The most unfortunate is the BJP MP Som Parkash, who has resources worth Rs 2.94 crore and got chose from the Hoshiarpur voting public.
Despite the fact that riches can’t be a parameter for appointive achievement however it makes a difference on the off chance that one needs to challenge surveys from the set up gatherings. Altogether, there were absolute 278 competitors in quarrel for the 13 Lok Sabha seats and of them 67 were crorepatis.

Just crorepati hopefuls challenged from the Congress, SAD and BJP. Eight crorepatis challenged from the AAP. The Punjab Ekta Party, Lok Insaaf Party and BSP which handled three hopefuls each had two applicants as crorepatis. Out of 123 independents, 14 were crorepatis. “The manner in which cash is being spent to win the decisions, there is not really any uncertainty left that basic man can challenge surveys,” said Parvinder Kittna of the Association for Democratic Reforms.
