It is highly disgusting that our leaders are indulged in getting the ministerial berths. Many have stopped seeing the Kannada news channels nowadays. We should be ashamed of choosing the leaders who have been fighting. Coalition government spent a few months fighting among themselves. They couldn't satisfy the hungry vultures. The government fell. Now the government is formed, the vultures have started craving for prey. Really the people of Karnataka are suffering.
'A' may get this portfolio, 'B' may get home, 'C' may be given forest,'D' may be quenched with the chairmanship of a board. 'EFGH' may travel to Goa resort. Karnataka people are fed up. Fights of these vultures is nauseating, disgusting and pathetic. They are least bothered about the welfare of the state and its people.
A good political leader is someone who will be honest and responsible for his own actions and decisions and who is willing to admit when they have made a mistake. They will focus their energies and time on representing the people rather than spending all the time “covering their backs” and criticizing others.
Our present leaders should follow the footsteps of Shastri, Govindegowda, Kadidal Manjappa and others. They must remember always not to betray those who elected them.
Our state is full of aspiring political leaders but sadly, a very few live up to the leadership ideals. In fact, many political leaders seem to severely lack some of the most important leadership qualities, such as integrity and accountability. It is no coincidence that for many people, the word “politician” has such negative connotations! However, history – and present day – show us that there are still a few who come close to the leadership ideals and who are good examples of an effective political leader.
Political leaders are vitally important – through the authority of government, they assess the distribution of power and resources, build relationships with other stakeholders and make decisions that can have great impact on the well-being of the state and its people.
Leadership in the political framework requires a focus on the long-term good of the state. It is sad that our leaders are fighting for short term political gains. Good political leadership requires a combination of charisma and integrity, as well as the ability to assess a situation and make a decision based on what would be the best for the greatest number of people. Most of all, leadership in a political framework requires ‘statesmanship’ – as opposed to just being a ‘politician’ – this means having the integrity and willingness to stand up for what is right, even if it means resigning a position in government or losing an election.
Despite the vast resources of men and material that the state has, the poor man has not been provided with the essentials of life such as two good meals, a reasonable shelter to live and a few amenities.
The voters of Karnataka have become puppets in their hands. People of Karnataka have to blame themselves for electing such Ravens, vultures, hawk roosting and hungry lions.
Sadly, The state has become a feeding ground for hungry vultures. We may need more revolutionary changes before we can claim to have a real and effective democracy.
