In India, it is the practice of the political leaders to say something and promise something during the election promises and speeches. But public will never keep these things in their mind. They know that all these promises are false. Nothing will happen after elections, this is very common. People are also like that. They take some money and vote to whoever they wanted and afterward they also don't bother about anything.
There will not be any use of keeping these records and reminding them about these promises.

Even this challenging situation would ease
I think for now, no one has forgotten the grand promise made by the BJP/NDA and our current Prime Minister before coming to power.How many have they fulfilled? For the most, they have completed the unfinished tasks of the previous UPA government which they had opposed vehemently at that time. They are still working to complete many more such tasks. Fuel prices, subsidies, Aadhaar, price rise, railway ticket increase etc are those which are glaring and affecting our daily life. There may be many more which ordinary citizen may be not facing daily like bringing back black money and crediting to individuals accounts.
Only people are to be blamed. Why to believe in superstitions and false beliefs. that political parties will keep their election promises.

Since these are variable traits of politicians, I do not think Wikipedia will be able to retain it forever.
A positive attitude will lead to positive results.
For this to work for each political party has to maintain such a core list of promises made by each member who stands for election. Next time he or she files nominations again, then firstly the party should verify whether the promises were kept within practical limits before putting up the name, secondly, the election commission can countercheck the same while accepting the nomination papers and lastly the local media can put the data out before the elections so that the voters of that locality, town or city can decide for themselves.
Basically, this would set up a three-level filter wherein candidates have to have delivered something to have hopes of being elected again. Of course, it sounds easy on paper but at least we'll have an idea whether politicians "practice what they preach' and 'deliver what they promise'. It's not as if they are doing us a favor, they are paid by the taxpayer's hard earned money.
