Left with no option just to “while away time", I went to nearby Chai(tea shop) along with local scribe to have “ chai(tea).A rustic looking middle aged youth asked the betel owner” Kaun minister Aaa raha hai;(is any minister Coming?)Nahin MP arrah hai(NO MP is coming).Woh Kaisa Dikhta hai( How does he (MP) looks?).
I stopped for a while listening to the question-which was quite innocent and significant.
What sort of democracy we have?.The people who are electing their representatives they are not asking question about what MP/MLAs done for them, the constituency, the state and the nation. Nor they know them properly. Let alone this, they have not seen him properly- leaving as an object of “curiosity”.
While coming to the function, on the way, local people welcomed him and told about the drainage problem to MP and he which he directed the Executive officer and Chairman of Balangir municipality to look into it.
