1: A perceptible decline in political culture is getting reflected in the eroding credibility of the constitutional institutions. Attempts to safeguard politically vested interests have led to politicization of these institutions. The increasing political interference in the functioning of these institutions and presence of pliable officials have led to a situation that people are fast loosing their faith in the Democratic system.
