Are crorepatis the kingmakers?

The Bellary brothers in Karnataka are proving to be the real kingmakers in Karnataka.The sons of a police constable,seem to be power and money thirsty wolves.It has been proven time and again that current system in India and the electoral laws are helping only the crooks to contest elections and win with the help of money power.A hundred rupee note + Free Biriyani + Free Transportation are enough for our poor people to be lured.The people are used to these last minute election freebies now and they are satisfied with what they get from these corrupt leaders.

Chief minister BS Yeddurappa might not have visited so many temples before. No need to say who are behind this. The reddy brothers money power can get them what they want.Survival without huge money power and corruption seems not possible in Indian politics.The brothers from Bellary have been financing the elections at different times.They are now able to buy the 60 MLAs to their side and in a position to topple a state government.

Similarly, in the recently concluded elections in North East state, Arunachal Pradesh,the winners are mostly from the Congress party and almost all of them invariably are Crorepatis.There is atleast one thing in common among these people.If not all, most of them have become filthy rich after becoming a minister

  1. yes this is very unfortunate. I am deeply ashamed by the way the crorepathis are dictating terms to party bosses. Had it been a common party worker, in no time he would be expelled.

    Instead of focussing on people affected by the flood, these people are fighting to keep thier chairs. Be it any party, all of them have lost ethics.

    I had great hopes on BJP, but they too have let me down.

      Sadly that is the situation in India now.No party in India is accounted for its income and expenses.Even though the leader wants to be honest and ethical, other people are not going to let him to be like that easily.Whoever is having more buying power, commands greater respect among others in the party.For Nehru family, it is their unaccounted/unknown wealth for their party men to become beggars and hypocrites.It is the only reason, I can think of.

    I agree with you on these points. The true recipients of change should not be focussed at politicians but at driving education towards civic duty to each and every Indian. Only through a educated public can such actions be negated.

    • I would say education plays significant role in determining the leaders we want.But there are many illiterate but prudent people out there who have succeeded/outsmarted many educated people.It is the empowerment of people which is very essential for the change.
