The article focuses on the policies of former U.S. President Lyndon Baines Johnson. There were accusations against Johnson of indulging in corrupt practices in the 1948 elections. But Johnson overcame those accusations, and in due course became the country's President. A delegation of American scholars had been sent by Johnson to South Vietnam to report on the election of 1967. One of those scholars said that he had found the elections in South Vietnam to be similar to those in the U.S. Information has been given about the political corruption in the U.S. during the term of Johnson.
