Even this challenging situation would ease
In a democratic system voting is the crucial basic process which determines the selection of candidates and it is the privilege and right of a citizen to give vote. At the same time if the process brings in people who simply make money and buy property in foreign lands and then in some adverse situation simply fly away from the country and pass their remaining lives in a foreign land in a luxurious way, then what is the use of voting.
With time this problem may escalate further when more and more people start thinking that they should not vote for the dishonest people.
It is also true that all the people elected would not be dishonest but even if a few of them are like that then the whole governance is jeopardised.
Knowledge is power.
People who will not understand the value of the vote will take money from all the candidates and vote for a candidate whom they like. They also know that nothing will be done for their benefit. So whatever money they can get they will earn when there is a chance.
There should be a change in the policy. A person who is having criminal cases against him/ her should not be allowed to contest in the elections. A person who won on a particular party ticket should stick to that party only. If any of them changes their party automatically they should cease their post of MP/MLA. These posts are for service and there should not be any salary or pension to those people. When such rules are made only we can see some good people coming in to contest in the election. But the question is that who will bring in these changes?
