The MPs and MLAs are representative of the people of India. They are the persons who are elected by them and people believe that they will do the right things. If any MP or MLA get the conviction by the court, it means they did something wrong, which is against the law and welfare concept. In short, they broke the trust of those people who voted for him.
There is a PIL filed by the BJP leader and advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay for the formation of Special courts to decide criminal cases against the politicians, that will help the speedy justice and decide their career in politics. According to section 8 of RPA, 1951, a person is disqualifies for contesting election if he or she is convicted for any criminal offence. In this case, senior counsel Vijay Hansaria is appointed as Amicus Curiae, he is supporting that in spite of special courts it will good o appoint a magistrate in each district to dealt with this section specifically. It will not create an additional burden on the government and decision will also come fastly. This is the second prayer of the wit petition, the main petition is related to the lifetime ban on the politician if they are convicted for any criminal offence, for which next date is given by SC. On 4th December court will firstly decide this and then consider the special court point.
According to me, this petition will play a significant role in the country’s development; a country is represented by their politicians, if they are criminals then, what will be the country’s people condition. If lawmakers are criminal then what will be the country’s law system. The lifetime ban will be a good decision and then fear will generate in the politician's mind also and they will not misuse their powers.
