 BJP spent Rs 36.70 crore in Punjab in 2022 while the party spent Rs 7.43 crore in the 2017 assembly elections. Yet the party managed to win only two seats as against three in 2017. In Goa, the BJP spent Rs 19.07 crore in elections this year, which is more than four times its expenditure of Rs 4.37 crore in 2017.


 The BJP's electoral expenditure in the 2022 assembly elections in Manipur and Uttarakhand was Rs 23.52 crore (Rs 7.86 crore in 2017) and Rs 43.67 crore (Rs 23.48 crore in 2017) respectively. A major chunk of the BJP's total election expenditure in five states was spent on travel, public meetings, processions and campaigns for its leaders. The party also spent around Rs 12 crore on virtual campaigns in the assembly elections of five states.

At the same time, the state-wise details of the election expenditure of the Congress party are not available. Congress has informed about spending Rs 15.67 crore on virtual campaigns through social media platforms/apps and other means.

Political parties contesting Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha elections are required to keep an account of all money collected in the form of cash, check or draft or in kind from the date of announcement of election made by the Election Commission to the date of the end of the election. Along with this, they also have to submit the details of their election expenses to the Election Commission within 75 days of the assembly elections and 90 days after the Lok Sabha elections.
