In India, the elections are backbone and foundation of its strong democratic framework. Any small lapse in ensuring its full sanctity has the potential danger of defeating the very principles of democracy. The bigger the election, the lesser the scope of error. The Legislative Assembly elections are very vital and key to a democratically elected government in the stste. The state election commission gears up well before elections and involves bureaucratic and executive machinery in a bid to ensure free and fair elections.
