Emerging Electoral Trends and Violations of Human Rights
It has attempted to accentuate vital issues of human rights that usually experienced during the course of election time. It is known to all, Indian electoral system and the standard of politics have been deteriorating day by day. Violation of electoral rights on the eve of elections is becoming a general phenomenon in India and more particularly in the conflict states may be confirmed from the following chapters of this book. Significantly, extra-constitutional bodies have often been interfering in the electioneering process which has great impact in the electoral rights. The emerging trends of power dominance in the electoral mosaic, criminalisation of politics and politicisation of issues and the culture of “might is right” are aplenty that accentuate the causal and effects of electoral rights and eventually led to plutocratic atmosphere. With this view, such emerging electoral dimension, state of human rights or electoral rights should not be parted from the academic exercises. Electoral conflict and violence become tactics in political competition that generate plutocracy in lieu of representatives of the people. For the success of democracy, a free and fair election is pivotal, by the way, all the citizens should care of their rights which is very vital in the sense that if any electorates misused their rights influencing by various factors, the outcome or the representative to be governed the nation shall be infamous plutocrat, which is the consequent or reflection of abusing franchise. In such a critical juncture of India’s democracy this edited book draws your attention to quantify the state of human rights violation on the eve of elections in particular.
