Uttar Pradesh has the maximum percentage of MLAs (35 per cent) with pending criminal cases, with 143 out of the 403 MLAs being charged with criminal cases. Out of the 143, 76 (19 per cent) MLAs have serious criminal cases pending against them. Dhirendra Pratap Singh of the Bahujan Samaj Party has the highest number of criminal cases (29) -- of which 13 are serious charges -- followed by his party colleague Sushil Kumar with 14 cases pending against him. Notorious criminalities like Murder and attempt to murder are their charges. Still with no shame they filed their nominations. They still have the belief that they can be 'people's representatives'.
Even in richness, Uttar Pradesh candidates topped. They are richest MLA candidates. UP has 127 crorepati MLAs while Manipur has just 88, Punjab has 78, Goa 22 and Uttarakhand 11.
By this one can make out that Maya did gather Maya ( Money means Maya). Its not only Maya garlanded herself by money but she gives others 'invisible' garlands of money to fill their treasures. True statements made by candidates revealed that 'Bhrast-achar' toh bahut khaya in saaron ne.
In Goa, richest MLA candidate declared was industrialist and sitting independent MLA Anil Salgaoncar. He is the one who always spoke in favour of Opposition Minister of Goa Manohar Parrikar and against Congress Government. I get a question how Anil gathered money. Is that by settling matters with opposition Minister?
These '5 States battle' heat will continue for some days. So bear the heat in this cold season.
