Are we getting fit for dictatorship?
Looking at the past few events in India, it is evident that the country is slowly but surely moving away from democracy, into the realms of dictatorship. Democracy is an ideology where the government works hard for the benefit of the people. This is clearly not evident in India.
Democracy is not just limited to elections. It is about understanding the concerns of the public, and meeting their needs. Sadly, in India, a few individuals in top positions have power and they make all the decisions pertaining to the country for their selfish needs. If only the people in power benefit from a government and its laws, it is clearly a dictatorship.
In a dictatorship, people have no say in how a government or a country functions. This is exactly what we are experiencing in India. Most of the energy of the politicians in India is spent on two things – how to make money and how to get more votes.
Corruption is the reason behind these two desires and it has been slowly eating away political and bureaucratic machinery over the past few decades. Last year in December, when a girl was raped in New Delhi, the government did not take proper action against the perpetrators until the public protested vehemently for stricter laws. In fact, when the public took to the streets to express their anger at the government and grief for the victim, the police used force to stop such movements.
It is sad that when the police and legal authorities are needed to curb violence in the city, they are never available. However, when it comes to protecting the “corrupt” leaders of the country, policemen show up outside the government buildings to shoo away the public.
Sadly, even after the Delhi rape case, the number of rape cases in the country has not dwindled. In fact, recently, a Swiss woman was raped in Madhya Pradesh. The government is not a well-wisher of the public. People don’t have the freedom to express their views and there is no protection for women.
The economic policies undertaken by the government do not seem to help the public. In fact, the infrastructure development projects set forth through the Union Budget will only put more pressure on the working population because the government will be forced to raise taxes to fund these projects.
Although on the surface, India is a democratic nation, people within the country are aware of the deep rooted dictatorship system. After every election, a new dictator is born to fill his pockets at the expense of the country’s welfare. We have long been a country led by dictators; soon, the world will come to know of it too.
