Pitch is laid

Apropos “Power shift in the Grand Old Party” by KV Prasad, Rahul Gandhi perhaps sensed the mood of the nation, and acted bravely, unmindful of the consequences. Courage is a sign of victory and wisdom. The youth can rally around a youth in 2014 if he can play a few masterstrokes cautiously, just like Sachin Tendulkar. The pitch is in favour of the batsman.

Unfit to lead

By keeping away from the government, Rahul has not evolved as an administrator (“What Rahul must campaign for now” by Raj Chengappa; Ground Zero, Oct 6). His speech at the CII was directionless because he was not able to highlight any of his administrative achievement whereas Modi has already proved himself as an able administrator. As far as good governance is concerned, Rahul has got nothing to campaign for.

Rahul’s contribution to Parliament during his decade-long stint as an MP has been nearly zero. Many Congressmen (read sycophants) want to see him as the Prime Minister, but they forget he lacks experience for the high post. His only qualification is his dynasty. Strangely, Dr Manmohan Singh also says Rahul would be an ideal choice. Height of sycophancy!

I am neither a writer nor do I belong to any party, but wonder how some writers feel Rahul is fit to lead. This nation is not the private property of any family. He tore the ordinance, but is it not corruption to promote your own family member? The SAD is doing the same thing. I have done BTech and where ever I go for a job, I am asked if I have some contact. Even to be PM, one needs to belong to a certain family. It’s a shame for the world’s largest democracy. Being an MP, he never took the responsibility of any ministry. How can he do so for the whole nation?

Be wary

Nawaz Sharif, Pak Army, ISI and terror outfits are working in perfect coordination against India ("Hasty conclusions on Pak won't do"; Sunday Tribune, Oct 6). Sharif's promise to keep peace at the LoC will be tested in the next few months. Since he took over, there have been over 90 incidents of violations at the LoC. India has to revisit its policy and take measures to counter the threat.

Justice served

Lalu Yadav has been rightly convicted in the fodder scam (“The last laugh is on him” by Nirmal Sandhu; Sunday Tribune, Oct 6). If the higher court upholds the CBI ruling, it will bring Lalu’s political career to an ignoble end. This will deter politicians from using their position for political and personal aggrandisement. It is time to clean up Indian politics.
