The report Deadlock threatens Parliament future: PM (December 12) shows the extent of misgovernance in India. The UPA government is blaming the Opposition for the Parliament deadlock but is silent on its opposing a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the 2G scam. In the 1980s, when the Congress at the centre enjoyed a comfortable majority, it promptly set up a JPC to come clean on the Bofors scandal. Today, it knows that a JPC will bring out many skeletons out of its closet.

Eating into our vitals
This refers to the report Corruption beats terror as top Indian concern (December 10). Corruption is the bane of our political system. It is never too late to take stringent action against the erring or those complicit in such wrongdoings.

Not a feather in his cap
With reference to the editorial Not a carbon copy anymore (Our Take, December 11), Environment and Forests Minister Jairam Ramesh has caused a furore with his statement that India would accept legally-binding cuts on emissions. This comes at time when India is trying to avoid giving into pressure from developed nations on accepting such caps. The Opposition's concern over Ramesh's statement, which is a deviation from India's policy on climate, is justified.

Singh's song's offkey
It's shameful that senior leader and Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh is politicising the 26/11 terror attack (Digvijaya stands by Karkare remarks, December 12). The Congress can't distance itself from Singh's comments. It must explain the reasons that led to Singh making public these comments.
