Letters to the Editor
Sir, It is heartening to note that our honourable Prime Minister, Atal Behari Vajpayee after three full weeks has recognised that what happened in Gujarat was ``extreme injustice,'' though he has not done anything dramatic to alter the situation there during this period.
Whether his latest remark is a reaction to the NHRC Chairman, J. S. Verma's statement on the situation there is anybody's guess. One hopes that Mr. Vajpayee goes further than issuing statements, and as Prime Minister, acts to restore the faith and confidence of the common man.
One would, for example, be happy to see him pull up the Gujarat administration and punish the officers and policemen who were responsible for not maintaining law and order. And consider revamping the police force and communally restructure it besides helping the victims of this tragedy.
This would go a long way in establishing Mr. Vajpayee's credibility as a non-communal entity.
