I don't think that political system is the reason for backwardness in India it's the some of the corrupt politicians who joined politics only for their benefit. They rule for some years make their profit and leave our country from developing to developing status. I want to mention some.
Points by which we can reduce it.
1. We will have to very wise during elect our minister considering his background, education. Ultimately people have the ultimate power.
2. It is not the ministers only, we people have also the responsibility to our country, we should fulfill it.
Others reason I want to mention for backwardness are illiteracy, unemployment, population, economic unbalance.
|Sid said: (Jun 19, 2016)|
|Yaa. I am with the political system. It is not a responsible for the backward.
We all left in one home. Sometimes our family decision goes wrong then we do not say, my family, my home is not good not take decision right same here also. Our country political system is not bad it's good every time but. Some leaders doing to dirty to the whole system.
If the political system works with the construction than our country move forward but in every community, some members some people are present to oldest things.
Having thinking capabilities very poor, not understanding. What is good and what bad.
The main reasons for responsible to backward is that.
Our thinking capabilities.
Lack of education.
Lack of self-confident.
|Christina Yuto said: (Jun 18, 2016)|
|Well, according to my point view it is us who is responsible for the backwardness of our country. We lack to choose better leaders in our own area. Many of us just run behind the money and totally forget about the future of our own area. Forget about the nation we don't even think for the development of our own near n dear ones.|
|Bon Ngullie said: (Jun 12, 2016)|
|Hi friend, Bon Ngullie again.
Let me be very frank about this topic. In a democratic country like us, people fade wholly hang in politics. But so far the people of India found none to hang on. So the need of the hour is to raise Upright, honest, righteous, fearless, godly Indian to lead this great nation. Dishonest implementation of various schemes and projects means for our country developments is the worst example which our politicians are intentionally destroying our great nation in nexus with corrupt bureaucrats and local goons and mafias, Where is the accountability? If our people fairly utilized our resources, I think we would be ten times more developed than the United State of America.
May God Bless India. Amen.
|Dgupta said: (Jun 11, 2016)|
|All right here is a thought when we say politicians so what are they for in this country and for that matter in any country they are to ensure well-being of society and infrastructure of a country but instead of taking a note on what is happening deep down under skin in country (say public education which is wrecked) they kept themselves mere in "politics" as you know they are both executive and legislative body of this country they wield immense power but the keen desire to work for the people is lacking at least in most of them.
Our mostly paralysed democracy has a lot to do with the mindset of our politicians.
Well, it's not that all blame should be on them. Our native population to choose popularity over superiority and that give away to rich and/or uneducated crooked and sometimes educated crooked politicians.
|Manish Kawat said: (Jun 10, 2016)|
|No, I think it is 'corruption in political system' that is one of the reason but not the only one. We cannot put all the blame on the political system for all the problems. Our political system is one of the best in the best if remove corruption from it.
As far as backwardness is concerned there are many factors which are responsible for it like.
- Lack of basic education at lower economic level.
- Some of the old traditions in rural areas.
- The growing economic difference between lower and upper class.
- Unskilled youth.
|Akshay Mangal said: (Jun 9, 2016)|
As the topic "is our political system is the reason for our backwardness?".
If we talk about the political system then let me tell you frankly that our system is totally motivated by our great constitution. And our system has given equal opportunity to all citizen of India, freedom of speech and liberty to all. So system can't be blamed for the backwardness of the Indian continent.
Now the point is then who are responsible for this,
What I believe,
There are two points:
1) Execution of system may not be as per the constitution.
2) Those who are executing I mean executors (some of them not all) also may not be good or with a good spirit.
|Jayshri said: (Jun 6, 2016)|
|Our political system is the only system by which, at present we are in the queue of developing countries, we are touching the new heights in various field just because our government is making easy rules and regulations, making new laws to facilitate the procedures, creating opportunities for the backward communities, creates new awards to motivate people and in every field of education, medical facilities, and even in d direction to get rid off from unemployment our govt is making rules for easy Lones etc.
So now how we can say our political system is responsible for backwardness. ?
Our constitution rights and election commission and supreme court are the guards of the countries political system. And the other and most important thing are being the largest democracy it is our responsibility to choose the best and reliable candidate for making laws for us.
So for the backwardness of instead of political system individual is responsible who is unaware, don't verify the candidate before giving his/her vote, and just to escape from his duties and due to laziness gives the bribes and encourage the corruption.
|John_Gh said: (Jun 6, 2016)|
|Of course, no good can be expected from an institution headed by a bad leader and Politicians are the perfect example of a bad leader. Due to corrupt nature of politicians, the subjects have now adopted "Life in the Jungle" or " Everybody for himself" attitude.
You either take that bribe or be good and not take it, but the politician at the top will definitely take it, depriving a worthy course of seeing the light of the day.
But, who is the politician ?
The Politician is your father, sister, mother uncle, friend and yourself. Hence, until the human mindset of the aspiring leader is renewed, everybody will grow into a bad Politician.
Backwardness is not the fault of the Politician.
|Aaaa said: (Jun 5, 2016)|
|Whatever might be the issue, it will have positives as well as negatives. So we cannot solely put the whole blame on politicians. Maybe they are one of the reasons why we are still backward.
In support with the topic, I can say that money is the thing which makes political system worst. All the politicians just look for their status and hence this attitude leads to corruption by politicians.
In contradiction, people also play a major role i.e., in electing their leader. Before election politicians will be showering money on people and they believe that the help will be continued by them. But soon after that person get elected as a leader he stops caring about the poor. So people has to properly elect their leader.
|Sunil said: (Jun 5, 2016)|
|I do agree that the bad political system does lead to backwardness up to some extent. BUT what we should focus on, is how to make it better. We make the political system and then we criticise our choice. Rather than discussing what had happened we should think about how it will be in the future. Let me take an example. Suppose a kid gets ill, then people starts discussing that what he had eaten, how did it happen, etc. Instead of immediately curing him. In the same sense, our political system is ill. And we are the one who can cure it. As "APJ" use to say-" where there is richness in the heart, there is beauty in the character, where there is beauty in the character, there is harmony in the home, where there is harmony in the home, there is order in the nation and where there is order in the nation there is PEACE IN THE WORLD. What I want to say is the change comes from yourself. And we as a citizen make the system, not the system make us.|
|Sudhakara said: (Jun 4, 2016)|
Good evening, I am Sudhakar, I am going to speak against the topic.
