Đảng đối lập ở Ấn Độ phải đối mặt với làn sóng rắc rối khi cuộc bỏ phiếu đến gần

vài tuần trước cuộc bầu cử quan trọng, người đứng đầu đảng bị bắt vì người ủng hộ ông nói là những cáo buộc bịa đặt và đảng khác cho biết họ mất quyền truy cập vào quỹ của mình

The head of one of India’s leading opposition parties was arrested in dramatic fashion on Thursday, the same day another party said it had been blocked from access to its bank accounts — actions taken by the government of Narendra Modi, critics say, to put his rivals at a disadvantage (đối thủ gặp bất lợi) before a pivotal general election in April.

The leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, Arvind Kejriwal, was taken into custody late on Thursday at his home in New Delhi, where hundreds of protesters had gathered to protest his arrest by the federal financial crime agency. Mr. Kejriwal, who is also the chief minister of the national capital region of New Delhi, was arrested on allegations of corruption (cáo buộc tham nhũng) involving the city’s liquor policy. His party’s leaders say the charges are fraudulent.

Under the policy, the Delhi government allowed private vendors (nhà cung cấp tư nhân) to make all liquor sales in the city, a departure from earlier regulations that permitted a mix of public and private vendors. The central government accuses officials of Mr. Kejriwal’s party of getting kickbacks.

The issue of political financing (tài chính chính trị) has exploded in India in recent weeks. The country’s top court recently forced the government-owned State Bank of India to release a list of all those who had made anonymous political donations through a financing mechanism known as “electoral bonds,” removing a veil of secrecy that opposition groups had long argued was helping those in power.
