A Mockery of Indian Politics

I am not well versed in politics, but the state of affairs in Karnataka–the tamasha created by H.D. Devegowda and his party members–is sheer mockery of Indian politics. Imposition of President's Rule, formation of a BJP-led government, and once again President's rule, hypocrisy, backstabbing, and greed continues in politics.

"Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

"Greed for power corrupts and if that power has been tasted once, it corrupts absolutely."

Is there no retirement age for politicians?

When the youth of the nation try to take active part in politics, does the common man even care to vote for them?

The mentality-"A known devil is better than an unknown friend." is applied here.

The drama unfolding in Karnataka, the wary coalition at the centre, the massacre taking place in West Bengal, all these incidents will be brushed under the carpet and life will go on as usual. The common man will have to bear the brunt of these political tactics.

God alone can save this country.

To conclude-

"The people should not be afraid of the Government, the Government should be afraid of the people."-[taken from "V for Vendetta"]
