A report in this morning’s Times of India states that 1,450 of 4,896 of our Members of Parliament and Legislative Assembly have declared criminal cases of rape, murder, attempt to murder, kidnapping, dacoity and theft against them! And they are our elected representatives. These are the people who legislate for us. Do we have to wait for another two years when the next round of elections be held before we throw them out? Would they be replaced by people holding genuine respect for our Constitution? Would the citizens have worthwhile options?
If this is democracy,
Is democracy worth all the rapes, murders and corruption that are rampant in our society today in exchange for the freedom to outrage and be governed by animals who regress?
