Plutocracy

In any democratic set up, casting of vote is a sacred duty that ensures the smooth transition of power. However, in our country, plutocracy seem to reign that disregard sanctity of vote as well as voters. Politicians-cum businessmen, here, pique malicious remarks against votes, which is averse to democratic politics.
Recently, the former Sindh Assembly Speaker, Agha Siraj Durani, for instance, raised obnoxious remarks regarding votes when he was questioned by his area men. This clarifies that politicians, apparently, ask for support to ensure democracy, but, in fact, they have plutocratic mindset and promote plutocracy by abusing the votes of poor denizens.
