Hi I am Indian citizen. The country whose reputation greatly suppersed due to bunch of scams in previous year. Currently congress goverment is 'nurturing' to our nation. Right after India got freedom that is, since 15th of august 1947 for about 80% time India was governed by this government. Telgi scam was a popular scam in India. Abdul karim Telgi who did big corruption by selling fake stamp papers for years and earned lots of moneys. Then in previous year, lots of scams came in front of public. They include 2G scam which is considered as biggest scam taken place in India until now. A.K. Raja made corruption of about 1.76 lak carore. Thereafter common wealth scam followed by IPL scam, satyam scam came in front. I don't think congress government is doing something good for India. Afjal guru a kashmir terrorist who attacked on Indian parliament was sentensed to be hanged out in 2006, by supreme court but yet he is alive. Right now, political conditions in India are very unstable. The great social worker named Anna Hazare is trying to implement a law named as 'lokpal' which revolutionalized singapore in 1963 after its implementation. This law was passed in 1966 here in India but still it has not been implemented. Now big movements are carried out by Anna Hazare to implement this law. How can this government help for us?

Yes, there are lots of proofs came in front showing top leaders buy votes. They buy the whole crowd to promote their party. It has now been a tradition government must do some good works when elections comes nearer. Example road construction works goes at high speed at these times. I hear from many peoples that this high speed road construction is because elections are coming near. And if peoples knows this then why they vote same party? Its not the fact that our country is not having strong politetions, there are lots of strong leaders but because of peoples doesn't vote them, they don't get charge to serve for India. HAPPY MYLOTTING!!

I think our government in our place is trying to improve, the only problem is that all projects that is to be done cannot accomplished right away because of the limited budget given. So only few government projects were accomplished. I doubt most of the places in the Philippines with a high IRA or Internal Revenue Allowance (correct me if I am wrong) don't have projects to improve their places, I say most of the employees or some of the officials were making money of their own or stealing budget money for the projects.

We all know that most countries has a corrupt government and whether we like it or not we have to live with it because that's how politics system goes.The only thing we can do is make sure that the leaders that we should vote will help his people first before himself.

As always, a lot of times the government has their own agenda and the agenda is often putting themselves in a better position, while throwing the people who put them in their cushy seats underneath the bus. Now granted, I'm sure that there are some trying to make a change, but let's not delude ourselves, those people never really get any degree of success. To be a successful politician, you have to a deceitful conman to say the very least. Again only time will tell but it does seem like anyone in power, no matter what form of government it takes, really tends to feel the need to really stifle the people while putting money into their own pocket. It is just that some are rather more honest about it. Not every politician in this country or any other is like that but those who are tend to be the ones that tend to command the most influence.
