Importance of Elections in the Indian Democracy

“Democracy is Government by the people. It is a continual participative operation, not a cataclysmic, periodic exercise. The little man, in his multitude, marking his vote at the poll does a social audit of his Parliament plus political choice of this proxy.

As such, the new mandatory CSR regime will unleash a new CSR “market” in the Indian socio-economic sphere. read more
