Wealthy and corrupt

The wealth amassed by Om Prakash Chautala staggers. It also provides an insight into the politics of the day (Chautala’s crores, May 5). Politics has become the best way to acquire wealth by corrupt means. In India, where lakhs of people are living in poverty, such unscrupulous acts are criminal. The CBI must pursue the case and uncover the web of corruption. There should be stringent punishment against such corrupt people.

The Ill-gotten wealth of politicians should be confiscated and distributed to people below the poverty line and paid through scholarships to less-privileged students in the country.

Face the facts
The Government should accept the Unicef report that India has a huge population of malnourished children (Hunger deaths rise, May 4). Refusal to face the truth will further aggravate the situation. The ground realities make a sorry picture.

Always an onlooker
Prem Shankar Jha’s support for Iran’s nuclear programme is misplaced (Spot the rogue, May 5). He feels Iran isn’t breaking any law. But Iran has violated the UN charter on its nuclear programme. It has developed facilities without subjecting them to the IAEA.
Apropos of Vadodara erupts after lull (May 4), why do such incidents happen in Gujarat when other parts of the country are free of such violence? Why didn’t the government keep in mind the sensitivities of communities before demolishing such structures that have strong emotional chords for the concerned community? What gives them the moral right to govern the public in such a slipshod manner?

Give them security
Indians working in Afghanistan are soft targets. The government must ensure that effective security arrangements are made by employers and the Afghan government.
