Changing values and our political leaders – this is the subject of today’s post. It is an important issue in modern Indian political scenarios.

India had given birth to so many eminent intellectuals, leaders, scientists, artists and so on. They lived lives with values and ethics.

But time has been changed. Values are changing. With the changing values, and our political leaders are not going on in straightway.

In changing values, our political leaders are not walking on the fairway. They are not following the proper decorums of both houses.

But our great men always maintained values and ethics. To them, values were a priority. Never they derailed from it.

From Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Vidyasagar to Swami Vivekananda, Rabindranath Tagore to Rishi Aurobindo, Netaji Subhash and Mahatma Gandhi to Ballavbhai Patel, Ambedkar, Padmaja Naidu, Malviya – they had sacrificed their lives for the upliftment of our country.

Especially, the numerous freedom fighters like Bhagat Singh, Surya Sen, Matangini Hazra, Khudiram Bose and so many compatriots selflessly struggled for the freedom movement.

Therefore, they freed our country from the colonial rules of the British raj.

They were not like today’s leaders. They had firm values and ethics in their lives.

But there’s a drastic change in the present scenario in regards to this. Changing Values and our Political Leaders is the topic of this post. So I have been trying to discuss this here in this post.

Ultimately we have achieved freedom since 15 August of 1947. Now it’s going to complete 75 years of liberation.

From the very inception of independence, we have been divided into two separate countries – Pakistan and India. It happened due to the divide and rule conspiracy of British rulers.

Hence, we know the history behind it. We can’t only blame Britishers, our leaders were also responsible for this separation.

When two brothers become rivals of each other, their enmity never end. India and Pakistan both are the sons of the same mother.

But power, wealth distribution etc are the roots of hilarious enmity between the two countries.

Therefore, it is a long term problems of both the side. Here we can refer the Kashmir issue. But it’s not our subject of discussion in this blog.

Last few weeks our parliamentary activities are not going on peacefully due to the chaos of the opposition leaders.

Mainly some TMC leaders shouted and torn out the papers and had thrown them out to Hon’ble speaker of the house.

So the full season was suspended. Yesterday some congress MPs heckled and ill-behaved against a Lady Marshall.

Being a public – elected MP of Parliament, how can they breaking rules of the House?

If they don’t know the decorum of the parliament, they should be penalised accordingly. They should be suspended for one season.

As a common public, we never support this misconduct of the parliamentarians. They’re not above law.

These MP’s are not our representatives. As a citizen of my country we can’t bother such kind of anarchism in the parliament.

I think the Hon’ble speaker and also the Ministry of parliamentary affairs should take bold steps against this violence. It’s made by some notorious law-breakers MP’s.

We have sent them to make laws for public – betterment, but not doing so. Naturally, they’re breaking laws.

I think our Hon’ble Supreme Court is watching this matter. Already SC has taken initiatives to control this situation.

The lawmakers are our pathfinders. So MP’s must not be criminals. Therefore, they should be aloof from any criminal cases.

But it’s a matter of fact that most of the MP’s are connected with criminal cases whether they made a crime or not.

However, a portion of members of parliament is indeed corrupted. Their past and present activities are not satisfactory according to the law.

Besides, they don’t care about laws and ethics. They’re getting MP salaries and other benefits which are public money. It comes from taxes.

Actually motherland is not superior to them. They love money and power. For their own satisfaction they can sell our motherland.

Eventually, SC will take over this matter and give orders to follow the instructions to maintain the decorum of the Parliament House.

The Hon’ble court should give them punishment if any member doesn’t follow the decorum of the house seriously.

Therefore, I am looking forward to continuing the discussion about this matter. Readers who love our country can join us in discussing this issue for a better India.
