Loyalty or vested interest?
About 15 to 20% people of this country actively participate in politics. Except for some minorities, most of them from top leadership to grassroots level activists involve themselves in politics for their own vested interest. Eighty percent people of this country were being exploited under the pre- 1/11 corrupt political system. After 1/11 a new era of hope has ushered in. But this new situation has brought misery for most of the political activists. Sensing their political demise, they are desperately trying to save their supreme leaders, most of who are corrupt, so that they can preserve their old corrupt political system. For this reason they are showing blind loyalty and support to their supreme leaders. Nation's interests come last to these political activists. But they should by now realise that their days of exploiting this nation has come to an end under a sham democracy. No matter how hard they try they cannot turn back the clock before 1/11 and deceive this nation any more.
The achievements of the post 1/11 caretaker government are unprecedented. These are, creating an independent anti corruption commission, independent election commission, independent public service commission and separation of judiciary. Under the pre 1/11 corrupt system; any elected government could not have done it in the next 25 years. This government is continuously addressing flaws in our administrative and legal system and trying to implement a better system. Once the flaws in the systems are cleared, corruption will gradually come to an end and economic progress will be ensured. The only failure of this government is in controlling price hike. This is partly due to the government's lack of understanding of corrupt practices of business people involved in importing essential commodities in connivance with customs and port authorities. It is also due to increase in prices of essential commodities in the international market. The government realising its mistake is now tackling the problem in a proper manner so that the supply level of essential commodities is not affected seriously.
I would like to request the people to be patient and not to lose faith in this government. Your temporary sufferings will bring long-term prosperity for our nation. Never listen to the corrupt politicians who are desperately trying to preserve their old ways.
