  • question_answer   How does our election law regulate campaigns?         

    Answer:

                      In a democracy, it is best to leave political parties and candidates free to conduct election campaign. But it is also necessary to regulate campaign to ensure that every political party and candidate gets a fair and equal chance to compete. According to our election law, no party or candidate can (i) bribe or threaten voters. (ii) use any place or worship or appeal to the voters in the name of religion or caste. (iii) use government resources, government vehicles, air crafts for elections. (iv) spend more than Rs. 25 lakh in a constituency for a Lok Sabha election and Rs. 10 lakh in a constituency in an Assembly election. (v) once elections are announced no minister can lay foundation stones of any project or take any policy decision.
