Supreme reacted strongly to announcing free weeks for voters

Amaravati: Elections are coming in the country which means that political parties are announcing many free boons giving the illusion that they are implementing schemes for the voters with their own funds. The Supreme Court had earlier asked the Election Commission for an explanation on the announcement of bounties to the voters. In this context, the Supreme Court took a key decision on Friday. A person named Bhattulal Jain filed a public interest litigation alleging that 6 months before the assembly elections, freebies were being distributed with taxpayers’ money. A bench comprising Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justices JB Pardiwala has sent notices to the Election Commission of India, Reserve Bank of India along with the Central, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan governments seeking an answer to this lawsuit. The petitioner alleged that the governments of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are misusing tax payers’ money to impress the voters as the assembly elections are approaching. “There is nothing more tyrannical than distributing money in the name of free government before elections, it happens every time.. Ultimately, the burden falls on the tax payers,” argued the petitioner’s lawyer in the court. With this, the bench issued notices and ordered the central, state governments and the EC to reply within four weeks.
