“Milk and Honey” is what politicians promise people before coming to power...

Every political party says if its come to power it will make the poor people to drink milk and honey. When its come to power it will show as if its going to do remarkable things to the indian people.When it completes 3rd year the common man realises the prices of essetial commodities has gone up beyond his reach ,school fees up, up , bus fare increased double roads with poth holes unatteded , poor transport service but ruling party hold functions to celebrate their achievements . In the mean time the people who suffer silently are getting ready to replace the ruling party in the coming election. I think this is the only advantage the indians enjoy the freedom of punishing the crowd on the sly using power of votes...This is possible because of our democracy.Am i right???

Every political party(ies)are the same all over the world.The best think which i think the electorate can do is to team up together and vote out any political party that is found wanting in the fullfilment of its electoral manifesto.When the teaming electorate eventually succeed in doing this,it will serve as a detriment to others who may want to ride on the electorate to desist from doing so in subsequent government.

Hi, Hope all this is from the support of people the citizens who vote for them. I would never vote if I feel that candidate is not capable. Hence most elections I would ignore to vote and those people I voted mostly do not win as they are mostly in right path given a trustworthy agenda that is not pleased by all voters. They had projected in agenda that they can do this much and no bluffing. Hence I hope these people will pour milk and honey until the voters go on drinking it. Stop drinking that poisons. I wish those British rulers were far better than those corrupted politicians and judiciary of present.

its all over same everywhere. All political leaders are same everywhere. They promises so many things before election to lure people. Once they come in [power they forget everything and just think what they can make themselves by whatever means. For this reason I hate politics and all.

Well Dear, its valid not only in india but every country is this part of world, Pakistan, Bangla desh, Nepal, srilanka etc. They are just slogand to get the votes of INNOCENT crowd, they know how to tempt inoccent crowd, how to have them dream about sweet future and how to get vote, At the end, poor only suffer and politician drink milk and honey, atleast they are right as they are represnting nation so if tyhey are drinking it so nation is also. And what do u mean power of vote??? if few parties are taking part in election and only 40% of total votes are being casted, will those election represent choice of 100% nation? sand do u have more choice to elect person of ur choice or only few psaties ruling on their turn?? think about it

hello, subathra! in my opinion politics is the last resort of the greatest scoundrels.how can you expect good from them.in india ,according to me you can not get a single politician.most of them are criminals and it is pity that the people are choosing.when you are choosing a criminal to be your leader you are also a criminal.what do you say?they promise you to bring the moon to earth but what happens in course of time you are experiencing.what more can i say?the democracy in india has become the mockery in the hands of the politicians.you should not expect anything more from them.in the next election? the same thing will happen.it is not only in india but you will find every where in the world.democracy born in great britain, developed in america, destroyed in india.thank you for binging the politicians to My Lot for discussion.keep on.

Actually what you are saying it right.But seldom it has any effect on the government.Common man faces the same set of problems over & over the years irresepective of which government is there.But democracy is definitely better considering other forms of government like military.See what is happening in Pakistan.
