Wakeup call

Refer to ‘Party’s on, aam aadmi lining up’ (Sunday Tribune, Jan 19), whether AAP can deliver will be known in time, but its asset is the ground swell of goodwill. The electorate in Delhi has conveyed the message that a party must work for the people and not be guided by self-interest. A third major party has made its presence felt and will hopefully rein in parties that do not serve the nation. The BJP and Congress need to reflect on the objective of vote-bank politics. They ought to serve the interest of the majority too. The concept of reservation doesn’t treat all people as equal. It is time that the expression is dropped from the Constitution.

Don’t lose lesson

Apropos ‘Now to put it behind and show prudence’ (Sunday Tribune, Jan 19), the incident has adversely impacted the Indo-US ties. This has happened due to the irresponsible behaviour of a senior employee of the Government of India. She had the responsibility to strengthen the ties between the two countries. This is a big lesson for India and its diplomats. Instead of taking retaliatory measures, which further strain relations, the government should direct its officers to abide by the law of the country where they are posted.

Cong makeover

Apropos the article ‘Anger fine, Rahul needs a compelling narrative’ by Raj Chengappa (Ground Zero; Sunday Tribune, Jan 19), Rahul needs to know the ‘political quotient’ of leaders and workers around him. Let him bring inclusiveness in the party and rejuvenate the cadres. It is necessary for intra-party democracy, which is otherwise missing. He should have a concrete action plan to choose candidates on merits. He should develop a mechanism of feedback on a daily basis. Can he muster the courage to withdraw support to the AAP government in Delhi?

Rock solid

The story of Inspector Ram Dayal teaches us a lesson never to give up in life (‘Made whole by zeal to educate rural children’ by Sanjeev Bariana; Sunday Tribune, Jan 19). What can be more unfortunate and dreadful for an athlete than to loss his legs? Ram Dayal fought back and wrote his own destiny. He is serving humanity by helping downtrodden children. Life is a battlefield and we are warriors. Let’s make the best of it.

Thought to the wild

This refers to the article, ‘Right to passage for the wild’ by Jotirmay Thapliyal (Sunday Tribune, Jan 19). It is sad human interference has caused fragmentation of wildlife corridors. Many elephants have lost their lives after being hit by trains. The corridors must be cleared of the track, highway and human settlement areas for the free movement of wildlife. The Centre must do the needful soon.
