Shiv Sena in Maharashtra; NCP of Maharashtra; the DMK in Tamil Nadu; the TDP of Andhra Pradesh; the BJD in Orissa; and the SP in UP So why do dynastic parties choose leaders from a particular family The simple answer is that there is nothing to stop these leaders from selecting their successors If a party has a party organisation where other contenders to the chief post can form their independent bases of power or lobby groups within the partyit may be harder to sustain dynastic parties This was the case with the Congress in the 1960s when a strong organisation could discipline the ruling Congress party The CPMa non-dynastic partyhas a massive cadre-based organisation Secondif a party has strong ties to a civil society organisation that constrains the party leader from appointing kin as successorthe party will be non-dynastic The classic case is the BJP The RSS (in which the BJP is societally rooted) exercises enough influence over the choice of leadership to ensure that it is non-dynastic Thirdand most importantis party finance As long as politicians raise their own campaign finances illegallytheir best insurance against disclosure is to keep the money in the family If all politicians in India raised funds independently and openly (as they do in the United States) individual politicians could challenge the party leadership In India this independence is discouraged and substantial campaign contributions are undisclosed or black and collected centrally This centralisation of finances is essential to avoid detection As many have observedthe bulk of the money for the 2009 election campaigns of various parties was allocated to Lok Sabha hopefuls by the central command This gives the central party enormous control and the party leader is influenced by incentives that encourage keeping it all in the family Our research shows that political dynasties are found where they provide risk insurance for politicians Even in stable political systems like Japandynasties are common As Fukui and Fukui observein the 1990 general elections170 second-generation members ran for election to the Diet and 125 were elected They attribute this to the electoral rules that led candidates to develop highly individualistic campaign organisations built by and for particular Diet members and aspirants and that since these organisations are expensive to buildin terms of both money and effort investedthese organisations are valuable assets that are closely guarded by the incumbents andupon their retirement or deathoften passed on to their heirsusually relatives or staffers?Nicaragua,to an adversary like China or Pakistan, Such a strategy is not entirely irrational, Section 144 has been imposed in parts of NCR and security measures are being put in place in the capital to avoid a law and order situation.
