Enough Mr Prime Minister!

Please now use the mandate the Congress has been given for reform - not just economic.
As the report indicting our security forces for the rape and murder of two girls in Kashmir (please click on the title of this post to read an article from today's ToI) and the gross dereliction of duty by the navy particularly, in the November 26, 2008 attacks in Bombay clearly indicate, there is an urgent need for reform of the military.
The appalling murder of a student in Dehra Dun by local police in a fake "encounter" also shows that it is time to put an end to that medieval practice (needs to be coupled with a drastic improvement in real investigative ability of the police). Also shows the need for drastic reform of the judicial system.
The time for talk is now over, Mr. Prime Minster, let us see some action!
