A judgement to be welcomed.. y.. for making me to write about it J… 🙂
It reads that the MP/MLA if convicted for the charges against him/her will be disqualified.. good to hear.. but..
statistics about the so called people representatives, read in CNN IBN..
As many as 31 per cent Members of Parliament (MPs), legislators (MLAs/MLCs) have criminal cases pending against them in police record, according to study done by the National Election Watch and Association of Democratic Reforms (ADR). According to a report out of the 4,835 MPs and MLAs in the country, 1,448 are facing criminal cases.
Out of 543 Lok Sabha MPs, 162 have criminal cases pending against them with 75 facing serious criminal charges. Out of these 1448 members who have declared criminal cases, 641 have declared serious criminal cases like rape, murder, attempt to murder, kidnapping, robbery, extortion etc. Six MPs/MLAs/MLCs have declared rape charges in their affidavits.
Any number of Judgements may be pronounced.. but our leaders will make sure that they remain as Leaders..
I believe it is not going to impact much, as the fact is, it takes many years for a case to get to any closure, within which you will see people already charged like “fruit language” getting elected to the house for the consecutive term..
