Gods must be democratic

Saw snippets of a major national leader filing nominations paper from respective constituency. As part of coverage, snippets of a traditional yagna being performed, obviously to garner blessings of the gods above.

Sort of ambiguous, would you not say, seeking divine intervention what in principle is meant to be a free and unfettered people process?

Curious to see rituals from two different times and settings, being mixed up like this.
Gods must be democratic; for how else can one explain conducting a yagna and invoking them for victory in elections?
