One of Big loophole in Indian law system –
The Chautalas can continue as MLAs in the current Assembly till the expiry of its term in October 2014 despite their conviction today.
Elected Politicians get protection under Section 8(4) of the Representation of People (RP) Act, 1951, which allows convicted MPs and MLAs to retain their status as representatives of their constituencies in the Lok Sabha or the respective Assemblies.
After getting punishment what convicted criminal politician has to do?
The criminal convicted MP or MLA have to simply file an appeal against the conviction within three months.
2nd loophole in the Indian Election laws
Convicted MP or MLA is allowed to contest the election again if the high court or the Supreme Court stays their conviction-pending disposal of their appeal.

Former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala and his son Ajay, Sher Singh Badshami along with IAS officers Vidhyadhar (then officer on special duty to the chief minister) and Sanjeev Kumar (then Director Primary Education) have been jailed for 10 years in connection with the illegal recruitment of Junior Basic Trained (JBT) teachers by Special CBI Judge Vinod Kumar
In this case, no teacher has lost his job because of this corruption.
Why they did not lose the job?
I do not know how many teachers paid how much money and got the Job.
The recruitment was done for over 3,200 teachers in 1999-2000, when Chautala was chief minister.
Now they are convicted for tampering or changing the list and doing this the teachers who paid money to them got the job.
Don’t you think elected Politicians when do corruption it amounts to treson
For Treson punishment is death so corrupt politicians need to be given a death punishment.
