How has India’s anti-defection law undermined democracy in the country? How do we tackle endless horse-trading of elected representatives in India? The Anti-Defection Law stifles intra-party democracy and dissent, and is also undermining the stability of elected governments. How do we fix a solution that has grown bigger than the problem?

Alok Prasanna Kumar returns to Episode 105 of The Pragati Podcast helps us understand this constitutional crisis, and a big political challenge for Karnataka in particular, as well. The Pragati Podcast is a weekly talkshow on public policy, economics and international relations hosted by Pavan Srinath.

Alok Prasanna Kumar is a Senior Resident Fellow at the Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy, a former Supreme Court lawyer and co-host of Ganatantra Podcast.
