A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi mentioned the problem calls for detailed hearing and, for that reason, it will be taken up on April 10.

Advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for NGO Association of Democratic Reforms (ADR), alleged that thousands of crore are anonymously getting offered to political parties.

He alleged that 95 % of electoral bonds are getting offered to a single celebration that is the ruling celebration.

Lawyer Common KK Venugopal, appearing for the Centre, mentioned electoral bonds scheme was brought to verify the flow of black money into political funding.

He mentioned Bhushan was providing an election speech that 95 % of the electoral bonds have gone to ruling celebration.

The bench in lighter vein mentioned, “it is election time. We will hear on April 10”.

ADR’ application seeks remain on the Electoral Bond Scheme, 2018, which was notified by the Centre in January final year.

The BJP-led NDA government had announced electoral bonds in the earlier spending budget, claiming that the scheme would clean up political funding.
