Criminalisation of Politics

Criminalisation of Politics can not be avoided ever till the time criminals are in Politics but who  sends them , we voters. I should primarily say that we are in democracy and in democracy voters are behind every positive and negative happening because they choose their ministers to rule on behalf of them. So if there is criminal activities in politics then voters are the reason who ignited it. If they would have boycott criminals through voting then such situation would never arrive. But we can say our voters do not have vast thinking, they just think for their own or their surroundings. So we cannot totally blame voters but they are too reason for it.

criminalization of politics

As far as political parties are concern I agree that they take in confidence of voters. Hence major reason for criminalisation in politics is political parties but we cannot ignore the role of voters for boosting these parties to do so.

But if we think from a voter’s perspective we have two points to think about:

Till the time we are human we will remain crimnal and so criminalization in politics will prevail.
1. Most of the rural area people have no access to media or news so how can they judge the parties without any knowledge so there is probability that they can vote for wrong candidate. So point is our information system should be improved.

2. And also when come to forming government party need majority of seats else you need to make mix government then those state parties will dominate the government in to their favour by giving the treat to withdraw their support from the party.

This leads to a corrupted system.

But again voters are also responsible for all the crime. They choose their party on the basis of religion, cast etc every time when election is held without seeing the present situation. If they vote strictly and oppose the corrupt party then crime etc can be eradicated. Voter is a god for all political parties. Political parties are spreading like a epidemic in all villages, districts, state and metropolitan area. In 90% case it is seen that political parties are responsible for the criminalization of politics. In 10% cases all voters who cannot understand which parties give us all facilities which they want.

They only vote for that party who give some money and other items at the time of election and they also campaign for some parties day to night without thinking that my child perform better in his house or not.

But we should not blame voters completely for all the crime. As most of the people in India are living in villages and they are very innocent and don’t have great knowledge regarding power of their vote. As a result some ministers take people in confidence by illegal means(e.g. distributing money) and poor voters get trapped and left to suffer for the next 5 years.

And the politicians also promise too much before the elections, when time comes to put the words into action, they hardly remember anything.

    When we talk about india we don’t mean the 30% city folks but the rest 70% of the villagers as well. Though both of them are responsible for criminalization in politics but voters are far more responsible. Today literacy rate of india is 74.04% and still we choose a wrong government. Even if people know the background of the polling candidates they never tend to properly judge them or they “sell” their votes just for a few rupee notes. They don’t understand that they themselves are making their future dark as the greedy today will be there leader tomorrow. Talking about rural india they atleast have the means of radio communication and newspapers or even if not this they attend campaigns still they choose wrong people and thus politicians take advantage of this. However you try to preach about but it will still not make anyone understand the importance of vote unless they feel to do so! Like we don’t need education to understand rape,extortion,character and murder we don’t really need education to understand the need to vote for right people. Its a self realization and obligation of an individual towards their country and for their better future as well.

    Its the voters who choose their representatives & flaw lies in them!

  3. sakshi chaudhary says:

    i thinks both political companies and voters both are equally responsible for if political parties does proper evaluation of the candidate to whom party has given the tickets than no such condition occur in which one has to make choice in between them….

  4. Saurabh Singh says:

    This mistake is from Voter’s side because most of us don’t know the power in our hand to vote and to choose right people to drive whole system in a very efficient manner..If we don’t give chance to whom who deserve for this then how one can show him…so my request is to all to choose always right people..

  5. Ankita Prajapati says:

    According to my view voters are responsible for all the crime .. They choose their party on the basis of religion, cast etc every time when election is held with out seeing the present situation.. If they vote strictly and oppose the crupt party then crime .. etc can be eradicated.

  6. Chitranshi Dhaneshwar says:

    We cannot clap with one hand.Similarly, voters and political parties go hand in hand and leads to corruption.

  7. niraj mishra says:

    I think both are equally responsible for it, as voter should vote only the deserving person, usually they vote because they comes in their relation or due to any other reason but they do not vote to the deserving person who is responsible, young and educated person and can manage the society better. As well as politicians are also responsible because sometimes they misuses their power and resulting criminalization.

  8. Jaykaran Singh says:

    what u defined about our democracy is really true one
    ofcourse here is democracy system. we are in democracy and in democracy voters are behind every positive and negative happening because they choose their ministers to rule on behalf of them
    but in real sense its very though to say who is main accused or have more weightage in creation of crimes.
    at first when anyone stand for election he shows real chracter… wht i am. after wining of election he totally change.. his all promise looks like it was fun.
    so i blame people who chose….
    we should carefuully chose our leaders.
    we should keep some points before them . he should be educated person .he should not have any criminal records.
    these type of leaders we have to totally ignore.
    then after we can find good leaders who deserve to lead our country.

  9. Dipak Sen says:

    Yes , Voters or political parties are responsible for criminalization in polities. That means we are choose any political leader through voteing system. We are not no that leader is good or bad. so some bad political leader are not good and they are bad work that mean criminalization.

