Explain how dynastic succession is a major challenge for political parties in India.
Dynastic succession is a major challenge for political parties in India as it prevents the rise of fresh talent to the top. It also discourages talented people who have no political lineage from participating in politics. It acts as a disincentive for the grassroots political activists who cannot aspire to high offices. It fosters a culture of sycophancy, breeds inefficiency and mediocrity and is detrimental to inner-party democracy. In the long run, it is corrosive to democratic structures as it promotes nepotism.
