The Parliamentary System by Arun Shourie
With 99 per sent of legislators getting elected by a minority of electors; with scores of them getting elected on 1520 per cent of the votes cast that is, by 710 per cent of the population , how representative is our parliamentary system not induce political parties to go on splintering our people? Can the country cohere when the people are splintered? Are those in government accountable to parliament? Or are they the government precisely because they, and those who control them, control Parliament?
