A section of social media was also accused of BJP getting donations from the Pakistan company. One user tweeted, "Pakistan-based company, Hub Power Company, donated Electoral Bonds weeks after the Pulwama attack! When the entire country was mourning the loss of 40 brave soldiers, someone was enjoying funding from Pakistan. Now you know why no proper investigation of Pulwama attacks was ever done & no culprits are caught yet."

Moreover, the Samajwadi Party also tweeted the same and claimed that the donation was made after the Pulwama attack.

The Samajwadi Party tweeted, "Pakistani company Hub Power Company donated Rs 95 lakh to BJP during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. At the same time, our soldiers were also killed in Pulwama. I have never seen a traitorous party like BJP. Why does BJP love Pakistani companies so much? This was the reason why BJP wanted to hide the donations."
