Nobody denied that Munde was sulking (and one should not grudge the right to be dissatisfied with the distribution of power within the party) The party then tried to sort this out through a series of parleysboth between Munde and some top party leadersand among the party leaders themselves Munde brought pressure to bear by making moves to shift to another partyand also by threatening to hurt the party organisation in his home state Then there was some counter-pressurising; and finallyat least for the momentMunde had to beat a strategic retreatthough he is far from quiet or pacified So the intra-party competition will certainly continue All these are the signs of a living (though chaotic) political organisation Competitionpower struggles and negotiations mark the life of political parties This is not to give a certificate to any one political party It is helpful to understand that political parties in India do not entirely lack intra-party democracy or intra-party negotiations; they do not lack deliberative mechanisms albeit of a less bureaucratised or routinised nature This same process can be seen in the case of the other large political partythe Congress Whether it is the Jaganmohan episode or the famous spat between Chidambaram and Digvijaya Singh on the Maoist issueit is necessary that we read the unfolding drama in the right perspective This is not to say that all is well with our parties Yetit is necessary that we first decide what is not a core issue when critiquing them The extent of negotiationand the style or mechanism for dispute resolutionwill vary from party to party but let us not trap ourselves into incorrectly criticising parties as having no intra-party democracy Such criticisms stem from sanitised ideas of party functioning based on the experience of very small-scale and only nominally mass-based parties in the Western democracies The writer teaches political science at the University of Pune For all the latest Opinion News download

who smiles before walking away The seamer and the leggie are at the National Cricket Academy for rehab from injuries and both realise the frenzy that’s about to set in the city Leaving the two cricketers in the outdoors café with their South Indian snacks you head to the stadium to see a surprising sight: water sprinkling here and there Where Pune looked a parched desert the groundstaff at stadium in Bangalore aren’t being miserly with water Not yet The word is that the pitch would be a slow turner — something that would help spin from second or third day but it won’t be a sand pit A usual Bangalore track in other words The teams are expected to come Tuesday evening into the city and would be coming to the stadium on Wednesday It’s ironical that just when the memories of South Africa Test in Nagpur seemed a distant memory especially after a fabulous home season the shenanigans in Pune have brought the pitch back in focus Indians worked hard through the season to dispel any talk about pitch as conspiratorial nonsense from media but here we are a week from the Test and all the talk has come down to the 22-yard strip No one is obviously giving any official quotes about the pitch but where is the fun in that As if anyone in Pune was musing about sand pit before the game It’s the rumours that one is interested anyway You walk out to the entrance area where police and association heads are sauntering about to do some small talk when Brijesh Patel former KSCA president who resigned post Supreme Court developments walks in He might have resigned but obviously hasn’t severed his ties but when asked about the pitch he smiles puts his hands upwards and walks off And so you hit the clubhouse area It’s early evening and only thing flowing is filter coffee and the savoury khara bhath that closely resembles upma but tastes way better Familiar faces — from umpires scorers officials admin staff — are lounging about Sip some coffee and gulp in some gossip Talk revolves how the pitch backfired in Pune (for India that is) and how the non-spinner Stephen O’Keefe was the best because he was the “worst” spinner out there Someone says India should have tried M Vijay or even Cheteshwar Pujara — India’s worst might have turned it less and produced better results If only the game was as simple as that but you move on and bring the discussion to the pitch in Bangalore MUST READ |Late recognition for Australia spin consultant SridharanSriram Would there be a word from the Indian management here After the laughter subsides an official points out the strained relations between India’s head coach Anil Kumble and Brijesh Patel’s men “You know the history and how the election was fought last time around Even if Brijesh has resigned it’s his men who are running the show It would be really surprising if Kumble or anyone else has any demands here” Not everyone agrees with that argument Someone would come with a request or two they say But if the track plays out like a normal Bangalore track — spin but nothing alarming like Pune Indians might be happy with that The consensus about the pitch is that there will be spin but not from the first ball It seems a fairly sensible thing to do after what went down in Pune but time will tell For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | New Delhi
