As India moves towards its general election next month, parties are making phased announcements of candidates from various constituencies, and independent candidates are announcing their own intention to run. But for the aam aadmi, what is the process of getting to run in a Lok Sabha election? What qualifies or disqualifies a potential candidate?
This week, we talk to Bidyut Chakrabarty, who is professor and head of the department of Political Science and also the Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Delhi.
Professor Chakrabarty holds a doctorate from the London School of Economics, has several publications to his name, and has lectured extensively in India and abroad.
