Bihar election will be the first test of Supreme Court order

The Supreme Court has asked the political parties to produce details of all criminal cases of their party candidates contesting for the assembly election in Bihar scheduled for later this year.

The challenge for the politicians, said a senior BJP leader in Patna, would be to strike a balance between a candidate’s ability to win elections and also his criminal record.

“Any political party going to the election with promises of transparent and clean politics will now think twice before fielding anyone with criminal antecedents”

The Bihar Election Watch and Association for Democratic Reforms report revealed that 142out of 243 MLAs in Bihar had criminal cases pending against them in 2015 when assembly polls were last held. Ninety of them had declared serious criminal cases including those related to murder, communal disharmony, kidnapping and crimes against women.

Earlier this month, the police filed a charge sheet against RJD MLA Arun Yadav, who is also accused of raping a minor girl at his residence in Patna. Arun Yadav has been on the run ever since his name cropped up in a sex racket busted in September last year.

The Supreme Court order has made it mandatory for political parties to upload on their website detailed information regarding individuals with pending criminal cases who have been selected as candidates, along with the reasons for such selection.

On the other hand, there is also a possibility that fresh cases are filed on trumped-up charges against political rivals just to scuttle their chances to contest the 2020 Bihar elections.

Chamoli Glacier Burst

Uttarakhand: A glacial burst in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand triggered an avalanche and massive flooding of the Alaknanda and Dhauliganga rivers on Sunday morning, forcing the emergency evacuation of thousands from surrounding areas, and damaging houses and the nearby Rishiganga power project.

Disaster response and management teams have been deployed to conduct search-and-rescue and relief operations. Around 100 to 150 people may have been killed, Uttarakhand Chief Secretary Om Prakash told news agency ANI. Authorities fear hundreds more may still be stuck. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is in Assam to campaign for Assembly polls, tweeted: “India stands with Uttarakhand and the nation prays for everyone’s safety.”

Disaster management teams have been mobilized and hundreds of ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) have been rushed for rescue operations.

SN Pradhan, chief of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), said that teams from the relief force have been moved for search-and-rescue and relief operations in Uttarakhand where a glacial burst has triggered an avalanche. “The glacial burst has taken out a bridge constructed by the Border Road Organisation. Also in the higher reaches, the Rishiganga hydel project also has been damaged,” he said.
