I will quit movement if corruption of Rs 10 is proved:Kejriwal

Arvind Kejriwal
Ghaziabad, Nov 1: Facing allegations of financial misconduct, Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal said that he will quit the anti-graft movement if "corruption of even Rs 10 is proved" against him.

On the day the movement's audit report for six months starting April was released, Kejriwal also dared the Congress and the BJP to make public information about all the donations received by the parties. Claiming that allegations were levelled against him and other Team Anna members to weaken the movement, he said, "I challenge those making the allegations, our accounts are on the web site, if they prove corruption of even Rs 10, I will leave the movement and surrender for being punished."

Speaking to reporters at the office of India Against Corruption, he said, "Congress had recently made public funds received by it. If the party wants to maintain a clean image, it should release information about all the money received by it from other sources". He also asked the opposition BJP to follow suit.

Kejriwal's statement came even as Congress leader Digvijay Singh targeted him again. "For Anna's Super Team. Na Khata na Bahi. Jo Kejriwal kahe woh sahi!" (No accounts, no books, whatever Kejriwal says is right), Singh said on a popular micro-blogging website.

The AICC general secretary was apparently reacting to allegations against Kejriwal of siphoning off Rs 80 lakh from India Against Corruption to his trust and Team Anna's decision to return Rs 42.55 lakh to donors who "did not provide their complete details and their sources of funding".
