Describe any three broad guidelines for devising ways and means for political reforms in India



Some important political reforms should be done for improving democracy in India. These are
(i) A law should be made to regulate the internal affairs of political parties. Political parties should maintain a register of its members, to hold open elections, to follow its own Constitution, etc.
(ii) Political parties can be monitored by ordinary citizens, pressure groups, media, etc. Pressure on political parties can be done through petitions, publicity and agitation.
(iii) The quality of democracy depends on the degree of public participation. It is difficult to reform politics if ordinary citizens do not directly participate in politics and simply criticise it from outside. Thus, the participation of common people in politics is necessary for democracy.
