In a democratic country, the development will be slow, decision-making process will be slow but people have a right to overrule the decision, you have the right to ask questions. In dictatorship decision making process will n if the decision is good then development will also grow fastest because you don't have to ask each n every person opinion on making a decision. But people don't have the right to overule it, or questions it, they have to accept the policy with both tied on their back.

India is the fastest developing nation growing at around 7-7.5%.

China has thus far been the fastest developing nation growing at a rate greater than 10% since 1990s.

GST Bill, which is a landmark bill, has stayed in the Rajya Sabha for two complete sessions as Congress, which is the majority in Rajya Sabha, is not willing to discuss the bill in the upper house.

Lack of Education in rural India has led to the election of inefficient politicians to the government which has hampered India's progress.

Growth in China due to Communism has not been very sustainable as they have started to slow down recently.

Hi. This is Dhananjay. Today, I am going to speak about democracy.

As the question is whether democracy hampering our nation s progress or not. I would say No.

India is a country where duff religion people are staying together. They all have a different view towards the world. It's really a great achievement for India as compared to others.

But It's true. In a voting system, there are no. Of persons are there who don't have to potential to choose a leader may b there illiterate. That may lead to corruption.

But. Still, democracy system gives us a chance to correction. If the elected leader Is not that much effective. , then after five years, we can eradicate him by voting.

Last but not the least, democratic leaders power is within our constitution. So. As we have both the best democratic system and Indian constitution, No doubt. Our country will progress.

Thank you.

Yes, because India's people don't have enough maturity to how to select proper leader, 80% population don't know about their assembly or local leader, they are only compelled to vote, just simple thing or example is after 1 or 2 years preparation of IAS person is prepare fellow toilets in village and, illiterate minister drove trillion rupee ministry, how can we say that we are on right path, every minister or government only fooled people of India for only 1 simple seat, not 100% but 1000% government is not running on their homemade CONSTITUTION itself.

The only hype created by every party, we can show only 2 things in barking of electoral parties, "what the previous party has done and what we did", India is the best country in the world but we don't have best leaders in the world like Swami Vivekananda,

Democracy is hampering India's progress. India is such a beautiful and secular country but it's image is being destroyed by its own citizens. Democracy has given the citizens a lot of freedom which we as citizens don't deserve (not all). Breaking of laws is common nowadays in India just because of so much freedom. I read the newspaper every day and the news comes like- police got beaten up by villagers when they went to arrest the accused ATM thief. This has no sense people just come on to beat one another in small things, why would police take a person without any reason. I also fear about that day when people would start beating up the PM if he/she doesn't follow the people's orders. It's like we don't even have a government and we're just ruling ourselves. We were divided that's why the British was able to rule upon us for 200 years and after 70 years of independence, we still have that casual attitude, the quality of disobedience. We just try to take shortcuts. That's why so much of Black money has gone out of India. We all don't act as responsible citizens Ex- not paying taxes, spreading corruption, etc. I'm not saying we need a leader like Hitler, I'm saying that we need a strict government which can put the country on the right path. Britain also has Monarchy, but their citizens never complain about it because it runs the country so well. It's not all our fault. It's the fault of leaders as well who drove the country downwards rather than developing it. If the leaders were strict enough in the starting itself we wouldn't have to face such a situation now. There are crimes happening always illiteracy, discrimination, caste system and many more which some of us don't even know. The point of a reservation was meaningless. I know it was very important to implement such a thing at that time but it was also government's duty to remove it after 10 years as well which they did not do. This has resulted in BONUS for failures they just make a fake card from anywhere, get a reservation and get the degree easily and the general category people don't get their degree just because of 1%.

I won't say that Democracy is hampering India's progress as it is the fastest growing economy but it is slowing it down a lot. We must need to make strict laws otherwise the attitude of the citizens will never change and it may never be a DEVELOPED country but if cooperate with the government and try our best to remove most of the bad qualities of the country, we may succeed as nothing is impossible. JaiHind!

