it should be easier to prosecute a chief minister, but most times it seems like the law treats him/her like a god. most times, it seems like it also treats people who have committed murder in public, like in mirchpur, also like gods.
why does the governor (the central government, actually) have to okay any action against the karnataka chief minister? in our polity, one has to be at the very top to decide on these things: to wield any real power. but in mirchpur, why was the trial taken out of haryana? and the accused moved out of haryana? because in mirchpur/haryana society, the jats wield some real power.
both, indian polity and society, are pyramidal structures. just like the caste system.
