This is a discussion on the Nature of Indian Polity. The Constitution expressly describes India as a Union of States. It is not called a Unitary State. But the way it functions like a unitary state makes the States look like glorified municipalities. Indeed the Union exercises a lot of control over them. This distorts the working of the polity.
In the light of the above write a three hundred word note on this topic.
Note: only a summary discussion takes place in this blog. Real discussion will be in the seminars in the classroom. The entire group should draft the answer and blog it to me. No individual member of the blog can do it separately. However all the members of the group need not agree. A consolidated report not exceeding ten lines must be posted in the blog. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE MORE THAN 15 MINUTES TO ANSWER
NOTE: Only students of our institute can participate in the discussions. Outsiders are invited to enroll themselves and participate.
