AVAM a breakaway volunteer group of the Aam Aadmi Party, yesterday had accused the Arvind Kejriwal-led party of receiving Rs 2 crore last year through four “dubious” companies.
The AAP called it a conspiracy to tarnish its image ahead of the February 7 Delhi Assembly elections.AAP has rejected the charges and demanded a Supreme Court-monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe funding of all three major parties, BJP, Congress and AAP in Delhi polls.
“We invite the government to order an investigation before the February 7 polls itself by any of its agencies be it CBI, ED, IB, Police, Army and subsequently arrest us if we have done anything wrong, AAP has taken all its donations through cheques to ensure transparency and also insists on PAN card details for the transactions,” senior party leader Yogendra Yadav told a press conference.
We’ve taken all donations by cheque.. We have a BJP government (at the Centre). Let it investigate. Please punish me if anything wrong is found,” AAP Chief Arvind Kejriwal said when asked about the allegations.
