Essay Question - 03 August 2017 - GS Paper IV

The issue of NOTA came into focus once more when the Congress objected to the Election Commission's decision to make it a feature even in Rajya Sabha elections. The Congress stated some technicalities regarding proportional representation etc., but the Supreme Court refused to grant a stay. Whatever be the merits of the case, if the reports of the ADR (Association of Democratic Reforms - read more here) considered, the horrible scale of criminalisation of politics cannot be done away with merely with tinkering with NOTA or similar aspects. A wholesale reform is needed. The govt. did propose the electoral bonds in the budget 2017, but critics have derided that too.

Now, please write in 150 to 500 words on this topic -

NOTA or no NOTA, unless politicians decide, decriminalisation of politics won't happen.

नोटा हो या न हो, जबतक हमारे राजनेता तय नहीं कर लेते, राजनीति का गैर-अपराधीकरण होना असंभव होगा
