Democracy is considered as one of the best forms of government because it ensures liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship, equality of status and opportunity, fraternity as well as the right to participate in political decision-making. Participation and control of governance by the people of the country is the essence of democracy. Such participation is possible only when the powers of the state are decentralized to the district, block and village levels where all the sections of the people can sit together, discuss their problems and suggest solutions and plan execute as well as monitor the implementation of the programmes. It is called the crux of democratic decentralization.
In a democracy, the decision-makers should use their powers, as far as possible, with the consent and understanding of all concerned. By way of Panchayati Raj, people participate more and more in politics and administration. The key to the success of democracy lies where more and more strength is given to people’s elected bodies at the district, block and village levels. At the village level, even the poor people, including the SCs, STs, women and other marginalized sections of the community get a chance to participate in the administration of the village. Thus, Panchacyati Raj is a system which ensures people’s participation at the lowest levels. It is democracy at the base level. PRIs become a training ground for developing leadership at the primary stage because they become well-versed with the local problems and ways to deal with such problems.
Thus, the PRIs can ensure grass roots democracy in true spirit, provided that all the powers and functions regarding rural development, along with proper resources and staff, are vested in them. This should undoubtedly pave the way for Gram Swarajya in India.
