Fear of external interference in elections! BJP and Congress have got millions of foreign donations

As the Lok Sabha election approaches, the fear has reinforced that foreign interference can take place in Indian elections. Changes in the FCRA Act have made this apprehension stronger. This fear cannot be called in vain because both the BJP and the Congress have got foreign donations of crores of rupees to the big political parties.

The Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) has received 34 such cases of foreign donations to political parties. Between 2003-04 and 2011-12, 19 cases of BJP and 15 have come in front of Congress. All these funds could be possible due to this because the government had made changes to FCRA 2010 and 1976. Foreign companies such as Indian subsidiary of Vedanta, Dao Chemicals, in this, have received both political parties from Rs 1 lakh to Rs 14.5 crore. In these years, BJP got Rs 19.4 crore from a foreign source and Rs 9.83 crore from Congress.

Why is it necessary to stop such funding

Political parties are considered to be the protector of democracy. They fight elections, form government and make laws. Therefore, the donations given to them are of great significance in terms of the operation of our democracy and the government. The Law Commission had given three major reasons for its reforms in the 2015 election on election reforms, that is why it is necessary to improve the funding system of political parties and bring transparency. The first thing is that money power hinders the system of equality in political parties and reduces the purity of political parties. Rich Candidates and political parties get more chance to win the elections.

Secondly, black money, bribery and transaction corruption have already dominated politics, which helps the candidates run their election campaign. The commission had laid the foundation of this quote by the Supreme Court to strengthen its point of view, "It seems that the source of some electoral fund is without accountable criminal wealth, in return for which they get protection. Similarly, there is black money in business groups, who hope to get higher returns in lieu of commission given on this investment, bribe or contracts. '

Third, uncontrolled or under-controlled electoral funding promotes two types of things. A-industry \ Private institutions use the funds to make sure the rules and regulations are softened. The money used for the funding of By-elections ultimately helps in achieving "favorable policies".

However, it must be kept in mind that it is not so easy to overturn the change that has been brought in the rules. The previous NDA government had tried to completely reverse the order of the Supreme Court in 2002, in this order the Supreme Court had said that all the candidates were given details of their educational and property related details as well as criminal cases filed in the affidavit of the election. Information will also be given. The NDA government first tried to stop it from the ordinance and then brought a bill for it in Lok Sabha, but when it came to knowing to the Supreme Court, it stopped the amendment as unconstitutional.
