SEZ, ILR & Corporate Funding of Parties
It apears that under the influence of some vested interestes Ministers like Manmohan Singh, Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Buddhadev Bhattacharya and Narendra Modi wish to get on the luxury bus of some sort even as farmers and soldiers continue to commit suicide at an unprecedented rate?
The manifestoes of Indian National Congress, Bhartiya Janata Party, Communist Party of India (Marxist) and the Common Minimum Program of UPA call for provision of state funding of the elections.
All SEZ approvals and MOUs on Interlinking of Rivers (ILR) before the provision for state funding of elections are suspect. Aren't they?
