India has a democratic system. The first general election in 1952 was a great democratic experiment. Since then continuous progress is being made in this direction. With the decline of Congress’s dominance, the degree of mass participation increased rapidly. The role of regional parties emerged. That is why the era of coalition governments has come.

The Janata Dal and the Bharatiya Janata Party flourished remarkably in the non-Congress governments. In 1996, first BJP’s Vajpayee got the opportunity to form a coalition government, then Janata Dal’s Deve Gowda and after him, Gujral formed the cabinet, but after a gap of about two years, Vajpayee’s government was again formed.

In the 2004 elections, there was a surprising improvement in the position of Congress. The Janata Dal disintegrated, but the BJP retained its organized form. Congress emerged as the single largest party, hence it got the opportunity to form the government. Now Manmohan Singh has formed a coalition government.

The formation of coalition governments cannot be based on ideology. Therefore, all coalition governments were formed on the formula of experimentalism or opportunism. It is another matter that sometimes anti-Congress and sometimes anti-BJP tendencies continued to play their dominant role.

The formation of coalition governments and their way of working have distorted the established traditions of the parliamentary system. But the emergence of such distortions is natural because the country does not have a well-established two-party system, like the UK. And no party can establish the hegemonic position which Congress had during the time of Nehru or Indira Gandhi. 6. The first coalition government at the Center was formed in the year 1977 by the Janata Party.

The coalition government of Janata Dal (United) and Bharatiya Janata Party is working in the state of Bihar. The coalition government is being headed by Nitish Kumar who is a prominent leader of the Janata Dal (United).

The Janata Dal (United) won the maximum number of seats in the 2010 Bihar Legislative Assembly elections. 9. Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sushil Kumar Modi is the Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar.
