New Delhi, Jan 1: As the battle for Assembly polls is intensifying in Delhi, the Aam Admi Party is coming up with ideas to collect donations for the party.
After former Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal organised lunch, dinner and tea programmes for raising funds for the party, senior leader and candidate from Patparganj constituency Manish Sisodia has now decided to meet people in his constituency to for collecting funds.
Sisodia, who is considered as second-in-command in AAP, has reportedly promised to visit all donours in coming under his assembly.
The party's volunteers have started calling and texting the people in Patparganj area and are asking the voters to support the party by donating.
The message sent to voters reads, "I need donations to contest Delhi elections. Please support for clean politics. To contribute SMS me your name...add @8588833457. I'll come and meet you. Manish Sisodia, AAP."
As per AAP, Sisodia is even getting positive responses from the voters who are replying to him with their address and contact details and are willing to contribute for the party.
The party has decided to carry reciept books during its door-to-door campaigns, it will be then when Sisodia will meet the donours and collect funds as well.
Last week, a similar fund raising even was organised by former Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti in which several donours met with Kejriwal during tea and donated for the party.
During this high tea fund-raising event attendees were charged Rs 20,000 each. Defending party's move to organise a "Tea with Kejriwal" to collect funds for Delhi polls, Bharti had said that it is a part of their initiative of playing clean politics.
AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal has already attended fund-raising dinners at Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru.
The party has set a target to collect Rs 30 crore in funds ahead of Delhi polls.
