CANDIDATES CRIMINAL AND FINANCIAL BACKGROUND IN PHASE 2, 2008 ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS IN KARNATAKA

KARNATAKA ELECTION WATCH (2008)

Karnataka Elections 2008 - Phase 2 Candidate Criminal and Financial Record Karnataka Election Watch 2008 In the 66 Assembly constituencies going to the polls on May16, 2008 in Phase 2, there are 49 candidates with a criminal record. A full list of the candidates is enclosed. Among the major parties, the BJP has 13 candidates having a criminal record, BSP has 7, the Congress 9, JDS 8, and other parties 12. There are 6 candidates who are charged with murder or attempt to murder. Several of them are charged with other violent crimes like assault with deadly weapons and so on. Women Candidates There are 14 women candidates. The BJP has 2, BSP 4, INC 2, JDS 2, JDU 2 and others 2. In the first phase there were a total of 17 women candidates from the major parties. The total percentage of women is less than 5% as in the first phase. Financial Record The total assets declared by all the 372 candidates considered by KEW for phase 2 was an impressive Rs.902 crores, with average candidate assets of Rs.2.42 crores. The INC led the parties with total declared candidate assets of Rs.470 crores and average candidate assets of Rs.7.35 crores.

As the Table shows, the three major parties account for 88.5% of total candidate assets with average candidate assets of Rs.4.18 crores. Clearly, elections have become a rich man’s game. It is very difficult for Independent candidates to win and the major parties give tickets to candidates with very high level of assets. There are 5 candidates who have declared assets of over Rs.30 crores – which we classify as “Very High”. Of this 2 are from the BJP, and 3 from the INC. Compared to phase 1 which included Bangalore, the number has come down from 14 to 5. Then there are 17 candidates who have “High Assets” between Rs. 5 crores and Rs. 30 crores. In spite of having such high assets, some of them have not declared their IT PAN numbers as required by the Election Commission. Details are enclosed. There are 46 candidates who have declared very low assets of Rs. 1 lakh or less. The following table gives a summary. Details are enclosed.

Criminal Records There are 49 candidates with a criminal record. Among the major parties, the BJP has 13 candidates having a criminal record, BSP has 7, the Congress 9, JDS 8, and other parties 12. There are 6 candidates who are charged with murder or attempt to murder. Several of them are charged with other violent crimes like assault with deadly weapons and so on. The party wise break up is given below for the BJP, INC and the JDS compared to the 2004 elections. Party

Note: Phase 2 this time has 66 constituencies. In 2004 it had 104 constituencies of which data for 98 was available. As can be seen, these three parties have not shown any significant decline in the percentage of candidates with criminal records. The criminal charges include murder, attempt to murder, criminal intimidation and death threats, grievous injury with deadly weapons, forgery and cheating. There are at least 6 candidates from the major parties with murder or attempt to murder cases against them. The cynical cycle of putting up such candidates continues. Changes in Criminal records There are at least 29 candidates whose criminal record has changed since 2004. The details are given in the enclosures. Of this, there are 13 from the BJP, 7 from the INC, 5 from the JDS and 4 from other parties. This needs to be investigated by the authorities. Education and Age of Candidates Of the 372 candidates considered in Phase 2, 31 has post graduate degrees, 26 had technical degrees (like BE etc), 6 MBBS, 47 LLB, 97 graduates, 48 PUC, 49 matriculates, 35 non matriculates. The rest did no mention their educational qualifications. The number of candidates who were 60 years old or more was 41, between 45 and 60 was 171, and less than 45 was 160.

Conclusions The overall quality of candidates leaves much to be desired. The criminal records in particular are a little alarming. Unless this trend is checked, elections, democracy and overall governance will suffer. A lot of candidates are industrialists from the real estate, liquor, mining and other businesses. Unless business interests are aligned to citizen interests this raises interesting questions about governance and democracy. The average assets of candidates from the major parties was Rs.4.18 crores which means that the parties have turned their back on candidates with low assets. A lot of candidates have reported huge increase in their assets. This also needs to be investigated so that public trust is restored.

Karnataka Election Watch (KEW) is part of a nationwide movement to improve democracy. It is a citizen led non-political, non-partisan effort. This time several NGOs activists and civil society organizations in Karnataka are participating in this effort. All information about candidates has been taken from the affidavits filed by candidates with their nomination papers. While all efforts have been made to ensure that the information in this report is correct, in case of any discrepancy, the information from the nomination papers should be treated as correct. Neither ADR nor KEW nor their volunteers are responsible or liable for any damage arising directly or indirectly from the release of this report.
