India, Republic of Scams
The cycle of winning elections and looting Indiaâ€™s politics has evolved into a cycle of looting, spending part of the loot to win elections and loot more. The system has become incapable of bringing in new and capable people because of the vast resources needed to win election. This system encourages other parties to steal so as to win elections and stay in the game. In AP even state constituency is believed to require 5 to 6 crores to win elections. Every possible way to win elections is used, by dividing people, manipulating Electronic Voting machines, use money and muscle power. They promise color TVâ€™s, even homes!
