    Are we feeling short of good and seasoned politicians ?

    Over the past few days the spat between the Congress and counter attack by BJP leaders has created such a filth politics, as people are resigning themselves from seeing the news or reading the news papers mentioning about them. Gone are the days when we had seasoned and good politicians like Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Jayaprakash Narayan, and many more to whom there was ample respect even from ruling parties and they have been treated well. Now the slip of tongue from Congress leaders are making that party run for the cover and their slip of tongue may prove costly in the on going Gujarat elections.

    The politicians these days are always ready to criticize the opposite party. They don't hesitate even to tell completely lies in getting attracted from the people by talking and defaming the other politicians with very good attacking words. But the voters are not like earlier day voters. They are also getting educated. These politicians can't fool the voters forever.
    There were very good politicians in earlier days who used to speak correctly and nicely but able to corner the ruling party by talking facts. If you hear the speeches of Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the parliament we can't stop ourselves from praising him. Similarly, Indira Gandhi is also a very good orator. Our great Telugu Icon Dr N T Rama Rao used to give speeches in public meetings which were attracting lakhs of people to his meetings.
    We require good, honest performers as political leaders who will think of society and its upliftment.

    It is true that the social acceptability of the present day politicians is far below compared to those in the past. We cannot find some one like Lal Bahadur Sastra, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Aral Behari Vajpayee, and such others. In States also the situation is not different. In Kerala, for example, we had personalities like E.M.S.Nambudiripad, K. Karunakaran, C. Achutha men on, C.H.Muhammad Koya, Justice V.R.Krishna Iyer, etc. are some names remembered throughout.
    These days majority of leaders come to power using their money power. And their aim solely become making more money. Nobody shows an interest in building up the nation. Otherwise the gap between ' haves' and 'Have nots' would not have increased like and also the number of 'Have nots' would not have also increased.

    Old is Gold, applies to politics too. With the way each one is trying to outwit the other, it's difficult for people to focus on the real issue at hand.Maybe that's what the politicians want. Earlier people in power used to have an argument and not get personal to such an extent in public. As rightly said by other members we do lack quality or maybe quality is getting diluted with the others in the field. In recent times, heated exchanges to come to light are often between the local partymen or at the state level. This happening at the national level with the two key leaders of the two major parties is certainly making us ask questions do we have good politicians still left out? I think gone are the day wherein the politicians could hoodwink the electorate by loud allegations or denials, now people are smart enough to know the truth and spring up surprises when least expected.

    We have no dearth of politicians in our country, but the number of statesmen is negligible. It is almost nil. The short-sighted politicians have made the word 'politics' a dirty word. They have been joined by agenda-driven journalists who have thrown the word 'impartiality' out of the window.
    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

    No just in politics, but in almost all spheres the quality is dwindling and we are moving towards more of mediocrity.

    In geography and terrains, peaks and mounts are being brought down and the land is made plain to be with the vast expanse. Rods are made as level as possible through out. The same happens to politics performance, intelligence,knowledge arts, and so on. Belonging to or as one among the mass is what every one's aim is. From 'Yatha raja thatha praja -it is now yatha praja thatha raja'. As the mass, so the King. So no one dares to be different from the potential mass.

    I totally echo the views expressed by Partha at his response #619048. When our politicians would learn a leaf from the old timers?

    The days are changing. What was wrong yesterday is correct today. The politics have also changed and we have a new breed of politicians. There is a change in the people who vote in the elections. They are not voting for a capable person, they are voting for a party. There are brilliant people in politics and they are adapting to the changes. The people get what they deserve.
