Abstract

The role of the State in social transformation in India has got undermined, 'development' has led to a striking dualism of the social order, and 'democracy' has become the playground for growing corruption, criminalisation, repression and intimidation for large masses of the people whose very survival is made to depend on their staying out of the political process and whose desperate economic state incapacitates them from entering the regular economic process as well. This is the larger context in which this paper discusses people's movements and 'grassroots' politics and, as part thereof, the phenomenon of non-party political formations.
