AAP dares BJP to disclose details of its funding

Panaji, May 23: The Goa unit of AAP today accused the ruling BJP of accepting donations from undisclosed sources and challenged it to make details of its funding public.

"I would like to challenge him (BJP MLA Vishnu Wagh) to come on public platform with accounts of BJP and I will come with the accounts of AAP, let the public see who is hiding what," AAP Goa Secretary Walmiki Naik said here. Wagh, who is the Deputy Speaker of Goa Assembly, had earlier alleged that AAP's funding was dubious.


"The accusation has come from a party (BJP) whose 80 per cent donations comes from unknown sources," Naik said. "(The source of) every single rupee of AAP is revealed on our website. BJP is using the rule that cash donations below Rs 25,000 are not required to be identified, to mask its donations from undisclosed sources," the AAP leader said.

BJP's allegation was a "sign of its fear" following Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's successful rally in Panaji yesterday, he said.
