According to the report, Uttar Pradesh has the maximum percentage of ministers (46 percent) with pending criminal cases. Of this, 30 percent ministers have serious criminal cases like murder and attempt to murder pending against them.

Punjab has 39 percent followed by Uttarakhand with 33 percent ministers facing criminal cases.
