Editorial with Sujit Nair: BJP’s Monopoly In Electoral Bonds

The BJP has gathered a whopping 76 per cent of the electoral bonds sold in the financial year 2019-20, shows data accessed by NDTV from the Election Commission. Altogether electoral bonds worth ₹ 3,355 crore were sold in 2019-20, of which the BJP income was ₹ 2,555 crore. This was a 75 per cent per cent jump on the ₹ 1,450 crore it received through the electoral bonds the previous year. In the same period, the collections of the Congress — the BJP’s biggest political rival — dropped by 17 per cent. In 2018-19, the Congress had received ₹ 383 crore from electoral bonds. In 2019-10, it received ₹ 318 crore – 9 per cent of the total electoral bonds. In this episode of the Editorial, our Managing Editor Mr Sujit Nair shares his take on the matter.
