Mention any five factors responsible for the failure of provisional government which was formed after Russian Revolution.
In March 1917, Soviet leaders and Duma leaders formed provisional government to run the country. Lenin and Bolshevik party thought that this was not the time for Socialist Revolution and the provisional government needed to be supported.
The five factors which were responsible for the failure of provisional government are given below:
- Bolshevik influence grew and the provisional government saw its power reduced. So, it decided to take stern measures against the spreading discontent.
- Peasants and their sociajist leader wanted a redistribution of land which could not be fulfilled by the government.
- This government could not succeed to control over industry by the workers. But it resisted attempts by workers to run factories.
- This government began arresting the leaders and the popular demonstrations staged by the Bolsheviks were repressed.
- The failure of the equal distribution of the land resources was a great cause of resentment among the peasants.
