Although it has become a tradition that all the Prime Ministers of India speak from the Red Fort on the Independence Day, their speeches are nothing but cheap rhetoric aimed to delude the people – most of them are uneducated.
The truth is that today India is standing at the crossroads where the country’s 1.25 billion people are facing a grave threat from their own political rulers who have been exploiting the sentiment of people for the past about seven decades after India got independence from the Britishers in 1947.
While almost all politicians here are corrupt – many are facing serious criminal charges – they have been winning elections by dividing voters on the basis of their caste, creed, color, and religious affiliations.
Plus, there is a dangerous nexus between these shady politicians and capitalists who want to stay in power by hook or by crook. Together, they have reduced India to a level of criminalized kleptocracy, in which all the four pillars of democracy have collapsed.
The data and facts in our REAL VOTER editorial section will tell you the extent of damage that Indian politicians of all political parties have done to the country and its people. This data further shows that India continues to be an underdeveloped country.
