Patna, Oct 7: With Bihar elections around the corner, the National Election Watch has found out almost 25 per cent of the candidates have criminal cases registered against them on Wednesday, Oct 6.

According to CNN-IBN reports, if these candidates are applied to politicians of Bihar, none of them will come out clean. Be it Lalu, Nitish or Paswan, they all claim to have a crime-free Bihar, on top of their agenda and interestingly all three have fielded quite a few criminals on their party tickets.

Meanwhile, nomination papers of 31 of 711 candidates who have filed their papers for 47 seats going to polls in the first phase in Bihar were rejected on technical grounds, an election official said.

Additional Chief Electoral Officer Kumar Anshumali told sources that nomination of candidates of the major political parties have been found in order.
