Angry why we don't see any agitation over MPs involvement in scandals

Where our able leaders find reasons to burn effigies of actors and cricketers even at a short notice, nobody seems eager to do that for these MPs. Forget about demands to get them punished.

On top of it, reportedly some MPs have demanded an action on reporters involved in sting operations.

A nation deserves the leaders it elects. Indians are corrupt as a society, therefore we have stupid agitations against everything under the sun except corruption because most of us are corrupt. We would rather bribe the cop 50 rs than pay the 400rs fine for overspeeding.

We would rather buy the tickets in black than stand in a line

We would rather pay money in donations for a seat in a college but shy away from entrances.

So when a MP takes a bribe why the outrage.

We go to vote knowing the candidate is corrupt. Serves us right.

Handful of guys who do something are rewarded in one of the following ways

1. Murdered by petrol pump owners
2. Shot dead on highways in bihar
3. Picked up at 2 am in the night by cars with red light, have their wives picket up for questening. Threatened.

These guys from cobrapost will now have CBI after them and even if they sneeze where its not allowed, they will be in trouble.
