ABSTRACT
The article reports on the dispute between Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Prince Rahul Gandhi, vice president of India's ruling Congress party. Gandhi finds Prime Minister Singh's ordinance that seeks to overturn the decision of the Supreme Court of India disqualifying convicted lawmakers from contesting elections as nonsense. Observation shows the anger of the Indian public and speculation from the media at the criminalization of politics and the issue of corruption in the country.
