BESIDES BOUQUETS POLITICIANS SHOULD BE READY FOR BRICKBATS TOO

Regardless of which political party is in Power, we should commend the good things done by the government but never ever hesitate to severely rap them for their acts of omission and commission. There should be no room for political sycophancy as we need to fearlessly and bluntly point out and highlight any and every illegality committed by those in power and authority.

We should never be spineless as our inaction in speaking out is great disservice to the society whose well-being should always be our concern. 

An effective and very vigilant Opposition is necessary to provide checks and balances in the working of any government. A very strong opposition is fundamental for the success of any democracy as no Opposition or a decimated one is precarious.

Without an effective Opposition the government of the day becomes dictatorial, arrogant and unaccountable while functioning in rank violation of law and the fundamental constitutional principles. Those we elected should serve us with dedication and humbleness, never ever becoming power intoxicated.

Let us always be reminded that “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” and that “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”.
