Oxford University Press

A minister must not only be honest and incorruptible, he must also appear to possess these qualities. The article gives several examples of ministers, in UK and India, who resigned after the court or the Parliament passed strictures against them. Some took the responsibility of bungling done by their department. There are however several cases where ministers deny on wrong doing or brazenly hang on to their positions despite evidence to the contrary. It has often been seen that prime ministers have tried to protect or shield their colleagues.