In my opinion, Indian political system is very strong, we can say that politicians are corrupted, but not the political system. We can't just blame the political system for the corruption, we all have the option to choose a right candidate in an election, if we didn't choose the right one for the reason of caste or money, then it is our fault. Each person in India responsible for our backwardness.
There are much other reasons for our backwardness.
People in India are not utilizing the opportunities available in their hand. They are just looking for the perfect job.
The education system is not well defined, students are just thinking to become the doctor or an engineer to earn money, they are not thinking about the nation.
Many people who have studied in IIT/IIM are going to foreign countries to the shuttle. They utilized the resource of India to study and going to work in foreign countries.
Many people are not paying the tax on time, Tax is the main revenue to the government to utilize it for the development works in India. We can see we are ourselves responsible for our backwardness, not the political system alone.
Conclusion: We can't just blame our political system because we people only elect them only thing that we need to do is to elect the right candidate during the election. We should also work with responsibilities, without fully depending on the government. On another side, a government should also take initiatives to increase the entrepreneurs in our country, and take action to mitigate the brain drain.
|Deva said: (Jun 4, 2016)|
|Yes, the political system is one of the reasons for backwardness. I can give one example in our country there is a lot of black money some politicians has some black money. If politicians are good the country will lead to developing. If the leader is bad he is indirectly encouraging people having black money is good then people will follow same. Then it leads to the backwardness of the country.|
|Ann said: (May 30, 2016)|
|Hello, everyone present here.
As itself we can feel and experience the political system is now the way to corruption.
Which is totally eradicating the democratical lifestyle of our country, first of all the leaders are not of a loop character but just want to gain people support for a time being before elections they make rational stupid decisions and just want to sway away with peoples trust and respect, I don't support what some say that politics is for people, but the scenario now is it's just the way to make money and just kill each other by words or actions.
Guys, truly we are just loosing the politics which the word emboss on itself. It's a strong word with a lot of admiration.
|Sham Singh said: (May 29, 2016)|
I realize that our political system not responsible for any backwardness, we all are the main reason for any system's backward and progressive. Because we all make the system, the system is does not make us. After the make system, we all forgot our personal responsibility and made the excuse I have not the time to analysis the system or say it's not mine work. Everyone want to get his work as soon as possible by hook or crook. We are discussing here political system but how many people from us took the initiative to improve this? We are always to blame for our failure with an excellent excuse. The system is only a chain for the smooth work. In nowadays we read, listen and watch so many media clips on the base of corruption and scam etc. But this is only our general knowledge topics who is responsible for this. The political system is very wide even we never took the initiative to check our daily basis system like if someone had to go for a driving licence you could see their so many people came with high profile reference and they got their work done easily rest ones still waiting for their turns. In the end, we made us for system not system for us.
|Ram Singh said: (May 26, 2016)|
My dear, friends.
We are talking about political system. Is it responsible ? Yes but not fully.
First of all we need to know from where political system begins.
1. We choose leader only seeing caste, religion as well as how much benefit for only individual.
Then what will happen what it is right choice for us absolutely NO.
Now these candidates work their constituencies and the main intention of these leaders is only pass such scheme which is more benefitted for corruption.
2 Second reason is "Reservation".
Because in this time but it is main reason backwardness only for general caste.
Political leader increases reservation for only political mileage for some communities by which others communities have been lagging because there is no more job.
|Aishwarya Shinde said: (May 21, 2016)|
|According to me, our political system is little cause of backwardness.
I believe that if poverty will decrease then literacy will increase and ultimately unemployment will be decreased.
|Prem Sagar said: (May 18, 2016)|
|Indian politics spoil our educational system and everything which require for the good society. In short.|
|Alex said: (May 17, 2016)|
|After reading many views.
I imagine what India would have been if British didn't step more than Two Centuries ago on Indian soil. They were the one against casteism and therefore abolishing it. They were ruling us without any bias. In addition preserving the lands of tribals against Rich. As long as British were in India, casteism was dormant, and India was safe.
But as we see now, it was still in the brains of people then.
But we threw them out of India, thinking them as an external threat to our nation. At the cost of GROWING CASTEISM in our SOCIETY. And this very threat has engulfed whole India and its Ruling system.
Caste OR Religion is two soft edges in our People's brain. If any political party (especially corrupt SORRY all are corrupt) keeps its root to a particular caste or religion then YIPEE. They win. They rule (today's leading political party).
POWER can turn any person into filthy corrupt. No doubt.
So I think it's our INDIA. It's our political system. And it's our moral education.
|Areetik said: (May 16, 2016)|
|My opinion is that India is a very big country and its have many resources. Some people who have some political power they misuse this resources. So they are causing to be backwardness.|
|Sunny said: (May 16, 2016)|
|Is our political system reason for our economic downfall?
Obviously! YES. Our Indian constitution starts with a sentence "we the people of India" which is palpable that any good or bad must signifies us. Political system solely not responsible can be proven by the facts if we go through the election were we give precious votes to elect the person who not only govern us but country too.
In recent election we have seen that victorious party won by 35% of the capable strength of votes, then question arise, where are the rest votes? obviously, there are the person's who had didn't voted. This question needs to be answered. In Kerala, majority of the people not voted due to the non-availability of female candidates, possibly this is the reason for the upper question but is it for all states? This is vague in respect of other states regarding the same issues.
Our great pacifist leaders gave their whole life for good life, prepared a well stable constituency so that we live in an archaic environment still we seeing ourselves far lag behind of another country. This means we are not respecting their belongings. We clouding their beautiful constituency.
Our country is larger democracy in the world, even another country also thinks as a milestone.
Overall, we not need to copy them to how to bring growth in the economy but to make our own terms rule the world with our merits and the advantages which are absent in another country's.
|Neer Nandeha said: (May 14, 2016)|
|I don't think it will be right to blame Indian Politics solely for our backwardness.
1. Politics involves the major formulation of policies and their legalisation in the Parliament houses.
2. Every system is made of subsystems and elements, Instead of blaming from top to bottom, we should see through this from bottom to top. The elements need to be strong to form a compact and effective system.
3. The citizens involve in the damaging morals of action. Bribing, corruption is done by the most significantly elected personnel of high educational qualifications are independent and are not affected by politics, mostly.
