Social and political Values and Systems in India.

Criminalisation and corruption in politics

In the recent past, criminalisation and corruption in politics has affected adversely the character, thinking process and inter-relationship of those constituents of the national elites, whose role  matters the most in the development of the nation. Degeneration has not been confined only within political institutions, but has trickled down to administrative apparatus and other important constituents also like the political executive, the legislators, the businessmen, the organised workers, the surplus farmers, intelligentsia, media-persons and the bureaucrats.

Uptil 60’s, majority of leaders honestly dreamt for an equitable society. Then gradually degeneration started, dream were shattered and extra-constitutional elements dominated the political scenario of the country. With it grew criminalization in political and corruption in administrative circles grew beyond limits. Life became increasingly difficult for common men and upright persons.

Entry of criminals in politics, directly or indirectly has resulted in fragmentation of politics and erosion of rule of law. In rural areas, criminals and extortionists have strong political backing or feudal roots. Common man, especially the illiterate ones, who do not understand the complex and unpredictable behaviour of such politicians, are easily swept away by false promises or assurances or threats given to them during elections by politicians or their supporters. For them, politicians are their ‘mai baap’, who control their destiny.

Almost all the political parties are giving encouragement to anti-social/criminal elements. whether it is BSP and SP in UP, RJD and LJP in Bihar, or regional parties in other provinces – in W.Bengal, Maharashtra or North east etc. These are giving tickets to tainted people to fight general elections. The disease of giving tickets to tainted candidates is not restricted to regional parties only. National parties like Congress and BJP have their share of tainted candidates. Criminal element in politics do its best to mobilise, terrorise, or prevent voters from voting and sometimes to get election cancelled by adopting the path of violence. UP and Bihar, the two north Indian states are suffering the most because of criminalisation and corruption in politics.

  1. I go to see day-to-day some web pages and sites to read articles or reviews, but this
    blog presents feature based articles.

  2. I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours these days, yet I never
    discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet can be a
    lot more helpful than ever before.

  4. What you said made a great deal of sense.
    However, think about this, suppose you were to write a awesome headline?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added something to maybe get a person’s attention? I mean Criminalisation and corruption in politics
    Latasinhas Weblog is a little plain. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write post headlines to
    grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
