Political Parties

There are too many political parties in India. That may or may not be a good thing but remember we are a democracy. India is a world’s biggest democracy, democracy means you have to listen to the majority view. Janta decides who should lead. Not the one with the biggest microphone or one with the biggest purse. Every individual carries one vote and no matter what intellectuals say, every vote and every individual counts. Learn about these political parties and most importantly understand what issues they are promising to solve.
