More the Merrier

The Telegraph, 22.02.2005

The inherent weaknesses in the Indian political system have been brought out vividly by Pratap Bhanu Mehta. Indian political parties possess no single ideology, they are unsure of what they really believe in and never seem to have specific policies or plans. The only thing they have in common is populism, and in toeing the populist line, they have often divided the Indians on the basis of caste, class or religion.

True, the diversity in India’s political parties has little to do with the real diversity of the country. A diverse society like the United States of America functions with two main political parties and so does the United Kingdom. But in India, all the political parties seem to be functioning with the sole objective of opposing the government in power, no matter what policies they adopt or implement. One wonders when the people will realize that they have been cheated for the past 58 years, and continue to be misled by the parties.
