Curiously, it is a Party, born of Democratic principles, is being run by a Single,extra constitutional, non accountable person.

No, it is run hands On, only difference the physical hands on different.
Secure in the knowledge that the potential leaders of Stature have been destroyed, puppets and sycophants without popular base having been installed,, the High Command( a misnomer,there is only One Command Center, why talk about a High Command?) is audacious to pull anything and get away with it, including the Media.
A pre-election strategy session is in progress, with the Finance Minister, who listens only to his voice,Defence Minister, who does not know where China is on the Map,Home Minister, who can be guaranteed to shoot his foot in his mouth.two rabble-rousers in the Media, (one can talk endlessly, for he is a Lawyer, without a point and another expert at wild allegations on those who oppose the party and the High Command-often the High Command uses him to test their party’s reactions by asking him to make atrocious charges against their party men and on Policy Matter-used to test the waters and the high Command can also say that ‘the views expressed by him are his very own and the party has nothing to do it).
Undaunted by firm circumstantial evidence of wrongdoing and corruption, the HC is planning a strategy session.
In fact, it is a Plan of Blackmail, Bullying and carrots.
Inevitable roasted cashew nuts, Pakoras and tea are being served for the Assembled.
