In what ways has the local Government deepened our democracy?


#1

(i) Constitutional status for local government has helped to deepen democracy in our country. It has also increased women’s representation and voice in our democracy.
(ii) Actually the new system of local government is the largest experiment in democracy conducted anywhere in the world.
(iii) Seats are reserved in the elected bodies and the executive heads of these institutions for the scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and OBC.
All these features strengthen the very aspect of our democracy.
