Foolish Political Petitions Damaging Our Credibility
There are perhaps over 1000 Small Political Parties operating in India but due to lack of leadership and competent professional advice causes more harm to polity of India than any good. We failed to achieve anything. What we have got is how much is the wealth generated by a candidate- we don't know what the candidate has done that qualifies him to represent people in parliament or state assembly.
Supreme Court order of 2002 has not made Indian government more democratic than before election expenses have shot up many fold.
It most scandalous in a democracy – a mediocre and to me idiot appears on television and every website for two years seeking votes even before candidates are selected or nominated.
There is no comparison of performance of the government at centre and states.
"PIL in SC over Manifesto Promises"
It is most stupid of the petitioner to compel political parties to implement poll promises for several reasons.
1. Mostly political parties make "Technically Unsound" and "Economically Unviable" promises. River Linking or Sethu Samudram for example. In all three manifestos BJP promised to build Sethu Samudram project but in between launched a campaign to stop any excavation of the Adams Bridge they call Ram Setu.
2. Menifestos- A Corrupt Practice; Manifestos are basically corrupt practices all promises are frauds on people basically. It the Parliament or Assemblies who approve projects and plans based on technical or social recommendations.
Main cause of poor performance and corrupt practices of out political parties is the "Undemocratic Constitution" of our political parties. Peoples Representation Act provides for "Democratic, Secular, Socialist and Allegiance to Constitution of India".
A. Defeat Corrupt & Incompetent Candidates.
a.) PIL should first enforce "Democratic Constitution" of the political parties with open membership.
b.) PIL should seek democratic elections on annual basis for political parties under observation of Election Commission supervision.
c.) PIL should insist full time 250 days annual functioning of Parliament and Assemblies.
d.) PIL should insist on 75% attendance or 50% of working time in parliament.
e.) PIL should insist on Rajya Sabha seats for highly qualified professionals who are not full time politicians and bar a Lok Sabha/ State Assembly loser to enter Rajya Sabha for 6 years.
B. Provide Political Alternative
I have already provided Constitution of Democratic Party of India which is superior to Democratic Party of USA and more stable than Peoples Party of China.
C. Demonstrate Superior Capability
It is most important for SPP to demonstrate they have superior skills and are capable of replacing established parties.