Hello everyone,

In my point of view, democracy is right to choose the right person for the society to dovelopment but if some time we face any kind ok problem in which we blame democracy is just because of illatrcy because we the poeple of India don't want to choose the right person of ourself because we always run before cast religionmany time I have seen that we know that person is wrong he will not do any kind of devolopment but we sitlli ssupport just because the person is of my cast my religion we know that the person is criminal he will just want to get the power to do anything we still suppport him so I don't thing that the way is wrong we are wrong we should be aware for our politician nd should choose the right one because we are seeing that the gvt officers are being currupt for thier own benefit. And the family member or the people who are connected to this kind of politician are more powerful than politician just because of them so we should choose the right person.

Democracy is a system of government in which we can choose our government A/c to our choice that didn't occur in monarchy system. Democratic got selected by the people for the people and always remain with the people.

We have the example of South Africa where democracy help in the abolition of discrimination between black and white by Nelson Mandela.

How can we say that the democracy is hampering the INDIA's progress?

Actually, the main reason behind the hampering of progress is illiteracy, poverty, gender inequalities, lack of patriotic culture etc. Here we choose our govt on the basis of caste, religion and party system. Most of the seats here are reserved for the quotas like SC, ST.

So, I think we should change our mentality and perception towards our country, our govt then only our country can progress.

Our textbooks may say that democracy results in more sensible, accountable decisions, in India, We are so sensible and intelligent that we take years to muster up good policies and infrastructure. Above all our justice system has several loop holes in it because of The extensive rights every citizen gets in the justice system. Here ppl are being raped every day and Only half of thE A HOLES are convicted while in Several monarchies Across the world they are beaten to death. Long story short, democracy isn't heaven.

The idea that few hundreds of people can represent the interests of hundred crore people is a naive imagination.

If you can't trust people governing themselves, how can you trust them giving power to some other person who pays no price for being wrong? Power is a primitive idea of well-being. Good politician or a bad politician, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Good govt or bad govt, govt makes people's lives difficult to live.

Who is perfect? Who is active? & those types of people are getting job or duties.

But Very sad for Indian Democracy system A perfect Candidate can't get any duties because he is belonging General Caste but he has obtained marks 78% whereas an SC Caste candidate can get job easily he got only 38% So it's a shame for Indian democracy system now 70th years Indian's independent day have already crossed.

After 60 years of independent also in democracy, we can't get jobs to people in India, food, shelter why because of age old politicians. Their money minded killing the patience. Why we can't get some revolutions.

2. Big national parties have to trust young ag e (not the same family) people.

3. Stop giving money to voting in rural or in slums.

4. Educate the democracy.

There is vast strength of illiterate people who cast their vote for religious, cast influence and used to go in a wrong decision by either their own will or by regional political threat.

I don't think democracy is hampering India's growth. Democracy is, in fact, necessary for sustained economic growth and progress. It provides the conducive business environment and a level playing field to the new firms. Openness and liberal business policies are what a nation need to grow and prosper, which is not what we see in Russia or 1980s China or even post-independent India. We could only imagine how difficult was it to start a new business before LPG reforms. Could India be what we see it today, without democracy? I don't think so.

Research says that at the current pace of growth, India would surpass China in a decade or so. China, no doubt has been a strong economy for so long but would it continue to be so under a tyrant leader? Only as long as it has visionary leaders like today.

The Ex-president of america is said that of the people, for the people, and by the people. Now I m going to tell something about that topic yes democracy is hampering the progress of India because in India there are many politicians and due to them we are so back I m not blaming them I just telling truth. When our pm or cm give any facility to citizen but mediator where ate money that's why our country is also still poor. Because in our country there are many poor people.

According to me, the government is the main reason for the Indian development. We can partially blame our constitution also because it has given many of the rights to the people. Yes, I agree that democracy is the better form of government. The representatives who are being elected by the people are cheating the people. Before the elections, they promise the people that they are going to provide everything if they are elected.

People with this hope elect that representatives. After they are being elected they show their real attitude. Some laws are implemented by the government but they are not reachable to the people because of some mediators.

