Ministers and drug trafficking

Yesterday evening I was shocked watching CNN-IBN news channel which claimed to have done an investigation. Two reporters as under disguise as drug traffickers go to Uttar Pradesh Minister for Backward Classes and request for his help. They went with hidden cameras (technology improvement has to appreciated). After long discussion, Minister accepts for transporting drugs in his official vehicle to Delhi. His quoted price is 20lakhs for every 1crore worth drugs!
Worst is he said another Minister incharge for Prisons also does drug trafficking!

Way to go Indian Politics. When will this stop? Where is this all leading to?
The Election Commision has to strictly prohibit all candidates with criminal record/pending criminal cases to contest in elections. Will all Political Parties come to a consensus on this.

Indian Express print edition carried an article on same but it is not to be found in the online edition.
