Dear S/Shri Rajiv Kumar/ Pandey/ Goel,

The apex court of India has held the Electoral Bonds scheme being non-transparent to be violative of the Cinstitution. 

I understand that large amounts are still lying in the accounts of the political parties including BJP, the biggest beneficiary of the scheme. Since one is not sure whether the amounts thus lying with the political parties have accrued from genuine sources compliant with the national interest and whether some ouf those funds may have accrued even through questionable means, as the custodian for conducting elections in a free and fair manner, the Commission should invoke it’s authority under Article 324 and freeze all those funds to make sure that not a single rupee obtained under the scheme is used in the coming elections. 

This should be ordered by the Commission irrespective of whether any announcement of the election schedule is made or not 

I hope that the Commission rises to the occasion, stands by the people of the country and takes action forthwith.


Yours sincerely,

E A S Sarma

Former Secretary to the Govt of India
