Power shared among the Central, State and local governments is called the Decentralization of government. It refers to the extension of federal principles and autonomous decision making. The basic idea behind decentralisation is to solve problems at the local level.
The State governments are required to share some powers and revenue with local government bodies. The nature of sharing however varies from state to state. Rural Local Government is popularly known as the Panchayati Raj. It consists of Zilla Parishad, Panchayat Samiti and Gram Panchayats.
There is a gram panchayat in each village or group of villages. It is a council of several ward members called panch and a president called Sarpanch. It works under the overall supervision of Gram Sabha.
When an elected member from a party shifts or changes his political party is known as defection.
