With reference to the report Deathlines continue to kill (October 10), the Delhi Transport Minister must resign because he has failed to provide a safe public transport system. In fact, he should have taken moral responsibility and resigned by now. Since the Delhi government is incapable of implementing its own policies and keep a check on the rowdy drivers, it should appoint a monitoring committee to streamline the corrupt transport system.
Cross the hurdle
Apropos of Prem Shankar Jha’s article It’s now or never (October 9), the Left has gone a bit too far this time. In a democracy, can any party with so few seats in their kitty influence the functioning of a government? The communists are trying to do that. The UPA should go for the elections at the earliest.
Better late than never
With reference to Sanjoy Hazarika’s Look immediate east (October 8), it would be difficult for the government to establish relations with a democratic government in Myanmar if the monks and the people fight and win, with India supporting the junta. India must support the democratic forces in Myanmar for its own interest, if not for humanity. New Delhi must act fast, otherwise if China starts ruling the minds of people in Myanmar, it won’t be able to look even immediate east.
Apropos of KumKum Dasgupta’s article Animal non-activists (October 10), we have been unable to save our precious wildlife from atrocities and have failed to provide them the right medicare. But this is not the time to blame each other but remove the chinks that exist in system and make our wildlife parks true sanctuaries for the defenceless animals.
