Political parties in India may have won landslide victories in elections, but should parties with unelected leaders be part of democratic politics?
“They must be happy having won the elections but what is it with the gestures they were making to me? I recognise them, they are friends of Majhi’s, our very own TMC leader.”

This was an audience that wants desperately to believe India finally has a leader who will turn around the country’s fortunes and put an end to their sense of shame at its failings.
