Spineless political system of India
How unfortunate we Indians are not because of the country but because of our spineless political leaders? This is a question, which storms my brain quite often. I have complete faith in our constitution and judiciary just like most Indians, but what worries me is that India, on paper a democracy, doesn't look like one.

BEFORE INDEPENDENCE, our forefathers were ruled by kings, Nawabs and later on by British rulers. Now, politicians in one form or the other rule us. Technically there are different political parties in India and all of them are openly supporting the cause of common man but actually none of them is doing any good to the common man.

Per se, there is no difference between Congress, BJP and other political parties. They are doing politics just to fool the people of this great nation. They have been elected to serve the people of the country but unfortunately most of them are serving themselves and their kith and kin in one way or the other.

They used to fight and oppose one another just to fool the nation whereas truth is that all of them are going to do the same things when in power. They are ready to do the politics even in sensitive cases just like security of the nation and rape cases. I was just watching the TV and saw news channels flashing news about the leader of opposition, Sushma Swaraj, who has asked for a stringent action against Pakistan for their brutal act. It looks quite impressive that opposition is asking questions to the government in power to do something against such things.

Kargil happened just after the Lahore visit of our then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. He was the most vocal person for a peace talk between India and Pakistan just like our present Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. I don’t have any doubt about his vision and sincerity about this peace mission between India and Pakistan. But unfortunately we lost more than 400 army men of our great nation just because of inefficiency of that government. After two years of that tragedy Mr. Vajpayee again started a peace talk with then President of Pakistan Parvez Musharraf. It again failed in the form of attack on the parliament.

I have a simple question with all the BJP leaders: why during Kargil war Indian army was not allowed to attack Pakistan? At that time we had every reason to attack Pakistan but we didn’t. Please explain this to the nation. If it was not possible to attack Pakistan at that time then why we have to attack Pakistan now? Is there any other way to change the things between India and Pakistan? Nobody knows the answer.

It is quite clear that most of the people in both countries want peace and free trade system between them to flourish. We will never be able to attack Pakistani army just because of the fact we don’t have real powerful politicians in our country who can teach a lesson to our enemies for such heinous crimes. That is tragedy and we have to live by this fact.

We should support Pakistan government to eradicate terror outfits from their soil and that is in the best interest of both the countries. Again for such things to happen, we should have strong leadership in power which can do such dealings with Pakistan. I don't know what is in future but we only can hope for the best.

Most of the countrymen are not happy with the performance of this government. And there is no doubt that the country is not growing as per expectations. But unfortunate thing is that we don’t have any option. We have BJP as an option for the congress in government but is BJP really going to do anything for the nation and its common people. I have serious doubts. For me there is no difference between most of the parties in country. If they have really any difference in their approach towards the nation and its people half of the population would not have been poor even after six decades of independence.

I think our whole political system has to be overhauled to overcome all the shortcomings. Unfortunate thing is that all these things should have to be done again by these politicians who are not interested in such reforms.
