topic and it works well for Narendra Modi and Arvind Kejriwal Pejorative references to “family rule” produce good sound bites While leaders position themselves against it the ubiquity of family connections will survive this election Numerous “new faces” with family connections have been identified on candidate lists released by parties across India Elections are important moments in the process of the formation of an elite Nominations to contest the Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha elections are a chance to move ahead in the party There are many aspirants but tickets are few and distributed parsimoniously The decision-making process is invariably opaque but there is evidence anecdotal and otherwise that family connections help candidates get nominations Politicians with family connections in the Lok Sabha have attracted much attention The numbers alone are striking In 2011 Kanchan Chandra and Wamiq Umaira reported that 34 per cent of MPs in the 15th Lok Sabha were related to currently or previously active politicians The pattern has also been noted at the state level but not been analysed as much Along with C Manikandan of Pondicherry University I have done research on dynastic patterns at the state level in Tamil Nadu Examining these patterns could throw light on dynastic politics in the national legislature In 2009 the DMK put up a higher number of candidates with family connections for the Lok Sabha (28 per cent) than it did for the 2011 assembly election (20 per cent) It would be interesting to see if this applies elsewhere One factor explaining the divergence may be finance — political families usually find it easier than other candidates to bear the heavy cost of contesting a large constituency These costs especially in the face of certain defeat may encourage some sitting politicians to keep their hat out of the ring in 2014 However courageously fighting a losing battle may reflect well on a family reputation Closer examination of the careers of politicians with family connections reveals important variations The dominant image of dynastic politics is that of a business The younger generation is inducted to take the family concern forward The older generation is well placed to lobby for nominations for relatives and fund their first forays into electoral politics This image reflects the experience of many high-profile dynastic candidates and we characterise this as an actively managed career But not all candidates fit this pattern Some candidates have latent family connections that is a period of time has elapsed between the activity of an earlier generation and the entry of younger family members The influence of the family is not so direct in these cases and older relatives are unlikely to have kickstarted the careers of their descendants The gap in family activity may be as much as four decades The later generation has to work harder to catch the eye of the party leadership Sympathy successions are a third pattern fairly common in by-elections where the candidacy is passed to the surviving spouse or a promising son or daughter These nominations can say as much about the party as the new candidates A sympathy nomination reveals how a party views a family reputation as a valuable asset to be conserved These three categories are ideal types and they overlap For example a sympathy succession would advance the career of a young politician whose career was already being actively managed Yet each category draws attention to different facets of dynastic politics Active management emphasises the power and influence of well-established party heavyweights The activation of latent careers focuses on the agency of the rising generation Sympathy successions oblige us to think about how legislators build links with their constituency apart from reminding us that parties sustain dynastic politics Come mid-May we will know whether the Lok Sabha is a more or less dynastic legislature These elections will contribute to the gradual re-shaping of India’s political elite Some candidates will have been impoverished by the campaign and will be forced out of electoral politics So voters will help decide who are included in India’s political elite But winning a seat may not be decisive in the career of an ambitious politician Candidates from political families are less likely to suffer from this absolute veto With the resources to contest again they can press for another opportunity in the future The writer teaches Indian politics at the University

Play-off tie against Canada in Edmonton the Indian team will head to the indoor courts of University of Colombia New York for week-long preparation The team is scheduled to play the Canada fixture from September 15 2017 This is the first time that a camp has been organised for an away tie Captain Mahesh Bhupathi confirmed the development to PTI and also revealed team’s schedule “I wanted to get the boys together and practice indoors before the tie” Captain Mahesh Bhupathi told PTI The team will assemble in New York on September 4 before leaving for Edmonton on September 10 The All India Tennis Association (AITA) has approached the Sports Ministry for funds and the request is currently being assessed “There should not be any problem with that (financial assistance) because we do fund training of athletes including foreign training However a decision will be taken after examination of the proposal” a Sports Ministry official said Explaining the motive behind the camp in New York and not Edmonton Bhupathi said “Courts will not be ready till Sunday (September 10) before tie” This is the fourth straight year when India will be in the running for a place in the 16-nation World Group They lost to Spain in 2016 Czhech Republic in 2015 and Serbia in 2014 All these three attempts were at home and the last time they played an away World Group Play-off was against Japan in 2011 The team tasted a 1-4 defeat back then “It makes sense to have this camp since Canada is far away The players will be jet-lagged and would require a long recovery period To get the players acclimatised to the conditions it’s a positive step” India’s Davis Cup coach Zeeshan Ali said “It will be second week of US Open in New York when we will be training there so there is a good chance to get quality players to practice with other Indian players Only Rohan and Yuki Bhambri will be there (US Open) and others will have to travel to New York from Asian territory The more we practice the better for us” Zeeshan added After missing the Uzbekistan tie in Bangaluru in April this year Yuki Bhambri and Saketh Myneni will be back in the side The two have commenced their preparations and are playing on the Challenger circuit after recovering from injuries Coach Ali felt India have a good chance if World No 10 Milos Raonic does not turn up for the tie Raonic who lost to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon quarter-final this year is a quality player “We want to be ready if he does not play so this camp will help us prepare better” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App
