If a politician spends crores of rupees to contest elections and then defeated, it is unequivocally a personal loss for the candidate.
If the same candidate on the other hand wins the election, it is this time a big problem for the people, as the candidate’s focus will be on getting a good return on the Investment.
This sort of political practice has reportedly been happening for decades now!
People too often talk about Corruption, but they fail to recognise the causes for political corruption. They choose the leaders who spend more money in offering freebies, rallies, publicity and so forth.
