Jasdeep Singh Jassee, an esteemed Indian-American leader, has lauded the recently concluded elections in India for showcasing the resilience and vibrancy of its democracy. Speaking to PTI, Jassee emphasized how these elections have highlighted the robustness of India's electoral process, sending a powerful message to the global community.

In the face of scepticism from Western media regarding the integrity of India's democratic mechanisms, the electoral outcomes have decisively put those doubts to rest. According to Jassee, allegations of a compromised Election Commission and malfunctioning voting machines were proven baseless, thus reinforcing the legitimacy and fairness of the process.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is poised to take the oath for a third consecutive term—an occurrence not seen in over six decades. Singh asserted that India's latest electoral exercise has not only matured the nation's democracy but also dispelled allegations of human rights violations, showcasing the inclusiveness of the democratic framework.
