Believe it or not, but money is raining for BJP as if they have made a big hole in the Kuber’s treasure and why not when the command of the country is in the hand of such a dynamic figure money just flows towards him like magnate attracts iron. No, we are not claiming this, but this has been revealed by ADR ( Association for Democratic Reforms) in its report published on Wednesday, May 30, 2018. The report says the total donation received by BJP in the last year has reached a whopping sum of ₹ 523 Cr with 593 percent.
Interestingly, 6 national parties of the country including BJP, Congress, NCP, CPI, CPM, and TMC have received ₹ 589.39 Cr rupees in the year 2016-2017 excluding any amount less than 20 thousand. BJP tops this list by getting the whacking sum of ₹ 532.27 Cr, which is 9 times higher than the amount rest of the parties received. Second is Congress, which has received ₹ 41.90 Cr.
It is noteworthy that parties have to inform the Election Commission for getting any donation more than ₹ 20 thousand. BSP again in the twelfth year has claimed that they have not received any donation more than ₹ 20K. The number of people donated for BJP is 1194 whole congress received from 594 people.
The most shocking part of this whole scenario is 45% of the sources of donation are unknown. It means a huge amount of ₹ 710.80 Cr. was received from such sources. That means 45% of the total income of all parties. Out of this fund, BJP got ₹ 464.94 Cr and ₹ 126.12 Cr.
In 2016-17, the total income of the 7 national parties was ₹ 1559.17 Cr. This amount came from the following sources:
