Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday contributed 2,000 to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for strengthening efforts to build a ‘Viksit Bharat’. The PM made the donation through the NaMo app and shared a picture of the receipt on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“I am happy to contribute to @BJP4India and strengthen our efforts to build a Viksit Bharat. I also urge everyone to be a part of #DonationForNationBuilding through the NaMoApp!” PM Modi wrote in the X post.

PM Modi's call for the donations comes at a time when the Supreme Court, last month, in a unanimous verdict, scrapped the electoral bonds practice, terming it as “unconstitutional”. According to the five-judge bench headed by chief justice of India DY Chandrachud, the scheme which allowed anonymous funding to political parties, violated the right to information and Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution.

What is Viksit Bharat?

PM Modi's ‘Viksit Bharat @2047’ is the vision to make India a developed nation by 2047, the 100th year of independence. The vision encompasses various aspects of development, including economic growth, social progress, environmental sustainability, and good governance.
