The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday intensified its attack on Arvind Kejriwal by releasing another poster mocking the Aam Aadmi Party chief.
The latest advertisement takes a dig at Kejriwal over alleged black money funding to his party.
Here’s BJP’s latest ad:
The BJP’s ad was released a day after AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM) alleged a massive scam in the funding of AAP, a claim that was later rejected by Arvind Kejriwal-led party which said that all transactions were legitimate.
AVAM is a group of volunteers who had broken away from the AAP in August last year to voice opinion against several aspects of AAP, including lack of “Swaraj” within the organisation.
Addressing a press conference at the Press Club of India, the AVAM claimed that four bogus companies have made donations amounting to Rs 50 lakhs each to the AAP.
AVAM said that its volunteers had checked out each of the addresses of the donor companies as mentioned in the AAP website and found out that no such companies were running out of the locations.
AVAM added that one of the companies was registered at a address which was located in a shanty.
A similar controversial BJP advertisement purportedly targeting AAP chief’s “gotra” triggered a war of words with both the parties rushing to the Election Commission to file complaints against each other on Monday.
While Kejriwal slammed the BJP for having “crossed their limit” by “attacking” his gotra (clan) in the advertisement that appeared in several newspapers and thereby denigrating the entire Agarwal community, the BJP accused him of giving casteist overtone to the issue.
