Is this the type of Government, citizens of India were expecting after 2009 election?

If you think about Indian National Congress(INC) party of India, you cannot forget the atrocities conducted by the then Prime Minister Mrs Indira Gandhi during the Emergency period of 1975. After more than 35 years of declaration of emergency, we can say that the Congress ideology has not changed much, but it has more deteriorated. Congress is the leading party in United Progressive Alliance(UPA), which won the general poll last time. In the last two years of rule, every action of Congress is aimed to hook to the Delhi power. After all, Delhi was symbol of power even thousands of years back. If you look into the history of India, every invader of India wanted to take hold of Delhi to become ruler of India. In modern India also, as soon as the political parties take charge of Government using power of public, they become power mongers and they forget importance of public power and they forget the principle of running government using essence of democracy.

So, why is it that we are facing this type of situation in modern India also? Is that enjoying absolute power is everything? Is that there is no place for public service in Indian politics?

Everyone wants to enjoy the power. Sometimes, I wonder, all leaders are saying that they are honest…If they are honest, then why they are in politics? Politics is not for the honest people – this is what the common people of India know. Now,   let us take a reciprocal view, if you are not honest….then why you are not in politics? As if, politics has been reserved for corrupt people. It is like a school class, where every student wants to become first….(obviously in corruption). That means, the race is for….who would earn more by corrupt means.

We have many names of Indian leaders who are making India proud(?) by helping the country to be listed amongst the most corrupt country of the world! From recent history….we have Sharad Pawar, Suresh Kalmadi, Chagan Bhujbal, A Raja, Madhu Koda, Ashok Chavan, Mayawati, Reddy brothers, Kanimozi, Dayanidhi Maran, Yeduyerappa etc. From the past we have… A. R. Antulay, Arjun Singh, Sukhram, Lalu Yadav, Jagannath Mishra, Mulayam Singh…..and this list goes on endlessly. I can say that, most of the leaders of modern India have misused their power after entering into politics.

Now the debate is going on in the country, how we should punish these leaders who are corrupt? The law of the land was not enough to deter these leaders from corrupt practices. Undoubtedly, the year 2010 was the year of scam for India. Many new scams came to the light….more importantly; these scams have crossed not millions but billions of Indian rupees. The greedy leaders have now removed all the boundaries. They do not fear law. They do not love countries any more….they need money at all cost…they are not interested in country’s progress. Anna Hazare is leading a protest against corrupt society and weak law…he has already started movement for a change, and a fight against corruption.

And we know, changes will not come easy. There will be struggle and uprising of public to make India a worthy place to live. General public wants a better India to live, a country which is free from crime, where everybody is having conducive environment to grow, controlled inflation, pollution free environment, policies in the interest of common men specially farmers and labourers etc. And this is possible only when, we have corrupt-free India.

Let us all support Anna’s movement for a better India.

    Am supporting strongly. By crude estimate at least 95% of politicians, judges, police, bureaucrats, industrialists, etc. are corrupt. These corrupts are looting our country for last sixty years. They are nothing but native invaders, thieves and criminals and the single largest threat to the national security. They are not Sahibs, they deserve boot of the masses. According to the standard of any civilized country they deserve at least rigorous life imprisonment. Read the sections below to know how mean they are. India is going through a state of complete anarchy.
