Hello, all of you.

My name is Ratan Gadhwal.

First of all, I would like to pay attention on the topic politics.

Politics is a very dirty game in India. Politics is made only for corruption. We can say corruption is a part of politics.

When a person wants to become a political leader he/she begs votes to people & when getting the position they do nothing for same people & forget about the people who voted them to getting that job. They only make money for our future.

The main reason of corruption in politics is uneducated politicians. All gov. Workers are dependent on bribe & without a bribe, they don't take any decision.

The public knows very well about corrupt politicians but they don't take any steps to remove corruption from politics. So it is necessary to take correct steps towards corrupted politicians.

Thank to all of you.

There are so many factors which play roles in the criminalization of politics.

Blaming voters for the same will only make situations of our country politics worse.

Some of these factors which I think have a big role in the criminalization of politics.

1. Poverty: it's a bitter truth but we all know that almost 60% of India population comes under the poverty line.

Just suppose that and put ourselves in those people conditions who even isn't able to meet their daily need.

Just think you are only a member of the family and your children have not food to eat even you are so hungry and all of sudden someone comes and offers you money and delicious food.

What will you/we do? We will also do the same as most of our poor people do.

It's very easy to sit on the chair and put our judgement about voters.

But if we look the matter closely we will find that it's not voters fault.

2. There are so many political parties which use their goons to threat voters. A good example is West Bengal. If any of voters deny what they are told to. Goons just beat them and some times also kill them. Election Commission of India knows that who is criminal and who is not.
But even though allow criminal people to stand in politics.

3. Even Political parties know about the criminal background of their candidate's but just give tickets and support criminal people to be in politics.

In my opinion, in a country like India Voters have the least right and play a very small role in the criminalization of politics.

Yes, I think that we are responsible for this type of crime because if we don't cast our vote in the right direction than how we expect the development of our country. Our executive officer also responsible for such type of heinous crime because of the take bribe from the politician. And many criminals record against the politician are pending and our judiciary they can't solve the pending cases.

Yeah, I agree that voters are responsible for criminalization of politics as it depends on the voter to cast their vote in the right direction. If the voter caste their vote according to the party which can perform well than the winning party will be leading towards growing this country. But some voters take bribes from the politician and caste their vote in the wrong direction due to which that one vote gets wasted. In a similar manner, if more people keep doing this then the party which win won't develop our nation and we will be bitching that the government is not doing anything. So people please vote in the right direction even a single vote can change the ruling government.

Thank you.

Hi, this is Samyuktha.

In my point of view, voters mean just electing the leader by voting their votes by the common people. They are just under the leading of their caste-based leader.

Some of the voters vote to the caste leader even if they are rowdy.

Due to people unawareness among them. Some political leaders also giving the funds to the caste-based people at the time of elections.

This is most criminalization in our politics.

So, I conclude that the government should take necessary steps by avoiding the taking money and voting to their leader.

No, political party contests the elections without bribing and no voter will vote without taking if they offered money. So both voters and PP are responsible for the criminalization of politics.

Everybody needs money and no one will reject if they offered money.

The subject matter can be summed as with the remarks that politicians are refined criminals created by the voters them self as once a criminal is mandated as per provisions of the Constitution, overnight, he becomes 'Honorable' and a protected person. Minutely we can conclude that it is our ill constitution that has no mandatory provision prohibiting the person with tainted background, so it is the constitution that has criminalized the political system by placing no breaks over the criminals contesting elections. Both voters and politicians riding on the soft pages of the constitution are responsible for criminalization of our political system.

Most of the rural area people have no access to media or news so how can they judge the parties without any knowledge so there is probability that they can vote for wrong candidate. So point is our information system should be improved.

My experiences say that for all the criminalization we ourselves and voters are responsible. We must understand the value of our votes and choose those leaders who are aware of the work done by real leader of particular's country not for his own greed. We as a citizen became a responsibility to elect a good leader who should think for our country than for his own greed.

We are in flow of emotion we give our votes to those who are of our same caste or they are our neighbourhood or of same villages and town but this is not always mean that they would think for countries development. For example:- In country like INDIA, all citizens were demanding that the should be corruption less work but the people in solving their personal problem they try every means and give money as a corruption person to gov. Employees or any other so that his /her work should be completed as early as possible so it only increases the spirit of corruption not of corruption less so how a people of INDIA could demand for corruption less country if they would not give a money to gov. An employee or any other members then definitely the corruption should be less. In the same way, the voting is also affecting the politics if we elect a responsible person as any MLA/MP then he/she must think for the welfare of country.

A fair society is our need. How it can be achieved. All most people are fair and they expect fair things. I see the misleading is the foe. Eg. 2g spectrum loss statement by former C A G Mr. Vinod Rai. It is said to be a PRE-SUMED LOSS. But not a real one. But we had seen that how much venom had been injected into the society by strong media propaganda. Even the high weight from the then ruling party also contributed a share in the venomed propaganda. We saw the aftermath thing. The best another eg. Black money. All the political parties alike mourn against black money since ears back. They could not identify the rot of it or not felt to trace it. I see the politicians the social workers the lawyers and even judiciary have propagated against black money effects. The present Government decided to end the years-long mourn of society against black money and they demonetised Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes. The action has been hailed especially by the political parties irrespective of the color of their flags. The hailing against viruses propaganda giving inspiration to the Government to take stringent measures. But I think that the result of demonetization will not be a hailing one. The society is being fallen in crises. In these respect, I see a lot of miseries are being invited to the society by lack of right thinking political leaders. India needs a good political leader like Narasimha Rau, Vajpai and Manmohan Singh. These three former prime Ministers brought India into prosperity. Wait and see.
