In India, the elections are held every five years and political leaders both in the state and at the center are chosen by people’s mandate. Elections are held under tight security and in a free and fair manner without giving special preference or importance to a particular party or community group.
Every Indian citizen has the freedom of speech, expression, and choice and has the freedom to express himself freely and make choices according to his requirements and interests.
In India, every citizen has the right to get an education. In most states, the government schools offer free education which can be availed by everyone irrespective of their social, economic, or regional upbringing.
The Indian constitution is fair and equal to all. There is no discrimination and all the culprits who bend the law face the same punishment without any privilege of age, gender, religion, or financial status.
The Indian judiciary is fair and just and is not controlled by either the President or Prime Minister. The cabinet or the army cannot interfere or challenge the verdict given in the Indian court. The Supreme Court is the Apex Court and the verdict given here is final.
