The article “The feeding frenzy of kleptocracy” (March 16) reiterates the well known fact that the richer are becoming richer and the poor poorer in India. That the duties waived on gold and diamonds in the last 36 months equal the amount we lost in the 2G scam shows our rulers are biased in favour of billionaires. Economic reforms since 1992 have ensured corporate security, not food security.

The common man is not amused by the ever increasing largesse doled out to corporates and business tycoons. While the media celebrates the addition to Forbes’ list every year, the aam aadmi is crushed by subsidy reduction. Western educated economic advisors and rating agency-driven policies will drive our country to the depths of poverty and doom.
