Which three challenges do you feel are being faced by political parties in India? Give your opinion.

Answer:
The three challenges faced by Political parties in India are:

Lack of internal democracy.

  • All over the world, there is a tendency of political parties towards the concentration of power in one or few leaders at the top.
  • Parties do not keep membership register.
  • They do not conduct internal elections regularly.
  • Ordinary members of the party do not have sufficient information as to what happens inside the party.

No Transparency.

  • Since most political parties do not practice open and transparent procedures for their functioning, these are very few ways for an ordinary worker to rise to the top in a party.
  • Those who happen to be the leaders are in a position of unfair advantage to famous people close to them or even their family member.
  • In many parties, the top positions are always controlled by members of one family.

Money and Muscle Power

  • Since parties are focussed only on winning elections, they tend to use short cuts to win elections.
  • They tend to nominate those candidates who have or can raise a lot of money.
  • Rich people and companies who give funds to the parties tend to have influence on the policies and decisions of the party.
