Q: Sonia says she is not afraid for any investigation in Westland Agusta Helicopter deal? Does it mean that it is a conspiracy to tarnish Congress leaders or NDA really does not have sufficient material prove the allegations? Don't you think that indeed there were kickbacks as bribe payers are behind the bars in Italy and the bribe takers in India are confident that they may not be caught by Law, as legal procedures in India take years for verdicts? Who is lying on the scam and the bribe money?A: All of us are aware of tardy legal and investigative process in India. We have shortage of people in the investigative agencies and courts. Moreover, a powerful axis exists between criminals and the police which makes it impossible for any one to take every case to its logical end and get justice.Shankar RaoBengaluru, 04-05-2016

Q: Arvind Kejriwal wants PM Modi's educational qualifications through an RTI plea. Why he is not asking for the educational qualifications of Mrs Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi? Is he afraid to do so?A: Why do we bring in Gandhi family in every issue? Media has been discussing their qualifications for the past three decades. Millions of words have been written for and against them. What is wrong if any CM raises such question and PM has nothing to hide. Kejriwal is playing politics and let the BJP respond to him politically.Sadhan Kumar DuttaCuttack, Odisha, 04-05-2016
