Bring in mechanisms to stop miscreants who spread hatred
With reference to the news report Azam fumes over fake FB account, cries conspiracy (June 21), it is alarming to learn that there are anti-social elements who go to the extent of creating fake identities on social networking sites and use them to spread hatred and confusion among people. On the face of it, the fake facebook account created in the name of Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan is to tarnish his image. There should be mechanisms in place to check such activities and track down the miscreants.

Frame a corruption-free model
Aakar Patel’s views, in his article India is not Gujarat (June 21), that the culture of the rest of the country is not as vibrant as Gujarat, show that he is not optimistic about people from other states. The author overlooks the fact that it is rampant corruption that has led to the current state of affairs, and if Narendra Modi were to occupy the seat of power in New Delhi, he will have to correct this fundamental flaw. Only an earnest and sensible leader can meet this challenge.

Aakar Patel passes a meaningful message to those not looking beyond Narendra Modi in the existing political scenario in the country. Ever since Modi won the Gujarat assembly elections for the third time in a row, his elevation was inevitable. Although an ‘outsider’, Modi enjoys a natural advantage at a time when the Centre stands exposed as inept and venal, the Gujarat leader still faces many real challenges. The nation is young and needs a leader who is strong and who adopts a dynamic approach with a strong positive message.
