Money is the King : MP Trading is a Reality

After yesterdays trust vote win of Monmohan's government on lot of new channel i heard " Sing is King " but I will rather say that "money is king".
Once again our MPs shows us what they are known for. Even it is subjected to enquiry whether the bribe was given or not, it is clear that trust vote did not got people trust.
Here are things which make trust Vote win for UPA failed to get people trust:
1. Allies with SP: It is decade long enmity between SP and congress & everyone knows why all of sudden they are together.
2. The day Shibu Soren announced support for UPA it was evident government is ready to give any price to save the government. Today Our politician prefers money & power over moral values.
3. Trading of MPs.
To say least what we saw on last few days is the dirty side of Indian politics.
And to do at least we all Indian should cast our vote.

Does Oposition party has to oppose always

It seems that the people who are in opposition have to oppose all policy and steps taken by government.
To me the primary responsibility of opposition party is to stop government taking wrong decisions, but what happening in india is reverse. People are opposing right decision and supporting wrong decision, just see the opposition position on Reservation Bill and Nuclear deal.
It’s time for the netas to realize that in 24/7 news channel they are on the scanner of people eyes and has to behave intelligently.
Let’s be a responsible citzen of india and try to cast your vote on analyzing the performance of both Government and opposition parties.
