Clean up India's politics!

To political party leaders:

As concerned citizens from across India we call on you to pass a strong Electoral Reform bill that bars people convicted of criminal or corruption charges from running for or holding office unless and until that conviction is overturned by a court of law. India can only fulfil its potential if we clean up our politics.

Clean up India's politics!

It's shocking! One in four Indian MPs has a criminal record or faces prosecution. But, an exciting new law could change all that, if it gets enough public support.

Union Law Minister Salman Khursheed has drafted a bold bill which would make it impossible for any convicted politician to run for office or remain in parliament. But corrupt politicians threatened by the bill plan to derail it at an all party meeting in a few days time. Only we can stop them with a massive public call to party leaders to support the law.

This is our best chance to clean up our politics. Let’s send political party bosses a strong signal to accept the draft bill and agree to pass it in the winter session. Sign the urgent petition, and circulate it to everyone -- we'll deliver it to party bosses ahead of the all party meeting.
