How about part-time politics to reduce corruption?This is not about politics and I am not going to suggest what politicians should do to make the country progress. Rather, this thread is a suggestion to find a way to cleanse politics. We talk about reforms in politics to reduce corruption. The government at the centre was directed earlier to find ways to decriminalize politics. There are many debates in many sections about reducing the corrupt practises by the politicians.
Now think of this from a different angle. We all are professional and many have expertise in some domain. Along with managing our profession we also do a lot of things like indulge in hobbies, associate in some social activities, etc and there are people who excel in other activities beyond their domain of work. Though not everybody does such things beyond their profession because there are many who cannot manage time. Now, if a law is enacted where only professionals will be allowed to rule the country will it help to reduce corruption? It is something like part-time politics. For those politicians, the hour of work in the office may be reduced to a great extent like three to four hours a day and the rest will be there to rule the country. Then the rulers will have a good idea about the professions and they will be able to address the problems of each profession effectively. Politics will not be their only source of income and because of this, there may be less corruption. Politicians are eager for power because of money associated with power but being a professional may reduce the greed for money to some extent and more interestingly every politician will be qualified to a certain limit to carry out specific tasks. In that case, we can expect sensible behaviour from the politicians. If a professional in any organization can manage other things effectively, will it be too difficult to manage the country? Most of the day, the politicians waste their time in criticizing and quarrelling with the others and they can effectively utilise this time and remain engaged in a profession.
