Karnataka CM weeps over compulsion of alliance politics–Sign of Bihar politics to repeat–CM should be elected by secret vote

It refers to Karnataka Chief Minister sobbing in public before TV-cameras crying about compulsion of alliance-politics making him uneasy. Is this sign of repeat of Bihar-politics when Chief Minister may retain the post by changing alliance? If HD Kumaraswamy is so much upset with his assignment, he should resign from the post for enjoying peaceful personal life.

Alliance-politics is politics of black-mail, opportunism, convenience and thus corruption for which only remed y is to elect Chief Minister together with Speaker, Deputy Speaker simultaneously on secret and compulsory vote through Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) on nominations signed by at least 34-percent members of the lower House. Such elected persons may be removed by same process but with compulsion to name alternate leader in the same motion. Legislators not participtating in such election-procedure may lose voting-right in the assembly though retaining membership of the House.

Such a system can alone pave way for permanent solution of simultaneous elections to Lok Sabha and all state-assemblies eliminating aspect of unstable governments and hung state-assemblies.