  10. Soumyadip Das says:

    political parties are responsible for criminalization in politics.the ruler party always trying to retain their power.To do that they done some criminal offence.But only because of their power the get rid of punishment and they continue to do that.On the other hand the parties who does not have much power they also do some criminal activities to get the,for common people it is not possible to identify who will do the work properly to keep the promises…
    so it is a fault of political parties…

  11. Avinash Kumar says:

    As far as Politics is concerned,we live in a democratic country and democracy as said is For the people,By the people and Of the people.So,every better and bad is due to the voters. But politics has gone such a corrupted that politicians take voters forcefully in their confidence.We the voters in some areas are still forcefully made to vote for some party,if we oppose it,we are paid for it.So,altogether maximum of criminalization exists due to the politicians. Because they have always encouraged it,they have always helped,if someone comes forward is being paid for it.So,all the voters must come up to select a good government to show some democracy.In my view the democracy is losing its value day to day is the greatest reason for criminalization.

  12. Chandan Jha says:

    increasing population is off corse an increase in problem for a group in better serving so we should keep an eye after it although goverment is doing it but main responsiblity lies in ourselves to be more and more devloping we should take care of our numbers so that we can noursh ourselves with the resources we have i want to say about better nourshment which we will get after having minimum in numbers to make a batter nation

  13. Soumyadip Das says:

    Political parties are responsible for the criminalization in politics . We,the voters select a party thinking that the party will fulfill our requirement.Before election the political parties makes us various promises but after the election they forget us.To retain their power in the area some times they done some criminal offence.With the help of their power the get rid of punishment.

  14. Deeptarka Bhadra says:

    Yes, it is true that voters or political parties are much responsible for criminal cases in politics. Naturally they are benefited by those criminal cases. Because if any sort of criminal cases occurs against the political party, then naturally that political party is highlighted in media, those politicians in the party get public support and wins. But the crime generally hampers the society as well as the country, the people who does this crimes finally survive. And this is continuing from early days, which we, the common people should restrict.

  15. NILAY MAZUMDER says:

    It is well known that all parties take the help of criminal elements to dominate the election scene in India. But this process is influencing the mind and the will of the people both to gain the majority to rule the country according to their will. The system of democracy is now changing into the dictatorship of some. Because the democracy of India are now in hands of the criminal who are not capable any way to hold the post if legislature.
    he political parties and independent candidates have astronomical expenditure for vote buying and other illegitimate purposes through these criminals or so called goondas. A politician’s link with them constituency provides a congenial climate to political crime. Those who do not know why they ought to vote comprise the majority of voters of this country. Therefore majority of the voters are manoeuvrable, purchasable. Most of them are individually timid and collectively coward. To gain their support is easier for the unscrupulous than the conscientious.
    For the past several general elections there has existed a gulf between the Election Commission and the voter. Common people hardly come to know the rules made by the commission. Bridging this gap is essential not only for rooting out undesirable elements from politics but also for the survival of our democratic polity. This is an incremental process, the rate of success of which is directly proportional to the increase in literacy rate in India. The electorate have made certain wrong choices in the past, but in the future national interest should guide them in making intelligent choices.
    So as to say about the ystem the system can not run like this way!!!!!!! so from my side they manipulates the horror of the society!!!

  16. karna saradar says:

    voters or political is now increasing incriminalization because there have increasing competition in polytics mostly in rural area , there people are more poor in iconomically so they can fight a with a political partry against other polytical party for getting money , so there are increasing marder , for this reason there is increasing criminalization with politics.

  17. Pallavi sinha says:

    At first site we can say this is a total fault of voters becoz we r those who choose them to serve us because of our democratic power.

  19. pragya saxena says:

    to some extent the political parties contribute to the criminalization…as they make wrong use of their powers in order to prove them superiors they become over esteemed and do commit crimes…

  20. BHarti PaNdey says:

    This is not correct for me as Democracy may be considered by Voters But every voters votes considering various aspects today And they consider each scenario But u can regard it as a pity situation of the Voter that Today Voter has limited choices as not one of the Politician today is free of any Criminal Charges leaving Exceptions.Therefore the need of Boycott option in Ballot System is being considered today…..

  21. Subhayan Das says:

    The marketization of everything has lend its long flowing roots in an out of the human race and its various subsidiaries.One example of such a tributary effect is the marketisation of politics .The power of marketisation is so huge that no government can even imagine to hold a match stick against it .And why should they be because the focus of human race has shifted from HUMANITY TO ”click here for instant money making ” doesnt that sounds interesting to you even .The era has been such that no bonds are holding back its flow as people are learnt to follow each other and unconcious control of the govt, is done by the govt. through the fake masks of “SOCIALIZATION” …….MARKETISATION OF POLITICS AND ITS EFFECT ON THE HUMAN DECISION MAKING HAS LEAD TO CRIMINALISATION IS POLITICS !!!!!
