perform essential functions like providing primary education or sanitary toilets (Source: PTI photo/file) Top News The requirement of a minimum educational qualification to contest various local body elections in Rajasthan has received much attention However this measure is only one of many constitutionally suspect eligibility criteria These disqualifications range from outright discrimination to those that exclude in the guise of progressive social reform Such exclusions in law severely disadvantage marginalised groups and undermine political participation in local self-governance However what has been most disappointing is the deferential approach of the Supreme Court in this context As examples of invidious discrimination the relevant legislations in Odisha and Rajasthan disqualify those suffering from leprosy from contesting elections to panchayati raj institutions (PRIs) Tuberculosis is another ground for disqualification in Odisha Legislations in Maharashtra Andhra Pradesh Odisha and Tamil Nadu prohibit individuals termed as “deaf-mute” from contesting local body elections or continuing as members However Rajasthan’s legislation is particularly discriminatory towards the disabled disqualifying anyone with a “physical or mental defect or disease rendering him incapable of work” Other legislative provisions seek to further a social agenda through eligibility criteria By requiring candidates to have sanitary latrines the legislations in Karnataka Maharashtra and Rajasthan attempt to address open defecation while promoting public health and sanitation Candidates with more than two children are disqualified in Andhra Pradesh Rajasthan Madhya Pradesh Odisha and Maharashtra Himachal Pradesh and Haryana repealed such a requirement in 2005 and 2006 respectively Rajasthan is the only state that has a minimum education requirement though Odisha requires candidates to have the ability to read and write Odia In Madhya Pradesh a rule until 2013 disqualified individuals married below the legal age from entering the state public services While the blatantly discriminatory disqualifications do not pose difficult constitutional questions the question that arises is: In what circumstances can the state use eligibility criteria to further a progressive social aim For example would the criterion concerning the ability to read and write be more acceptable than formal educational qualifications Should the state be permitted to promote family planning by requiring representatives to have no more than two children Is it any more acceptable to pursue the goal of ending open defecation through the requirement of sanitary latrines Are we to say that the state must be free to adopt any measure while pursuing a progressive social agenda and it is not for the court to judge those means In the context of these examples the SC has decided two issues on either end of the spectrum and its approach is quite revealing In Javed vs State of Haryana the SC decided the constitutionality of Haryana’s two-child norm for elections to PRIs Addressing the challenge that such a disqualification discriminated against those with more than two children the court argued that it was constitutional for the legislature to pursue its population control policy through such disincentives?
