These leaders are the culprits and they are not illiterates. They misguide the uneducated.
If you keenly observe all misdeeds are initiated by educated persons only. They understand the law better and they know the loopholes and they are the law makers. So all notorious people with education are doing all unwanted works. So what I feel is there should be a minimum qualification for a voter also. A person who is not having prescribed qualification can't be given vote power. If this rule comes the voter will understand the things better and government will also have people with minimum qualification as a man without voting power can't contest in elections. This is my opinion. The better solution is to make every one literate.
