Comments on: India’s “armchair advisers” join Facebook Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 By: crusadersbuckup Tue, 22 Mar 2011 07:49:50 +0000 The right to ELECT has handicapped us.
We need right to EVICT also. We are forced to open an inlet with no emergency outlet. Time to call fire brigade.
If we had it we could have curbed scandals like the commonwealth, adarsh housing, bellary mines and 2G much earlier than the government took time.
Meanwhile, the delay made us poorer. Thus hampering the next five year plan. ELECT+EVICT=DEMOCRACY. Now, we have to spend more to investigate, document and then try scamsters. and then emerge from such setbacks involving valuable time.
