Ruling parties in India – The present circumstances – My observations

political corruption

India is undergoing a political turmoil.

Why we have come to this situation. Let us introspect and improve of quality of thinking for a better India

What Does This information Mean to the Country

This scam list shows that politicians are corrupt at every level. Corruption is common in every state. Politicians feels that they positions are insecure and they are not caring to be sincere.

Constitution revamp is essential for better India

Constitution was written 60 years back when the standards are high among politicians and the same will not work with deteriorated standards. The Government orders will be so structured that everyone can interpret to their benefit. No stringent rules to curb corruption nor punish the corrupted. Even with substantial evidence of corruption the culprits are safe and free to move. They can contest, influence and get away. Ruling parties with majority can do anything like divide a state, release a corrupted college, put a person in prison, initiate an investigate, make few popular and few unpopular
