“The democracy has been evolved through struggles and movements all over the world.” Support with statement with examples.
Democracy evolves through popular struggles and movements. When a conflict arises, it may be solved by those groups which are in power and groups which aspire to share power. This leads to the evolution and expansion of democracy in the country.
Further, popular struggles and movements play an important role in a democracy. They help in widening democracy. They force the government to recognise and implement laws benefiting wider interests of the society. When a sectional interest group influences the government to make policies in their favour, another group may bring counter pressure on the government to not make the laws which the first group desires. This results in maintenance of power balance and accommodation of conflicting interests of the society which ultimately result in the deepening of democracy.
