Political GimmicksI was really wondered watching the set of events happening in the Political Arena of Kerala when they are aproaching the Elections for the 13th Legislative Assembly.Politicians are running here and there for gaining a seat for contesting.And those who havent got seat or who were discarded by their parties are trying to come out of the party and trying to join the Opposition just for the sake of grabbing a seat. in this process they are setting aside all the virtues a politician or a social worker should posess.
This is not a one off issue. Just in the last couple of days, we have seen a lot of such gimmicks happening. To name a few, not to make a personal allegation , but to just substantiate the things, Stephen George of KC-M, who was denied a seat by his party in his home constituency has come out and joined the Opposition and contesting. I was thinking , like what will these people have to tell to the general public . How they will justify their act of joining the Opposotion party just for the sake of getting a seat. Are the public so foolish to believe these politicians.
The above stated example is just one among the few. We are hearing more such incidents from all over Kerala. We had an era of politicians when they had given utter priority to the virtues they had maintained in their political life. Have to say with sadness, those are the Good Old days...All is gone....Today, do we have any such people. We might have a few, but their numbers are very much limited.
So, the youth who are coming forward to the social service arena and politics, not just for the sake of contesting in elections and gaining name, they should try to have a clean image and should work for the upliftment of the society.
