  3. 3. Money and muscle power in elections are the direct consequence of corruption in government machinery without eradicating corruption, it is impossible to defeat money and muscle power in elections They collect funds from companies and business houses and use this money to influence the voter to vote in their favour Men who value ethics are enabled to come to the centre stage of politics there is little chance for a common man with honest intentions and little resources to contest elections , even if he has the capability The political parties only consider the “winnability” (money power & muscle power) of the person for nominating him as the party candidate The targets for the hungry Indian politicians are the simple minded and poor citizens, since: people below poverty line get tempted to easy money vague promises due to their desperate economic and social conditions.
