" Show leadership , Prime Minister, Sir "


Pak PM Imran Khan offers peace talks to India. He is in total denial mode. Wants actionable, credible evidence of Pak hands in Pulwama attack.

Please recall Madam Indira Gandhi's leadership during 1971 war. While giving free hand to Indian army, she led the country throughout, instead of indulging in domestic politicking. She was one of the best war-time Prime Minister India had. This is not the time to run away from responsibilities. India reposed confidence in you. Act fast. Do not allow the momentum to die down. Every passing day is important. Making political jumlas and trumpeting self-achievements at public rallies, is not considered appropriate during these hard times.


A K Saxena (A former civil servant)


Raising retirement age would antagonize youth


The present BJP Government should not make the biggest blunder by raising the retirement age and antagonize the present force of youth which consists of 65% of the population. The government should not bowed down the force which is in searching an opportunity for achieving the self goal only.
