India is a democratic country and the Indians have a right to choose their leaders for the nation as well as for the diverse states. Some of the positions in the parliament and state legislative are selected by the leaders themselves, but most of it is selected by the citizens of India. As Abraham Lincoln said the Government is “by the people, for the people, and to the people”. The meaning of this phrase is so powerful and motivating which explains the true meaning of the democratic country.