4. It is critical to improving at an elemental level before blaming the politics alone, whatsoever.
|Mohan said: (May 11, 2016)|
|Our preamble starts with the lines of "We the people of India. " means we ourselves adopted the constitution by framing this existent political system. We built a beautiful house and if there is any vastu problem, will go for modification rather than demolishing. The same example applies here in Indian political system. Our political system is blend of 64 countries. We are following the principles of major developed nations like America, UK etc, but where we are lacking?
Poor coordination between ruling party and Opposition. Ruling party and opposition should go hand in hand in implementing the programmes whoever comes to rule.
Programmes which are launched by Govt are not reaching the targeted population.
|Guru said: (May 9, 2016)|
|What I felt and understand the topic is already we know happened here but we don't know what to do.
If you will see meticulously watching the election. For example, majority party won major parts constituency in the states. But winning (majority) party got only 30% voters among 100% population remaining 70% population hate the won party but here majority party was ruled. This trick was used all elections go to backwardness India.
India has different cultures and languages and also huge population. So we won't follow developed countries rules and regulations.
We have to create own unique ideas based on our society. Then only clear corruptions and its solutions.
|Neeraj Vats said: (May 6, 2016)|
|We can't blame politics for the backwardness. As everything has two ways positive or negative. We should be true with our part as a daily life routine we ignore the moral duties that one should perform as a vigil citizen of a democracy so that others can be saved as they are lacking in awareness. The government makes policies for our welfare there is no point of blaming them without implementation and only we can implement these rules. As for an example, we know that child labour is a bad and we still tolerate it every day in one or more points. At that of time, we don't follow the duty rules. The other example is that bribe id unethical and unjust but some of us just take it lightly and even pay to get our work done somehow so the only govt cannot be blamed for backwardness we too are responsible for that.|
|Umeshkt said: (May 5, 2016)|
|Hi, folks, this is a topic worth discussion as the state of country and quality of leadership in a country are both dependent on same building component which is the People of this country.
A building made of poor material will never stand tall, however meticulously it is planned. In a similar way, the country we live in will never develop till we, the basic fiber of the country are developed. Gone are the days when a king planned and ran entire nation in his own ways, good or bad. The present world is run by people and takes the path which majority of its people decide.
This political system was implemented by our leaders who brought this country into existence after a long period of slavery. They fought for good and passed on to us a very strong foundation of democracy. Facts reveal that we have lost ourselves to greed, malice, fear and lost our sense of vision. We forgot the quality of life and broke threads of society to build cocoon nest of our own. A population has grown ten folds and so have each vice in society. However, moral and social education have not grown at the same pace.
I agree that politicians in present day country are causing a lot of damage to the progress of the country. But, the question is who elected them to decide the fate of the country?
It's up to us to choose good leaders and bring our country among leading countries.
|Dipika said: (Apr 10, 2016)|
|As per my point of view, just before all the things think that what we are doing. Everyone just thinks like I, me and myself. The government gives many of the facilities to us but we can't use them properly. We just do our work and then just forget.
We all know child labour is offensive for ex. If we are standing on any chat corner and eating something and if any child cleaning plates in front of us for that moment we just feel bad and then we just pay for our dish and then forget all whatever we see before some time. This is one of the most backwardnesses in us. If we are well educated and still we are behaving like this then we are responsible for our backwardness only.
|Deepak said: (Apr 10, 2016)|
I do not support that politics is the reason behind our backwardness if I say it, indirectly I am blaming on myself because these politicians come trough the same society where we live. They are a politician because we make them. So brothers tell me how can we say that they are and their system is a reason behind OUR backwardness.
If I blame someone for our backwardness then I want to say that, it is Racism. It is Illiteracy.
|Radha Mohan said: (Apr 9, 2016)|
|Hi, friends. I am Radha Mohan.
Our topic is political system responsible for backwardness. In my point of view, they are the major part of this but not fully. Peoples are also responsible as child labor dowry are not allowed but some selfish person takes dowry and some people send their children to work instead of sending him to school to be educated and think wisely about him his family and country so that ha can take decision wisely. And most of the educated person try to avoid politics then how can wee blame uneducated politician. Many of people at time of election want to solve out their problem in favor of their vote. So we have to take responsibility and try to think beyond of our selfishness.
|Bon Ngullie said: (Apr 5, 2016)|
|Hi friends, I'm Bon Ngullie from Nagaland.
Wel, our topic "Is our Political System Reason for our Backwardness" is worthy to be debated and awareness spread throughout India till we get a positive outcome. To my opinion, the answer to the topic is 100% Yes. Let us focus our attention once in our electioneering system. I think electioneering system in India is nothing but asking and giving money for the precious votes. The mindset we have all is not for development and progress in the real sense BUT money and money. Come election, check out yourself, what our people do when a fellow politician come to our village for campaigning, our people intention is to MEET THE CANDIDATE in secrecy, FOR WHAT? to soft whisper in the candidate's ear "if only you can solve my/our immediate needs now at this moment, my/our votes belongs to nobody" (deal completed). So, folks, this is our political system and whether you all agree with me or not, we are deeply rooted in money mindset "THE DANGER IS THIS FOR OUR PEOPLE NEVER TRY TO LOOK BEYOND THIS ARENA" Of course false promises and false assurances were given by every political party to do this or that if voted to power but which the really don't do even if elected to power is also another factor to blame for our political backwardness. Another great set back of our system is "cornered politics" - tribalism, clanism, communism, etc, etc. Yet another factor which is tearing our political system is - goondasim politics.
Wel, folks we have many more factors to be added but the best thing that we can do is, if we can say this - I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR INDIA'S BACKWARDNESS SO I WILL TAKE THE STAND TO REBUILD MY COUNTRY POLITICAL SYSTEM TO "FORWARDNESS".
God bless India. AMEN.
|Faizan Ahmad said: (Apr 3, 2016)|
A politician is not solely responsible for the backwardness of our country but it is on first which is responsible for backwardness. Today we are seeing politicians are implementing the laws and reform but we are not taking it seriously for Ex. Child labour is offensive but I know lots of people who send his child for work in cities. Are politicians responsible for this? Today no one educated people are interested in becoming politician then how we can blame to uneducated politicians.
On other side lots of politicians who are not taking responsibility of his post. They are doing wrong things like corruption, cast &religion based politics.
