Politics of Jugaad examines the history of coalition governments to project the possibilities of one, as the countdown to the 2019 Lok Sabha election begins. It asks whether coalitions are an inevitability we have to live with, especially since coalitions have been unstable, and whether they also hold out the promise of greater democratization in a nation as diverse as ours. It analyses the possibilities of the formation of coalitions in various states and their chances of success and failure, leading up to the question: Can a few regional parties potentially tip the scales and defeat the Modi-led BJP? In this most authoritative volume, Saba Naqvi strikes the perfect balance between precise argument and fresh prose, minutely discussing what could be the direction, politics and policy of India’s next coalition government. It is essential reading for anyone interested in the nature of transformation in Indian political parties and their role in contemporary times.
