New day, new accusation

Newspost

February 13, 2018

In our country, many people are frustrated by democracy because they feel that political leaders are disconnected from the problems of the people. This assumption is further supplemented by the immature behaviour demonstrated by political leaders at different political gatherings. Instead of talking about how they will tackle the existing problems, leaders hurl baseless allegations at each other. The derogatory language used to tarnish the image of political rivals hints at the fact that our leaders lack the vision to lead from the front.

If politicians do not do away with these tactics, they will soon find themselves addressing empty chairs during rallies, because the people have no interest in listening to the same allegations over and over. Issues including child labour, food adulteration, gas shortage and impure drinking water need immediate attention. It is hoped that party leaders will adopt positive and constructive strategies to win the confidence of the people by discussing their future line of action with the people. With the general elections just a few months away, parties must come up with a viable and people-friendly strategy to alleviate the suffering of the common man.
