|An extra-constitutional centre of power exists that is more powerful than the PM. Such diarchy of power renders confused and self-contradictory governance.
Unless power is accompanied by accountability the democratic process does not work.

|The same system with the same people and drawbacks is being effectively used in Bihar and Gujarat. Therefore, you either wallow in self pity and claim that the systems and methods are alien... or you use them and modify them to suit you and create a system as you progress.
In management jargon, a really busy office implies commerce and profit, which gives you very little time to organize and streamline processes and systems. On the other hand, by the time you have systems in place the commerce is already slowing down.
India is swamped with commerce: only people like E. Sreedharan can manage it and visualize improvements in advance.
20% of the staff (including bureaucrats and politicians) will do 80% of the work.
20% of the staff will take 80% of the decisions.
Also, 20% of the staff will cause 80% of the problems.
People like Narendra Modi, Nitish Kumar, E. Sreedharan, Arun Shourie etc GET THE JOB DONE. The rest wallow.
|In continuation of my previous comment let me quote the relevant portion of the essay The story of the Raiyat - 'First let the throne be in place, the crown be made, the scepter be brought in and Manchester be pauperized - only then we shall find the time to attend to the problems of the raiyats. In other words, politics will come first and the people of the country would come later. This is the reason why, like a tailor making a dress, we are busy fashioning the form of our polity. It is very easy because we do not need any living creature to take the measurements. What we have to do is only to send to the tailor a ready made sample borrowed from abroad where the people of those countries made their dress after a lot of experiments keeping in view their physique and their climate. We know the name of the dress - it has been crammed right from the pages of learned treatises - because in our factories the name of the product comes long before it is actually produced. They are democracy, parliament, the constitutions of Canada, Australia, South Africa etc, all of which we can imagine with our eyes closed - because we do not have to take the trouble to take measurements from a living human being.'
|We imported democracy, it did not develop historically or evolve naturally in our society. There is no point in blaming these politicians - the Indians themselves are to blame. Being ruled by autocratic rulers for centuries we have become accustomed to be ruled - we are completely incapable of ruling ourselves. In these 60-odd years after independence we have not been able to ensure development of healthy democratic institutions. Who but Nehru himself set up this dynasty? Please read Rabindranath's essay - the Story of the Raiyat (Rayater katha) in my translation published in boloji long ago.
|In his "interview", Madmohan came across as pathetic, old and helpless....which is actually the case.
Subramaniam Swami's earlier letters to the President in 2004 have established that Sonia cannot become the PM because she has not relinquished her Italian citizenship. Her "stepping down" was because of this pressure.
Further, D.Swami's letters in public have established that the CWG and spectrum monies have been paid to Rahul and Sonia's sisters, respectively.
That means that aside from the power centre, the real corruption centre is also this wretched Italian import.
The huge funds entering India without respite for Xtian/ conversion activities, also the increasing clout and emboldened posturing and clout of the Xtists is directly due to Sonia's influence.
If anything, this criminal party will cling to power and fight tooth and nail to stay put.
If ,after all the public information, the criminal Kkkangress cannot be pulled down, Indian democracy and the role of the opposition is in severe doubt.
