In July 1993, two Bills were moved in Parliament with the aim of delinking religion from politics. One of them seeks to amend the Constitution; the other seeks to amend the Representation of the People Act 1951. They seek to amplify provisions of the existing law. The various clauses were aimed at giving constitutional sanctions to a law banning certain political parties, and adding a disqualification for membership of legislatures. The second Bill pertains to registration of a political party with the Election Commission. The Bill does no more than provide for deregistration of parties by high courts, besides some changes in the law on registration.
