Corruption, Scandals and Scams lists since 1947 (After Independence): Part I (1947 - 1999)

Image
Corruption is an issue which is constantly holding our country's development back. Transperency International which is a organization recognised internationally ranks coutries based on corruption in the country. In the year 2016, India was ranked 79th out of 168 countries. Although from 2014, the courntry has improved in ranking index from 36 - 40, still we need to go a long way and make it towards 90-100. Current index of 40 terms India as mostly corrupt country.
Constantly over a period of time we have witnessed cases of corruption by our politicians amounting to crores of rupees which should have been put into development of coutry and upliftment of poor and underpriviledged. Instead most of the money went towards the development of politicians, their family and political parties. Some got converted to foreign currencies and are lying with foreign banks. Swiss banks being the ideal choices for most of the politicians.
Since the list is so big, I'm breaking it into 3 parts.…

Political instability in India: People VS Power

India - a country, referred as one among the peaceful country in the world is going through real challenge and political instability for the past few months in many states. With series of unfortunate events and hunger to get the Supreme Power, the politicians at top and responsible positions are taking undue advantage and play with people's sentiments.

It's always believed that government is formed by the people, supporting their desired candidates for the next five years but these days the joy just remains for few months after that there are series of news which disturbs the common man and adds to his frustrations to discover himself and think why did I chose these people to form the government when politicians are power hungry and disrespect the mass who supported them.

In the past we have seen that many political leaders and their party have brought the state to a standstill. All this for what, Just to get satisfied with their ego ? What about the people who stood in queue…

AIADMK: Are you playing Musical Chair in CM office ?

On Feb 5 2017, AIADMK legislators elected their party General Secretary V.K.Sasikala (self proclaimed "Chinnamma") as leader of their legislature party paving the way for her to become Tamil Nadu's Chief Minister.

After the death of their long time party and people's favorite leader and Tamil Nadu's late Chief Minister J.Jayalilitha profoundly called as AMMA by the people as truly she was like a mother to millions of Tamil people, the party leaders elevated Sasikala as General Secretary who had never held any party position till then. Reason behind this decision is only best known to them however it's often heard in media saying she had internalized all the traits of Amma.

The latest party decision to further elevate Sasikala as Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu comes as a surprise to many as it is believed that current Chief Minister O.PaneeerSelvalvam was handling his office fairly well with Jallikattu success to his major credits and there was no need to repla…
