We deserve the leaders we get

When people like Shahbuddin, Mukhtar Ansari, Pappu Yadav and JPN Yadav can become MPs and MLAs, why can't they be ministers? Actually, constitutionally they have right to become a minister after winning an election. So, we can?t escape from our responsibility by just being critical. It is also true that most of us do not vote. If we can?t vote then morally we have no right to blame others? These people are in because we let them in.

When people like Shahbuddin, Mukhtar Ansari, Pappu Yadav and JPN Yadav can become MPs and MLAs, why can't they be ministers? Actually, constitutionally they have right to become a minister after winning an election. So, we can’t escape from our responsibility by just being critical.

It is also true that most of us do not vote. If we can’t vote then morally we have no right to blame others? These people are in because we let them in. Perhaps it has become our habit to criticise every wrong and ignore every “right”. These are the by-products of our irresponsible and careless attitude.
