Criminals and Politics, a better love story than Twilight. This is not just a meme statement but is the reality of our political system. Clean Politics is a myth. Sadhvi Pragya Singh was accused of Malegaon Blast incident in 2008. She is on bail.
Sadhvi will contest from Bhopal Lok Sabha seat after former Madhya Pradesh chief ministers Chouhan and Uma Bharti declined to contest from the constituency. She would take on Congress candidate Digvijaya Singh.
On December 27, 2017, a special NIA court had dropped stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act charges against Lieutenant Colonel Prasad Purohit, Sadhvi Pragya, Sameer Kulkarni and other accused in the blast case. Six persons were killed and 101 were injured when an improvised explosive device strapped on a motorcycle went off at Malegaon on September 29, 2008.
Criminals are participating in elections though it is not new. It is quite prevalent and according to survey conducted by Association for Democratic Reforms, chances for a criminal to win the elections are higher than that of a clean and honest politician. The definition of Ache din has changed and it is not good at all.