No system of government is good or bad, be it democracy or monarchy. A country under a good ruler can prosper greatly, but in the hands of a tyrant it can be doomed to pain, injustice and exploitation. Same goes for democracy. What makes democracy so much dangerous is that if you overthrow a bad leader of the power the new elected candidate that we elect turns out to be of the same kind as previous manipulative and self serving. Democracy gives a huge amount of power to the person in the rule which he uses against us and we cannot hold them accountable for it.

A leader before being elected is servant of the public and after election public is his slave. The public is not at fault because.

1) Educated people think in the elections, faces change while everything else remains same.

2) Poor section is striving to earn food.

3) Rich sector well. The rich gets richer holds true irrespective of government.

Education is a joke in the India majority of the population is illiterate any many of the illiterate are unemployed. Government schools have nothing and many cannot afford private education. And we say India is developing. We talk of metro, GAGAN, AGNI-V etc. What a shame!

Policies are made on paper and stay on paper. They never reach to the public in need. Farmers die and we say we will make your earning double by 2020 but sorry right now we can't help you.

The list is very long. The bottom line is that yes, democracy is a hindrance, but monarchy in the wrong hands can be a tale of gore and devastation. It's the choice between bad and less bad.

1. Democracy means, we the people, for the people, by the people.

2. But today constitutional laws has become sluggish and may be misinterpreted.

Few roadblocks to substantiate it:

- Long+tiring law making processes.

- Constantly changing government.

- Distributed powers may lead to corruption and scams.

- Freedom of speech + expression misused: to divide the country on caste, creed, region, language basis.

3. We are tagged as developing country facing problems like unemployment, illiteracy, poverty, crimes, riots, naxalism, terrorism etc.

4. We must not forget: No system is full proof. Democracy is a beautiful system but we need to:

- Check/mend constitutional law book.

- Prevail awareness + education to every thick-thin region of the country.

- Make use of technology for more transparency either it is election, or policy implementation.

- At individual level we should apply simple formula to life like:

* Each 1 teach 1.

* No to corruption.

* Know your right as well as your duty.

In my opinion, democracy is not hampering the progress of India but it is we, the people of India, who are responsible for degrading the value of democracy in India. Democracy has enabled us to choose what is right & root out what is wrong but only when we use this supreme power in a right & honest manner.

But in actual, we, the people of India are indulged in overlooking the long term or broad viewed benefits by favouring the political person/party in elections, who serves our own purpose either directly or indirectly. Thus we misuse our right.

Secondly, there are so many people in India, who really don't know & understand the meaning of democracy, they play a wide role in the electing a wrong politician. So, our educational system needs to be strengthened so that at least everyone in our society is aware about right & wrong.

Apart from that, even after each & everyone being aware of it, what is needed most is OUR HONEST ATTITUDE towards our country & it's people. Then only we can imagine a developed India in future.

Hello everyone,

In my opinion, Democracy is one of the thing that hampering the progress of India. Democracy is a gifted choice for the people of the India because they are having chance to choose who they want to rule them. I always blame the people of India as they fail to choose the correct person as their political leader.

Moreover the leaders also fail to feel their responsibility about which position they are and how much they need to do for the people. In my view, the leader must work for the people selflessly and they periodically review what they did, and what they will going to do for the people.

Further the plans and policies which the government made never meet the low-level people. It will be better that those policies should mainly focussed on welfare of very low-level people. Because nowadays "RICH BECOME RICHER & POOR BECOME POORER".

Finally I conclude that A GOOD DEMOCRACY IS IN OUR HANDS. So we choose a correct leader and make our INDIA a Developed Democratic country.

Democracy is hampering the growth of India. Democracy leads to vote-bank politics and vendetta politics. Sometimes the ruling party decisions which aide to growth get delayed or never get implemented.

For example, Goods and Service-tax bill and Land bill, if implemented can boost our GDP, but their implementation is delayed because the opposition is creating a parliament log-jam.

