Indian Media has gone to town claiming Congress sells its way to Rs 600 cr corpus
The oldest political party, Congress, generated Rs 598.4 crore during 2007-08 and 2008-09 through the sale of coupons
Now this gets me thinking….
India's total population in 2009 was 119.8 crore. lets do some maths
Option 1: Every Indian Citizen would have brought coupon worth Rs 4.99.
Option 2: Since it is not practically possible for every Indian to pay Rs 5 to INC, lets assume 37% of Indians i.e Vote percentage of INC bought coupons. That would mean 44 Crore Indian brought coupons worth Rs 15 from congress!!
I leave it to readers to make their own judgment.
