Politicians don't debate but deliver speeches in rallies
Politicians have had debates, but they have rarely been fruitful. Well, we can safely say that politicians in India have never had a debate similar to that in the US. 
The last US presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney was phenomenal and it garnered the interest and excitement of the entire nation. This is because the discussion and debate had direct impact on the public.
The focus of the debate was on how Barack Obama and Mitt Romney would solve the problems that the country was facing at that time. In India, most politicians are not open to having discussions – they simply shout at each other and instead of addressing an issue objectively, they succumb to personal attacks.
In February 2014, news emerged that Tina Sharma, ex Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member had slapped the spokesperson of AAP, Ejas Khan, for misbehaving with the former during a live TV debate. According to Tina Sharma, Ejas Khan had called her ‘mentally ill’, ‘shameless’, and ‘cheap’. Politicians, and leaders of the nation, ought to talk with respect to others; they are role models for the nation and if they behave badly, the entire nation will follow in their footsteps.
So, it is not true that politicians don’t debate; politicians challenge one another for debates but in the midst of the debates, they lose their focus and start behaving in an uncivilized manner.
 Politicians in India do spend ample time delivering speeches in rallies. Speeches are easier than debates because speeches are mostly one-way communication, where the speaker is conveying his points to the public. 
On the other hand, debates require speakers to think on the spot and answer the questions posed by fellow debaters. This requires both analytical and communication skills, which most politicians in India lack. Hence, to garner votes, politicians seek the easy way out by delivering speeches in rallies.
Most politicians in India have been in love with their positions; they seek votes to sit on the Prime Minister’s chair or the President’s chair. We seldom come across politicians who are keen on making changes to the society or improving the lives of people. 
They do make promises on the surface to gain votes but fail to implement policies or welfare programs successfully for the people. Lately, we have been seeing Narendra Modi delivering speeches in front of large audiences, convincing people that he will develop India the same way that he developed Gujarat. 
Speeches can be made by anyone; in fact, the person who is delivering the speech may not be the one writing it. Many a times, speeches are written by officials working closely with the politicians and politicians simply deliver them. Therefore, some speeches do not seem genuine. 
In conclusion, we can safely say that politicians do participate in debates but whether debates are fruitful is an entirely different question. Debates will only be successful if politicians think objectively and not succumb to personal attacks. It is true that most politicians in India prefer to deliver speeches in rallies than debate because the former is easier than the latter.
