Vedanta made huge donations to both Congress and BJP


 

 

2012-07-28 -The cat is finally out of the bag the Vedanta group has given donation to the tune of `850 crore to the Congress party and `440 crore to the BJP. No sane person or company parts with such huge amounts without getting back something in return. There’s no such thing as a free meal.

Now it is quite clear why political parties go soft on mining companies. It is now also clear why both the major parties just seem to go through the motions when illegal mining is discussed in the assembly. You do not bite the hand that feeds you. It is quite clear why subsequent governments have turned a Nelson’s eye to illegal mining. Even if the local government is determined to take action the high command of both the parties will not allow it. In the end both the parties are happy and smug and it is the State of Goa and its people who are ultimately paying the price for these donations.

That Mining company donations to BJP or for that matter any party ruling the state will have no bearing on government decisions is something hard to swallow and will be believed only by the village idiot ! The very fact that the Vedanta group has given donations to both the main political parties makes it clear that this is not a donation based on the ideology of a political party. The donation is made on pure commercial reasons and with a quid pro quo in mind.

It is time that people wake up to the fact that mineral wealth belongs to the state and not to any political party and thus the benefits of such wealth should go to the people.
