A numerical majority in the elections only gives a political party the right to form a "stable" government and not a "majoritarian" one, former President Pranab Mukherjee said in the backdrop of raging protests against the amended Citizenship Act today. "A numerical majority in elections gives you the right to make a stable government. The lack of popular majority forbids you from (becoming) a majoritarian government. That is the message and essence of our parliamentary democracy," he said in his address during the second Atal Bihari Vajpayee Memorial Lecture at New Delhi's India Foundation.
