Young Politicians respond to the Mumbai Tragedy- Devendra Fadnavis, 37 years, MLA,
Devendra Fadnavis, 37 years, MLA,
This is a time when both politicians and people need to introspect. God is unlikely to descend on the earth to reform this system. It is the political apathy, particularly of the elite which is also responsible for the kind of politicians that we have today. If you do not like me, please vote me out, but please participate in voting.
I also see a dis-connect between the priorities of the top leaders and the aspirations of the people. Over 60% of today’s electorate is young, unless we can find ways of connecting with youth; we will not be able to restore faith in democracy.
Media has to be proactive but not provocative! When such a negative campaign is being run against politics, we also need a parallel constructive campaign which articulates ideas for improving our democracy. I believe that it is only democracy, which has allowed people to protest from Gateway of India to India Gate. Lets us all say, that democracy is the best system and let’s work together to make it work.
