J Dey's murder gives a peek into the politician-mafia nexus
With reference to the report Mumbai scribe shot dead (June 12), the brutal killing of crime journalist J Dey is deplorable.
Dey aspired to unmask the crime syndicates in Mumbai. He was working hard to uncover the oil mafia in the city. His murder confirms that he had got enough information to expose the politician-mafia nexus, which is allegedly behind most of the city's crimes.
The central government must put pressure on the police to nab the murderers and punish them suitably. A handful of goons shouldn't be allowed to overpower the media.

Straying from the main issue
This refers to the report Get your pets registered with MCD or suffer (June 12). According to a 2009 survey, Delhi has more than 2.6 lakh stray dogs.
While the MCD's decision to ask people to get their pets registered is welcome, it should also formulate some policies for stray animals. The municipality should give them proper food, vaccinate them from time to time and monitor their population.

New CM's old mistake
The report Guv takes back consent given to Singur land ordinance (June 11) makes it clear that the new Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal, led by Mamata Banerjee, lacks foresight.
Banerjee can't use 'inexperience' as an excuse to make blunders while formulating policies for the state. The state machinery has some of the most experienced bureaucrats who can advise the new CM. Banerjee can't take people and their trust in her for granted.
