Monopoly of Elected Leaders
Indian political system is based on democratic pattern,it means government of the people by the people and for the people. By the general elections people elect their representatives to the various levels such as Lok Sabha, Vidhansabhas, Panchayti-raj etc. Political parties have been recognized by the Election Commission. They place their candidates for various seats in different elections. After the elections, the majority of candidates of any political party form the government.
Candidates who fight the elections and win, become part and parcel of the government. They enjoy various posts of benefit and power, with the impression of these powers and status they are considered different from the general masses. The period they enjoy in ruling time is very prestigious for them and full of high status. They can utilize the government funds at their own preferences which improves their status more amongst general masses.They are given warm welcome at all the public meetings and everywhere, therefore these leaders have the impression that they are above the public. They make the laws and implement them ,no other person who may be wiser than that of him/leader may not be cared of their advice at all. That’s why they are above all. So wee see that while getting habitual to living in the high status in govt. fold that person/leader wants to enjoy his life the same way for ever. For that he requires a lot of money and other resources to fight the elections and to win again and again, which can not be gained easily, so he takes help of some unlawful methods.
These methods lead to corruption. The money obtained through malpractices will lead to downfall in the character of that particular leader or person. This way the political culture of Indian democracy becomes malafide and the definition of a leader is ruined, the majority of leaders of this category ruined the real sense of democracy. People or general masses are betrayed with the sense of democracy they are living and are exploited in many ways. We have come across so many cases of many leaders who are involved in scandals of million of rupees, but they are seen above the law.It is not easy to prove their fault legally or promptly.That’s why this process of corruption involves many others as well.
So people of the country have to face price rise lawlessness and many other discrepancies in their lives.The real sense of democracy is failed, the faith of people in the govt. and institutions goes down. This is the first reason for downfall in political culture and moral values. Today we see it in our country the problem of corruption has reached the level where it has become difficult to bring it to the normal level.The only solution is, there should be a complete change in the government.”New and loyal people with fair image should be elected to form the govt”, and existence of the real democracy be revived. Only voters could do this in the coming general elections. I wish the things could be brought to the normal values and status, our country may gain its previous level of a successful democracy.
