Trust in government

Democracy is the government of the people. Once the people have elected a party to power, the intellectuals, NGOs, social activists etc. should repose faith in the intentions, ability , fairness etc. of the government and allow the government to pursue its policies, programmes etc. vigorously and should not organise agitations etc. which would slow the programmes of the government. However, every one has freedom of speech etc and they can try to explain to the people  as to how the current government’s  policies are against their interests.If the people are convinced of the opposition’s view they would vote out the present government in the next elections and bring in a new party to power.

Further whatever a Minister 9r a bureaucrat does in g00d faith should not be questioned by a successor government. This is necessary to ensure that the Ministers and bureaucrats do not avoid implementing their policies in fear of being questioned later.
