Rotten Politics

As a citizen of Indian, today was one of the most shameful day as our own chosen leaders made the parliament a cattle market. During our freedom fight with the British .... 'bapu' told us to be true and they we behave these days... i think we need to find a new word to explain it.

" Scams are no longer restricted to financial swindles, and scamsters no longer believe in remaining incognito. Today’s scamsters are “confidence tricksters” (con-men) in the truest, most literal sense of the word: they exploit the confidence of the public, they sell themselves as heroes defending national security, as messiahs bringing relief from flood and famine."

In a nation where hunger is fast acquiring national dimensions, scams relating to foodgrains are a truly national phenomenon. We hear about scam after scam; enquiry committees are constituted; those enquiries are brought to a boil from time to time, and charge-sheets are framed to suit political needs – but never is there any indictment of the scamsters.
as there is systematic protection of scamsters, there is also a systematic avoidance of all attempts to ensure transparency and public scrutiny.

" Is such deep-rooted corruption just a moral crisis that can be resolved at the ethical level alone? Or is it rather a symptom of a ruling system that is insulated from and totally insensitive to the masses of working people in the country? When successive governments have no compunctions about imposing policies that intensify starvation deaths and farmers’ suicides, is it surprising that they siphon off food intended for hungry people? Only greater and more effective genuine democracy and accountability can really be an answer to corruption."

Today the cash was thrown in the most sacred place of this country -"The Parliament". do any of these people who we elected to represent us know what he is doing ? why he is been elected. how many really worry about this country. i think more and more of these kinds of questions should arise in the mind of socalled " common man". Because , if not it will be too true to oneself. The day common man get to think positive about all this and understand that these are his own problem, then we may have some better day.
