“Your scam …” Kapil Sibal targets PM Modi as SC strikes down Electoral Bond Scheme

Feb 15, 2024

New Delhi, Feb 15 (ANI): As five-judge bench of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, Justices Sanjiv Khanna, BR Gavai, JB Pardiwala and Manoj Misra delivered a unanimous verdict on Thursday, striking down the Electoral Bonds scheme as unconstitutional, senior advocate and Rajya Sabha MP Kapil Sibal trained guns at PM Modi. “So we'll get to know the bonding between those who funded and the politics of the country and also you will get to know the Quid pro quo because nobody gives these huge amounts of money without a Quid pro quo. Nobody would give an electoral bond for ten lakhs or 15 lakhs. It'll be in crores,” said Sibal while talking to ANI. “So if you've funded your political party with 5000 crores you can imagine only the rich could have done that and they must have in the process got some favours...So I think in a sense this provides for a level playing field in a democracy. And it also exposes the BJP. The prime minister keeps on saying where is the scam? Where is the scam? Where it is now Modiji right in front of your eyes your scam, this government scam," he added.
