In a democracy, the elected government, are abide to make policies for the betterment of the people of the state, it is also the duty of the government to make sure that the policies are implemented on grounds, and people are benefitted by it.
How a democracy works
People elect their representative, through a fair and unbiased voting process. The elected representative then decides, who among them will be the head of state and a government is formed. The elected government then looks after the economic and social affairs of the state, it is the responsibilities of the government, to maintain law and order in the state. The government does all this with help of the bureaucrats and different constitutional authorities.
The judiciary- The guarding body of the constitution
The judiciary is an autonomous constitutional body, which is another important part of the democracy, it is the duty of the judiciary to make sure, that the justice is provided to the people. Judiciary also keeps a check on the government, intervening from time to time, that the policies by the government are implemented properly. Judiciary can even strike down certain government policies, if it finds out, that the policy is unjust to any person of the state.
The Government officials
As I mentioned before the government duties are not only limited to making policies for the betterment of the people but also to make sure that these policies are implemented honestly. The bureaucrats and the government officials helped the government to look after the implementation of the policies on the ground level. So, the bureaucrats and officials are actually the ones, who are in direct contact with people of the state. This makes it really important for these officials to be honest in their work, as they are one who gets the funds to implement a particular policy, if they are honest, they will make sure that the funds are spent in a proper and lawful manner.
Non-Government Organizations (N.G.O)
N.G.O is another body which looks after the implementation of the government policies, but as their name suggests, they are not authorized to the government. These organizations are formed by some well-informed citizens, with an agenda, to make sure that the people are benefitted by the government policies and everyone in the government are actually doing their work with utmost responsibility.
A well-informed citizen
A well-informed citizen is equal to a government official, it lacks in the official power, but the constitution has given them enough power to bring a change. If a citizen thinks his/her duty is only limited to voting, he is absolutely and is completely ignoring the fact, he is very much part of this system, and without their contribution, this system is not going to work for its betterment.
The government makes policies for the betterment of the society, but in the end, these policies are just political gimmicks, with no proper implementation and the only works that actually happen are on the paper. It is the duty of every citizen to raise appropriate questions whenever such a thing happens and enforce the government to work honestly on it.
