Democracy & Politics- The dire need of amendments
“Politics is the last resort of scoundrels” - Bernard Shaw
Politics should become the first resort of thinkers & well Educated People- Prof. Mitta Sekhara Gowd
Dear Citizens of India & the Political leaders,
Salutations to all.
The Rich Heritage of India and the Ideals of erstwhile Rulers are found slowly dissipating day by day. If the Citizens of India and Political leaders did not wakeup, then they may dig grave for the next generation. The thoughts of Socrates, Plato’s philosophy and the practical approach of Aristotle and discussions of political thinkers had shown the path towards the good governance at that time. The Wisdom tanks like Chanakya, Karl Marx, John Stuart Mill, Jean-Jacques Rousseau paved the way time to time and proposed suitable theories.
It is evident that day by day our Political and moral values are declining. The thoughts of hundreds of philosophers & rulers like Ashoka, Akbar, Mourya, Buddha, Basavanna etc. have become only the syllabi for Academic Teaching in India. With the indepth study of epics like Ramayana, Mahabharatha, Vedas and 159 constitutions referred by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, our Constitution and Pillars of Democracy were propounded and our’s is the world’s largest democracy.
The exemplary governance and ideal leaders like Gopalakrishna Gokhale, Mahatma Gandhiji, Lal Bahudur Shastry, Murarji Desai, Atal Behari Vajapayee down the line Manmohan Singh and Narendra Modiji is the outcome of India. Let us introspect the adaptation of Constitution of India and Democracy at present.
The laws for enforcement of justice are found good. However, the problems are in their effective implementation. The fountain of Justice should be kept away from tainted hands. Interference into Judicial proceedings outside the courts should be barred from public comments. It should be made punishable offense to safeguard the beauty of laws.
The Politicians should be trained properly to abide by the context of freedom of expression as enshrined in Constitution. It is necessary to fix the minimum qualification even to the politician along with requisite compulsory training to ensure political discipline. The derogatory statements of politicians should be viewed seriously through appropriate laws.
Equality should be in all respects to ensure social justice and it should be more realistic beyond political preaches.
The principles of Democracy should be implemented properly which demands for the strong political will and public awareness. The elections are to be conducted transparently with the 100% participation of Voters. The money, muscle and the other powers should not find their way into electoral system to safeguard the decency of the democracy. The structure of democracy should not be based on Caste, Creeds etc. otherwise which may lead to unwanted comments by leaders of different community against one another damaging the finest fibre of fraternity.
The merger of the Political parties particularly in the case of Hung Assembly or Parliament should not be like Marriage for convenience.
The Politicians should be accountable to public periodically in their respective constituencies. The Government should come out with appropriate laws to enable public to withdraw their ineffective leaders.
Finally, it can be concluded that proper enforcement of justice by effective implementation laws, fixation of minimum qualifications to enter into politics and compulsory training in Morals, Ethics, Constitution and Democratic principles is the need of the hour. Proper technology is to be adopted to ensure 100% Voting system & the proper electoral role to avoid the duplication like one state to other, village to urban etc. The money, muscle and the other powers should not find their way into electoral system to safeguard the decency of the democracy. The structure of democracy should not be based on Caste, Creeds etc., It may lead to unwanted comments by leaders of different community against one another will affect the fraternity. There is a need of accountability of promises vs deliveries which should be available online to the public every now and then.
Finally, it can be concluded that
· Proper enforcement of justice by effective implementation laws
· Fixation of minimum qualifications to enter into politics and compulsory training in Morals, Ethics, Constitution and Democratic principles
· Proper technology by using the software to ensure 100% Voting system & the proper electoral role to avoid the duplication like one state to other, village to urban etc.
· Proper measures to be taken to control the money, muscle and the other powers for ensuring the proper electoral system to safeguard the decency of the democracy.
· Removal of Caste, Creed, and Religion based Politics.
We, on behalf of our journal request all citizens of India and Political leaders to take the huge responsibility for implementing and practicing the holy Constitution and august houses of Parliament and assemblies. It is the high time to amend suitably laws in force to comply with the Constitutional requirements. Thanking you,
