  1. All these measures are chicken feed. Of course lot of complaints are circulated in the society that lot of black money is being pumped to gulf countries, Mauritius & Switzerland to receive as official investment.

    Basically the source’s & application of funds of the political parties are the big menace to India. Unless these illegal activities are stopped, economy of India won’t develop.

    It is impossible as it is clear cut all most all politicians are unclean. If they are transparent & honest they can’t survive in deteriorated Indian polity.
