Headlines: Piyush Goyal slams Electoral Bonds critics, says those have been “rejected” by people


Union minister and Bharatiya Janata Party leader Piyush Goyal on Thursday said electoral bonds “brought in honest money” in politics. The minister made the remark hours after the Congress protested in the Lok Sabha, saying that through the issuance of electoral bonds, the government had made corruption “official”.
The congress’ allegations were based on report by HuffPost India which said that the Modi govt rolled out electoral bond scheme despite opposition from RBI and Electon Commission of India.
Goyal claimed the critics of electoral bonds were an “alliance of the defeated and dejected corrupt politicians who do not want clean, tax-paid transparent money to fund elections”. This was the same “lobby” that had made false allegations in the Rafale deal, adding that the “Supreme Court, too quashed their false claims”.
Defending the Modi govt he said, “The Election Commission has seized crores of rupees from Congress leaders. They have been corrupt and have used black money extensively. BJP remains the only party to fight against the problem of black money.” #ElectoralBonds #PiyushGoyal #PMO
