Tough job

Jaitley has an unenviable job at hand. (“All eyes on the new FM” by Sanjeev Sharma; Sunday Tribune; June 8). He has inherited a shattered economy. To make things worse, he has to cater to very high expectations of all sections of society. A wounded Congress and its equally wounded allies are waiting to pounce on him for any slip. To bring back the economy on track, he will have to generate resources and put them to optimum use. All unplanned expenditure will have to be avoided. In the initial years of the Modi regime, austerity will be the mantra.

Shielding the honest

Apropos “How will the PM protect ‘honest bureaucrats’ from CBI?” (Sunday Tribune, June 8), the CBI is supposed to be a professionally skilled organisation whose primary task is to investigate corruption cases involving huge amounts. It is often alleged that it functions under the direction or influence of political leaders in power. There has been lack of decision making by bureaucrats after many scams unfolded. It will be pragmatic for the CBI Director and Director of Prosecution to jointly examine and evaluate cases. Only if concrete evidence is found, should an oral order be passed for preliminary inquiry. No honest officer will be harassed and bureaucrats will work fearlessly.

SC Vaid, Greater Noida


The Supreme Court has provided enormous power to the CBI to investigate and file charges against any senior officer without obtaining permission from the government. The hands of the government have been cuffed for not availing its powers to abstain the CBI from taking action against honest officers. The law must be amended to give back powers to the government to save honest CBI officers.

Ruler saga

The profile of KCR (“Rebel is finally the ruler” by Suresh Dharur; Sunday Tribune, June 8) is a saga, not of heroism, but of indomitable personal ambition which led to the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. Had then Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu made him a Cabinet minister, KCR would have remained content. His calibre is still to be seen. The rules of the throne never change, only the rulers do. I wish the people of Telengana a bright future.

Green man

An environmentalist with a vision, Prof SL Saini is endowed with an unflagging zeal and capacity for hard work. (“Every tree counts, and this mathematician knows it” by Shiv Kumar Sharma; Sunday Tribune, June 8). His endeavour has elicited public support. His Aryabhatta mathematical society renders great service to needy students. Teachers should be inspired by him and must emulate his efforts to serve society.
