Rajas of the mahajanapadas built forts for the following reasons:

In what way are present-day elections different from the ways in which rulers were chosen in janapadas?

Solution 5

Differences are:

  1. In present scenario, we have election commission conducting the elections, while during janapadas, there was no such thing. During those times, kings who performed by ashvamedha yagna were choosen to be the rulers.
  2. Now-a-days all the citizens of 18 years and above have the right to vote. In janapadas, only free men above the age of 30 were allowed to vote while, women and slaves were not allowed to vote.
