While ministers and even MLA's today, do not think about all that. It is because they just love to enjoy the luxury that they hold being a minister. They do not care about if anything wrong is happening in our country and they feel they have army and police officers to do all those jobs.
They just want to be safe with the security that they own and just need publicity and fame. As I earlier said in one of my posts, "this is a world of show off". Same thing they also do towards people.
A positive attitude will lead to positive results.
Olden days Kings want to see that people in their kingdom are happy. They used to see that the people live in peace without any problems. They are more interested in the welfare of the people. They always want to get a good name among the public. If anybody has a bad opinion about them, they used to worry and always try to get corrected.
These days MLAs, MPs, and Ministers are having a different attitude. They spent money for getting that position. That position is also not permanent. Already they have distributed money for getting the votes for their election. So they will be thinking about, how to get back the money before the time expires. Make hay while the sun shines.
So they are not worried about people and their problems. Let the people may get a bad opinion. No problems. They can manage people with money again in the next election.
So I feel it is not good to compare those kings with these people
