I agree with this statement. Politicians are responsible for the terrible conditions in India and many other terrible conditions that people endure. They are to blame for many things from poverty, to jobs, to health care and education. When you have corrupt politicians, everything tends to go downhill. People loose their trust in the government system and stop depending on it for any sort of help.
Yes I believe that politians are responsible for the economic downturn in the country but I am also the believer of this thing that along with the politians, we - the common people, the workforce of india are also responsible for this. Our perspective towards the development and the present condition has also added to the downturn.
