The challenge of dynastic succession is undoubtedly a major challenge for political parties in India. 

The following points explain this.

  • Usually, an ordinary worker does not rise to the top positions in a party because the functioning of most political parties is not transparent.
  • Most of the top leaders favour and choose members of their families. This is unfair to other members. 
  • The top positions are always controlled by members of one family. This is unhealthy for democracy. 
  • People who are at top levels usually do no have adequate experience, education or popular support. 
  • The challenge of dynastic succession is related to the challenge of lack of internal democracy. Non-deserving leaders exercise paramount power and make decisions. Those who disagree with the leadership find it difficult to continue in the party.
