Indian politics and it's future for vision 2020

Indian politics has no longer the democratic essence. Now politics is ruling by the reach peoples, who don't want to render the service expected, only enjoy powers to fill up the pockets. They are not thinking about the future of the nation. India has a vast and rich middle class, who are eager for a dynamic leadership. Now Indian politics require some educated, honest and dedicated people to stop unnecessary use of power and making money and to forward the nation towards vision 2020.


As per Mahatma Gandhi the "seven deadly sins" are:
1. Wealth without work
2. Pleasure without conscience
3. Knowledge without character
4. Commerce (business) without morality (ethics)
5. Science without humanity
6. Religion without sacrifice
7. Politics without principle

Mahatma also emphasized that "a person cannot do right in one department whilst attempting to do wrong in another department. Life is one indivisible whole."

But current politics are not at all following, even not trying to follow the words of Gandhi'ji, the father of nation. Most of the politicians are in politics for good economical establishment. Hence the politics become a profession now for making money for own and not for the any kind of social working.

Present state of Indian leaders

Under very crucial circumstances, the future of Indian politics becomes worrisome. Currently, Indian politics facing the scams are corruption, amongst the politicians. No any political party is willing to fight back against corruption, because almost all the parties are tainted in the act of corruption.

Current Indian politics is ruling by the rich peoples. The rich people become richer. This is the fact of Indian politics.

Many of the high profile politicians are into politics only to make money. The ones who come out to render their service to public have little chances to win the ticket. Therefore its all a money game play. Now it is very much needed new educated members in national congress and BJP.

Now national congress becomes too weak. They always bent upon remaining in power, even if it comes at the cost of progress of the nation.

On other hand, BJP have a ally of right wing groups like VHP and Bajrang Dal.

Requirements to call India powerful in 2020

The future of Indian politics is doomed in darkness of corruption. The well-educated youth having an attitude to work for the development nation should come forward and raise their voice against the present state of it.

Now it is require, people who are educated need to join politics. National party with educated people in it could only make the necessary changes. Other wise we really have to lost our hope.

The world knows very well that India is developing very fast and it is also predicted that India will be one of the powerful nations in around 2020. Now it is expected from the politicians that we have to meet the target. Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, our earlier president of India forwarded the goal towards the target successfully. Now the time come to fulfill the goal of Vision 2020. Our leaders have to take challenge and have to meet the target with a good slogan, which could be vision 2020.


So, it is very clear picture of capabilities of our leaders. They are not at all capable to leading India in to 2020. The Indian leaders are now very much sincere on vote bank politics. They are not at all worried about India's current critical problems, like corruption is rampant, illiteracy, hunger etc. Current GP rate is below 6% and corruption aggravating massively. Right from the top to bottom order, our politicians are doing corruption and hence, there is not even a single member in the government, who is doing the right work for which task he/she is placed in that position. All the politicians, even who are not on the sit but giving excuse for the party member, are always blaming the external factors, which impacting the country's growth.

So, In this article it explained clearly that our leaders are not at all capable of leading India in to 2020. It is impossible to reach such level, unless there is some miracle change happening in politics, not in the mentality and work culture of current politicians. In this crucial situation India definitely needs a dynamic and honest leadership. There is so many Indian, who are not in politics, have the capability to lead India in to the dynamic path of sustained growth. But today's political leaders have not this capability to lead a country. Those kinds of leaders can take India to become a power that the world will sit up and notice. But current politicians are not capable at all.
