Some people are too much serious about politicians. We vote in elections because we are bound to vote as staying away from elections is not good as a citizen. We are responsible for electing a good candidate, no matter whether the candidate who did we vote for win or lose. It us the part of the event.
As far as huge crowd in election rallies is concerned, all of them can't be supporters of the candidate who is contesting election from a particular constituency. Mostly participants in rallies are hired for money or drink etc. Sometimes, people come just for fun. Some people come to see helicopter or if any actor us coming in rally, then most of people go to see the actor.
Those who are hired are paid Rs 300 or more. Main responsible person whom you may call a contactor for mobilising people are paid handsome amount as well as liquor.
After all, election is a big business which requires huge investment. Once a candidate wins election all expenses which were incurred in elections will get recuperated soon.
If the politicians are honest and sincere then they can control the administrative machinery and eradicate the menace of corruption from it. Unfortunately it does not happen or at least has not happened so far in our country and some of the politicians have made the administrative machinery a continuous source of ill earned money for them. The administrative machinery is also happy that if something happens or enquiry is done then the politicians will protect them. So this is a hand in glove situation.
Under this scenario one can take them seriously or not is a matter of individual perception.
Knowledge is power.

Even this challenging situation would ease
But middle-class people and who mind their duty and family always never bother about the politicians. We know that they never care for us. We may vote or may not vote. As such we will never be useful to them. That is why they never give a soft hearing to our problems and we also will never think about them because they are of no use to us. It is true irrespective of party or candidate.
