Solution:The principle of the Universal Adult Franchise helped in combating casteism. All Indian citizens who are at least 18 years old have the right to vote in elections for members of the Parliament and state legislatures under the universal adult franchise. They have this right without regard to their caste, creed, colour, sex, religion, or philosophical beliefs. Political leaders have been forced to prepare for the challenge of mobilising and obtaining political support through the universal adult franchise and the one-person, one-vote concept. Additionally, it helped those from lower castes who had previously been considered poor and inferior develop new levels of consciousness. Therefore, the Universal Adult Franchise plays an important role in preventing casteism.
