Factors affecting democracy ● The success of democracy in India defies many prevailing theories that stipulate preconditions. ● Religion as a major cultural influence plays an important role in politics. ● Political party support depends greatly on differentiating the electorate along religious lines. ● The caste system crosses religious boundaries to reach the two Hindu peoples. Hindus have four main castes and hundreds of sub-castes.

Disadvantages of Indian Politics In the last general election held in India in 2009 only 59 of the eligible population voted given the countrys demographics which represent about 30 of the total population. According to many estimates the educated middle class votes the least in terms of percentages and therefore leaders are chosen by parties based on caste creed and other similar factors that interest the poor population. People are asking for votes on the name of caste religion and other sentimental issues rather than on development and other rational issues. With the presence of various parties in various regions and the absence of a strong national party the Indian government became a slave to coalition politics which deterred many advances. Although there are other arguments of this kind the fact remains that India is the largest democracy and will remain so for a long time. If the political system focuses on obtaining votes by ensuring development the numbers are in favor of India and can therefore enable it to become the superpower it aspires to become.

Political corruption is the abuse of public power office or resources by elected officials of the government for personal purposes such as extortion solicitation or offering of bribes. offices that keep up by buying votes by passing laws that use taxpayers money.
