What happened in the Legislative Assembly on 3rd October, 2011 between the one who is supposed to maintain the decorum of the House and conduct normal proceedings and a senior member of the Legislative Assembly who also happens to be a religious leader is shameful and regretful. A live telecast exposed it all.
The mysterious death of an NC activist Sayed Muhammad Yousuf is a sad news for all of us. The cause of his death needs to be investigated thoroughly by the concerned police and judicial courts. Why a case like this was handled by legislators signifies something suspicious. They have a lust for power and therefore they are uncompromising and short tempered on occasions. The opposition is demanding a probe of Mr. Sayed’s death and the ruling party is also demanding a probe of Mr. Ghulam Nabi Lone’s assassination. Obviously it a trump card with both of them to overpower each other. The people of the State cannot be spectators to the happenings in the power corridors. The sufferings of the people are mounting by the in-fights of politicians, legislators and their associates. The dispensation of good governance is rendered impossible at the hands of the vested interests whether it is NC, Congress or PDP and others all seem to be sailing in the same boat. Their lust for power has hampered the overall progress of the State and the people are helpless under the present deteriorating political scenario of the State.
That is how politicians befool people who actually elect them. They win their position all because of people's support, but when they are in, they bring shame to public. How shall such problems help the people to participate in elections for choosing a suitable candidate – a true representative, a public servant who uses unparliamentary language in Assembly.
This is a very grave issue and must be seen with an equal seriousness. If we elect such people as our representatives, we are sowing the seeds of our own destruction.
