Do you like puppets? Certainly not one of this kind, never.My place is now facing elections to the Gram Panchayat, Nagar Parishad, and Mahanagar Palika.
What I observe and really don't like from bottom of my heart is that of fielding puppet candidates. There are certain seats which are reserved for women. This reservation is to empower and bring women as leaders in our Indian political dais. But the picture is different than the purpose for which we are doing this. There are candidates from the family of the politician who had earlier contested from that seat but cannot stand now as it is reserved. What they are doing is to bring their wife or a close female relative to stand in the election. What I feel is they are put forward as a puppet and the actual director is different.
Will this really serve the purpose?
