Buying of innocence

The Congress wants the BCCI to lift the ban imposed on past Indian Cricket Captain, and match-fixing accused (in 2000) Mohammed Azaruddin. His becoming an MP from Moradabad has suddenly made him whiter than white. The membership of Parliament confers lots of benefits, often misused, but it is not clear if absolving someone of guilt, even when cases against him are on in courts , is one of them.

In the meanwhile The National Election Watch has declared that 28.60 % of our MP's have a criminal background, and this percentage is up 19.5% from the last Lok Sabha constituted in 2004.

Will this cause a rush of criminal MP's on their way to sainthood ? Only time and Someone in Delhi can tell .

Don't watch this space.

Yes this a space that must shame India. But given the direction in which we are headed, this will be the most watched one.

Our MPs are our law makers. With so many of them having criminally broken existing laws now qualified to make new laws, I will not be surprised if they pass a law that not only absolves them of previous crimes - they have been vindicated in the real court of the people you see - but also expunges them from their records.

That is the only way to ensure that our leaders will have a clean record.

Criminalisation of politics and Politicisation of criminals....

The irony is that we have entrusted the law breakers and criminals to get into the Parliament to make the laws so that they can continue to break the same legally.
