Coalition Politics: The Indian Experience

B.S. Tyagi (Author)
Synopsis Truly speaking, political parties-both regional and national are not cut well for coalition politics. They have utterly failed to adapt themselves to new challenges cropped up at the collpapse of one party rule. We have seen conglomeration rather than coalition. Consequently what has been to the fore, is sheer lust for power and governance is put on hold. Any issue of national interest is lost in the uproar of the outrageous legislators. Parties have behaved arrogantly, and not as responsible allies. Their parochialism is damaged and is damaging the very fabric of coalition. The present book presents a brief history of coalition politics in India along with its basic concept which makes the system dynamically functional. It has discussed the grammar and manner of formation and fall of coalitions. It has surveyed ideas and ideologies of various parties which ganged up every time to grab the power and came a cropper when the question of national interest arose. Chameleon character of political players displayed on different occasions has also been recorded. This study has exposed those who boasted of being honest, democrat, secular and socialist or well-wishers of the common man. It has assessed the performance of two coalitions-the NDA and the UPA, to sum up the experience of the electorate. Simultaneously, an humble effort has been made to focus the attention of the intellectuals and political scientists on the malignant malady which the present system is suffering from, by raising questions which have been pricking national conscience: Is there democracy in India by any of its definitions? Can we have corruption and criminal free politics? Are people losing faith in the system itself? And so on. Hence, it makes a thought provoking reading.
