The only goal of dynasty-run political parties like the Congress party and other regional political parties is to grab power by hook or crook and then misuse power to benefit their own family members.
The Bharatiya Janata Party is not at all affected by these ideology-less political parties, but the nation is losing and our democracy is under threat due to these dynasty -based political parties. For the Bharatiya Janata Party nation is the topmost priority. For a healthy democracy our nation needs healthy democratic parties.
Barring the Bharatiya Janata Party almost all political parties are affected by the problem of dynasty politics and nepotism. These parties have no aim, no vision. These parties have no vision of growth and development, they have no policy or ideology. Since they have no ideology or principles, that is why their programmes are directionless.
Our Constitution clearly states that one cannot discriminate on the basis of birth which is unconstitutional and illegal. But in these dynasty-run political parties only the son or daughter of the family running the party becomes president. This autocratic system is a big threat to Indian democracy. The Indian National Congress party is no longer Indian nor is it nationalist. From the very beginning it was a party of one family and now it has been reduced to a brother-sister party.
Salient points of the speech given by bjp National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda at the “threat to democracy by dynasty based political parties” seminar in New Delhi on 19 May, 2022
During the Emergency era of 1975 and the then Congress party President announced that “India is Indira and Indira is India”, which is a clear proof that the soul of the Congress party died long back. It is no longer a live and democratic party. Dynasty-run political parties play the politics of appeasement of vote banks and run programmes for them which are against the country and society. During its rule in the past 60 years the Congress party always put ‘family’ matters first by completely ignoring and sidelining issues of development of states and of regional aspirations.
The Bharatiya Janata Party believes that the Centre should be strong and the regional aspirations should also be acknowledged and respected, and that states should play an important role in meeting the national goals. It is the policies of the Congress party which led to spurt of regional and state specific political outfits.
To come to power the dynasty ran political parties bank upon politics of casteism and religion besides politics of polarisation.
There is no need to worry about dynasty- run political parties because the vote bank of such parties shrinks very fast. It is only political parties which stick to its ideology and principles survive in the long run. Ultimately all dynasty run political parties will cease to exist and the Bharatiya Janata Party will continue to survive and win hearts of the people of the country.
It is only in the Bharatiya Janata Party that Shri Narendra Modi ji, who comes from a very humble background and middle class family, becomes the Prime Minister of our country and a person like me who belongs to a very ordinary family becomes the President of the world’s largest political organization. This showcases the strength of internal democracy that thrives in the Bharatiya Janata Party.
The Bharatiya Janata Party has always stood firmly on its ideology and principles. The BJP is an ideology based party and it will always continue to grow. The Bharatiya Janata Party has never compromised on its ideology and principles even in its toughest phase.
