  1. Regarding the hollowing out of Parliament and State legislatures, I am surprised M.R. Madhavan did not mention the elephant in the room. The anti defection law.

    The purpose of a Parliamentary debate is to convince individual representatives on how to vote on legislation. But the anti defection law takes away the right of representatives to vote according to their own consciences. We effectively have a party boss rule system, and legislatures are merely for showmanship, not actual deliberation.
