In a scathing critique of the BJP-led central government, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi denounced the electoral bond scheme as the “world’s biggest extortion racket” and attributed it as the brainchild of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Speaking at a press conference, Gandhi alleged that the scheme, which has already been rebuffed by the Supreme Court, serves as a conduit for siphoning funds to destabilize political opponents.

Citing instances of its purported misuse, Gandhi claimed that funds amassed through the scheme have been utilized to undermine political parties like Shiv Sena and NCP, leading to governmental upheavals. The timing of Gandhi’s remarks coincides with the Supreme Court’s directive to disclose data pertaining to the controversial scheme, underscoring heightened scrutiny surrounding its implementation.

The electoral bond scheme, introduced by the BJP government, has long been mired in controversy, with critics alleging opacity and the potential for corruption. Gandhi’s vocal condemnation adds fuel to the ongoing debate over electoral transparency and accountability, amplifying calls for systemic reforms. As political tensions escalate, the fate of the electoral bond scheme hangs in the balance, amidst fervent demands for greater transparency and accountability in India’s electoral processes.
