In fact some of their candidates happen to be crorepatis.
According to a report carried by the Indian Express [read here], out of the 18 AAP affidavits uploaded on the Delhi Election Commission website, nine candidates have declared assets worth over one crore.
Amongst these, former journalist and now an AAP member Shazia Ilmi tops the list with assets belonging to her and her husband of worth Rs 30 crore. Ilmi will be contesting the December 4 elections from the RK Puram constituency.
9 out of 18 AAP candidates are crorepatis
On the other hand, Deshraj Raghav, who will be contesting elections from the Uttam Nagar seat declared assets worth Rs 12 crore.
Others in the crorepati list include Baljit Singh Mann, Girish Soni, Prit Pal Singh, Jarnail Singh, Mahinder Yadav, Narendra Singh Sejwal and Dharambir Singh.
The AAP from the beginning has been very simplistic in its approach. The party has always believed in fighting the elections in a free and fair manner, without any display of power. Even for the funds, the AAP claimed that they had received donations from the common man to fight the elections.
