'Nation is losing patience': SC to govt on urgent need to clean up po itics
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday drummed loudly the urgency for weeding out criminals from oral po itics, and scathingly criticised the Centre's lackadaisical approach in enacting suitable laws to decriminalise legislatures and warned that the nation is losing patience as repeated appeals for reforms have fallen in the deaf ears of slee po itical parties.
In a 71-page judgment holding most po itical parties guilty of contempt for breaching a SC d down rules mandating publicising criminal antecedents of candidates in the fray, a bench of Justices R F Nariman and B R Gavai said, "The nation continues to wait, and is losing patience. Cleansing the polluted stream of po itics is obviously not one of the immediate pressing concerns of the legislative branch of go nment."
在一份长达71页的判决中，大多数政党因违反最高法院规定而被判藐视法庭罪。最高法院规定，必须公开竞争中候选人的犯罪前科。法官R F Nariman和B R Gavai表示，“整个国家继续等待，但正在失去耐心。清理政坛污浊显然还不是政府立法部门最紧迫的问题之一。”
The bench recounted the apex court's continuous efforts for nearly a decade to decriminalise po itics and said, "No one can deny that the menace of criminalisation in the Indian po itical sy em is growing day by day. Also, no one can deny that for maintaining purity of the po itical sy em, persons with criminal antecedents and who are involved in criminalisation of the po itical sy em should not be permitted to be the lawmakers."
"This court, time and again, has appealed to the lawmakers of the country to rise to the occasion and take steps for bringing out necessary amendments so that the involvement of persons with criminal antecedents in polity is prohibited. All these appeals have fallen on the deaf ears. The po itical parties refuse to wake up from deep slumber," it added.
Justices Nariman and Gavai said though the court wanted to proceed further, its hands are tied because of the boundaries of separation of power between the judiciary and legislature, which alone had the power to enact laws.
I totally agree with SC, but they excluded cleaning up the Indian Judiciary sy em!!!
I thank you SUPREME COURT for this !
Please .. please also push for urgent police reforms!
Great , this judge has no greed of rajya sabha seat unlike his predecessor. We need more like him.
Currently irrespective of criminal status if someone joins bjpeee he immediately becomes free from police ed cbi income tax etc. no matter what charges.

Clean the criminals out of the po itics PM Modi
Anyone with criminal antecedant or even accused of criminal trespass must be barred from standing for ions.
And how many pending cases do we have in courts? SC judges are becoming reality tv show stars!
Will judiciary stop giving bail to po itical criminals? Stop having special midnight hearing sessions for congress people?
Common People of this country lost their fa th and patience long back in your judiciary also, me lord
When will supreme Court and egoistic judges realize that common people have lost patience and fa th in judiciary and courts long back. If Supreme Court does not take notice of inefficient lower court judges who do not take decisions because of their incompetence, delay justice to common citizens.
Court is the root cause of corrupt and criminal po iticians. They escape from all court cases and are clean. These criminals rule india.
