This is with reference to the report, “More crorepatis and candidates with criminal cases” (April 20). These crorepatis must take care not to fall prey to greed, make the best use of the wealth already in their possession, and keep away from unlawfully acquiring more. The Election Commission could have convened an all-party meeting earlier to arrive at a consensus on the issue of debarring criminally inclined persons from contesting the elections. If this had been done, we wouldn’t have such people in the Central and State governments.
