Support of underworld and criminals and candidates having pending criminal cases has led to criminalization of politics. Use of criminals to get even and remove competition in election is widely used by political parties.

Revolutions had their advantages at their times. They were taken up at a time when the common man did not had any say in the administration of the government. They were oppressed and war was imposed on them. Criticism of government was not allowed and people who criticized had to live in constant fear of their rulers. They had to form underground societies. The discontent among the masses seethed and had no outlet. To alleviate such discontent, the British government helped the formation of Indian National Congress as a safety valve. But these concessions were very limited and hardly did much to lessen the misery of the people. In such circumstances, the masses left with no choice had to resolve to arm and the outburst of these armed masses turned into a violent revolution.
