SP goons give cre­dence to Maya’s words

Tehelka - - 20 - MELVIN PEREIRA,

I re­ally liked your in­ves­tiga­tive ar­ti­cle on the re­turn of goon­daraj in UP. You are putting your life at risk for such sto­ries. A friend from UP told me Mayawati was way bet­ter in main­tain­ing law and order. I must say she was right in say­ing, “peo­ple will re­gret their de­ci­sion.” Keep up the good work.


Re­fer to ‘Jail­house Rock’ by Ashish Khetan, 23 June. Con­grat­u­la­tions on the ex­cel­lent in­ves­tiga­tive re­port­ing in UP.

A KOCHAR, ON EMAIL Ku­dos to you Ashish, for such a won­der­ful in­ves­tiga­tive story on crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties in UP un­der the lead­er­ship of Chief Min­is­ter Akhilesh Ya­dav. It is high time for clean pol­i­tics and fair elec­tions, where crim­i­nals are barred from con­test­ing. God save UP if all th­ese things are still hap­pen­ing un­der the lead­er­ship of Ya­dav. I salute the In­dian press for such bold ex­po­sures.

KE­WAL KHANNA, ON EMAIL Keep up the good work Ashish. Just read your ar­ti­cle on the goon­daraj of UP via Twit­ter. Brave ef­fort and keep it up.

FAIZ NOMANI, ON EMAIL I have been fol­low­ing your sto­ries for a long time now. Just read the one on Amar­mani Tri­pathi. Salute your courage and dar­ing ef­forts. You have re­de­fined in­ves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ism in this coun­try.

ASIT SRI­VAS­TAVA, ON EMAIL It is very shame­ful that no­body is in­ter­ested in stop­ping th­ese il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties. You should fol­low-up with Am­bika Chaud­hary as he has as­sured you that they need six months to stop all the mess cre­ated by the ear­lier govern­ment. Hats off to you!
