BJP Got Major Electoral Bonds Share From Delhi Liquor Case Approver

According to recent data released by the Election Commission, the BJP received 66% of the Rs 52 crore electoral bonds from Sarath Chandra Reddy, an approver in the Delhi liquor policy case. Aurobindo Pharma, owned by Reddy, purchased the bonds between April 2021 and November 2023. Of these bonds, 29% went to the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) and the rest to the Telugu Desam Party (TDP).

Notably, Rs 5 crore worth of bonds were purchased by Aurobindo Pharma five days after Reddy’s arrest in November 2022, with the BJP redeeming them on November 21, 2022. In June 2023, a Delhi court allowed Reddy, a non-executive director at Aurobindo Pharma, to serve as an approver in the liquor policy case and granted him a pardon.

Delhi Education Minister Atishi referenced Reddy’s electoral bond payments, suggesting that the Enforcement Directorate’s actions were influenced by the ruling BJP.