So there is need of awareness between both politicians as well as public to take responsibility for changing India from developing to developed.
|Sachin said: (Apr 3, 2016)|
I would like to add some points to our discussion on "Is political system responsible for our backwardness".
According to me, we can not blame on political system rather we can say yes in some cases politicians are responsible for it but again I would like to say we are solely responsible for this because the citizens of India are not aware of choosing the right candidate among the nominated rather they prefer to give vote to the candidate of their caste.
There are many other reasons behind the backwardness of our country that I would like to list out:
2) Dowry system.
3) Sticking to our old culture and nonadaptation of globalization etc.
|Richa Bajpai said: (Apr 1, 2016)|
|Hi Richa here,
I Believe that politics and people of the nation are hands in hand. Politics is responsible for the backwardness of the nation but on the other hand people are also responsible for the backwardness. For Example, Government is providing us metro services but it's us who making it dirty. There is a regular announcement in the metro not to throw papers in the metro or not to eat in the metro but still people are continuously are doing this, without thinking that they are making their own loss. In the same way, there are many example if we throw light in them which shows that Government is not fully responsible for the backwardness.
We can help to make our country more developed if we focus on Education, Laws and other factors.
|Ram Jaiswal said: (Apr 1, 2016)|
|1st we think ourself that what I am do for our country to reduce the backwardness then we got a right to blame the politics or any other. I mean if public are motivated by a young educated person then backwardness can be reduced. Due to lack of motivation against the wrong term. Public is responsible for this not our politicians. It's easy to blame anyone but prove it by ourself is very hard.|
|Pintu Kumar said: (Mar 27, 2016)|
|I don't think that politics is only the reason for our backwardness. But yeah it plays an important role in the development. So we can discuss only the positive and negative impact of the politics.
The initiatives were taken by government surely help to build the nation.
The correct decision was taken by the govt. Influence the development.
Take for eg. Indira Gandhi gave to manage rupee against the dollar when there is a lot of food starvation in India to export the food products. But it could be managed by some other way.
While on another hand, some existing laws make it very difficult to cope up with this as.
There is no need of any qualification or education for a minister while you have to clear exams even for a post of peon.
Also, the caste based reservation system is one of the problems for our backwardness.
Also, if a minister wants to implement any law for our goodwill, the system is so complex that it got lost in somewhere within the system.
I want to add another point that we said our system is corrupt but my friend we are also equally responsible for this. So we have to equally come forward and take action against it.
So, a good decision maker, powerful, and have ability to keep his word strongly in front of others can only do something better for the nation.
Thanks to all!
|Malay said: (Mar 25, 2016)|
|Yes, our political system is responsible for our backwardness because of the following reasons.
1) Reservation of those communities which belongs to politicians community.
We are also responsible for our backwardness because we are unaware, lazy and have no knowledge towards the power of the political system.
To improve our political system, we must choose those politicians who are willing to develop INDIA, not an individual community.
|Neha said: (Mar 21, 2016)|
|1) Corruption arises not because of the political leaders but because of us who agree to pay them to bribes to get our things done early. We are more responsible for it and we are the only one who can eradicate this vector-borne disease.
2) The need for getting a decision approved at every other stage brings transparency to the system.
|Mayuri said: (Mar 21, 2016)|
|Our political system is the major cause of our backwardness:
1) Uneducated politicians, unable to take proper decisions.
2) Corrupted leaders.
3) With the change in the government after every election, the rules and decisions get changed. As a result, the decisions are taken but can never get implemented.
4) Need for the approval of the decision taken by a ruling party at every stage and constant opposition by the opposition parties creates a large amount of delay in implementing the action.
|Srishti said: (Mar 18, 2016)|
|Political system is not only the single factor for the backwardness of our country, yes it is responsible in some fraction but other factors also matter like the illiteracy of our country people should know all the rights of their. But it is true that the major role is of our political system.|
|Znas said: (Mar 17, 2016)|
|Blaming the political system of India means you are blaming the constitutional democracy which the country follows. The backwardness is a relative term which should be carefully defined.
That being said system which is plagued with avarice of the politicians, blatant corruption, leg pulling, back and forth between parties in power, etc these do not contribute to the upliftment of the country. Some of these things happen because of the system. Some don't. Blaming the system doesn't get us anything. Each system has pro's and con's. We the people, have to work together to get as much good as possible out of the system.
|Maruti Talwar said: (Mar 16, 2016)|
1) I think only politicians and literacy are not the reason for our country backwards, instead of telling like that we might say that we are responsible for our country backwards, because we are staying here not someone else. Instead of blaming or scolding politicians or someone, just think that, what I suppose to do for my nation, for my people. Till now our valuable vote is wasted for politicians now we are thinking about our nation. We have to think this before to vote a candidate.
2) how we can think that the person who is educated will do good things only for our nation even I can also think.
3) The first thing is that we are wasting our valuable vote. Instead of voting a right person who is fit to serve nation, we are voting our votes to cast candidates.
|Sachin Pasare said: (Mar 15, 2016)|
|Hello Friends, first of all there is no literacy in our country, that's why these politicians use our people. When they know people are knowing about their corruption these politicians use people to divide and rule. That's why we Indians are not growing. The people of India chose those people to vote whose cast same as they're cast. And the main reason of this is reservation. People who acquire 98% is jobless and people who acquire only 60 % is officer in government.
So reservations should be for poor people not for any particular caste.
|Raju said: (Mar 15, 2016)|
Backwardness is definitely due to the dirty political system. Even after 67 years of independence people are not fully aware about the systems of working. The politicians never think about this issue and due to the lack of awareness in people the politicians gets the full benefits of government policies as well as misuse their powers. The benefits of government policies should be utilized at the ground levels for which these framed and feedback must be given at every administrative levels honestly. If all the monetary benefits released by a government for the people are utilized utmost satisfaction the level of backwardness will removed from the country.
|Gopal Aggarwal said: (Mar 12, 2016)|
I think there is lack of honest and educated people in our political system and to overcome from this problem if we teach to our children to make a good leader and make a part of our nation system and correct our country system and help the peoples of our nation. Then I think our children will start thinking about our nation and nation peoples. So finally backwardness will definitely reduce.
|Arindam Ganguly said: (Mar 11, 2016)|
|We don't have any right to always blame our political system. Actually we people are just like a frog in a its own hole. We want to live here and die here and we are making our childs like that. After the birth we decide what he/she will be in the future. We always think our child will be doctor or engineer or service man and live his happy life with his family with a huge amount of salary.
