As long as we like democracy we have to spend , We need to curtail expenses and it is possible only when government and the election commissioners are strong and effective.
May I suggest some preventive steps to ensure free and fair election?

There should be complete prohibition in the country after the announcement of election till its declaration of result. Would it not help in minimizing crime during the election?

Distribution of any material, gifts, cash or even farm products among voters during campaign or otherwise should be banned and if any candidate found to be indulged in such activities directly or through his supporters, his candidature must be cancelled spontaneously.

Why does a good candidate need support of India fame political leader or a film actor or a few singer or dancer to win the election? Why not these rallys should be banned?

None of person outside the state or even outside the constituency should be allowed to file nomination in the election. None ...more
