The BJP's Chandan Mitra said candidates will always find ways to spend more, no matter what the limit. Congress' Abhishek Manu Singhvi said the limit should be increased but that alone is not the solution, what India needs are electoral reforms. Former Chief Election Commissioner SY Quraishi disagreed with the concept of state funding campaigns while Bharat Bhushan said it would not stop private funding. Association for Democratic Reforms founder-member Ajit Ranade feels the trick lies in picking a popular candidate, then there would be no need to spend a lot of money on campaigns.
