While addressing the audience, Chief Guest, Hon'ble Vice President of India Jagdeep Dhankhar stated that in a real democracy, citizens wield power through their election mandate.

Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar spoke at the 8th Dr. L M Sanghvi memorial speech on Universal adult franchise: translating India’s political transition to social reform. The event was hosted by OP Jindal Global University (JGU) on Friday.

While addressing the audience, Chief Guest, Hon’ble Vice President of India Jagdeep Dhankhar stated that in a real democracy, citizens wield power through their election mandate.

VP Dhankhar said, “We are the world’s most vibrant democracy, representing the optimal level. We began with a constituent assembly whose members were extremely talented, drawn from all segments of society, but with each election, our parliament progressively reflects the authentic region of the people, and now what we have in parliament is a fairly elected representative, and at the global level, we do not have a parallel level at that count.”

He further added “India is a thriving democracy, with our Parliament growing more inclusive and diverse with each election. It genuinely embodies our folks’ mission. We are on the rise as a country, and this growth is inexorable. When compared to other nations, our strength was clearly apparent in our management of the Covid-19 epidemic.”

“We have created an ecology for good government, and it is critical that we prioritise our national interests above everything else. Indian citizen have power as a result of their mandate and commitment, and this power is manifested through the most scientific mechanisms: legislation!” stated Vice President Dhankhar.
