Modi and Corruption - Where does India stand after all these years?

It saddens me to see the sorry state of current affairs. If we don't unite, Modi can't do anything even if he tries. Just like Modi eating food will not satisfy your hunger, he going ahead and announcing schemes won't help until there is unity among persons responsible for implementation & use of those schemes.

This post is prompted by the depression arising out of transfer of DIG of Prisons to Traffic department. It shows the deep rooted corruption in every system. Why was the DIG Prisons transferred?

Because she told us about special treatment being given to Sasikala, lodged in one of Karnataka prisons.

Not only was the DIG Prisons transferred, the DG too has been sent on indefinite leave. Some 42 prisoners were also sent to other prisons so that no one can give any statement on the special treatment given to Sasikala.

The report on Sasikala was presented yesterday & within 24 hours, so much happened. It kind of sends signals of distress & despair among the masses.

We know what happened & we can't do anything. We can't pressurize the government into revoking the transfer of DIG Prisons & leave of DG. We also know that a probe panel will be set up that will run as long as the issue stays in public memory. We know the probe panel won't find anything wrong & will close the case once public anger is directed to something else.

Despite knowing everything, we can't do anything. If the DIG Prisons cannot protect herself, what powers do you & I possess.

Meanwhile, media is making money by provoking people, running the story non-stop. When Republic TV was announced, we expected a nationalist media that would work for justice. It too turned out to be like any other TV station: all noise but no results. It is just entertaining the Indian Right Wing.

Such incidents induce despair. People who have power, misuse it. Media was supposed to be a watchguard, the 4th pillar of democracy. But it works to further the dirty agendas of political parties and corporations.

Modi can't help us. We need a revolution. *We need intolerance for corrupt.*

Right now, I fail to see any road out of this misuse of power. What can we do as citizens of India? Just watch helplessly as they suck out freedom, law, order, etc. out of the country?
