Khammam: Due to lack of internal democracy within the political parties, the leaders of the party are assuming greater power and are indulging in many irregularities, observed senior journalist Pasham Yadagiri here on Sunday.
Addressing the media persons at the press club in Khammam, P Yadagiri alleged that the party workers are not getting sufficient information on what is happening inside the party to which they are loyal to. As a result the leaders of those parties are assuming greater power to make decision in the name of the party.
Due to lack of internal democracy within the political parties which are existing today, many persons who are rich, industrialists, realtors, land encroachers, sand mafia and liquor kings are getting elected to Parliament and Assemblies leaving behind the loyal party workers and activists. India is a democratic country and it is the prime responsibility of every citizen to protect democracy. Democracy should be in all sectors and people should be aware of that. The people should elect only those people who will serve society and works for betterment of the people but not to those rich men who are trying to kill the democracy after getting elected using their money power, he said.
More than loyalty to the party, attachment to the leaders is becoming more important nowadays due to lack of internal democracy in the parties. Party workers must question their leaders and must follow the principles strictly to save the democracy, he appealed. By conducting village level meetings, after conducting proper survey then the political parties must allot the tickets to fair candidates who works for society but not to the criminals, landlords and rich people, he added.
