The ruling BJP’s election expenses in 2022-23 were Rs 1,092 crore, a massive 5.68 times more than opposition Congress’ Rs 192 crore, which it spent on elections during the period under consideration.

According to the annual audited reports of the two principal recognised national parties, submitted to the Election Commission of India (ECI), even in terms of contributions, the BJP, which is currently in power at the Centre, is way ahead of the Congress.

As per its audit reports, the saffron party received Rs 2,120 crore contribution during the fiscal 2022-23, which is eight times more than that of Rs 268 crore received by the Congress. The BJP received nearly Rs 1,294 crore through electoral bonds in 2022-23, which was seven times more than what the Congress got in the same period i.e. Rs 171 crore. The Congress had received Rs 236 crore through electoral bonds in 2021-22.
