The “Politics of Jugaad: The Coalition Handbook” new book authored by journalist Saba Naqvi examines possibility of coalition government after 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
It examines coalition government history in India to project possibility at the end of 2019 Lok Sabha election. It questions whether ‘coalitions’ are inevitable even when they have been proved unstable, or whether they hold promise of greater democratization in our diverse nation. It also analyses possibilities of coalition formation in different states and their chances of success and failure.
It strikes perfect balance between argument and prose, and discusses possible direction in politics and policy of India’s next coalition government. It also elaborates nature of transformation in Indian political parties and their role in contemporary times.
Saba Naqvi is one of India’s renowned journalists, best known author and political analyst. Other books written by her include In Good Faith (2012), Capital Conquest (2015), and Shades of Saffron (2018).
