Apart from the chaos on the roads and the extreme inconvenience that is caused to common people like you and me, political parties have this disgusting habit of defacing the entire city prior to a rally. Sample these walls in my area:
These walls will stay like this for months. Nobody will clear them. This morning as I drove down to Poorna Tiffins for my weekly rendezvous with Idlis I was dismayed at the amount of disfiguration the city had gone through due to one rally. Ugly posters all over. Party flags strewn all over the roads.
I read in the newspaper yesterday about a question put to the Civic Administration, the GHMC about this very issue. The Commisioner replied that they would investigate who was responsible for this and would take action against the individuals.
Who is responsible for this? Isn't it obvious? Does one need an investigation to figure out who disfigured the city during a Congress rally? And they will take action against the people who were responsible? Is the commisioner going to pull up the Chief Minister for this?
Again, don't take this as Congress bashing. The rest of the parties are equally guilty. The TDP, the BJP, every single party.
The political class of this country has a lot of answering to do. The trouble is, who is going to ask the questions?
