Why a few people become staunch supporters of political parties?"I am a supporter of XYZ party". "Oh, I am too a supporter of that party. You see, they are true nationalists and are so liberal. I am in the ABC movement, are you there, too"? Well, this may be a natural conversation between any two individuals, but why people become a supporter of a political party? Supporting any movement has a cause behind it. It is required to bring in some changes. There are different forms in which a movement can be organized. On the other hand, political parties are there to form the government and implement different schemes and work towards the welfare of the society.
Before every election they dish out their manifestos and campaign in every places to make people aware of their intended activities. People think on those issues and vote the political party they think fit to carry out the developmental agenda. It's a temporary process and in general, elections are held after every 5 years. In the next term, the same thing is repeated like distributing the manifestos and campaigns to mobilize support.
When the whole process is temporary, then why there are staunch supporters of every political party who never vote for any other party during elections? Why there are support bases of political parties? Are the people solely dependent on them, when the only role people can play to bring them in office is vote? Members, please express your views.
