authority after Seshanthings began to improve and we successfully established a goodwell-functioning electoral system While the first phase of democracy was strengthened by a strong electoral system that ensured independent and transparent electionswe have failed to deliver in the second phase of democratic reform Our political parties have become more autocratic and family interests took precedence over the larger political interests Like an inexperienced doctor who administers medicine which treats an illness but causes more undiagnosed and unrelated side effectsthe Tenth Schedule controlled defections and brought stability butat the same timemade it impossible for political leaders and activists to discussdebate and express their thoughts freely and without fear It opened the gates for a situation wherein political bosses had a complete iron grip over their parties and the democratic space within parties became more and more constricted It was no longer possible for political parties to tolerate a young Turk like Chandra Shekhar of the 1960s and the 1970s Post Tenth Schedule and post Sonia Gandhis entry into politicsregional and smaller parties have become more brazen in their assertion of family dominance in party affairssuch as the DMKAkali DalSPRJDNCPetc Otherswithout family dominancehave developed strong authoritarian leadership styles like the BSP of

the slightest chance to explain myself and this wasironicallydone by those who swear by the name of the architect of the Indian ConstitutionBR Ambedkar Even tall leaders like Jnaneshwar Mishra and
