Faced with allegations of receiving funds from “dubious” companies, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday night demanded a Supreme Court-monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe funding of all three major parties in Delhi polls and said it was ready to face any action if found guilty.

Asserting that it adopted “total transparency” in its funding, AAP’s Yogendra Yadav in a late evening press conference accused BJP of attempting to influence the voters ahead of the February 7 polls by bringing out false allegations.

He was responding to allegations by AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM), a breakaway group of the Aam Aadmi Party, which accused the Kejriwal-led party of receiving Rs 2 crore last year through four “dubious” companies.

 

  “AAP demands constitution of an SIT to probe funding of all three main political parties (AAP, Congress and BJP). The SIT should be monitored by the Supreme Court as we already know how the government can manipulate a probe,” he said while daring the parties to disclose their fundings publicly.  


Yadav said “strangely instead of inquiring against AAP, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ministers are today making allegations even after sitting on the files for eight months.”

He said the party had anticipated such activities by BJP and Kejriwal had warned about it a few days ago.

 

  “Ahead of last assembly polls also, the BJP had brought out a CD which turned out to be false later. They do not allow politics of honesty,” Yadav said. “BJP today knows it does not have the courage to stand before the public. That is why they are adopting such measures,” he said, adding that if AAP had anything to hide it would not have put the funding details on its website.  


On the midnight timing of realisation of the cheques into AAP’s account, he said it was done as per an automated software which updates credit of all the cheques submitted at a particular time of each day.

The AAP also challenged the government to probe the allegations by any central investigating agency including the CBI and Enforcement Directorate.

 

  AAP leader Ashish Khetan said the party was going to write a letter to the Chief Justice of India to set up an SIT to probe funding of the three political parties. “The probe must cover complete donations of all the three parties including the ten and thousands of crores that the BJP and Congress have been receiving,” he claimed.  


“Since it is the matter of utmost importance vis-a-vis our democracy, we are writing a letter to Chief Justice of India requesting him to set up an SIT and monitor the probe,” he said.

Yadav also dared BJP President Amit Shah and Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to come to the Ramlila Maidan here with BJP’s funding details for an open debate.

 


“We are also writing to the SIT investigating the black money issue to include funding of political parties in their probe,” he said.
