‘Blame anybody, but don’t blame the voter’

Editorial in The Telegraph on the nataka in Karnataka:

“Not much can be expected of politicians who are least interested in governance, in the interests of the people or even in any kind of ideology. President’s rule in such a situation is an admission of the defeat of the system because of the stubborn greed and egotism of a few people voted to power… Voters cannot be blamed for apathy and cynicism. They are looking at a situation in which democratic functioning has failed.”
