“He said that AAP has been caught red-handed. If Finance Minister believes so then he should initiate action against AAP. All the investigating agencies are under him. If he believes we were caught red handed then why has he not yet taken any action,” AAP leader Ashutosh asked.
Earlier, Jaitley questioned AAP on the “dubious funding” saying political donations made through cheques “do not purify the transaction” and wondered what party chief Kejriwal would have done as a revenue official to deal with it.
Another AAP leader Yogendra Yadav said if the allegations that party leaders were involved in money laundering were true, then why was the government not taking action.
“Either he (Jaitley) does not believe in his own allegations or his party’s allegations or he is just being clever as usual,” he said.
AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM), a breakaway group of the Aam Aadmi Party, had accused the Kejriwal-led party of receiving Rs 2 crore last year through four “dubious” companies. The AAP had strongly rejected the allegations.
