Is Democracy Suitable to all the Nations?
Some people are of the opinion that democracy is suitable only to those countries which are industrialised and economically developed. They are of the opinion that this form of government is not suitable for developing countries like India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
They argue that faster and better development is possible only in dictatorship where there is discipline among the people and no time is wasted in the legislatures. In democracy, decisions are taken with one eye on the future elections keeping in view the interests of the voters who are supporters of the party in power.
But this is not true. We have democracies (like India, England and U.S.A.) performing much better for the removal of poverty and backwardness in their respective countries. In India, government has implemented several schemes for the welfare of the people and implemented policies to ensure equal opportunities for all the citizens in the fields of education and employment.
On the other hand, under dictatorship, the dictators do not take much interest in the economic development of the country. Only those in power and supporters of the ruling group enjoy all the benefits and privileges. They amass wealth through illegal and corrupt me
Thus, democracy is suitable for all the nations. Since under this system, Government works for the welfare of all the citizens.
