The word ‘politician’ has become synonymous with deceitfulness and inefficiency in India. The reason behind this is not the skepticism of the mass but the misdeeds of political leaders. When the leaders behave irresponsibly, can the officials of the government act honest? As a result, corruption has spread like a vile disease through all the levels of political and governmental hierarchy. In the following you will find a list of most corrupted and incompetent Indian politicians.

M.Karunanidhi is probably the perfect example of corrupt and inefficient politicians of India. He was involved in the 2G scam and his role in it has been debated endlessly. He held the position of chief minister of Tamil Nadu despite failing health and hundreds of allegations of corruption to his name. He has been blamed for institutionalizing corruption in the state and making cash for votes a norm there.

Till date, she has been accused for her involvement in 46 corruption cases and yet her popularity as the leader of Tamil Nadu has not waned. One of the most severe corruption cases in which she had more than just a hand is the 70 million coal import scam. After raiding her abode, the police had found jewelry weighing 25 kilos of gold, and worth 51 crore in INR. She also has 10,500 sarees and more than 750 pairs of shoes.

It is a shame that despite belonging to the Dalit caste, Mayawati has done little for the progress of her people. Of course, we should consider that she must have been too engrossed in getting her idols built. When accusations of members of her political party raping women or loot innocent people emerge, she dithers and action and some say even attempts to save them. Though she was blamed for disproportionate assets and Taj Corridor case, she got elected as the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh four times.
In India, there may be scarcity of jobs and food but not of corrupted politicians. Astonishingly even after being charged for severe crimes they continue to hold powerful positions and commit more crimes in the name of welfare of the country.
