The push towards de-criminalization of politics has been strengthened by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s recent speech in the Rajya Sabha, where he emphasized on the urgent need to cleanse the Parliament of members with tainted records through the judicial mechanism within one year.  

 

ADR and NEW welcome this statement of the Prime Minister on the floor of the Rajya Sabha. We urge and expect the Prime Minister to deliver his promise of a taint free Parliament by 2015. Towards this end, we urge the Prime Minister to:

·         1. Write to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to ensure that all pending criminal cases against MPs are decided within one year of the date the results of the election were announced.

·         2. Get a unanimous resolution passed both Houses of Parliament requesting the Chief Justice to ensure the above.
