The Hindu : Opinion / Lead : A risky strategy, born of panic

The Hindu : Opinion / Lead : A risky strategy, born of panic

I always turn to The Hindu when I hear the same clutter in other mainstream media and I immediately see clarity. I see hope that some people still realize that to better understand an issue you need to see both sides of the story first, and then you will make a better judgement. It takes courage to stand out and not simply follow the side which appears to be winning at present. UPA will survive most people agree, but democracy has lost. A decision like FDI in retail is of such enormous consequences that a simple majority should not drive it through, let alone a majority garnered by congress 'Managers'. PM Manmohan Singh could have done better, Pranab Mukharjee had the sense to suspend this decision previously in the interest of democracy.

  1. I am afraid I will nor be able to agree with your view that The Hindu provides clarity on all issues.The Hindu has its own bias towards left. Its views on reservation are not based on facts or the spirit of the constitution. Regarding FDI in retail, there are others like Gurumurthy who have argued more cogently than Siddharth Varadarajan.
