The question: http://twitter.com/prempanicker/status/56231749319008256
A passport, arguably, lets you become a representative of your country; to another country. You are, at some level, an ambassador for your home country when you travel outside it.
Lok Sabha membership lets you represent your state / Union Territory / community, within India. Membership of the Lok Sabha requires that the person must meet all the following requirements:
- A citizen of India
- Aged 25 or over,
- Mentally sound,
- Should not be bankrupt,
- If the person have criminal proceedings in courts ,the person has to mention it when they file their affidavit to election commission; and,
- Must not be criminally convicted
Are you sure that a police verification is not required for a ticket?’
A post & a Twitter response about (Indian, too!) politics…wow, I must be getting older quicker than I thought.
