    Default Indian Politics - A Family business

    At present parliament of India is full of relatives more than ever before. Fathers and sons, Mother and daughters , wives of the politicians , widows, uncles and nephews of the politicians . Has democracy in India become a monarchy ?

    A few years ago, when standards of behavior in the parliament of india were nose-diving – what with acrimony, physical demonstrations, un-parliamentary language and constant shrill bickering, a perpetual partisan divide and even occasional exchange of physical blows becoming the order of the day – former BJP prime minister Vajpayee wished that politics of india would live up to the age-old ideal of vasudeva kutumbikam (universe is a family ). In present scenario it seems that vajpayee's wish has come true, and at list Indian politics has become a family business or a family affairs.The biggest winner of the 2009 general elections was not the UPA but rather the dynasty in India.

    Over the years, many young faces from political families have entered the parliament with free ticket to Politics – Rahul Gandhi , Rajeev Gandhi , Priyanka Gandhi , Uddhav Theray , Raj Thakeray , Sameer Bhujbal, Nilesh Rane, Milind Deora, Priya Dutt, Varun Gandhi, Jyoti Mirdha, Deependra Hooda – to name a few.

    At present, 27 Members of parliament in Lok Sabha belong to political families proving my point that Indian politics has become a family affair, where parliamentary seats are heirlooms to be passed on. Grass root Leaders and young leaders with no patronage matter little, and given the huge money and muscle power involved in elections, non-family upstarts can only dream of power from the sidelines. All this has reduced politics of India to a kind of family business where merit is not valued and there are no opportunities for Common man.

    Politicians from rich family background don’t understand the problem of common man as they are habitual of sitting in ACs and they know only how to do business and Make money. With this mindset they earn lots more but never understand difference between Politics and Business i.e. Social Work Vs Work for Earnings.


    When i see present politicians of India i find most of them coming from or some way related to the prominent political families of India. Its make me think that whether the Indian politics has become such a family affair in India.

    What do you proud Indians think ? please comment.

    yes i think the indian politics is more of a family business because it is the name which is important. getting a name of already famed person makes the process easy for the person to get into politics. and politicians leave no chance to make their sons and daughters come into politics. some people try to get name of great personalities and come into politics just as sonia gandhi.

    yes i agree that politics has become more of a family business and it is continuing the same pattern from years together. it is so because if a person has a family background of politics, they find it easy to get crowds attraction. moreover their financial status is sound and so they can afford spending good money. this pattern should be changed by making some laws.

    Indian politics have now become a family business no matter the member of the family knows the strategies of the politics or not. since Gandhi times till the time of other prime ministers it has been seen that the politician children are taking over their seats and ruling the country. They have taken this as their family business that can fetch them huge amount without even doing anything for the nation. which is completely wrong.

    It is an undeniable fact that Indian politics is run by people whose families have political background. And ironically, these politicians are creating ways for letting their children into politics too which would reduce the scope of a non political background person to get into politics. This family business is going on because they make good bucks during their tenure and can easily spend some to get seats for their children. I think such a political paradigm is not healthy for India's future and it should be curbed at the earliest.

    Politics have become the business of the corrupted politicians these days. The daughter and the son of the politicians consider the politics as their family business and join it without any hassles. They believe that they are the heir of the family business and can play with the government and the sentiments of people. They need high brand clothes and handbags as well. This is the benefit of being born and bought-up in the political family.

    It has become a well known fact amongst the people after many cover stories were made on this issue. Government must realize that people are no longer under the darkness and ignorant of such facts. If this familial business of running Indian politics goes on, it would not be long enough where we would see India under the rule of dictators.

    Surely Indian Politics have turned out to be a family business. The politicians are more interested today in filling up their pockets rather than working for the development of the nation and because of this reason, they do not encourage any person to join politics today. It is nothing more than running a family business and passing it on generation after generation. A day will come when India will be ruled and not governed by these corrupt politicians.

    I agree that Indian politics have turned out to be a family business which is evident from Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi joining politics. There are other instances where it is seen that politics run in the family. It is like a family business where the politicians pass on their legacy to their children like any other family business.
