HI Your answer for the query is

 Elections in India are basically free and fair. The party that wins an election and forms government does so because people have chosen it over its rivals. This may not be true for every constituency. A few candidates may win purely on the basis of money power and unfair means. But the overall verdict of a general election still reflects popular preference.   This is what makes Indian elections democratic.

Election gives people to choose their representatives and thus they form the gvt. It is held in a free and fair manner.
