Even this challenging situation would ease
During earlier election in Gujrat, we listened a lot about the Thakurs, Patidars & Dalits as well as of Rajputs too. If we take a close look then in between we forgot about the different government policies or of growth & development agenda. The Hardik Patel, Alpesh Thakor & Jignesh Mewani were the famous names who made a fresh entry in to Indian Politics with this.
These days political leaders started going to Swamjis and mutts to attract Hindu voters. In India, people are not very conscious about the caste and religion. They all live together. But politicians only will bring in these factors for their betterment.
So, in a nut shell, there are many problems that still are unresolved and everyone irrespective of their political parties were trying to woo the electorate and have the numbers. Even now each party is trying to fight for survival,whatever happens, the problems of people in Karnataka, we take a back seat until we the public keeping voicing them repeatedly.
Recently, the Supreme Court turned down the plea to make it mandatory for political parties to declare their source of funds. However, political parties cannot use this as an excuse to abdicate its responsibility of bringing transparency in their finances. In a democracy like India, where even the supreme law of the country – the constitution – derives its authority from the people, political parties are supposed to be accountable to the masses whom they claim to represent. Therefore, bringing transparency into political funding must be a voluntary action even if it is not imposed by the law.
In present times, when over one-third of the current Lok Sabha MPs have faced criminal charges and more than three-fourth are multi-millionaires, the demand for transparency must be conceived as a democratic value, a tool designed to avoid any harmful influences of money in politics.
