Udupi, 8 May 2010: The eagerly awaited gram panchayat elections in the Karnataka state in general and Udupi district in particular have already started. This election is quite important as it sets in motion the grass root democratic process in which the villagers choose their representatives in the basic administrative set up of their villages. The local developmental issues   take the front seat while the voters cast their votes in choosing the right type of candidates whom they know very well. Though the political parties do not field their candidates as members of their respective parties, the affiliation of the candidates to these political parties is obvious.
