Letter to the PM!!

Recently I got an invite from Viewspaper to participate in "PMji Samjhoji! Letter-a-thon - The day India will write to its Prime Minister". Thank you Viewspaper for giving me this opportunity. Here is my letter to the PM:

Dear PM ji,

Currently our nation is facing numerous issues like corruption, price rise, poverty, unemployment, etc.  One thing that bothers common people like us is lack of strict action against corrupt ministers, government officials and bureaucrats. In recent times, a lot of scams have been exposed by Mr. Arvind Kejriwal and his team. All the scams involve high profile people associated with your government and the one answer you people always come up with is, “These allegations are completely false and baseless”. When your ministers say this line, three possibilities come to my mind:

1. The allegations are actually baseless and all the ministers of your government are too honest and loyal to be involved in such scams.
2. Your ministers are indeed involved in such scams, without your knowledge and you protect them for the sake of your party’s reputation.
3. The involvement of your ministers in such scams is not completely out of your knowledge and therefore you don’t have any option other than protecting them.

The first one is highly unlikely.  If all the ministers of your government are so honest, then I feel Mr. Kejriwal is the most foolish person on this earth. Foolish because he is unnecessarily inviting trouble for himself by getting into a kind of war with so many “honest people” who are strong enough to harm him and his associates to an unimaginable extent. We all know he was publicly threatened by one of your ministers. But as I said, it is highly unlikely so we can rule out this possibility.

So, it has to be either 2 or 3, and you can yourself decide whether it’s 2 or 3.  When we see corrupt people come out unscathed despite all their wrongdoings, we lose faith in the government. Rather than protecting such people, you should punish them and set examples for the world to see!! But sadly that rarely happens and all we get to hear and see is a string of unending arguments and debates. The blame game never stops and no one gets punished. Moreover, when some people try to raise their voice against corrupt people, no stone is left unturned to curb those voices. My question is how do we trust you and your government? Can you restore that “lost” trust?
