Its been raining funds for Arvind Kejriwal's AAP, according to the donation list published by the party. According to the party's list it seems to be adding money to its account on a daily basis, thanks to generous supporters.
The party has found 45,000 donors as of now from all across the country and abroad too. A Hong Kong based NRI donated Rs 2 lakh to the party, the highest donation so far. Apart from this there were donations made from rickshaw pullers, students and even pensioners who contributed to the cause.
Rajya Sabha member and businessman Rajeev Chandrashekhar too donated Rs 5 lakh to the party thereby raising many eyebrows. Later on he posted on his Facebook account: "Made my first financial support to the Aam Aadmi Party for their Delhi campaign- Rs 5 lakhs. Their performance in the Delhi elections is important for all those who care about the real issues of governance and politics of serving people. Its no longer ok to be silent and mute spectators to what is happening. Take a stand."
In two days, the party collected Rs 14 lakh
When Kejriwal ventured into politics, he knew that the funds would be his biggest hurdle. He began organising public meetings in the capital to garner support and also urged people to donate to the AAP.
And looks like his appeal to the janta worked. According to their website, the donations as of September were at Rs 90, 695,051. The website also has other results that the people can track on a daily basis if they want to know where the funds are coming from.The party has so far collected Rs 4 lakh from door-to- door campaign in the New Delhi constituency alone.
The party makes all the contributions public, those that run in lakhs and even those that donate Rs 1 maintaining complete transparency.
