  • In the intro, briefly mention the importance of constitutional morality.
  • In the body, discuss how India democracy is based on the idea of checks and balances and a majority in the Parliament is restrained through various institutions. Next, mention how the majority has to abide by the principles and ideals enshrined in the Constitution i.e. by adhering to the constitutional morality. Apart from that, public morality also guides the conduct of the elected representatives in policy formation and legislative business. Hence both constitutional morality, as well as public morality, guides the elected majority. In the next part, mention the instances in which the majority acting in violation of these morality harms democracy.
  • Conclude by mentioning the importance of morality in democracy.
