The next phase of the Lok Sabha polls in West Bengal for six seats has 15 candidates with criminal cases and six multimillionaires in the fray. Of the 72 candidates, only 11 are women, 16 are graduates, 19 have post-graduate degrees, while one is an illiterate. Compared to the past three phases of the polls in the state, this has the least number of multimillionaires, but the most number of candidates with criminal antecedents.
