It is not good for democracy -they are donating for double benefit -one to save tax and other is hidden to get political benefit to increase the rate of their products and to get subsidy on land they need and on raw material

The prohibition on business houses giving donations to political parties had been tried inthe past. But the onlydifference it made was thatr the donations were being given underhand. Like Napoleon's armies political parties also march on their stomachs Soldiers may fight on empty stomachs but they are going to have their fill by loot and plunder. Is it not beter to provide for them as Napoleon did?