Nobody thinks our child will be politician one day help our nation to grow up. And then in the morning we say that politics makes our life miserable. You don't have any right to say like that go and clean then you can say something. Politics is not always makes our nation backwards, its the system and other aspects we have to think about.
|Kunjal Gawande said: (Mar 10, 2016)|
I think that there is no Political system reason affect our backwardness I just want simply say that its just effected by our lack of knowledge and lack of education, if you have knowledge of your rights and you are well educate then you will never go to backwardness.
|Shweta said: (Mar 8, 2016)|
According to my point of view, we can't blame the political system and it would be quite unfair to mix the political system with the politicians, yes I know political system is made by the politicians itself but we can't ignore the good works done by the honest politicians for the country.
Secondly it is the attitude of youth which keep themselves deprive of voting and end up complaining about the system. In present scenario not a single person among us wants to join politics, everyone wants a secured job and a happy life ever after. So I am unable to understand the fact that how the system alone is responsible for backwardness. So I would like to conclude it by saying that its not only the politicians solely or the system alone which is responsible for backwardness but many other key factors that should be known.

I don't think politics is the main reason for our backwardness. We are backward because of our fault. We are not utilizing our valuable vote effectively in election. Instead of giving vote to right candidate we give our vote to that candidate who belongs to our caste. The best example we could see in BIHAR that how again jungle razz come back in politics in 2015. Everyone knows that how jungle razz ruled over BIHAR for 15 years and almost throw BIHAR backward for 15 years. Same example we could see in central also i.e. congress ruled over INDIA around 60 years. I remember that when INDIA become independent that time 1 rupees=1 USD but now 68 rupees=1 USD.
Almost all countries have political system and the countries who are developed because the people from developed nations are educated and they aware from the background of all political leader and they utilize their vote the right candidate. That's why they are developed and we are developing nation.
One main reason for our backwardness is the quelling of casteism with one-another and other is during striking we destroy our government property. For example recently in HARYANA people burned many buses and destroyed many government properties.
So, we can't say that political system is the main reason for our backwardness.
|Saibaba said: (Mar 1, 2016)|
1). It is true that India is backward because of politicians. See the qualifications of politicians across India. Expect for few like Arvind kejriwal, Manohar parrikar, SM krishna etc no politician is from any premier institution. Itself shows about the stands of politics in India.
2). In India first of all for peon job a required qualification is needed. But the highly valuable VOTE doesn't need any qualification. This is the main cause of all miseries. When constitution was drafted not than 5% of total population was educated, so to give everybody a right, the educational qualification was kept a side and vote was given to every body. Since after 66 years of Indian constitution in existence the same rule is implemented and every uneducated is given the right to vote which is been misused. A person who cannot have one square meal, how can he change the fate of nation by voting.
3). Corruption is the worst thing to happen to mankind and this is prevalent in India. So a corrupted nation cannot compete and it will be underdeveloped for another 1000 years.
4). In India every body is greedy and doesn't bother for others. Sometimes it is astonishing that in spite of we having so many gods and their sacrifices, the greediness in people is not going and this is another major backwardness.
|Dhananjai Pandey said: (Feb 29, 2016)|
According to me, only politician does not cause of backwardness. I think the illiteracy is the main reason of backwardness. In my country we are voting to special religion who is not good for any country. If a politician will not educated then the backwardness will grow up in my country. Reservation also causes of backwardness. In my opinion in our country we do not concentrate on girls' education. That is very harmful to us. Please thought that that's where women will not educated there the condition of that country can no better in any condition. At many places politicians also causes of backwardness because a politician is rumering on the religion. And gets vote by Indian people. At least we can say that the politician is not 100% responsible for backwardness, but some are placed they are wrong.
|Rashmi said: (Feb 28, 2016)|
I agree that politicians are responsible for backwardness of our country because there are some people over there who after knowing their duties never look or gives importance to them. Rather criticize the other one. This is also applicable to us.
Together with politicians, some of citizens for their own benefits & greed elects the one who fulfill their short term needs & also some people support the only one who belongs to their caste.
There are also many politicians who gives us better advice & bring new laws but then ultimately it should equally be understood by us & followed accordingly but some of us think.
So blaming only politicians is not right but also changing our mind & doing our duty ourselves without any kind of corruption or greed can also help us in improving backwardness to certain extent. "Something is better than nothing!".
|Mohan said: (Feb 26, 2016)|
|As per my opinion not only a politics is reason for backwardness there are we don't have awareness obout politics, so it's mistake done by us. We can't blame of our politicians because we know about his background even though, we are elected him for taking money and liquor or religion, I agree few people were vote for honest but they don't decide the result. Now tell to me who is the reason for our backward.|
|Benazir said: (Feb 25, 2016)|
|In my point of view, political system is not only a reason. Because every individual has right to vote. So we have to choose a right leader for our country. You don't realize who are all good and who are all bad. You can choose a NOTA option. The government should proceed the reelection. We select the good one to improve our country.|
|Maran Sowthri said: (Feb 23, 2016)|
|Yes I agree with you my friend Venkatesh as you said most of the politicians concentrating on their own growth and they attract the people by introducing some schemes which will not be useful in our country's growth.|
|Amit S. said: (Feb 23, 2016)|
|Of course, there is no doubt, they think only themselves.
In today, there is large scope to social development through political career but maximum leaders of our country compete to one to another that who will more earn during their term. It is simple example. You can think that how much property of representative before as the elected member of parliament and how much after completed his term?
|Ishani said: (Feb 23, 2016)|
|I feel political system is definitely one of the reasons for our backwardness. There has been a concerted effort to keep certain sections of the society backward and it all stems out of the vested interests of our politicians. The reservation system in our country has been misused tremendously for furthering political interests.
If Ambedkar's goal was to uplift certain sections of the society within a time frame of 10 years why would there be such a political consensus on increasing the the quota limit in various states.
I do not think citizens are responsible because we elect what is being offered to us. None of the candidates are better than the rest yet we have to choose someone so we try to elect the lesser evil.
