DYNASTY NOW A MAINSTAY ACROSS INDIAN POLITICAL SPECTRUM

FROM CONGRESS TO BJP, NCP TO SHIV SENA, IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY
Author: Harihar Swarup - Published 04-01-2020 11:49 GMT-0000
Among the political parties the Congress is most maligned for being a dynastic organization. But now almost all political parties have been affected by this menace except the Left parties. Look at Maharashtra: Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s recent expansion of his Council of Ministers exemplifies how deep-rooted dynastic politics is in the country. As many as 19 of the 43 ministers hail from political families, cutting across the three coalition partners in Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi. From Uddhav’s son Aaditya Thackeray getting a cabinet berth to Ajit Pawar, nephew of NCP chief Sharad Pawar, dynasts are everywhere one looks. In fact, even those who are unhappy about not getting a ministerial berth—like Bhor Congress MLA Sangram Thopte, son of former chief minister Anantrao Thopte, whose supporters attacked the party office in Pune—are also dynasts.
