All human beings are born free and equivalent in dignity and rights and that everyone has right to take part in the Government of his Country directly or through freely chosen representatives. Further the international covenant of civil and political rights stipulates that these rights are guaranteed to all citizens. These sentiments form the basis of democratic societies all over the world.
Democracy is as meaningful as it ensures participation, democracy is as meaningful as it provides a clear mandate, democracy is as meaningful as it is packed with information. Democracy in India is like a practice wherein people assess political parties and their arrangements for delivering governance and the expectations from them in terms of development of their regions.