Until and unless politicians are also held responsible and accountable for the failures in their tenure which are always innumerable if I mention. Nothing can pull us out of this backwardness.
|Venkatesh said: (Feb 17, 2016)|
|Definitely yes, maximum number of politicians are only concentrating on their own growth and nobody is caring about the nation. They see their own investments and how much they can gain with in a limited amount of time.|
|Arun Kumar said: (Feb 16, 2016)|
|According to me every Indian is responsible for backwardness. If we look around world, many countries reached at very high level in terms of technology. From the starting our government didn't focus on education and I think this is one of the reason.
In India skills percentage is only 3.5% which is very low as compared to the world. On the other hand other countries like China, South korea, America they have really good percentage of skill rate. So for improving in terms of education or business we have to change ourself and government too.
|Suraj Gupta said: (Feb 16, 2016)|
In my view, blames on the politics is not even correct because we guys select our leader then its own responsibility how we select our leader which work according to growth of our backwardness.
In our country many peoples are ranging to illiteracy, corruption and politics system is also affects our economy.
If we doing our work with responsibility and select a good leader which work according to people demand. Then we can resolve our backwardness.
|Amrita said: (Feb 14, 2016)|
|The second largest nation in terms of manpower, India, follows democracy as its political system, a government of the people, for the people, and by the people. So we cannot blame our political system for our backwardness because it is we the people who have selected our leaders who in turn make policies for us.
No doubt post independence we were rendered too vulnerable but even after a lapse of almost 69yrs we have failed to do with evils such as unemployment, hunger, poverty, corruption which continue to haunt us even today.
Despite so many policies for our upliftment we have not emerged as a developed nation. It is not the political system to be blamed for our backwardness rather we the people who chose our leaders considering short term advantages or based on caste and creed instead of choosing development as a parameter for selection.
|Sajal Golas said: (Feb 13, 2016)|
I think the reason behind our backwardness are in following points:-
2. Lackness of awareness in people's.
3. Give vote only based on religion, caste etc.
4. Corrupted leaders.
|Shiva said: (Feb 11, 2016)|
Blaming the political party and its leadership is the wrong part that we are playing blaming yourself could be the best.
No political party is strong enough without our support the main reason for our backwardness is we ourself because we only select the leader if we start rotating the leadership then the leader and the part will start working.
As Nobody thinks of joining politics if we want to change the system we have to get involved it the system our efforts can change each and every thing if we think only the leader will do all the things and we will not think of our society then we too are responsible for that.
|Uttam said: (Feb 9, 2016)|
|In the ancient times, India was the richest country as far as knowledge, wealth, science, innovations are concern, but king's' greed for status n reigns lead internal wars and lead to British rule. The same way politicians misuses the backwards for vote bank. Funds do not reach to people as the same given by the government.
Not only the politicians but people are also responsible for their backwardness, because 'Everyone wants to change the world without thinking about the change in one's own'. Sometimes, the family conditions like poverty, unemployment, expensiveness also.
|Pradhyum said: (Feb 8, 2016)|
|The whole slot of people. Just blame each other and each crab pulls the other down it's not just the rights that we the people have got but to sincerely perform our duties too.
Just for the sake of being the pole star is not enough people should support equality and be loyal to their country weather to stake upon their life. Just the mob needs to improve the politics will gain through.
|Rakesh said: (Feb 8, 2016)|
In my point of view, political system also a part of our backwardness but not completely.
The following are the key features of our backwardness:
Corruption: In our country most of the citizen and employees are addicted to the corruption by which they can complete their task illegally.
Politicians: Most of the people coming into politics with an agenda to earn money and not for doing something for the society, such candidates concentrates only on money what they invested to come into position and how much they earned.
Illiteracy: Poor people can't able to earn money for education of their kids, in such a case how can we think about development, this is the main topic where we have to concentrate a lot.
|Kumar Sanjeev said: (Feb 8, 2016)|
|No one is good, no one is bad. We decide according to our will. We say we need good politicians, we need to remove corruption. But have anyone seriously felt about it:
For example: Without money, we can't stand in front of billionaire. We say money doesn't matter, but does it not? Ask yourself and we will get the answer. Saying is very easy rather than finding way.
Hence instead of changing people, if each person changes himself, everything will be changed. No one has to do anything, believe me!
|Mayank said: (Feb 6, 2016)|
|I think political system needs better people, we have to see who is doing write and who is doing wrong and who is going to create our better future.
Some people just sell their votes for money, they should know that they are selling their country. So in a way we have to include some rules in our politics that may open the gate for our future.
|Ritu said: (Feb 4, 2016)|
|"Being greedy leads to destruction", keeping this point in mind I would keep my words as, only the politicians are not the reason for backwardness its the whole mob that leads India to degradation.
It's a fact that politicians not all but many of them enter into such stream only for money but how do they get successful for their motive, by us, if we stop going to them to get our work done in return of a huge amount offered they won't snatch your money and by hook or by crook they will have to do their duty.
So if we are giving them chances to move forward for their greediness then they are not that stupid to refuse good offers. Your greediness can change your mind in a second and however good you may be you will surely think of going for the wrong option.
Because you don't know whether your work will be done or not but you will be sure for a handful of money and that is the reason why people offer money because they think by offering a heavy amount a politician would give his best to get the work done. No one in this huge globe is sitting for getting your work done and if you wish to get it done choose the right step and then expect the same from others.
|Hironmoy Das said: (Feb 4, 2016)|
From my point of view backwardness of our country is to some extent because of our political parties because they are so much indulge in corruption to make money and look after their own benefits that they hardly care to look after the issues and problems of common people they just don't even care to understand it this is leading to ours backwardness in each and every sector whether it be economic, education, defence etc.
In one word they had forgotten their prime duties, this is just one part of the coin I think we common people are also responsible for it because we just say "there should be change in the system" but no one actually dares or rather takes any initiative to change it so in one our negligence is encouraging corruption day by day.
|Lannister said: (Feb 1, 2016)|
|The political system alone should not be blamed for our backwardness. Maybe corrupt politicians somewhat bring about a backwardness but they are just a start towards the whole cycle. We are also to be blamed for the backwardness.
If we say that political system is the the reason for our backwardness, why don't we bring about a change to the system? If we are too lazy to bring about a change, then even we are contributing towards backwardness.
|Kapil Mehta said: (Feb 1, 2016)|
From my point of view, the politician is not only responsible for our backwardness because we use the our government. Some people vote for money, cast and religion and the choose candidate also works for the recovering money they spent during the election.
