Vajpayee opposed corporate funding of parties in 1962

NEW DELHI: Of the Rs 957 million of corporate donations to five national parties between 2012-2013 and 2015-16, Rs 706 crore – or almost three-quarters – went to the BJP, according to a report by the Association for Reforms Democratic (ADR) was recently published. At present, the BJP’s first Indian prime minister and party founding president, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, had called for a bill to ban enterprise funding. Vajpayee had transferred a bill to Rajya Sabha on August 17, 1962 for amend the Companies Act of 1956. The Amendment (Amendment) Bill to restrict the influence of money on politics was supported by all political parties, with the exception of Congress, which had an overwhelming majority in Parliament. The bill was defeated.

In explaining the purpose of introducing the bill, Vajpayee told Rajya Sabha that it was necessary to reduce the influence that money had on political life. He also argued that companies that hold shareholder’s money did not have a moral right to finance political parties because shareholders do not subscribe to the company’s views. The bill says that funds should come in the form of contributions from party members and citizens who have sympathized with the cause. Speaking at the end of a three-day debate on the problem, Vajpayee said: “There will be no capitalists who donate to Congress just because they agree with the policies of Congress … They do not to see the flowering of a ideology, but to promote their interests. ”

The speech and debate are part of a book on Vajpayee’s work as a deputy called “The Constructive Parliamentary”, edited by his close collaborator, NM Ghatate.Adr, a non-profit organization, has consistently demanded transparency and full disclosure in political financing. But recent changes in the law allowing entry of funds from foreign companies and the introduction of electoral ties by the NDA government have made donations to political parties rather than less opaque, activists say.
The RS 957 crore corporate donations received by political parties in the four years from 2012-2013 by the end of 2015-16 was two and a half times the Rs 379 crore collected during the previous seven years between 2004-05 and 2011-12.

The analysis of corporate grants between 2004-2005 and 2011-2012 by ADR shows that BJP received the largest amount of corporate funds – Rs 192.47 crore – which accounted for 85% of total donations to the party. BJP received a total of Rs 226.46 crore in donations. The second Congress received Rs 182.56 crore, of which 92% or Rs 172.25 crore came from companies. Data from the past 11 years show that Congress has the highest total revenue of Rs 3,982.09 crore between 2004-05 and 2014-15, that is, 42.92% of total revenue of 6 parties at the same time. BJP has the second highest income of Rs 3,272.63 crore, while CPM reported third highest income of Rs 892.99 crore.

1993 Mumbai Blasts Case: Why Abu Salem Got Life Sentence, While Yakub Memon Was Hanged

New Delhi: OP Chatwal, the Director General retired polls (DGI), the ICC, recalls how “Arsalan Mohsin Ali” (Abu Salem), a national “Pakistan” was extradited with “Sana Malik Kamal” (Monica Bedi) to India from Lisbon, Portugal in November 2005. Chatwal was the man who led the eight-member CBI team in Lisbon to bring Salem and Monica to Mumbai. Speaking to News18, he remembers that Salem had used the false identity of a Pakistani citizen to escape the hanging in India and how a change was made to the Indian Extradition Act 1962 to facilitate extradition.

“We had to assure Portugal that he would not be sentenced to death, and without that security he could not have been extradited.” Once life imprisonment occurs in Portugal, he can not be arrested over the age of 25. He was convicted of article 123 of the CPI combined with 302 and TADA Article 32. The maximum penalty in these sections is death but Salem can not receive death due to the amendment of the law in 1993, “Chatwal said.

“It was brought from a country that prohibited capital punishment. The 1993 amendment to the Indian Extradition Act of 1962 and article 34 (c) was necessary because the Indian Government faced the problems of extradition of Salem from a country that had banned the death penalty, so this change served as a guarantee for these countries, “Chatwal News18 said.

Yakub Memon, brother of Tiger Memon’s main escort, was hanged in 2015, and the others served or are in service. Among the important cases that occupied Chatwal was the Indian piracy IC-421, which shook in August 1984 at the height of Punjab militancy. Chatwal and his team covered the six terrorists and assured them they were incarcerated. The Bombay Bomb investigation of 1993 has been prolonged, Chatwal said, and the process began after it issued a notice of “Red Corner” against Salem.

“We have been looking for it all over the world and have been informed that it was in Portugal in 2002 and that we have contacted the Portuguese forces,” said former CBI survey expert. The main obstacle for the police was the double criminality aspect, since Salem had falsified its identity in Portugal. After overcoming this obstacle, the government found in the fact that there is no sentence of death in Portugal and that life imprisonment is only 25 years.

“We need strong identity documents to prove that he was in fact Salem because he had changed his identity and nationality.” On the basis of entries given by us, Salem was arrested by the Portuguese police. discovering his identity, had a fake Pakistani passport in the name of Arsalan Mohsin Ali. But because of his fingerprints, his identity has been established, with that of Monica Bedi. ” He also used a fake passport on behalf of Sana Malik Kamal and was tried by a different court of the IWC in Hyderabad, “said Chatwal.

After a long legal battle, the extradition of Salem occurred in 2005. “Our request for expulsion was not accepted by the Government of Portugal, and after the law reform we obtained and was taken to India in November 2005,” said Chatwal.
