It is welcome that even Pres Mulerjee took note of intolerance of opposition parties to the govt to the extent that important legislation is stalled. He made mention of 7.30% growth inspite of global shrinking should have been highlighted by you. Opposition will continue to be intolerant as they cannot bear staying out of power.

Though our President,'s reference to intolerance may appear to some as recent bollywood filmy istyle he has unequivocally appealed to the disrupters of parliament and to those who have personal agendas dearer than his govt's agenda of progress. His stern warning against terrorism needed specific mention in your news. Pranabda is a seasoned statesman unlike some of his predecessors. Hence we find great deal of agreement between him and the central govt though headed by a different ideological dispensation. He is a fine example of tolerance.
