In this paper I will be critically analyzing the concept of anti-defection laws. In the analysis paper will be dealing how the concept of anti-defection laws was introduced to the Indian Legal System, how it impacts the very basic tenants of the democratic step up. This system was brought to with the intent to stabilize the Indian Political System. Over a period of time the objects of this act are being molded to suppress the basic tenants of the democracy. This act in the present days is being misused by the political parties to suppress the voice of their own elected representatives. So paper will try to ignite some idea so that the democratic institutions can be protected.
