Another serious weakness of the Indian body politic has been the increasing level of corruption that pervades Indian society. India ranked 94th (out of the 174 countries surveyed) on the Transparency International 2012 ‘Corruption Perceptions Index, alongside Mongolia, Greece and Moldova – hardly the position expected of a mature parliamentary democracy. Former Indian minister and senior Congress party MP Rasheed Masood was sent to jail for four years in a corruption case involving admissions to medical colleges. Mr Masood, a member of Rajya Sabha, India’s upper house of parliament, was found guilty of ‘fraudulently nominating undeserving candidates to seats in medical colleges. Under recent Indian legislation, any member receiving a criminal sentence of more than two years faces automatic disqualification from parliament. Efforts had been made to reverse the new law, but these looked doomed when Rahul Gandhi, senior leader of the ruling Congress party, described moves by his government to protect convicted MPs as ‘complete nonsense’.
