In the present days of political crisis the burning issues much discussed and debated by political thinkers, policy planners, social scientists and civil activists are directly and indirectly related to the coalition Governments at the Centre in India. Hence it is significant to know the pros and cons of coalition Governments in India. This book examines the different dimensions of coalition Governments in India in particular and global in general. It is an outcome of research work done by the scholar. This book covers the widely discussed political crisis existing in Indian political scenario of present days. Hence, the present system of politics is called as ‘era of coalition governments’. It was one of the prime features of parliamentary form of government in India. The system of coalition government has become a path of success for democracy in India. It is also a good remedy for political crisis prevailing in parliamentary system. Coalition politics is an inevitable method of forming the government during political instability in Indian democracy. The present book discusses about problems and prospects of coalition governments in the Country.
Nowadays coalition government was widely exercised and executed at the Centre as well as at the States when not a single party could get the majority in general elections. Therefore, coalition politics was accepted by all and formed the coalition governments at all levels. This system also affects the socio-political life of people of Indian society. Hence, it was a harbinger of society and panacea for all political crises prevailing in Indian democracy. It has become the way of life for majority of people living in India. It’s hoped that this political pluralism and political integration amply meets the needs of readers who are interested in the study of coalition governments. This book is illustrated not only with suitable suggestions for best possible solutions of the coalition crisis but also for sustainability of coalition governments in India. I hope this book will be very useful to mentors, social scientists, social activists and policy makers. Present book fills the gap between both preaching of coalition principles and practice of coalition politics.
