Should we have ministers who have lost in the elections?

How can we have ministers who have lost in the elections to more deserving candidates.Should the more deserving candidates be given the post of the minister?Is this a demcratic way of choice?Have any of the elected representatives voted to choose the ministers or only the leader of the party has the right to choose . Is this not dictatorship. more

Your logic would hold good if our electoral system was such that it elected only the competent people. Unfortunately that is not so and I am sure you will agree with me that all those elected are not necessarily most competent. It is for this reason that our constitution permits non elected persons to be nominated as ministers with a conditionality that such a person must get elected to the house within a period of six months. more  
Dear Dr. Sahib, Yes we all agree with the power provided by the Constitution. But is it moral or ethical to disrespect electorate verdict.Whether power should be used or the electorate need to be respected? more  
Sanjeev Ji according to Indian constitution Prime Minister can nominate any persion who may not be a member of any house of the parliament even to be a minister. If it is wrong now somebody has to ammend the constitution replacing "any persion who may not be a member of any house of the parliament even" with "a persion who has not lost the election". AAP should include this pointin AAP manifesto/ideology.But what Modi has done in respect of HRD minister is right constitutionally and we should not point it at all. more  
Dear Sir,
The issue of competency and capability was raised by one of the hon'ble member so I reacted accordingly. But in principle the person rejected by the public in the election should not be offered any post and that will be the minimum respect to the electorate that can be expressed. In fact the existing Rajya Sabha member if loose subsequently in the Lok Sabha election should quit himself from the RS on ethical/moral ground. more  
Dear Sir, We are not here to discuss the competency of a minister but rather the fact whether a person who has lost in the elections can become the minister when there were other elected representatives to choose from. We are neither against any party or person but the system which allows such a representation. more
