In India, elections are almost every time competed on the basis of Party, Prime Minister, Religion etc. Most of us go to the Election Booth, not even knowing the name of the candidates competing in our constituency. A recent example of this is 'Modi vs Rahul' campaign.

This is not the right way to run the democracy we have in India. 

In India, we vote to select MP in our respective constituency. All the MPs elected than vote among themselves for the PM. 

We as citizens of India have the responsibility to select a good MP for our constituency, and then that good MPs selected, will among themselves decide a good PM. That's how our system is supposed to work. We on the other hand, in pursuit of selecting a good PM, Party etc., we forgo our only power to select a decent MP in general elections.

This has to change. Just knowing this is not enough. We have to come up with a way so that we can select a good MP in our constituency. How can we achieve this? The answer is the Debates!

Most of us have seen the US Predential Debates, or atleast heard of it. We all know how effective is it. In India, there is no use of having Prime Minister Debate, since we don't vote for PM in our country, unlike US, where they directly vote for the President.

Since we vote for MPs in General elections, their Debate is very important. The debate will ensure that each candidate has a fair chance of winning. Each candidate wants to win, which is enough motivation for him/her to point out negatives in other candidates, also, explain what he/she brings to the table. This will ensure accountability on part of MPs. Unworthy candidates won't even stand a chance.

We all have to realise that no party is all nice, and no party is all bad. There is no such thing. Every party has their negatives and positives. Thus voting on the basis of Parties is useless. 

The debates of each candidate standing in a particular constituency should be broadcasted in that constituency, which will be seen by the people in constituency. Thus, citizens would be in a better position to choose a good candidate. 

This way we will have better MPs, a better PM, and a better India.

Note:

If anyone supports this idea, kindly comment a better write up for this petition. Writing is not really my thing. 

I am not against or supporting any party through this petition. I just want to make our democratic system better.
