Accusing Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of diverting funds from NGOs of its leaders a day after the party raised Rs 50 lakh at a fundraiser here, Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today called for a probe into such events even as AAP refuted the allegations and dared the saffron party to get it investigated.

“Due to lack of transparency, common man is wondering whether donation is being received at the rate of Rs 20,000 per plate or the funds of NGOs, which belonged to AAP leaders, are being diverted,” Delhi BJP general secretary Ramesh Bidhuri told reporters here.

The BJP leader also asked AAP to reveal the names of all the persons who had attended and donated for the party in such programmes.

He said a delegation of BJP leaders will soon meet Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to seek a probe into these fund-raising programmes.

AAP refuted the allegations saying it had organised only a transparent fund-raising programme.

“AAP is proud of organsing such transparent fund-raising programme and we challege them to get it probed from Income Tax department and any authority concerned,” said an AAP spokesperson.

AAP had raised Rs 50 lakh at a fundraising lunch organised the party’s traders wing here yesterday, the entry fee for which was Rs 20,000.

In a similar event held in Mumbai last Thursday, the party had fetched Rs 91 lakh, taking the total to Rs 1.41 crore in just two such events.

          Appreciate AAP's transparent and honest Fundraising efforts. My Uncle who runs a SME Buisness in Delhi too attended and donated. He finds Arvind Kejriwal a visionary leader and predicts will be PM one day! BJP and Cong should reveal their sources of Funds like AAP has done on their webiste.100% transparency

            BJP has no need for such measures. They just have to call up India Inc and Global Inc. whenever they need funds and it will come in the desired quany and desired color.

                As AAP has already dared BJP to carry out Investigation, THE NATION WOULD LIKE TO KNOW, Both BJP & CONG. to share the list of Donor to Supreme Court, Which earlier corrupt BJP & CONG. had denied. Being Arun Jaitly as a Lawyer should file a PIL in SC to conduct a court monitoring enquiry about all political funding. It is surprised to see, BOTH BJP & CONG. had accepted donation from Black Money account Holder. Will MODI return Back????

                  The Question is similiar to allegation made by BJP & CONG. last election about AAP foreign funding to give an impression or creat a doubt amongst the AAM AADMI. At the end, it is observed by Supreme Court that BJP is primafacie guilty and violated FEMA rules in accepting huge foreign funds from UK. Now they have to submit their response or face punitive Action from Supreme Court.

                          Dear BJP, lets have a for tat. You disclose your books and sources and AAP will do the same. I think even your (BJP) supporters know that you won't be able to do that.

                            Will BJP take up the challenge thrown by AK to investigate into their fund raising or will turn their back on it and thereby prove that they are all the birds of the same feather!!!! If BJP has any guts, I think they should investigate.
