Democracy is often referred to as being a accountable, responsive and legitimate form of government. According to professor Jason Barabas, democratic responsiveness measures the degree to which governmental policies match public preferences. For example, during the rule of UPA, the Ministry of Environment, under pressure from the United Nations, some NGOs and several environmental protection groups, passed several legislations to regulate the process of industrialisation while at the same time protecting the environment.
