The Association for Democratic Reforms and Lily Thomas took up the task of tackling what had become a serious blot on our democratic system. It was on the basis of a writ petition filed by them that the apex court ruled that lawmakers have to quit if they are convicted of a crime. Immediately after this RJD chief Lalu Prasad and Congress's Rashid Masood lost their membership of Parliament. The ADR's study of Assembly and Lok Sabha candidates' affidavits are highly valued. They are considered the most authentic public study documents on Indian electoral system.
