India may be poor and home of largest number of poor people but people who get elected to any legislature are either rich or become the rich. How? Everyone know that in India.
2014 is witnessing a new kind of Government in Delhi. A Government in which Ministers travel in Public Transport (Bus or Metro Rail), like working class people, meeting people and talking people. No Cars and no coloured beacon or police pilot.
It is a first in 66 years since independence. How long will it last? Will it spread to other States? Will the Minister grow rich?
Question is not about the party in power or who will come to power. Question is will elected representatives start looking like representatives rather than Kings, Queens and Princes?
