Manmohan Singh is a stop-gap prime minister for the Congress
With reference to Rajdeep Sardesai's article Dial P for purge (Beyond The Bite, December 17), the author mentions how Indians "rejoiced when Singh became the PM in the belief that we had found a leader we could identify with and not a spoilt dynast". Unfortunately, Manmohan Singh is keeping the seat warm for the ‘spoilt dynast' to take over. Singh's loyalty to Nehru-Gandhi family was evident when as Union finance minister he allocated Rs100 crore to the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation. Singh is a prime minister with an agenda and he must tolerate everything for the sake of fulfilling that agenda.

Sardesai's article was a timely reminder to PM Manmohan Singh that the growing menace of corruption is damaging the core of the nation. It's time to take a hard look at those who are governing us and press for political reforms.

Digging its own grave
With reference to the editorial Miss the wood for the JPC (Our Take, December 22), the Congress has been cornered by the Opposition because of its obdurate stand against all canons of constitutional logic.

Enjoy the club-class ride
With reference to Soumya Bhatta-charya's article Master class (Big Picture, December 22), why do we always need to compare Sachin Tendulkar and Don Bradman? Instead, we should savour Tendulkar's stupendous achievement and pray for more such innings.
