cant contest from jail

जेल से चुनाव नहीं लड़ सकते

Upholding a Patna High Court decision, the Supreme Court had said that if a jailed person can't vote, a jailed person is not qualified to contest elections either. The verdict means that a jailed politician can't contest even if there's no conviction or chargesheet, which, many politicians say, could open a can of worms.

The verdict has raised concerns about misuse by the police or a party in power for score-settling.
