Nearly 98% of Shiv Sena funds in 2015-16 came from Videocon, its high time corporate funding of political parties should stop!


Home appliances maker Videocon Industries appears to be the Shiv Sena's biggest benefactor. The company, part of a $5 billion, Mumbai-headquartered group, accounted for all but a fraction of the donations which the Sena has disclosed to the Election Commission of India.


A total contribution of Rs 86.84 crore was shown as received by Sena from corporates and non-corporates in 2015-16. Of this, a whopping Rs 85 crore came from VideoconBSE 0.53 %, controlled by industrialist Rajkumar Dhoot, who has represented Sena in the Rajya Sabha for three consecutive terms.


Corruption will double with Rs 2,000 notes. As far as stopping corruption is concerned, you are only looking at its demand side.

This is a whiter way for a corrupt politics. Obviously the political parties will favour Videocon in policy making and what not if Videocon is responsible for 98% of their funding!

Do realise that there is a thing called CSR, wherein its almost like a compulsion for these private players to give money to institutions which can be political parties as well.

Note though: Its all clear, there is no black money involved every deal is happening via check/ bank transfers! i see no harm in it
