    India even today is facing a lot of problems. The UPA Government has turned a blind eye in several issues like rise in food price, Agriculture is being sidelined and farmers are committing suicides unable to repay loans, terrorists have found refuge in the country’s border, Bangladesh, Pakistan and china are trying to capture border areas, huge scams have swindled crores of rupees, government policies and schemes is posing hardship to traders, middle and lower class sections of the society and corruptions. As inflation rises, bribes too are rising for varied public services. The farmers are dependent on rain for cultivation. While failure of monsoon bothers the farmer on one hand. The excessive rains cause floods, havoc damaging the crops, the life of the farmers with such uncertain climatic conditions. Farmers are not getting the right price for their produce. Most of the middlemen make money. Even after a good crop without proper market support and transportation facilities, around 40% of the crops are getting spoiled. Some of the lands are unfit for farming. The parties are spending crores of rupees for campaigning in the states. All these campaign gimmicks and expenditure to woo voters. But if these expenditures are used for developmental works it would be more good. But these are not happened. Can the people think that the parties who are spending so much for branding themselves provide an good and prominence towards the development of this society. The expensive branding of these leaders will not only fuel inflation after they come to the power, they will recover money from us. The bills like RTI and the Lokpal are the result of peoples movement and agitations and no party could take the credit as these bills had not been brought for the last 7 years. The UPA government had failed to address the people’s problems from the last 9 years in power at central. When UPA government adopted the method of a subsidized LPG cylinders a year per house, the people of the country raised the voice against this implementation by agitations. But in vain. The Ministry had insisted an linking Aadhar to bank accounts. Now the ministry says that Aadhar cards are not necessary to get subsidized LPG. For the same reason, the Supreme Court had opposed making card being made mandatory for people to avail social benefits. In case it is made mandatory, there is a danger of illegal migrants taking advantage of Aadhar card as a valid identity for their citizenship than the original citizens of this country. Now just a few months before the elections arriving the UPA government has suddenly realized that the people need 12 LPG cylinders a year to cook and suggested the quota to increase from 9 to 12, throwing to the wind all the meticulous arguments putting forward by various expert committees and ministries over the year. And as like that of Telangana bill in Andhrapradesh has become big embarrassment for the government and the people. Most of the schemes implemented by the government are not reaching to the people and it has been benefitting for the third persons. This is a game plan by the parties and the knowledgeable among the politicians who can see the connection would still go for the short termism as that fetches votes in elections. Every citizens has right to vote in our democracy. The people should not vote for a penny or for something, but to vote for a good and right person for a vision of economic prosperity and equity.
