"Consensus or majority for good governance ?"The Central Government is responsible for taking major decisions affecting the country. The successive Governments after the independence were never concerned about consensus when they have a convenient majority to get away with whatever they wanted to do. This is what is done by the two main political parties Congress and BJP. The present NDA Government is no exception to it.
In a democracy, the consensus among the political parties on various major decisions paves the way for the smooth running of administration and good governance. The parties whenever they have an absolute or sufficient majority are relying more upon their majority than consensus. In our country, none of the political parties ever got 50% of popular vote. Is it not the time for the political parties to realise that consensus is more important than a majority for the good of the country?
