India is a very corrupt country. It is a well known fact. And most of our politicians that include members of parliament and ministers of the country are no exception. Unfortunately India has a huge number of people charge sheeted for various crimes including murder holding various posts. Is this acceptable? Should there be a code of conduct or a law that govern the MP's who hold these posts?
That is the question raised in a CNN IBN programme called Verdict.
Do watch this excellent discussion
I feel that it is almost next to impossible to pass such a law in India because the law is framed in the parliament and it is not a cause of any excitement for any of the political parties to pass such a law. It is unfortunate but the truth and this should change. There should be a law that kicks out any member of parliament who is corrupt or has been charge sheeted for various crimes. But will it ever happen? Only time can tell.
