The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
Reports have appeared in a section of the media regarding the election funding and expenditure of the CPI(M). This is nothing but disinformation designed to discredit the Party. Contrary to the allegation, all donations and funds received during the period of the Lok Sabha elections have been reflected in the statement of election accounts submitted to the Election Commission of India. This includes donations and contributions received from all over the country including Tamilnadu. Nothing is hidden as falsely alleged.
Secondly, the statement of accounts has given the full expenditure incurred by the Party during the elections. The “amount” stated in the media report as Party expenditure is concocted.
All this can be verified when the statement of accounts will be put up on the official website of the Election Commission of India.
