Making the case for term limits
An Indian politician is recruiting crooks to join his party because he thinks their cunning, dishonesty and selfishness make them perfect for life as an MP.
Former railways minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, 62, has launched an appeal for old lags to take office in his National People's Party.
"It's the best way to select candidates for politics. Show me your jail stint and join me," said Yadav.
"Most politicians end up crooked so they might as well start that way," he added.
