Watching the money flow - The Hindu

This is the first time, perhaps,
a serious analysis of the implications of ceiling on election expenditure is
being attempted by a newspaper. So far, perhaps till April 9, 2014 when
Narendra Modi declared that he was married, media did not take declarations
made while filing nominations by prospective legislators, very seriously!
If there is a will, there may not
be any insurmountable hurdle in infusing austerity in election expenditure by
candidates and political parties. At the present stage of technological
development, messages(and images) can be reached to audience without anyone
physically traveling places. Therefore, gradually, we should move towards less
journeys for such purposes. Except for occasional ‘social’ meetings, government
and even private organisations should endeavor to bring down travel
expenditure. This will indirectly help to bring down even ‘oil’ bills.
