Analysis of Candidates Announced by Congress and BJP for LS Polls

Despite much hue and cry, the two major political parties – Congress and BJP – have continued to field candidates with criminal background. Winnability, it seems is the final deciding factor in giving tickets to netas. The Association for Democratic Reforms and National Election Watch recently analysed the first and second list put out by the two grand parties for the upcoming LS polls, and here’s what they found:

 

Analysis of Declared Criminal Cases:

Candidates with Cases of Murder and related:

    This same report came on AAP website also. Has New Indian Express has got any partnership with AAP. It is also to be noted that in the case of congress they have analysed 126 out of which 33 (26%) were found with criminal cases, in the case of BJP they analysed only 62 candidates and found 23 (37%) having criminal records. This was done to show that BJP has more criminal candidates percentage wise.

    Number of criminal cases against Kejriwal is not 1, not 2 ,… but 5 ! http://myneta.info/delhi2013/candidate.php?candidate_id=65 His “crime-o-meter” is almost in total red area. Indeed the AAPtards will say all these are “for a cause” or “false cases” while they will obviously not be willing to apply the same when it comes to other parties. Law is the same for all

    Most of the BJP candidates are victim of secular party rule! Watch Amit Shah in AAP ki Adalat on India TV to clear the air.
