1000% OVERSPENDING BY CANDIDATES IN GUJARAT


Politicians can indeed exceed expectations when it comes to spending money on voters, splurging 1,000% higher than promised! But that applies only to campaigning, before the netas are elected. A study has shown that in the 2017 Gujarat election, candidates burnt Rs 459 per voter for outreach programmes when the Election Commission of India (ECI) cap implied that approximately Rs 45 per voter could be spent. The figures have been derived using the overall limit of Rs 28 lakh per candidate set by the ECI for campaign expenses in 2017.
