See footnotes and delete words in brackets.Now itís more than 14 days, but the Government formation is no where in sight in Maharashtra. Itís a clear mockery of the democratic system; MLAs get elected to work for the welfare of the people. All MLAs instead of fighting for social issues like inflation, illiteracy and other serious matters/issues which are hindrance/impediment to (the) development, they are fighting among themselves, to grab key portfolios Ė finance, Home department etc. the objective is to overflow their bank balance within next five years (should be overflowing) so that they can have a (live) lavish and luxurious living (life) for a lifetime. No matter they get elected after that or not. It shows/reveals how much they are willing to work for the welfare of people. The congress Government at the center just to grab the media attention initiated an austerity drive, to make us, the innocent citizen of this country feel that they mean serious business. They should know /must realize that it is not the time to show small gestures and then do a self-patting on their back (themselves).
 Development is uncountable, so not to be preceeded by article.
 For a lifetime is a known phrase.
