In India's 75-year history of Lok Sabha elections, the Election Commission of India (ECI) has recorded the highest-ever seizures of inducements. In a press statement, the ECI stated that even before polls started, the commission had already seized an incredible Rs 4,650 crore, or Rs 100 crore per day since March 1. Compared to the Rs 3,475 crore that was taken during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, this is a 34 per cent rise. “With general elections 2024 underway, the ECI is on track for the highest-ever seizures of inducements recorded in the country's 75-year history of Lok Sabha elections”, ECI stated. Cash, alcohol, narcotics, precious metals, and other freebies are included in this total. Notably, around 45% of the seizures are of drugs and narcotics, which are the subject of special investigation by the commission. Assembly Elections 2023: Cash, Liquor, Drugs Worth Over Rs 1760 Crore Seized in Five Poll-Going States, Says ECI.
