The following are some drawbacks of election competition:

  1. It fosters division and factionalism in every community
  2. Various political parties and leaders accuse one another of things. Parties and candidates using unethical tactics win elections.

  4. Some excellent people want to serve their country. Others dislike doing so because it forces them into the noxious competition.

For the poor and the marginalized, democracy is a universal franchise and participation in the electoral process.

It is too early to say this will be successful in reducing inequality and addressing the bias in economic and social institutions. For the poor and the marginalized, democracy, is a Hobson’s choice gift.

An exciting case has been the insisting for inclusion in reserved categories by various caste groups such as the Gujjars, the Jats, and the Patels. The response of the previous UPA government was the decision to include them as part of the OBC groups, which later struck down by the Supreme Court. But this has not stopped the state from using the reserved quota status as a political bargaining tool to deal with issues of disparity among caste groups.

Currently, crooked and ineffective politicians are in charge. Several stamped and signed files approved for project budgets. But it is common for pending projects to have piles of unsigned paperwork waiting in line. Such dishonest politicians display completed work on paper while doing work it is either very subpar or incomplete. Politicians who are honest but ineffective are most welcome. The source of all evil in India is corruption, so at least they can eradicate that.
