No criminals in politics: New campaign launched

An all-India campaign against criminals in politics was launched by former RBI governor and chairperson of Public Interest Foundation Bimal Jalan. Successive governments in Jammu and Kashmir have failed to fulfil their promise that militants who surrender would be rehabilitated and charges against them withdrawn.
