Probe agencies misused for donations: Congress

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh

The Congress on Friday alleged that probe agencies were “misused” to extort donations for the BJP from private companies and demanded a Supreme Court-monitored probe into the matter.


Addressing a press conference, Congress general secretary in-charge communications Jairam Ramesh alleged that at least 30 companies, which donated a total of nearly Rs 335 crore to the BJP between financial years 2018-19 and 2022-23, faced action by central agencies during that period.


Ramesh said Congress general secretary in-charge organisation K C Venugopal on Friday wrote to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman over the issue.


Ramesh also asked if the government would come up with a “white paper” on the BJP’s finances, not just the sources, but how corporate firms were “coerced” to donate, by misusing investigative agencies against them.
