An unprecedented manifestoAn independent candidate of South Madure, Tamilnadu, Thulam Sarvanan and his political manifesto is in news. He has promised his voters to provide them unique freebies-- A small helicopter to all, one crore rupees every year to all, a three-story building to all and a free journey to the moon to all. His weird manifesto is a mockery of all political parties' manifestos in which several fabulous promises are made to fool voters. Facing an interview he said that his intention to declare this manifesto is that people should be aware of this reality that all parties make them fool by offering them amazing offers and after the elections, all these promises are proven false. He appealed to voters to elect honest candidates only.
Voters don't see what welfare programs are declared in manifestos, rather they see their favourite party only, even they didn't see who the candidate is. They don't mind if their beloved party gives them nothing after elections. The majority of the voters decide which party they have to vote for, even before the date of elections is declared. Sometimes, I think if we really deserve a democratic system of governance? Perhaps we want dictatorship or kingship in our country. Surely, most of us don't know what democracy is.
