Top 7 Indian politicians facing serious corruption charges
FONT SIZE

New Delhi: The illicit use of power by politicians has turned the entire Indian polity into a venal one, where there is a price for everything. Corruption crept into the Indian body politic in the Seventies in a major way, and since then this cancer has spread across the length and breadth of the country.



Not only corrupt politicians, but also musclemen like Pappu Yadav have entered our legislatures so much so that a person like the late Prime Minister Inder Kumar Gujaral had once remarked in Parliament that he had to look over his shoulders to look whether there was a criminal sitting in the benches behind him or not.

For this article, we confine ourselves to corruption. Let's have a look at those politicians who are facing serious charges of corruption in lawcourts.  One one hand we have activists like Anna Hazare who is fighting for a truly Jan Lok Pal Bill, and on the other hand we have persons like Suresh Kalmadi and A Raja, who have become blots on the image of politicians.
