The ideology of numbers
Effective "coalition" must result in effective power-sharing and distribution of assets. You cannot have the same party at the Centre and in the states without there being a confrontation at some stage. No coalition in the past has ever been threatened by numbers. It has survived or perished on the principle of power-sharing or the lack of it, says ARUN NEHRU
