The Vice-president of India has to play his significant role in our country. He should be well respected and disciplined dignitary. Our both the candidates contesting for the Vice-presidential election are equally respected and disciplined personalities. M. Venkaiah Nedu has the background of being the son of an Indian former and senior cabinet minister in NDA government. Gopalkrishan Gandhi is grandson of the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi. He also held many prestigious positions previously in previous governments and is compassionately accepted leader and candidate of Opposition. Contesting of the elections is the beauty of the democracy and India has the proud of it. Our all governments in India are framed with the consensus of the people by holding of the elections. Unfortunately, our neighboring country Pakistan does not have the democracy. In the seven decades of the Independence there have either been the rules of the Army Generals or of the ‘Aya Ram-Gaya Ram’ prime ministers. Pakistan government’s policy is only to nurture and export terrorists. People of Pakistan want peace and development tracking on the path of the democratic nations like that of India. Pakistan must shun the path of violence and bloodshed and start tracking on the road to the peace and developments. It should also start cherishing human values that it is not doing so far and let also to prevail, the democracy there.
