Politicians of today always want to stay in power, irrespective of the route, which could either be foul or fair. Most of the times, it is the former route. They amass huge wealth so that they can obtain help of all sorts of criminals and mafias to stay in power. Thus, here comes in the real picture of criminalisation in Indian politics.
As a means of winning over these criminals and mafias, with a view to using their muscle power to win elections, they also give tickets to these criminals. In the process, these criminals get elected to the Parliament and State Legislative bodies. With such people in government, can we ever expect our country to grow in the right direction?
Indian politicians are not shy of exploiting caste, regional or communal sentiments to come into power, to build their vote banks by appeasing certain sections of the society on caste, regional or creed basis. Politicians also seek help of big business
houses to get money and win elections on the basis of money power.
Thus, rather than developing the interests of the nation, they develop the interests of these business houses. So, there is an unequal development with rich becoming richer and poor becoming more poor.
To sum up, rather than working for the development of the country and ensuring social justice, the country is run for caste, regional, communal, criminal or business interests and the police force is also utilised towards this end. The Executive and the Judiciary is also selected in such a way as to work towards this end only.
Unless our politicians work seriously and honestly for the development of the country, ensuring social justice and eliminating caste, regional, communal, business, mafia interests from their working system, only then, there are chances of the nation progressing forward.
