What is the effect of various groups on the government?
Or
What kind of role is played by sectional interest groups?

Answer:

  • When different groups function actively, no single group can achieve dominance over society.
  • If one group brings pressure on the government to make policies in its favour, another will bring counter-pressure not to make policies in the way the first group desires.
  • The government gets to hear about what different sections of the population want.
  • This leads to a rough balance of power and accommodation of conflicting interests.
