WAIT AND WATCH
This is with reference to the editorial, The conflict in the opposition (HT, May 14). The mercurial Mamata Banerjee and self-deifying Mayawati must be complimented for their astute stand that meetings of opposition parties should be held after the results come in as deliberations will be productive once the arithmetic becomes clear. Many permutations and combinations in both camps are in the offing. India needs a strong and stable Centre than ever before to steer its dasha and disha in five years and beyond. In national interest, the media and judiciary ought to rein in, if a need arises, any misadventures by politicians. It’s best to keep our fingers crossed till May 23.
