外文标题：30% of Modi's ministers face criminal charges

Hope the wealth aquired by these ministers are thru fair means -- and they might have paid Taxes. Being wealth is not a crime . Now they have to commit for the welfare of the common man -- we have a very high expectations from the Govt . Otherwise -----------------------------------

I think Government should set up fast courts to get a decision for the 'criminal cases" against the current ministers so that we have only ministers with clean image.

Is there a chart that compares the criminal records of UPA and NDA ministers?
the ministers are like managers working for a CEO, modi will have to control and monitor his team well to ensure all pending ccases are run thru a fair trial and if found guilty - they be ounished appropriately. ache din aane wale hai - but it wont be easy. but happy that its a start!

Great improvement from the previous figure of 100%! Good going India, we'll get there!
as per SC rule any politician with case agaist them has to be processed within a yr and if convicted they have to vacate the seat .
Modi had promised that, he would set up special courts to complete trial of cases against all politicians. This includes members from his party too. So let us not jump into conclusion, based on this. All parties have MPs with criminal cases registered. Even AAP members have cases against them, but it doesn't mean AAP members are criminals. Let's wait for court to decide. There have been so many instances where the cases have been dismissed
Kidnaper becomes minister, is not this a serious issue.
