Small Political Parties Are A Thriving Business In UP

Interesting piece by Gangadhar S Patil & Saurabh Sharma:

As India’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh (UP) has the highest number of assembly seats in the country–404–and-fourth of all unrecognised political parties (1,786) in the country (a party can be registered but unrecognised). Among its 474 unrecognised political parties are sundry small outfits vying for seats against the bigwigs–the Bharatiya Janata Party, Samajwadi Party, Congress and Bahujan Samaj Party.

Why have these parties? They act as spoilsport for big parties by capturing some voteshare. Also they act as vehicles for money laundering. It is for nothing that UP remains the political bastion of India. In other places, people innovate across businesses, in UP the innovation is mostly seen around political affairs..

    Why blame such small money launderers they are everywhere in the country,during demonetisation RBI Staff Credit Society in Mumbai run by employees of RBI have used the society for money laundering.the said society is not linked to Income Tax.About 70 to 90 crores black money got converted through the said society.Letters written to Governor Urjit Patel must have been thrown in waste paper basket,since there are rumours top executives got their black money converted into white.
