ustice Pradeep Nandrajog and Justice Jayant Nath reserved the verdict after all the parties concluded their arguments.

The BJP and Congress claimed that Vedanta Resources is not a foreign company and, therefore, no law has been violated.

The PIL filed by NGO Association for Democratic Reforms through advocate Prashant Bhushan said ‘Britain-based Vedanta Resources and its subsidiary companies in India including Sterlite Industries, Sesa Goa and Malco have donated several crores of rupees to major political parties like the Congress and BJP’.

The PIL alleged that two parties breached the Representation of the People Act, 1951, and the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA).
