Its a good question and I endorse Sarmilas view .But I have another aspect to look at it. There was time when dacoits, pirates, looters . Exploited situation and declare themselves kings and ultimately formed dynasty. In our case at the end of over 1200 years of slavery when the fruits of the scarifies of freedom fighters were achieved, the leaders hijacked the ideology of their parties to use in their favour to win votes and become kings/nawabs by exploiting the same people who has made them leader. They then employed muscle & money power, crookedness, wild appeasement (was subsidies necessary on LPG cylinder when it was then used mostly by affordable people only) to form dynasty. Seeing this, their muscle men too joined the fray and many of them are now kings /nawabs.( I mean minister and MP/MLA) This country has no shortage of good, capable and honest patriots who want to serve people by joineing politics but they are shadowed by this system of use of black money ,muscle men, ...more

No.
due to multiplicity of views they can co-exist.
they will align themselves to form an alliance.
and a small party can break the alliance if found wanting.

No. Parliamentary system is all about people electing someone to represent them in the government. If the candidates form some groups or idelogical platforms or parties, it does not matter as far as the founding fathers of our constitution were concerned. So how can you ban any party system when our consititution does not even mention parties?
In democracy, people have a right to put forward their views and ideology. For this, a platform is necessary in the form of a party. Snce we are such a huge country with such diverse (and sometimes contratictory) religions, idelogies, ethinicities, languages, cultures, etc it is natural that there woul be so many Parties. Just two parties will fail to give representation to so much diversity. Then people will be forced to find some other means to achieve their asperations.

A multi-party system is not a bad thing conceptually. The power of governance goes to a single party or a coalition of political parties selected by the enfranchised constituents reflecting the true character of representative democracy. This system is against the rule of autocracy or aristocracy. The individual winning candidates win vote of the plurality which means a winning candidate has to win more votes than any other candidate in the race, but does not necessarily require a majority of the votes cast. Though it is a fractured mandate but is a true reflection of the people's mind as can derived by a practicable mechanism. It is result of a liberal democracy where the absolute political liberty of individuals are respected. The power of representatives in a liberal democracy is curtailed by a constitution of the country . Multiparty system if managed well also helps to avoid conflicts, because other political forces can have the hope that they can also come to power to implement t ...more
