 Shillong, May 12, 2017: Very few persons are inborn leaders. They are certainly boon to the society. And most of the others who scramble to be public leaders by fair means or foul, end up being just a “liability”. They usually mislead the crowd and finally bring only misfortune to the nation. I don’t think anyone disagrees that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal – a very strange character, obviously of that type.  With the roar of his hollow rhetoric, he showed his different maverick avatars on different occasions. The unsuspecting people, who just got carried away, are now only regretting.

Is it not a big irony that one who determinedly stood as a crusader against the corruption is now neck deep in the corruption?

Is it not a big irony that one who determinedly stood as a crusader against the corruption is now neck deep in the corruption? Even one good at counting may fail to give full records in how many counts the Delhi CM proved himself as a dangerous hypocrite, and diplomatically a failed leader. Now a very annoyed Minister Kapil Mishra, who has been recently sacked by the Chief Minister, is threatening to expose the skeletons in APP’s cupboard. Other opponents of other parties are having the last laugh!

Delhi CM proved himself as a dangerous hypocrite, and diplomatically a failed leader.

By the way, given his series of tantrums and bad mouthing other rivals, particularly against PM Modi, Arvind Kejriwal has now almost dragged himself into the pit of no return. But however, with all his footprints in his short political journey, we have got a very clear message that we should not trust any leaders no matter how “holy” they claim to be.  Yes, we have to take the words of our leaders with a pinch of salt.

A global anti-corruption watchdog says the United States has dropped four spots in its list of nations’ anti-corruption efforts and is now no longer listed in the top 20 for the first time.

Acting U.S. Representative at Transparency International, Zoe Reiter, calls a four point drop in the 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) a “red flag.”

She says it comes at a time when the U.S. is experiencing “threats to its system of checks and balances” and an “erosion of ethical norms at the highest levels of power.”

“If this trend continues, it would indicate a serious corruption problem in a country that has taken a lead on the issue globally,” Reiter says.

The United States scored a 71 in the perceptions index after scoring 75 the previous year.

“The expert opinion captured by the CPI supports the deep concern over corruption in government reported by America in our 2017 survey. Both experts and the public believe the situation is getting worse,” Reiter said.

Transparency International uses several criteria for measuring how well a country is fighting corruption, including checks and balances on political power, controls on conflicts of interest and private influence on government, and voter suppression.
