SECTION - C

(Long Answer Questions)

Question : What are the various challenges faced by Political Parties?
OR
State the various functions which political parties perform in a democracy?
Answer : In any democracy, political parties are very much necessary because they are working for democracy.
Political parties are actual face of democracy that what is going on in democracy. All in all they are very much necessary for democracy but these days there is a dissatisfaction among the people regarding the functioning of political parties. They have to face a lot of criticism from various quarters of society. That is why political parties need to face many challenges to remain effective and these challenges are :
(i) Lack of internal democracy : It is right that democracy goes on with the help of political parties but there is lack of internal democracy within the party.
Generally the power within the party is concentrated within the hands of one or two leaders. Even they do not conduct regular elections of office bearers and they do not keep membership registers. Ordinary members are unable to get any information of inside matters of the party and members are generally dissatisfied with central leadership.
(ii) Dynastic succession : The biggest challenge which political parties are facing these days is the issue of dynastic succession. These parties do not have the transparent functioning and that is why the leaders always try to give unfair advantage to their family members especially wife or son. Political party then is controlled by one family. We can take the examples of Congress, SAD, RJD, INLD, National Conference, DMK, etc.
(iii) Money and Muscle power : Another challenge which political parties are facing is the increased role of money and muscle power especially at the time of elections. Parties, these days, try to nominate that person as their candidate who is either rich or has sufficient muscle power behind him. That is why, in some cases, criminals are being given tickets of national parties. Parties try to win majority in elections and that is why they use this type of way to win majority.
(iv) Lack of meaningful choice : Political parties generally discuss that problem which the country is facing and their policy to resolve that problem. They always try to convince the general masses that their policies are better than the other parties. But most of the parties agree on the fact that which problems are being faced by the country. Difference is only of priority of issue. All the political parties are same in one way or the other and that is why people don’t have any meaningful choice among them.
OR
A political party is a group of people who have “the same ideology and who come closer to each other so that they can contest the elections and win over the majority to make the government. All the members of a political party agree on some policies for the welfare of the society. Political parties in democracy do a lot of functions which are given below :
(i) Political parties contest elections : Political, parties, in most of the democracies, contest the elections by ‘putting up their candidates in political arena. They select their candidates in one way or the other but in our country central leadership selects them on one basis or the other.
(ii) Put forward· policies and programmes : Political parties make some policies ·and programmes for the welfare of the people and voters choose those parties whose policies they like the most. In democracy people have different opinions but they are grouped together to provide one direction in, which policies could be formulated by the government.
(iii) Making Laws : Political parties, who are in power, make laws for the country. Actually laws are made by legislature but the party which is in power gets directions on that issue from central leadership to make any particular law.
(iv) Political parties make and run the government :
Party which wins the majority gets the chance to make the government. It makes the government and runs the government according to the policies and ideology of the party.
(v) Play role of opposition : All parties cannot make the government. Those parties who are unable to make the government perform the role of opposition and try to raise and highlight vital issues. They often highlight those issues on which government seems to have failed.
(vi) Making public opinion : Political parties raise those issues in public which government is unable to handle. Thus they make a public opinion in their favour and against the government. Parties even launch movements to highlight the problems of the people.
(vii) Provides access to government machinery :
Public in general don’t have access to government machinery but parties provide access to government machinery to general public. General public can easily approach any leader instead of an officer. They also are responsive to the needs of the people. These parties cannot ignore the demands of the public and that is why they are more responsive.


Question : How can the benefits of globalisation be shared better? Explain.
OR
What are demand deposits? Explain any three features of it?
Answer : The benefits of Globalisation can be shared better in the following ways :
(i) The government policy must protect the interest, not only of the rich and the powerful, but of all the people in the country.
(ii) The government can ensure that labour laws are implemented and workers get their rights.
(iii) It can support small producers to improve their performance till they becomes strong enough to compete.
(iv) It can use trade and investment barriers judiciously.
(v) It can negotiate at the WTO for ‘fairer rules’.
OR
People save their money in banks by opening an account. The deposits in the bank accounts can be withdrawn on demand, so these deposits are called demand deposits.
(i) Banks accept the deposits and also pay an interest on the deposits. In this way people’s money is safe with the banks and it earns interest.
(ii) The facility of cheques against demand deposits makes it possible to directly settle payments without the use of cash. Since, demand deposits, can be used as a means of payment, along with currency, they constitute money in the modern economy.
(iii) The depositor can withdraw the money as and when he/she needs the money.
