No ethics in politics

Information & Public Relations Department of Uttar Pradesh Government has inserted a full page advertisement in many newspapers on 74th birthday (15th March 2008) of Shri Kanshi Ram. While all the people, including me, appreciate the contribution of Shri Kanshi Ram to dalit cause, UP Govt spending public money in inserting ads in newspapers is not right. Km. Mayawati, Chief Minister, Uttar Pradesh has misused her position in this regard. Nobody will have any cause to complain if she had felt herself obliged to Shri Kanshi Ram and wanted to celebrate his birthday, but she was also obliged to spend money on these ads from her party funds, which, as per her stand, are her personal funds. Shri Kanshi Ram was the leader of a political party and not the UP Govt. Ethically, his party and followers, including Km. Mayawati, should have spent their personal money on celebrations on the birthday of their respected leader. But who bothers about ethics in politics these days? The more unethical a person is the more strong a political leader he or she is.

    For the politicians while in power, all the public money is their personal money.

    Has any political leader spent a single pie from their or their parties pocket when they can spend the comman man’s money.If they had such a thought our country would not be in such a state .If the money spent on the advetisements had been spent on charity ….we have also to think if the money was really given to the newspapers or the govenment will reciprocate with favours to teh party

    It is nothing but looting common man’s money but these looters are addressed as Honourable.

    Some of them even claim that their disproportionate wealth has been gifted to them by their followers, and for political survival the govt accepts this claim.
