With reference to the report Mumbai's towering scam (October 31), it is a matter of great concern that while numerous scams keep unfolding, inquiries remain restricted to eyewash and nobody is ever found guilty. Nobody has been held responsible or a single person arrested for the scams involving the 2G spectrum or Commonwealth Games. The UPA government makes every effort to cover up scams and protect the guilty through shoddy inquiries.

The Adarsh Housing Society case is a betrayal and mockery of the sacrifices made by the Kargil martyrs. The land meant for these heroes has been misused for profit. The greed displayed by senior army generals and top politicians has brought disgrace to the nation. Those responsible should be booked, court-martialled and put behind bars.

This refers to the report Apex court slams CBI, corners govt on Raja (October 30). It is shocking that the telecom scam has caused a loss of crores of rupees to the exchequer, but the CBI has made little progress in booking those responsible. No action has been taken against the telecom minister either. Is this an example of the zero tolerance to corruption of the central government?

With reference to the editorial Let's get down to the specifics (Our Take, October 29), the US must realise the implications of losing sight of counter-terrorism. Serious efforts need to be taken to eliminate this menace. Politicising the issue may boomerang, as Pakistan has found out at a great cost.
