Over 100 Lok Sabha MPs have criminal cases against them, most ‘crorepati’ lawmakers from BJP, finds ADR report
At least 83 per cent of 521 sitting MPs are 'crorepatis' and 33 per cent of them have criminal cases against them, according to a report by election watchdog ADR
In AY 2014-15, crorepati individuals or those with gross income of over Rs 1 crore were 48,417 with a cumulative income of Rs 2.05 lakh crore
According to the report, the number of crorepati employees has fallen to 54 in 2015-16 from 113 in FY15
At least 428 MLAs or nearly half of all the winners in recently concluded assembly elections — in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Assam, West Bengal and Puducherry — are crorepatis.
In a welcome change from the politics we are used to seeing in India, it turns out that most of the newly elected Delhi MLA's don't have serious criminal charges against them.
Out of 1343 candidates, 122 candidates declared assets worth more than Rs 10 crore against 41 candidates from the previous Haryana Assembly elections in 2009
