I read this in one of the orkut groups, written by a young Pune concerned citizen... eventually the Moral of his post turned aggressive... Long back I had a discussion with Kari.. we discussed that Yes Politics should be made as a profession there should be a org chart and there should be a progress card for each elected person. The Prime Minister / Chief Minister should be the acting reporting Manager and should appraise the MP's MLA's based on their performances... as we calculate the ROI... the performance of a Member of such house should be calculated...

It would only work well when people take it as a profession... at the moment it is NOT a profession, it is just another working body of people who once elected are not afraid of loosing their jobs for 5 years...

Change of Constitution???? Yes why not
