"What matters is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it's the size of the fight in the dog"
Dwight D. Eisenhower
I love this quote! Especially after reading all the cooked up rubbish about the compromised indelible ink which will be used during this weekend's elections. I was so upset I wanted to scream "WTF?!" These idiots think we're fools. If I'm the saboteur, my aim would either be to wreck the votes by registering phantom voters, gerrymandering, stopping the oppositions' buses from travelling to the voting stations, buying votes - all low-down dirty tactics already employed. Why would I get these ink and go the difficult way? This tactic is pre-meditated. No such ink had been ordered from India. Probably the reported costs from the "purchased" ink had been used for other elections "activities".
The incumbent candidates (regardless of which parties they're from) who have performed well, worked honestly hard in their constituencies should not associate themselves with these plain rigging. They should defect to the Opposition or stand as an Independent. If they've been a performer, what have they to fear as the public will still support them? They should continue serving the people.
"Every generation needs a new revolution."
"Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories."
