The only way out for this long standing problem is to vote the right people to power so that the politics is done the way it should be for the benefit of countrymen & not for fulfilling personal motives!!

I don't think we can do anything to stop vote bank politics due to diversity.

In my opinion such politics won't succeed longer.

What is practiced in India, in the name of democracy, is not democracy in real sense...itz pseudo democracy...bcz those who are elected in the general election are never elected by 20% of the population of the constituency....suppose a candidate gets a 15000 margin votes more than his immediate opponent...and gets 3,35,000 votes....out of a population of 18,00,000 voters....then how does that elected candidate be considered as the true representative of the constituency where as at least 50% and more have voted against him.... hence the present election system does not reflect true democracy .... ad those opportunist politicians know it very well....and some key posts they have kept reserved to be selected by the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha representatives who do not even represent 30% of their constituency......this fact is not brought to the table of discussion.....

Vote Bank politics is there in every democracy. In USA Republicans and Democrats vie for votes of immigrants and ethnic Americans by attending their religious or cultural activities. Allowing them to practice their religions and cultures at the cost of their own religious practices. Recently we have seen Hindus and Sikhs being allowed to make huge temples and Gurdwaras. Muslims allowed to make numerous Mosques, even near Ground Zero. Why?? For attracting their votes. Same is going on in UK. Immigrants are allowed in their countries and are provided all sorts of facilities like no pork in school canteens because it hurts the feelings of Muslims. Turban for Sikhs and burkhas for Muslim women are upheld by courts. Why? For appeasing them for their votes.India is not alone in the politics of appeasement.

In addition to what is said correctly by shri Rajnikant Raiyarela ji, THE RIGHT TO REJECT can solve the problem. Let them cast the votes; Or let their be all votes in favour of all, and let every Indian reject or let it go if liked. This of course needs literacy and introduction of 100 % foolproof I cards to implement the right to reject effiectively.
