AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said his party will file a criminal defamation case against BJP which has alleged that AAP was diverting funds from NGOs of its leaders.
Former Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal also challenged the BJP to disclose the list of their donors as his party has done and accused the saffron party of “terrorising” those who have donated money to AAP.
He also took a jibe at the media for “arbitrary coverage” of the allegations levelled by the BJP.
“I have been challenging BJP and Congress to disclose their list of donors (the way we do). Would media give similar coverage to us? For the first time, a political party (is) trying transparent funding n disclosing its list of donors.
BJP trying to terrorise our donors. Fair?” the AAP chief posted on Twitter.
AAP had organised lunch for traders, with an entry fee of Rs.20,000. The party collected a whopping sum of Rs.50 lakh.
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.
Accusing AAP of diverting funds from NGOs of its leaders, Delhi BJP had on Monday called for a probe into such events.
