- “Politics of Jugaad: The Coalition Handbook”,a new book authored by journalist Saba Naqvi examines possibility of coalition government after 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
- In “Politics of Jugaad: The Coalition Handbook”, the political analyst runs through the history of political alliances in the country taking into account their performance on economic and social policies, among others, while juxtaposing them with that of single-party rule.
- Moreover, Naqvi also cites the example of resentment brewing within some nations in Europe, such as Spain, where the more prosperous parts are beginning to resent taking responsibility of the rest of the country.
- However, Naqvi, who has penned three other political books (In Good Faith (2012), Capital Conquest (2015), and Shades of Saffron (2018)) prior to this, is certain the UP, which sent the maximum BJP MPs to Parliament earlier in 2014, would remain crucial and have a major impact in the 2019 elections.
- The book has been written at the cusp of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls,held in April and May this year.
