Crony capitalism must be banished from India. The most fundamental condition for this would be to reform the system of electoral funding. Unless regulated, undeclared payments will be made by corporates to political people and businesses will demand quid pro quo. Thus, the basic condition for ending crony capitalism is to reform our election funding system.

If this happens, their names will not appear in future scams like the Panama Papers.
