Failing to pay heed
Apropos of the column “Consultations, courtesy and courage” (FE, January 4), what will become of the country if even a top agriculture policy expert like the columnist believes that the government is simply not acting on the recommendations given to it by various experts? I am sure the columnist himself would have been part of these consultations, but if the finance minister or the prime minister are just hearing him and his peers out, because of sheer courtesy and nothing more, then there is really no hope. There are many expert reports, consultation papers, etc, given to the government not just by the experts but also by the consulting majors like McKinsey, Deloitte, etc. The government is not paying heed to those as well. One can clearly see the frustration of every single stakeholder now. When will things get going?
Expose Pak army
Will it be possible for India to engage in any dialogue or peace process with her neighbour to the west? Pakistan has proven consistently insincere in normalising ties with us. From to friendly engagement in international fora and growing bonhomie between the two prime ministers, we have come to Pakistani-army-aided infiltration and terror attacks. It is time India got tough with the Pak army. Because it is the real mover and shaker. India should just draw out Raheel Sharif and his band of jihadis and show them to the world for who they really are. Only then can the two countries be spared the endless turmoil.
