`Tainted' Ministers

Sir, — While highlighting the salient features of the Common Minimum Programme, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said he was committed to providing a corruption-free, responsible, transparent and stable government. But the induction of `tainted' Ministers casts doubts about this. But his helplessness is understandable considering that he is under the influence of different `power centres.'

Sir, — If chargesheeted persons can be retained as Ministers, police verification of candidates seeking to join government service should be given up.

Sir, — It was interesting to see the leaders of the BJP and the TDP march to Rashtrapathi Bhavan demanding the removal of `tainted' Ministers. Our political parties speak for clean governance only when they are in the Opposition.

T.V.R. Potti,
Thiruvananthapuram
