Where’s our democracy?

The election has become nothing but a race between the ruling party and the opposition, as they only intend to defeat each other at any cost; even if it means depriving people of their voting rights. Consequently, the public is being torpid and apathetic towards elections. The number of voters have decreased after the national election due to allegations of rigging. To counter this, the election commission has provided EVM in the city polls. But even then people continue to show indifference, and the inaccuracy in voting continues to prevail. Snatching away people’s rights sound more like autocracy than democracy.
