Let the UP CM make life better for people before setting up a zoo
With reference to the editorial Let's freeze that for now (The Pundit, April 10), while I appreciate Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav's proposal of setting up a 'frozen zoo' in the state, I feel that he should focus on many other areas that require urgent attention, His concern for various endangered species of animals is indeed praiseworthy. But Yadav should use his energy, experience and skills to make the lives of the people of UP better. To begin with, he should work towards curbing the rising crime rate in the state.

Pak must prove its good intentions
With reference to the editorial Economics, the obvious answer (Our Take, April 10), though relations between India and Pakistan have never been on an even keel, they haven't reached breaking point yet. There are various issues that both nations must address to ensure a peaceful coexistence. We can't dismiss the possibility of another terror attack originating from Pakistan or a change in leadership there. But both New Delhi and Islamabad must continue to make efforts to improve bilateral ties.

The recent meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Pakistani President Asif Zardari may have been "constructive". But there's no guarantee that Pakistan will take action against Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of the Mumbai terror attacks. Along with the US, India should put pressure on Pakistan to bring Saeed to justice. It should make it clear to Pakistan that the failure to do so could disrupt the peace process between the two countries.
