Definition

A traitor, a Benedict Arnold, one with shifting loyalties.

Origin: "party" presumably means any affiliation, not necessarily political; "badalna" is "to change"; "badlu" therefore refers to one who changes.

Usage

"That bleddy Gupta, what a party badlu, he promised me over a Patiala peg that he would vote for me in the club elections for the Badminton Committee, but I found out from Harish he voted for Mrs. Deshpande instead! People just can't be trusted these days, I tell you!"
