New Delhi, Dec 03 (ANI): Former Chief Election Commissioner OP Rawat while talking to ANI said that after demonestisation it was thought that misuse of money during elections will be brought down. But it couldn't be proved. “Compared to previous elections, there were more seizures in the same states”, said OP Rawat. “It seems political class and their financiers have no dearth of money. Money used in this manner, is generally black money. As far as black money used in elections is concerned, there was no check on it”, he added. Sunil Arora succeeded OP Rawat as CEC on Sunday.