In my opinion definitely the uneducated should be deprived from voting. The reason that he doesn't thing above square meal. In the same way the elected government should put in free education for at least for a period of 15 years spending more than 10% of GDP on education. If this continues the next generation will be matured enough to cast the vote and elect the right government. Otherwise people will cast vote for few hundred rupees or any gifts.

Democracy is one such thing which is bringing corruption in India. It's true that democracy is hampering India's progress. People are unable to cast their votes properly. Money and muscle power has become the main motive of almost all the political parties who are supporting criminals to win elections.

These types of corruptions are bringing in poverty and is promoting injustice. Such types of practices can't be called democracy, it is almost equal to monarchy. That's all I want to say for the motion.

In my opinion, democracy is not hampering the progress of India but it is we, the people of India, who are responsible for degrading the value of democracy in India. Democracy has enabled us to choose what is right & root out what is wrong but only when we use this supreme power in a right & honest manner.

But in actual, we, the people of India are indulged in overlooking the long term or broad viewed benefits by favouring the political person/party in elections, who serves our own purpose either directly or indirectly. Thus we misuse our right.

Secondly, there are so many people in India, who really don't know & understand the meaning of democracy, they play a wide role in the electing a wrong politician. So, our educational system needs to be strengthened so that at least everyone in our society is aware about right & wrong.

Apart from that, even after each & everyone being aware of it, what is needed most is OUR HONEST ATTITUDE towards our country & it's people. Then only we can imagine a developed India in future.

We cannot say that democracy is hampering India's progress. Because the democratic government has given people lot of freedom to express their views and even to question the government. In that view, through democracy each and every citizen is involved in the administration either directly or indirectly. So people get more concerned about the governmental happenings and development of the country. This is possible only through the democratic form of government.

But at the same time, democracy hesitates imposing serious laws and rules on people which have given them much more freedom. The people use the freedom in wrong way and they even cheat the government. So as the famous saying goes by, "Too much of anything is good for nothing", the democratic form of government should not give more freedom to people which in turn will ruin both the people and country. Hence democracy should be maintained with some strict laws and rules.

Hello everyone!

I'm just mentioning what I feel needs to be done.

1. First and foremost step is to impart education to all, be it literary or vocational so that employment is possible, people become able to at least meet their necessities.

2. Alleviation of poverty thus would alleviate the need to sell their votes n the spread of moral education will alleviate the greed due to which people sell their votes. As they will work for a greater greed - for their long lasting welfare.

Therefore no problems at all. All we need to do is to spread education. Both moral in literary/vocational. Rest all edu. Will do and of curse. Its not democracy which is hampering our progress, it's lack of education, it's poverty, it's greed, it's our inability to foresee inability to think of even our own benefits wisely.

Truly saying democracy is hampering India's progress. There are various reasons that prove it. We don't have any government party that can truly assure us the development because there is a rush for grabbing the power and loot the country as much as possible. There are leaders who support criminals just to win more seats and be into power. Speaking from the heart they are just exploiting our country just like the Britishers did in the last century.

Also if somebody wants to work for betterment there are people who question there governance and hinder their working process so we need a form of honest governance where the government is given much power where they can work freely without much disruption.

Hello friends!

Democracy is one of the various forms of government. There has always been a question mark on democracy as a suitable way of governance. In my opinion today's age is an age of transformation. We have come out of old mindsets of imperialism, colonialism and racism. Today the world belongs to everyone irrespective of his linguistic, communal, sexual or cultural orientation or choice.

In such a condition, Democracy is the most suitable form of government as it takes into account every one's need and aspirations. We have also seen that democratic nations are more content and stable. The examples of Nepal or Afghanistan who have shown exceptional decrease in insurgency after switching to democracy also proves this point. Democracy if percolated to roots like India is doing in Panchayati Raj can also help the masses and involve the general public in formation and execution of welfare schemes.

According to my point of view, democracy is not hampering the progress of India. It would be so then america should have been a undeveloped country b/c democracy is also there. It means there is some fault is our system.

I would like to point out some of them,

1- Too many political parties are there which just support to government in the centre for their personal benefit like protecting them from CBI.

