Total election funds must be disclosed

The petitions seeking an interim stay to the electoral bonds and the related constitutional provisions are not taken into consideration yet.

The Supreme Court has already clarified in various judgements that it is the democratic right of the voters to know the election funding and expenditure details of the political parties.

But still, the situation persists where the connection between the election funding and the policies of the government are kept hidden from the knowledge of the citizens.

As of now, it is possible to create fake companies and unknown transactions can be easily carried out through those bank accounts.

The demand is very correct to disclose the election funding details and expenditure of the political parties so that bank statements can be verified with the affidavits filed.

The political parties should disclose their expenditure details through the electoral bonds. Similarly, all organisations should disclose their funding details to one or more parties.
