Letters to the Editor
Sir, The news item, "Judev has quit but Jogi has not, says BJP", (Nov. 18) reveals the state of affairs of our political system. On one side, a Chief Minister is charged in a case of alleged forgery and, on the other, the Opposition's chief ministerial candidate is "caught" allegedly accepting bribe. Will the common man ever get a chance to exercise his right to vote to decide between the good and the better, rather than reluctantly make a choice between the bad and the worse?

Sir, The report on Mr. Judev justifying his action by invoking the name of Mahatma Gandhi shows how little present-day politicians have understood Gandhi. Can even the presence of a hundred Gandhis among us today correct the situation?

Sir, To expect the episode featuring the unfortunate Mr. Judev to influence voting decisions in the coming elections is to assume too much. If Mr. Judev loses in Chhattisgarh, it will not be because the voters were morally outraged by his actions.
