    Revealing the relationship between crime, wealth and politics, the Mail Today and the Times of India quote data analysed by the Association for Democratic Reforms showing that 43% of MLAs in Delhi Assembly face criminal cases followed by Madhya Pradesh "a poor second with 25% and Rajasthan is third with 16%."

A matter of seconds can make a huge difference to new born babies."