So change the altitude of people then automatically reduce our backwardness because development or backwardness firstly depend people's altitude not government.
|Mrinalini Lal said: (Feb 1, 2016)|
|In my point of view political parties are also the main reason for our country backwardness because We the people of INDIA believes in others instead of their self confidence. This is the main reason the political parties are now being the main reason they only think about themselves, they don't think about the future of his country they are only receiving money in different ways and spoiling the future of INDIA.
So I think We should be united for improvement in our country. We should not believe any political parties.
|Sommyajit said: (Feb 1, 2016)|
|It would be very naive if we blame our political system for our backwardness as a country. Neither can we blame the political leaders. It is us the common people of India who is to blame for our lack of exposure globally because we are the ones who elect our leaders.
Our political system gives us the right to elect the leader of our choice and more often than not we don't choose them wisely. Our mind sways from the actual motive and gets tangled is aspects like caste, religion etc when we finally choose our leaders. We often get caught in their mind games and end up making mistakes.
Let's us also not forget we've also chosen some great leaders in the past and hopefully will do in the near future. It is our responsibility to choose our leader and if anyone is to blame for our backwardness, unfortunately it's we the people of India.
|Priya said: (Feb 1, 2016)|
|There are many uneducated politicians in our system who are working for the power and money but not for the development of the country. Not only politicians we are also the reason for our country backwardness because we are selecting these corrupt leaders. The funds released for the education of poor people are not reaching them.
Illiteracy is the main reason for our backwardness. There is a saying if a girl is educated then the whole family will be educated. So atleast if a single person of a family is educated then it surely helps in developing the country.
|Ghanshyam Savaliya said: (Jan 29, 2016)|
This is Ghanhsyam.
According to my point of view, lack of education in our country is the reason for our backwardness. But for this poor literacy ration our political system is responsible. Hence in a way our political system is responsible for our backwardness.
|Hardik Patel said: (Jan 27, 2016)|
This is Hardik,
As per my point of view we should not blame to political parties for the backwardness I know most of them are corrupted but we have selected them or some of us were not go for voting also.
And if I talk about backwardness than if we change our attitude than I don't think that politicians can interrupt us. For ex. If we will not give bribe to any government officer then corruption will destroy from the root itself.
|Ashish Srivastav said: (Jan 27, 2016)|
According to me we people responsible for our backwardness because we choose our government and during the election mostly people choose government according to their caste, religion because such people do not think for the growth of their country but they only think about their caste and religion growth and that is why government also do partiality between people every people should always think about our country.
If any government is not good for our country then tell them we don't need such government because if there is people there is government and if there is no people there is no government.
|Prashant said: (Jan 27, 2016)|
|According to my view of point the politics only this politics. We have to change our mindset and develop a skill of progressing every sphere of life without thinking this stupid politics. We should make an auto governing government. The system of doing will be change automatically.|
|Surya Tej said: (Jan 27, 2016)|
Surya Tej here, from newly born 29th state Telangana.
We cannot blame our Political System as it is same as when it was there before 1947 and after with some little changes, but changes are only Political Leaders (who are executing) , their determination towards public service, intention behind their entrance to Politics. Because of such useless, corrupted leaders even highly educated and determined Govt employees also become lazy, corrupted. And more ever people also don't have attitude of demanding or questioning leaders/employees for their rights.
|Takshak said: (Jan 26, 2016)|
This is me Takshak.
In my opinion political system is somewhere responsible for backwardness cause every political party first looks their own benefit after this they care about our country.
We choose them to make our country better but they use to blame each other.
If they find a corrupt candidate in their party then they try to protect that person.
|Abhijeet Chopade said: (Jan 26, 2016)|
Happy Republic Day to all of you.
According to me, firstly we have need to come front and should have take responsibility to change the system. Our political leaders do development only in their region. They should understand their duty. We select them as our leader but many of them did not work well. Also, we are responsible for that because we never ask any questions them. We have to choose them by their work.
|Himanshu said: (Jan 26, 2016)|
In my opinion it's not only the political parties responsible for our backwardness yet they have a big hand in it. I think we ourself are responsible for what happens to us, as we are the ones who select the persons working in the political parties. I always ask myself a question, "If the politicians are corrupt am I the one serving for the country's development with full integrity". And the answer is not satisfactory.
So according to me corruption is the reason for our backwardness which exist within each one of us whether we are politician or common man cause we would have been doing the same if we were in place of the politicians.
|Abhishek said: (Jan 24, 2016)|
We cannot blame our political system. They try their best to provide better services to the people. Now time has changed. Before corruption persisted every now and then, but now we have better mass media, press, who are capable of unleashing and reporting the truth to the people very quickly. We also have stronger opposition parties who are always ready to make noise and shout even if they get small hint of corruption. So we can say that every action and event by the government is transparent.
|Thasin said: (Jan 22, 2016)|
|I will say political system was actually not a reason behind our backwardness. We can't deny the fact that the previously existed political systems after independence have done a great duty for the growth of our country.
It is the voters who gave their votes to less eligible persons and made the democracy weaker one and so the political system became a reason for backwardness. If we want to change this it actually requires a great effort to bring out the massive change.
I think by including political systems in children's education, we can bring this change in India. And so making the political systems as backbones.
|Kundan said: (Jan 21, 2016)|
According to me, unfortunately our political system is somewhat responsible behind backwardness of our country. We have some politicians who working in our system are corrupted. Lots of criminal cases are there on some politicians in our country. Actually it seems very shameful.
But somewhat we people are also behind of it. Because we had selected them. Because of their corruption and illegal things our country could not progress in good as much we expect. So while electing the person we must check record of that politician so that he/she will run our country in well approach.
|Manisha said: (Jan 20, 2016)|
This is Manisha from Indore,
According to me we people can't blame a politician party for the backwardness because the political parties come through we people. We are selecting them so we are the people for the backwardness.
Their should be a proper management system for a politician parties too because we often see that an uneducated or not highly qualified person is a member of that party so this is the point to be noticed in our country.
And obviously the corruption causes the major negativity in India because backwardness is not always about an uneducated person but by the educated and greedy people too.
|Raaj said: (Jan 20, 2016)|
|Most probably NO.
We can't judge anyone or to make a decision what is True or what is False?
