Political Parties

Question:

Write a brief note on State Parties in India.

Answer:

Parties which have their presence only in the state level are called State parties. These include parties with national level political organisation, but which have succeeded in only a few states. Samajwadi party, Rashtriya Janata Dal, Samata Party are examples of state parties with a national presence.
Most state parties consciously maintain a strong state-specific identity, like Biju Janata Dal and the Mizo National Front.
Over the last few decades, state or regional parties has grown considerably. Since 1996, every government at the national level has been a coalition of parties headed usually by one national party. This has led to strengthening of the federal structure of our government.
