Shri Jaiveer Shergill said that politics and crime, politics and criminals are the two sides of the sea, which should never be reconciled. Keeping this in view, the Supreme Court has given a historic decision today. In order to purify politics, a decision has been given that the candidates who have been given tickets by the political parties, whether for the assembly elections, or for the Lok Sabha elections, what is so special in them that despite being criminals, they have been given the tickets. What is the justification for this, what is the reason? The Supreme Court has given a decision that every political party will have to issue this list on their website, through social media, through advertisements in the newspaper and will have to publish this list.
