Time has come to take cognizance of anti-defection law, says Congress MP Manish Tewari

Manish Tewari, a Congress Lok Sabha MP, stated on Monday that the time has come to implement the anti-defection law, which is incorporated in the 10th schedule of the Indian Constitution, and that this law has been unable to achieve its goal due to an increase in defections in recent years.

“Time has come to take cognizance of the anti-defection law which is enshrined in the 10th schedule. Incidents that have happened in the previous years suggest that this law is failing to achieve its objectives. It has created a negative impact on the parliamentary system,” Manish Tewari said while addressing Lok Sabha on the first day of the special session of Parliament.
