Post Mortem

The government we deserve

 The entire state of Nagaland requires a state of support and implementation of progressive plans. The election is knocking at the door.  Election being a platform for every individual to exercise their Universal Suffrage, are we really making the best use of this right? This is a million dollar question and we need to push ourselves to understand the present socio-economic and political condition of the state.

 Real development is possible when you have people work in coordination with their representatives and vice versa. But are our representatives doing the needful? Or for that matter are we electing the right person to represent us! Can everyone of us contribute a little more of our effort towards achieving a better society? 

Even when a labourer performs his duties and obligations in the agricultural sector, it is enough to feed the population.  Likewise, if we as responsible citizens duly perform our duty of voting for a candidate, not based on any prejudice or bias, will that not feed the wholesome development and healthy nourishment of our state?  Is it too much to ask for? They say we receive a government we deserve. Undoubtedly a government is a reflection of its people. We ask questions like: Can Nagaland ever develop? Will the roads ever be mended? Why is electricity supply so scarce?

But before we ask any of these questions, we should ask ourselves if we deserve any better. If the government is a reflection of the people, shouldn’t we introspect and analyse our own image and substance before we criticise the shadow that we cast? Perhaps it is just a thought which will remain unanswered. So, we as citizens of Nagaland, we should not let our votes go in vain. A single vote can transform a state. As such we should vote for a candidate based on merit and morality rather than our prejudices and bias.
