add to inflation.

Why does Prime Minster Manmohan Singh, a well-known economist, not realise that his government's policies aren't benefiting people? The UPA government is making people feel guilty for having elected an incompetent government.

No quick-fix solutions here
With reference to the report Women's cricket, culture to foster ties (June 26), India-Pakistan ties won't improve until Islamabad takes concrete steps to curb terrorism and Delhi takes the Kashmir issue seriously. Both countries should realise that these problems can't be solved overnight. But that doesn't mean that they stop making efforts to tackle them.

The company the PM keeps
Rajinder Sachar's article Scared of the spark (June 25) is timely. It's possible that the prime minister is in favour of including his office under the purview of the Lokpal Bill, and that it's the people around him who are creating an unnecessary controversy. Whatever be the case, the PM should make his views on the bill public at the earliest.
