Upper House, the procedure to select the candidates for upper house, Rajya Sabha is different and special, and then how come criminals are part of this Upper house.

I am a common Indian citizen and I think that if one is criminal his friend is majority times is a criminal.

It’s very difficult to see the Demon and God as friends.

In upper house also we can see that female representation is only 9 percent , here also political parties are not ready to give them fifty percent representation , or at least 33 percent reservation.

Even if an average citizen is aware of these things in general a detailed analysis like this is still shocking and embarrassing .

Very scary figures.. We have the minimum qualification for all the post. We don't have the basic qualification for the important posts which rules our country..
