So he split from Congress and formed a new party called Democratic Indira Congress (DIC). What about Bal Thakeray, once the roaring tiger of
Not forgetting Deve Gouda, Devilal, Scindia Family, Gandhi Family. They all have their sons and daughters following in their footsteps and one time or the other faced the revolt because of this.

Another instance is if a leader is expelled from a party for any reason, be it corruption, or even conspiracy against state, they immediately float a new party. Lots of examples for that too. These self-anointed demy-gods claims to have a broad voter base support and by hook or crook they get elected.

Kerala Congress (J) - Joseph
Kerala Congress (B) – Balakrishna Pillai His son is already an MLA
Kerala Congress (J) – Jacob Group
