In India, only hard bargain pays, nothing else. Our elections are based purely on caste and religious identities, nothing else.
e.g. Regional leadership often colludes with the Shiv Sena and is under the awe of Mr.Bal Thackeray. Even Mr.Sharad Pawar, Mr.Bhujbal and other Congress leaders meet him, touch his feet and have dinner with him.

Which honest politician has lost an election? Did Lal Bahadur Shastri ever lose an election? Did Ram Manohar Lohia ever lose an election? Yes it is true that alongwith the honest politician the corrupt also get elected.

Political election based on adult franchise does not take into account the back ground of people to differentiate bet' what is good for the country and what's bad. Politicians manipulate vote accumulation using methods not approved by democratic principle or social justice. The honest suffers.

That is one of the main problem.Most of the people say something and do something else.Every one blames corrupt but when he/she goes for casting a vote, acts differently.If the difference between telling and doing is narrowed down,lot many problems will get solved.

Yes thats true.but honesty is different from efficiency.politicians need to have all the qualities,knowledge and should know all the positives and possibilities of negatives in their field to consider the priorities and give equal importance to everyone..they should be honest in maintaining his/her words.and should be courageous to handle issues,bold and impartial while taking decisions and should be aware of the political tactics in a positive way to present a corruption free government.

The honest do not have unaccounted money and muscle power.
Remember, Arun Bhatia, the honest IAS officer from Pune.
He was shuttled around every year in a new posting for more than 14 years.
He stood for elections and I think forfeited his deposit.
