Doing it right

Reference to “Battle of two turns three-way” by Ruchika M Khanna (Sunday Tribune, April 27), AAP does not have the potential to win but it can spoil the prospects of the Congress and SAD-BJP candidates. This time, the poll process was supposed to be a watershed but it has witnessed deterioration in political ethics. Many AAP candidates have faced violence and many irregularities were committed by various parties. The Election Commission has been receiving complaints of poll code violations. We must bring in poll reforms.

Much at stake

Apropos ‘Jibe for jibe, Amritsar remained a golden fight” by Raj Chengappa (Ground Zero; Sunday Tribune, April 27), winning the Amritsar Lok Sabha seat is crucial for both the Congress and BJP. Adopting different strategies, the candidates are vying with each other to woo voters. Anti-incumbency, promises of development, dash of glamour, petty ulterior considerations and overwhelming response at the road shows notwithstanding, the final result will reflect the general mood and maturity of the electorate. Hopefully, it will make the right choice.

The article conveys the reported feeling of a section of society that if Jaitley enters the lower house of Parliament, he may become the Deputy Prime Minister. But it doesn’t consider how Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj and Yashwant Sinha will accept a lower status in the proposed Cabinet. Jaitley has the expertise, qualification and oratory skills to rebut his adversary but in parliamentary democracy anything can happen. If the NDA government comes to power, the post may be offered to other parties who command the numbers and without whose support the government can’t run.

Vote right

Apropos the article “Left or right, matter of instinct vs influence” (Sunday Tribune, April 27), the demography of peoples’ voting dynamics differs vastly within and between diverse geographic regions of the country. Prejudicial voting towards any party or candidate often results in electing unsuitable politicians, who ignore prevailing issues for their own advantage. Therefore, it neither serves the nation well nor its people at large. We must think objectively and vote for the candidates who have a secular vision for governance, growth and development of the country.

Moving on

The interview of Laxmi Narayan Tripathi by Seema Sachdeva (Spectrum; Sunday Tribune, April 27) presents a grim picture of the marginalised ‘other sex’. They are not considered for education and employment in public and private sectors, forcing them to beg, seek ‘badhai’ or work as a sex worker. They should now avail of the facilities announced by the Supreme Court and turn their lives around.
