The CPI (M) on Friday welcomed the interim order passed by the Supreme Court on the electoral bonds. The party’s Polit Bureau in a statement said the order will bring in some degree of accountability.

The CPI (M) is one of the petitioners in the case.

The statement said the changes in the law which was rushed without a comprehensive discussion in Parliament was aimed at removing the limits of corporate funding of political parties, particularly at the time of elections, while making it completely anonymous.

“The changes would have made the entire system prone to crony capitalism with a clear basis for quid pro quo with the ruling party,” it said. It also slammed the Attorney General’s statement that “it is not voters’ concern to know where the money comes from.”
