Which incident was regarded as a major test for democratic politics in our country after independence?

Answer :

A major test for democratic politics in our country after independence was the creation of linguistic States. In 1947, several old states had their boundaries restructured to create new states and these boundaries were drawn based on linguistics preferences. This was done to enable people speaking the same language to reside in one state. This incident is considered a major test because several national leaders feared that this would ultimately lead to a breakdown of democracy in India. But experience has shown that this has led to more unity in the country along with the easier administration.