Because politics comes from our side only, infact we are habituated with the politics we knowingly or unknowingly are part of it, if we do any politics then it's oK, but if any other. Then it's wrong, we starts blaming to that individual for.
If I am wrong then lets takes an example of any individual or yours itself, I am sure you also did something related to politics or corruption in your past might be in school, college, office, police station, with traffic police, RTO, and many more places, you found yourself in it.
The fact is that we are the part of this system and the system is very clear to all, if we follow the rules of system then there is no issue of backwardness, but the problem is if we.
Then only, it is next to impossible for Indians because in our country one is try to do something good then, 100's are ready to nabbed and take him back. So at the end I want to suggest try to follow the rules even if any other not!
|Geeta said: (Jan 13, 2016)|
|There are many reasons for our backwardness and political system also a part and parcel.
1. I would like to mention that if there is an empowered youth with good ideas, he might receive very good support from people.
2. Corruption should be eliminated in any aspect of an individual.
3. Should overcome the case where:the decision-making is quick but the implementation is not.
|Nitin Solanki said: (Jan 13, 2016)|
|Political system can be reason for backwardness in some manner and can't be in some way.
Suppose our political system is ideal means very clean, no corruption officer. Each one politician wants to improve every citizen's condition. So they will make programme to give benefit to people. But if this people are don't have knowledge about the programme from which they can get benefits then what politician can do. So illiteracy is the reason for backwardness.
Also due to corruptness of some politician, people are not getting benefits of particular programme.
|Khushboo said: (Jan 12, 2016)|
|Yes political system is the reason of our backwardness but not only because of politicians, because of every citizen of this country. We are talking about illiterate politicians but how many of us are willing to take the charge?
Youth of our country who is educated and can bring a change is not at all interested in this political system. So the reason of our backwardness are we. What we need is an educated public who can vote for the right person and an educated leader who can be an asset.
|Srabanti Bhowmick said: (Jan 12, 2016)|
|Yes I think political parties and politicians of our country are responsible for our backwardness. India is a democratic country, in India every man is a hero, because he can make a change by voting. But many people don't vote properly, or I can say that they can't vote properly, because some people of some political parties thread them to give his vote to them. I mean are we their servants or what.
Because of this things people can't choose their selected eligible members. And some non educated people come in the position, but its fine for themselves, but its not fine for our country's goodness. They thinks that they are the Gods, they do every thing to steal money except development of our country, corruption takes place that's why.
So my point is, if people can't vote for their own country and they don't have the right to choose the right one for the country, then in which country do we live, is it democracy or rubbish. If we really want to see our country to develop, we must stand for our own, our own position, for that power which the constitution gave us. "If our thoughts will develop, our nation will be developed naturally". And nobody have to blame anybody for the backwardness of country, cause they themselves will know that what is happening that's there decision.
|Shivani Bhat said: (Jan 10, 2016)|
|It would not be right to say that politicians are a reason for our backwardness because there are many who contribute towards development of society. Yes, it would be fair to say that a majority of them are a reason for backwardness. What has led to the same is fake promises made by the politicians to fool the public.
Lack of education in rural areas has major impact on the mentality of people. There have not been enough reforms to improve the social and financial backwardness of people. Need of the hour is to improve literacy rate in India and make people aware of the drawbacks of our current system. Unless the politicians are forced to change for the better, the problem will persist forever.
|Rounak Gupta said: (Jan 10, 2016)|
|In my opinion we don't blame to political system for our backwardness but that the fault of citizen because we have to right to choose your good leader who do well for our country.|
|Da1 said: (Jan 8, 2016)|
|I don't accept with many of this people yes I agree some politicians are corrupted and are reasons for the backwardness of the people The people chooses their leader based on their thinking or sometimes forcefully and in a country like India it is even more difficult to say exactly how the people vote.
We have choose our leader who is more educated and having innovative thinking rather than his experience in the field of politics it is in our hands to select the eligible person to the power. People should not sell their most valuable vote which gives power to the person who is not eligible for the position.
|Mounika said: (Jan 7, 2016)|
|Yes, politics are one major reason for our backwardness, they are many illiterate here and ignorant people who are ruling our country. Majorly educated people support them bow for them and there power increases. How can a leader makes there followers educated who by himself is not.|
|Sree said: (Jan 6, 2016)|
|As my point of view yes political system is one of the reason of or backwardness because most of the leaders are uneducated. In our country is no qualification for the politician if a person has a money he can became a politician but he doesn't know how to develop the nation.
Most of the leaders are corrupted minded so they caused to the illegal activities, if we want to develop any thing the money is mainly needed so most of the people are moving to the foreign.
|Sanket said: (Dec 30, 2015)|
|I fell the democratic system is responsible for backwardness because whenever a ruling party tries to implement some good initiatives, they are being opposed by n number of different organizations.
I will explain this with an example that India had railway network before china but if you see today they have a more advanced railways than us that is all because of communism and want to end by saying there is intolerance in India with respect to development rather than with respect to caste and religion.
|Sushma said: (Dec 29, 2015)|
According to me political science is not the only reason for backwardness but illiteracy is also one of the reason for it. Especially at the time of elections many rural people are attracted for money, gifts etc. So before elections they must arrange meetings in rural areas to explain about the elections and its importance so that they can elect right person.
|Neel said: (Dec 29, 2015)|
|It may be rather than to blame our political system we should think on operators of that system means authorized persons, users and we also. System makers have been selected by us and if they made system wrong or misuse the system then issue is not a 'system' but issue is our 'selection'. That's reason we should not blame for system.
Many times it has been seen somewhere that system is designed well but we user either fail to take advantage of that or we pervert that system. An important thing should be kept in our mind is that many times politics starts from ours.
|Swapnil said: (Dec 17, 2015)|
Is our political system is reason for our backwardness?
I think no, how system could be cause? Our system is democratic, we have constitution in which everything is clearly mention for efficient and smooth working of our democratic system and we also have freedom for amendment it means fault is not in political system but faults are in peoples who are part of political system and who runs this system.
If we think that democratic systems faulty then, is we need autocratic system? answer is no. So it's better to blame people rather than system and we all are part of this democracy, to make run our democratic system efficiently is our duty, to follow our laws is our duty, voting is our duty and to select right candidate is our responsibility, so why to blame system ? just take your responsibilities for India as a good civilian and I'm confidant that we will be superpower.
Is our Political System Reason for our Backwardness?
