For the last two decades, we have seen the country throwing up factored mandate which led to the country having coalition governments. This has led to a lot of political uncertainties as well as policy paralysis with one or the other ally threatening to quit and stalling policy making. The anti defection law was made to prevent defections commonly known as horse trading. Can we have laws governing political alliances as coalition governments are here to stay? If there is any pre poll alliance, then no alliance partner can break away. To break away, all it's MPs, MLAs should resign and seek a fresh mandate. If there is no pre poll alliance and some party agrees to support a government then that party will not be entitled to any ministerial positions and will only support the government from outside. A lot f blackmailing can stop with something like this.
