No Place for Electoral Bonds to Hide?

No Place for Electoral Bonds to Hide?

Tuesday, May 14: The Supreme Court didn’t mince words today, – they promised Prashant Bhushan that the electoral bonds controversy won’t be swept under the rug!

Bhushan, in a classic move, asked for a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to dig into all the juicy details of quid pro quo, corruption, and kickbacks revealed by those notorious electoral bonds. Justice Sanjiv Khanna, keeping it cool as a cucumber, told Bhushan that the petition is in the hands of the Chief Justice of India, who’ll pick a date and assemble the dream team to tackle this hot mess.

Justice Sanjiv Khanna, before whom Mr. Bhushan made an oral mentioning for early listing, said the petition was before the Chief Justice of India, who would allot a date and a Bench for it.

As Bhushan, accompanied by advocates Cheryl D’Souza and Neha Rathi, laid out the case before the bench, you could almost hear the gears turning in the judges’ heads. The petition, filed by Common Cause and the Centre for Public Interest Litigation, didn’t mince words. It pointed fingers at the big guns – the CBI, the ED, and the I-T Department – accusing them of cozying up to corruption like old pals at a barbecue.

According to the petition, it’s not just your run-of-the-mill corruption; we’re talking about a whole circus of collusion involving company bigwigs, government officials, and political party honchos. And guess what? Even the agencies meant to keep these shenanigans in check seem to have caught the bug! It’s like a game of corruption hot potato, and everyone’s desperate not to get caught holding it.

Cue the dramatic reveal: reports from The Hindu and other media outlets dropping bombshells left, right, and center. Turns out, those shiny electoral bonds weren’t just innocent gifts; they were more like favors exchanged in a high-stakes game of political poker. Looks like the cat’s out of the bag, and it’s not going back in without a fight.

Now, imagine Common Cause and the Centre for Public Interest Litigation, with Bhushan leading the charge, pointing fingers at the big investigative guns like the CBI, ED, and I-T Department, accusing them of playing patty-cake with corruption! They’re not holding back – alleging that these agencies have cozy ties with the ruling party’s donors, turning a blind eye to potential monkey business. It’s like a real-life game of ‘Clue’, where everyone from the company big shots, to government officials, to political parties is a suspect!

And hold onto your hats, because The Hindu and other ‘sincere’ media folks have been doing some serious digging. They’re like the Sherlock Holmes of journalism, uncovering a treasure trove of dirt on those shady electoral bonds. It’s like a scandalous soap opera, with corporate wallahs showering political parties with bonds in exchange for favors. Oh, the drama! So, buckle up, folks – looks like the court is gearing up for the legal showdown of the century!