2- A lots of people are uneducated and they are unaware of their right so these innocent people are made fool my our politician.

3- We have lack of sense of nationalism for Eg: many times political party amend the bill or introduce a new bill just for their own benefit irrespective of thinking about countries interest.

4- Corruption has become very big issue b/c we are just looking a law against corruption which will do magic and we will be corruption free country. This is not like that we our self have to take initiative against corruption then it will remove by its own.

There are many more point but here I want to say that it is not way of governance which decides growth and prosperity of country but it ts thinking of people which decides our growth especially in democracy where governance is for the people, by the people and of the people.

Hi everyone,

As I think, democracy is not responsible for imbalance of our economy and growth. Democracy implies government of the people, for the people, by the people. In broad way it means freedom to everyone[females, backward tribe peoples (BTP)]. We can see in past (after 1990's) we rather find a successive female and BTP. There is no education for them.

From when we adopted democracy there is no such rule that a farmer child should be a farmer. We can see many successive woman and BTP.

As I know that many persons thinks that democracy is responsible for corruption and many problems. These problems doesn't relate to democracy. As I think democracy is the solution for these problems. In early 2009 we got right to information through democratic way.

May I also remind you in past two decade Election Commission is trying transparent ability of political candidate and EC also succeeded in its efforts. EC made three rules for a political candidate through the supreme court are written below.

1. Not all criminal cases will lead to the bar. Only heinous offences like murder, rape, dacoity, kidnapping or moral turpitude.

2. The case should have been registered at least six months before the elections.

3. The court should have framed the charges.

I know there are pitfalls in these rules but EC is trying get rid off these pitfalls so the elections should be more transparent.

For corruption we should make our law strong. In our law system there are many pitfalls and corrupt people misusing these pitfalls to misguide the justice. So we should change our law, not wholly but we can remove those pitfalls which are bread n butter for corrupt politicians and criminals.

As we know that we are second largest country in the population and how many court we have to punish criminals and to get justice in time. Think as per our population nothing and judge also get too many holidays (192 holidays in a year).

In the last as I can say democracy is the prime factor for progress of India and rather to blame democracy, we should have get some rule by democratic way to solve these problems.

1. Right to reject (rather than NOTA).

2. Right to recall.

3. Government should make many courts so we can get justice at the time.

4. We should remove the pitfalls which exist in the law.

India is the seventh largest (by area) and the second most populous country in the world, with roughly one-sixth of its population, of about a billion and a quarter. India is one of the world's oldest civilizations, yet a very young nation.

Under Mughal control for much of its history until its colonization by European powers in the mid-eighteenth century. The world's largest democracy by electorate was created after independence in 1947 under the leadership of its nationalist movement, the Indian National Congress.

Elections to its Parliament are held once every 5 years. Currently, Prime minister Narendra Modi is the head of the government, enjoying a majority in the Parliament, while President Pranab Mukherjee, is the head of state. India is a constitutional republic governed under the world's longest written constitution, federally consisting of 29 states and seven centrally administered union territories, with New Delhi as the nation's capital.

The country has six main national parties: the Bhartiya Janta Party(BJP), Indian National Congress(INC), Communist Party of India(CPI), the Communist Party of India(Marxist)(CPI(M)), Bahujan Samaj Party(BSP) and the Nationalist Congress Party(NCP). At the level of its states, many regional parties stand for elections to state legislatures, every five years. The Rajya Sabha elections are held every 6 years. This is just a small detail.

But Indian democracy is weak. There is no denying that. Corruption has a stronghold on our politicians and that, too, is because the we have failed to educate our entire population in terms of government responsibility. By definition, a democracy can only work well if people, armed with information and self-interest, participate.

Democracy is a system, which has nothing to do with economic progress, because economic progress is another system. Of course, politics and economy go hand in hand. If you say politician who make the democracy and did not follow the principles then regression is the ultimate end-product.

The reality is something different, which is not visible to anybody. People think that democracy implies government of the people, for the people and by the people. So thinks that it implies government of the politician, for the politician and by the politician. But both the categories of people are wrong. Really it is of the business magnets, for the business magnets and by the business magnets.

