With the Anti Defection law making it difficult for elected lawmakers to switch parties and create political crisis on and off,the new trend is that elected MLA'S and MP'S resign their seats and contest from the same seat but on a different party ticket.This has recently happened in Goa.
A politician who got elected on a Congress ticket ,resigned from his party and his seat...within 3 days of getting elected, thereby necessitating a bye poll in his constituency.
Now he is all set to contest again in the same constituency but either as a independent or supported by the ruling BJP.
This type of farce must stop in a democratic set up.Elected members must also think about the electorate before resigning.
The solution for this is:The resigning lawmaker should be barred from contesting from the same seat for the next 6 years.And all cost of holding such a bye election must be recovered from him/her .
