Let there be no political fight over Surjith's death

The death of the toddler Surjith who fell into an abandoned borewell on Friday has shocked everyone. Though the state Ministers including Vijayabaskar and others were at the mishape site and supervised operations, yet the boy could not be saved.

Jumping the gun, DMK chief Stalin accused the State government of adopting a lethargic attitude in the rescue efforts and asked why the assistance of Indian Army was not sought.  

Even Congress MP Jothimani blamed the State government of being very lethargic in rescue efforts. However a section says that it is not time to do petty politics over the death.The boy's death has taught several lessons to the world. All of us should make efforts to prevent recurrence of such incident, they say.

The State government did all it could do. They brought in experts and came out with all assistance to rescue the boy. The rocky terrain and geographical condition made things worse, they add.It is not time to blame the government. All the Ministers were there and did their best. They deserve appreciation, many say.