As we know for completion of these projects and for the effective implementation of the welfare schemes, the 5 years of ruling may not be sufficient and after 5 years again elections will come.

If suppose another party forms government then the completion of those projects which was initiated by the previous government Will may not happen faster. They try to leave their mark by introducing their own schemes and their own projects according to their party manifesto.

Happy to share my opinion with you friends.

Only when democracy is completely changed that is rules of democracy has to be changed to presidential rule like in most developed countries. Since in India due to lack of strict rules we indians are becoming lazy actually. For example wearing a helmet is absolutely a useful rule but most of them are not following it. We can find many examples where due to lack of strict rules in India it is still developing. Of course as a human being we are free to express freedom of thought right to live etc. But implementing strict rules like every one must go karate training at childhood level etc where it is in china.

Atlast I want to say one thing. Even if strict rules hurts someone it is useful and must be followed by every citizen then only India will absolutely become an ideal. Instead of creating awareness etc the government should strongly make sure that most of the people are following it. This can be achieved only if our democracy principles are changed and strict rules has to be implemented. Thank you all.

India's development not failing due to democracy, India's democracy as a whole failing due to corrupted people at every level of society. May be some economic numbers on the charts do show that India as a developing country since 50 years but I can't imagine any era where it can change its status from developing to developed without changing individual's attitude towards the society.

Until we teach our kids about treating every other person as a human being, until we learn ourselves to be example for the next generations, until we hold the urge to give bribe to speed up things in government offices, until we as a society (every Individual) learns to restore the lost morals in corruption; we will be keep reading those sudden company shutdowns, we will be keep reading news about deaths of people, we will be keep reading news about child abuse and hell lot.

A country development doesn't mean rupee Vs dollar, democratic country's development truly relies in its people ability to breath without fear, people in the country need not to rob the other for their survival, until this society as a whole learns to treat each individual with respect by killing all that cast system.

Had democracy being hampering a country's progress I don't think other democratic countries will be developed eg. USA. It is not democracy but the delay in the system, the lack of morale, the greed for corruption, the lack of education and awareness of one's right, the whole process of election are some of the many factors that have hamper the growth of India.

It is not that we are not developing instead we are among the top developing countries of the world but we are slow in our progress. We are no less than other countries but we sold our morale to corruption, bribe and social evils. It is not the government to be blamed completely but every individual is to be blamed.

I agree that democracy is hampering the progress of the nation as if we see the whole election system which is the most fundamental part of a democratic system is full of corrupt and misleading practices.

As a majority of educated people does not cast their vote and the major chunk of voters are uneducated and cast their vote on the basis of religion, cast, creed, language etc. A capable Government does come up. The whole reservation system, which was started taking the vision to decrease it in the future has on the contrary increased to many folds.

Secondly due to a democratic government rules and regulations made are not strong for e.g. In China in the late 1970's they introduced 1 child policy to control their increasing population this step is helping them now. These hard policies can't be introduced in India because the next day the government Will fall.

Democracy can never hamper any country's development. Democracy gives freedom to people to choose representatives who work for their development, if they don't then people will definitely dispose them for sure. But democracy demands sincerity and right vision.

If democracy is hampering India's growth then we would not have SAIL, BHEL, IOCL, DELHI METRO various private sector etc, all this happened because of democracy and this development is not confined to specific area, development has happened in every corner of this country. We are atomic power, space technology powerhouse and we run the cheapest railway in the world. People from corner of this country contributing to its economy. All this happened because we still have people who vote for the development of this country.

Who can forget the landslide victory of Janta party in 1977 which reminded the strongest PM in our country Indira Gandhi that we people own the real power and it should be run according the people and for the people.

If we talk about India where we believe "UNITY WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL", democracy play a mandatory role for the development of the country. Unless and until we are democratic, the progress of the nation will not be possible. India where different races answer species of people take breath in this country, must follow a government which is for the people, by the people and of the people. It is essential that for every decision there must be people's views behind in it.
