India being the largest democracy and a multiparty system plays a great role in politics. Since independence we have been witnessing number of trends in party politics in India. He described the meaning of politics of contemporary time as struggle of power by using any possible means. He also described how opposition have been disintegrated since 2014, general elections. There is a need to revive UPA. INC is doing its best to revive UPA but is not successful enough. 2019 general elections are not so far and UPA should bring all the small parties under one umbrella. However Rahul Gandhi is trying his best but small parties are not willing to shake hands with INC. NDA is also doing its best to make government again in forthcoming elections but its also facing challenges by Shiv Sena. There are contionuos persistent efforts by both UPA and NDA. Keynote speaker Sunil K Chaudhary said when i got the invitation from DAV, Jalandhar i agreed without even thinking once. He described the staff of department of political science as jewels and compared them to 7 wonders of world. He said social scientists can not predict future but can describe emerging trends. Political science is a strategy for the struggle of power. But time has come that after gaining the power , now its need to distribute that power amidst the common people which in reality deserve power. He described various layers of democratic upsurge. Mr Cleon was first in the world to define democracy. First democratic upsurge gave the idea of Universal Adult Franchise. Democracy is a value to abolish discrimination and is a process to form a government in a fair manner. Shri jayprakash narayan was the first to led a revolution against corruption. Second democratic upsurge brought 4 Ms:- Mandal movement, Mandir, Masjid, Market (competetive electoral market). Third democratic upsurge brought the idea of LPG ( liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation) which created a specific role in the global market system.
