Sanjay Dutt's plea to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections was on Tuesday rejected by the Supreme Court. The court said Dutt was convicted for 'serious offence' under the Arms Act by a Mumbai TADA court.

The bench said that Dutt was disqualified from contesting the elections under Section 8 (3) of the Representation of People Act, which debars a person sentenced to two or more years of imprisonment, from standing for polls.

It’s a very good judgment by a Supreme Court. This judgment will also be made applicable to all politicians with criminal back ground. Probably it will help us flush out corrupt / convicted / Criminal minded and politicians with Criminal back ground from the political system.

Unless the constitution is changed that any citizen even has a smallest crime record whether he is convicted or not, should be barred from contesting any election whatsoever, whether it is panchayat election, legistative assembly or parliament election. then only the politics of India will become clean.

Judiciary system should be up and above the individual personality, judgment should not be effected by the person position and power in the system. The judgment by the supreme court is very correct, the judge were stand to there judgment without considering his position and reputation in society, it will show good image of Indian Law to people of India.
