Zilla Parishad elections in Maharashtra and the district political elite

Abstract:

The Constitution-making process in contemporary India continues via the establishment of Panchayati Raj in the Indian states. Panchayati Raj is, in part, the result of India's commitment to the principle that government should develop from the people and that the closer the government is to the people, the more efficient, effective, and responsive it will be. Further, the Gandhian tradition encourages the devolution of power, as well as a focus on village welfare major objectives of Panchayati Raj. These ideas, and others, are buttressed by the growing realize that a centrally administered economic development program imposes a severe burden on the meager material base provided by India's economy.
