Modi has changed the narrative of politics from caste to development
This refers to the editorial The next stop could be Delhi (Our Take, December 21). By leading the BJP to its fifth win and the third under him in Gujarat, Narendra Modi has proved that he’s the tallest leader in the party. He should be the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate in the 2014 general elections as no other party leader is as popular as Modi. However, a lot of permutations and combinations will go into the BJP’s final decision on its prime ministerial candidate. Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and other alliance partners can oppose Modi. Whether Modi becomes prime minister or not, one must give him credit for changing the political narrative from caste politics to development politics. -Sanjeev K Singh, via email
It is heartening to see that the people have once again reposed faith in Narendra Modi. His government’s investment in development activities in the state has paid rich dividends for the saffron party. Other BJP chief ministers must learn from Modi.

Make Delhi safe for women
This refers to the report Rape effect: more cops for city streets (December 21). The capital of India is increasingly becoming unsafe not only for women but also for men. While we must pray for the victim of the Sunday rape case and put pressure on the government and the judiciary to ensure stiff punishment for the accused, we must not forget what happened to her friend also. To avoid such incidents, we need better police patrolling of the city’s roads and better transport connectivity, particularly at night.
