PIL(Public Interest Litigation) on criminalization of Politics in India

People with any criminal background  should not be given a high position on which the cases are pending.

In the recognition of the parties, the pre-conditions for not giving tickets to Politicians having political background will be made.

To effectively prevent the criminalization of politics, political parties should stop allowing tickets to  politicians having criminal background and demanding this, a PIL has been filed in the Supreme Court. Earlier in this particular issue, the Apex Court observing the seriousness  has already issued a stricture in which the court remarked that Criminals in Political arena in India just like the deadly cancer.

It has been demanded in this petition that the Supreme Court has clearly stated in the CVC appointment (2011) that such people should not be seated on high posts against whom criminal cases are pending.

Advocate Ashwani Upadhyay has urged in the petition that  according to People’s Representation Act of 29A and Symbol Order if recognition of Political party shall be made with a precondition of not giving tickets to the Politicians having Criminal background can absolutely stop at it’s first step towards criminalization of Politics in India.

After this, no candidate will need to get an affidavit for his background . It is said in the petition that ordering such stricture, Supreme Court must not violate the principle of division of powers, because there is no law for this kind of case i.e. legislative vacuum. This vacant place  of  law also can be filled with a new court orders.
