How should parties deal with leaders who threaten to change sides

Many recent examples have shown that political leaders are no longer hesitant to threaten their party for their personal desires and parties have treated this issue with various ways ranging from catering to their desires to ousting them from the party. This situation is aghast especially in world’s largest democracy.

Most of the these defectors are turning out to be from Congress and in most of the cases, they are going to the BJP camp. This is not a good indication for Congress as it suggests that it has become rudderless and lacks convincing strategy to move forward.

But the matter of the fact here is, if changing parties has become as easy as changing shoes; and it has, from the recent happenings, then both the parties do not stand for their doctrine that they claim to have as values are those which are not promulgated, but followed.
