Sign the Petition to

Govt of India, Prime Minister of India

Mr Prime Minister, Take immediate steps to implement recommendations of Justice Verma’s Committee on electoral reforms with a view to establish probity in public life.

A Parliament which consists of persons with criminal records is unlikely to pass any effective Criminal Law Amendment reform. 

If 31% of the Electoral College has either been charged with or convicted of a criminal offence, a fundamental attribute of morality which is inherent in discharging public functions stands seriously impaired.

Signed,

Jayashree Gupta

The Election Commission of India has been unable to deal with corruption which may exist through the medium of political parties because of the fact that it does not have any authority in law to do so. Imposing a barrier upon people who have criminal records from entering politics would be the easiest way to cleanse lawmaking bodies of the present day malady.'

You should sign and be part of this important campaign to end criminalization of politics.
