Honesty is the best policy.
I would 'apply leave on that day' because if I become a one day CM, the biggest question for me is where do I start? If I wanted to get rid of corrupt officials, most departments would have their manpower slashed by more than half and I would spend the day pacifying the respective ministers and the angry public.
If I wanted to cleanse the system of the scamsters, I would lose most of the ministers and I would not have numbers to prove majority and stay in power. If I wanted to truly help the people, they would laugh at me because the people have given up hope of finding a true politician who is committed to the welfare of the public.
I would be filled with greed to hold on to the chair of CM and would be treading down a path of no return. I would be forced to hand out benefit after benefit to appease people even if the treasury is empty. Hence, I would apply leave, rest the day and get back to my routine the next day.
'Idhuvum Kadandhu Pogum "
Even this challenging situation would ease
If I were offered a post as CM for one day.the first step I will take is to remove all other ministers immediately and nominate the best possible citizens who were known for their expertise and ethical ways. Even though I will be there for one day, these ministers can be there at least for six months and they may do good to the society. I feel this is the best option I have.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.
