ABSTRACT

Political defection has long been a serious malaise in our democratic politics. They have made a mockery of democracy. The politics of defection is the manifestation of the general degeneration of political life in our country. No single political party can be blamed for this as this has become part of the newly emerging political culture of India. Political defection is motivated by the unscrupulous quest for power and material gains. Even after the passing of Anti-Defection Law in 1985, defection for power and self have continued. The menace of political defection has corrupted and ruined political life in our country and has posed a great danger to every system of our parliamentary democracy.
