In terms of percentages, the total is a shocking 36% of parliamentarians and state assembly members facing criminal trials.

With parliamentarians shocking India’s general public with court cases, there is another major issue. Many MLA’s are in the ‘crorepati’ status. In Nagaland, for example, 75% of MLA’s are crorepatis which means 45 out of the 60 MLAs have wealth worth over 1 crore.
It is very obvious that corruption has got them elected, keeps them elected and will help them stay in power for the years to come. 20 MLAs in Nagaland, for example, are said to have educational qualifications between 8th pass and 12th pass, 39 MLAs have shown the graduate level of education while one MLA is completely illiterate. That means most of the MLA’s don’t know the history of the country neither do they know the laws governing the country.

A politician is known to serve people, in this case, it seems like the politician prospers and bends the laws for himself and his family.
