"..Soviet Union or the present China were/are not seen to be corrupt
countries..."

That is as far away as you could go from the reality. Sure these two
countries are and were considered epicenters of corruption unless you
want to redifine corruption just to prove your point.

On another point :

"Maybe, the government should control only what it is
supposed to? Politics is one thing people are not
very much particular about entering even in singapore...."

I wouldn't compare Singapore with a democracy. Moreover,if you skip the
question of who should or should not take interest in politics, then how

do you determine as to who takes charge of the government (in a
democracy!) before you can ever pose a question as to "what a government

should or should not control?".

"...If the government denies to the people what they want
 and what they they should rightly have, I am sure it will lead to
corruption."

Don't give too much power to your ideal concept of "Government". It is
only against this problem of impossibility of such a government in real
world where everyone would get exactly what they want, that democracy,
and regular election of people's representatives to try to govern the
way people want, has gained popularity in modern times.

Thank You.
