India's alarming rise of criminal politicians

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"India's Supreme Court has made it mandatory for political parties to publish the names of any candidates with criminal records, along with a justification for why they were chosen.

"The top court said the "alarming rise" of "criminal candidates" had to be addressed urgently.

"Parties have 48 hours to disclose details of these candidates on their websites, and on social media.

"In 2019, 43% of newly-elected MPs had criminal records, up from 34% in 2014."

Alarming "rise"!  More like an increase in some sort of order.
