Identify the major changes in the party system during the second phase of independence?
Since independence, there was a single party rule in India. The Congress won the first three general elections until the period ending in 1997. But after the period following the emergency, the following major changes took place in the party system:
1. The single-party rule came to an end, and the multi-party system emerged.
2. Several regional parties came to the forefront with increased awareness and full of competitive spirit. Thus national parties could not come to power without their support.
3. India witnessed the era of coalition party system from 1977 onwards.
Hence the single-party rule came to an end, and the other parties began to assert their importance in the formation of the government.
