If there is no election campaign, how it is going to affect the results?The assembly elections in the 5 states have been concluded. Next year there will be general elections and every political party will try their best to convince people to vote for them. Throughout the year all the political parties organize meetings at different places all over the country and in many of those meetings large gathering of the common man is observed. After the announcement of the dates of the election, these meetings intensify and election campaigns are held almost at every corner of the country. There are allegations of distribution of money by a few political parties to garner more votes. There are widespread violations of the election code of conduct too.
In most of the campaigns by the political parties, we find a good gathering. Every political party has a separate division that looks after the management of the election procedure and they spend a huge amount during campaigns. We will find many people disgusted by the actions of the politicians, still, there are huge public gatherings in political meetings. In today's world, everybody is aware of the happenings around us and people are much fond of the political news. They can easily decide whom to vote for by keeping a watch around them. All the political parties publish their election manifestos before every election and people can easily find their developmental agendas to decide about the candidates/parties. Now, suppose if the election campaigns are not organized how it is going to affect the results? Do you think election campaigns are really required?
