Letters to the Editor
Sir, The attempt on the life of the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, N. Chandrababu Naidu, by the People's War is testimony to the fact that there is a need to take on the terrorists. Talks cannot be a solution. It is absolutely necessary that the security forces have a law like POTA.
Sir, This refers to the editorial, "Assassination as politics"( Oct.3 ). While condemning the terrorists and their activities the rulers must try to understand what went wrong with their policies.
Sir, The PW claiming credit for trying to kill Mr. Naidu reveals its nature. What is the PW's aim? To help improve the people's living standards or to indulge in killings and arson? Why cannot the PW put its shoulders to the stuck cart of progress and help Andhra Pradesh become the most prosperous State in the country?
Brig. (retd) A.D. Venkateswaran,
Sir, The attempt on Mr. Naidu's life is a heinous act and the extremists responsible should be hunted down and punished. However, in the process the law enforcement agencies should not trample on human rights and civil liberties.
Sir, What saddens me is that everyone is confined to condemning rather than finding a solution to the problem. As a resident of the Telangana region I have observed that the main reason for people joining the PW is unemployment. More job opportunities can help solve the problem.
G. Ramesh Kumar,
Sir, In your editorial, "Assassination as politics" (Oct. 3), you have said that "human and democratic rights" have to be taken care of when counter operations are planned by the Government. The question is: human rights for whom? Can a person who does not mind killing innocent people be put under the "human" category?
