Whom to believe in today's world?

It seems that the elected ministers work for their own betterment. All ministers are not corrupt. But in today's scenario, we can't trust any leader. Hopefully, the young ministers of India won't take the shortest route to achieve success.

AT PRESENT, when there is recession, cost-cutting and many more difficulties for common man, people obviously require help from the government for a smooth life by getting good opportunities for their livelihood. However, when we hear and see the scandal and cheating done by the ministers, how can we trust them?

If you see the recent scandal of 400 crore which took place in Jharkhand state, we all feel ashamed that we, the common people of India have chosen such type of leaders for serving the nation and people. However, it appears that instead of serving the people they serve themselves.

I am referring to the scandal created by Madhu Koda, the ex-CM of Jharkand. We selected him as a leader and a representative for our better future, but all went in vain and such type of output was produced. When a person with span of just two years can make such a huge amount of money, what about the people who are involved in such scams for long period?

Jharkhand is actually a beautiful state with all sorts of natural resources and raw materials. It can provide lots of opportunities for young blood with jobs and creative activities. But after Jharkhand started progressing, the politicians there have ruined the state with all sorts of mis-use of power.

I am not only telling about this particular case. There are many such cases if we see or try to remove the buried cases. Some cases have been closed and some are buried which are still running in the court with pending decision. People become old and die without getting justice. This particular case might have been highlighted due to some dispute with the minister and his partners. Such facts come out in such a way only, but by that time it is too late and the damage is already done to the country and common people.

Can you believe the amount of scam…400 crore! How can a person get such a huge amount in such a short tenure? Don’t you think that due to such ministers the common man has lost faith in our government and tries to get a short route for his success? Due to these things the job opportunities are also less and people join Naxal route which, from their point of view is justified. If ministers in white-collars can cheat people and collect such a huge fund for their betterment, then Naxals are far better compared to them. They at least provide opportunities to their people and fight for their rights till their last blood. A common man pays all sorts of taxes which are levied by the government but still there is no protection for him, but such ministers are provided security with black cats and various other amenities. Where do these come from? Don’t you think it is because common people have to sacrifice?

Why are minister’s assets not checked fully? Even after disclosing their assets how come such huge funds are collected within a short period by them? What sort of measures does the government take for them? If a common person even steals some valuable he is treated as if he has committed a great sin. When such ministers make such huge grave mistakes, are they getting the same punishment? If not, then why? These ministers should be handed over to common people for punishment. Due to such type of ministers the common people also cannot do anything because they have compromised with their lives. The major problem in India is people get motivated with sweet words and promises which are never fulfilled by these ministers.

Just imagine what could have been done with the amount of 400 crore? We could have created better infrastructure and more jobs and opportunities which we need very strongly in the present scenario. Think about the people who are fighting day and night for our safety and life in the border. What do they get in life by doing so…nothing? Do you think they get good remuneration? No, not at all…yet they prefer to do their job. They love the country and the people that is what they get attracted to such jobs and fight till their last blood. But what happens after they retire or they die fighting in the battle field? Why are they or their families not given better opportunities? Nobody cares for them. These amounts should be utilised for such people who have struggled a lot, not for themselves, but for us. It will be better if they come back and we send such type of ministers in the border for fighting for our country. Do you think they will fight? No they won’t… Instead, they will sell our country one day. The person who can betray his own state can betray his country at any time. But we still prefer to choose them as leaders instead of some good and clean people.

What are we running for? Are we going to take this money, name and fame with us? Has God sent us to earth for such type of duties to perform? This is a clear sign of mankind coming to an end.

All ministers are not corrupt. But in today’s scenario you cannot trust any leader. Hope some good examples are followed and the youth of India do not take the shortest route to achieve success.

At the end I would like to say that this is not a revolt statement against any government. It should also think, if we have brought it into power, we are expecting some good measures from them. They should think and perform better for our country.
