Dirty Indian Politics

Politics of India takes place in a framework of a federal parliamentary multi-party representative democratic republic modeled after the British Westminster System. The Prime Minister of India is the head of government, while the President of India is the formal head of state and holds substantial reserve powers, placing him or her in approximately the same position as the British monarch. Executive power is exercised by the government. Federal legislative power is vested in both the government and the two chambers of the Parliament of India. The judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature.
According to its constitution, India is a "sovereign socialist secular democratic republic." India is the largest state by population with a democratically-elected government. Like the United States, India has a federal form of government, however, the central government in India has greater power in relation to its states, and its central government is patterned after the British parliamentary system. Regarding the former, "the Centre", the national government, can and has dismissed state governments if no majority party or coalition is able to form a government or under specific Constitutional clauses, and can impose direct federal rule known as President's rule. Locally, the Panchayati Raj system has several administrative functions.


  1. The originators of dirty politics in India are of course the original political party, the Congress Party of India. Their elevation of the Nehru-Gandhi family to the status of royalty, or first family of India, makes a mockery of India's pretensions at being a Republic.

  4. I sincerely appreciate Sanjay ji for his kind endeavour for extracting his precious time for writing such a brilliant and informative blog about this blame game politics of Indian democracy which we all had never thought in our dreams. However, this forces us to think again and again that how the idea of national freedom movement had turned into a chaotic situation where every individual is losing their faith and temper on these leaders as we have at the time of Indian freedom movement and it is simply not healthy for the future of Indian politics. and that the only reason that violence and regular slapping cases has raised so frequently.
