AAP receives targetted funds
New Delhi, Nov 17: After achieving the target of 20 crore rupees, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal has urged upon people not to donate anymore for the party as they have received the donation amount.

Kejriwal took to twitter and conveyed the message that "Your party needed Rs 20 crores to fight Delhi elections. We have met that target. We don't need any more money for Delhi elections."

Adding to that Kejriwal also thanked its donors in the tweet saying: "A big thank u to all donors. This is their clean hard earned money, which I am sue, will go a long way in cleaning up Indian politics."

AAP is all set to contest on 70 seats of Delhi assembly election.

There were several question raised by different political parties last few days on funding of Aam Aadmi Party.

Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had earlier stated that the Central Government has ordered a probe into the source of foreign funding received by Aam Aadmi Party.

"Whatever the source of funding is, which country it is coming from, to probe this we have given it to the ministry. We had got complaints about foreign funding and we are investigating. It takes some time," Shinde said.

In a petition filed by advocate M L Sharma, Delhi High Court also order probe into funding of AAP.

In return, Kejriwal had said that there is no violation of Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) and party has not taken any amount from foreign nationals but they received donation from NRIs who holds Indian passport and which is permitted under RP act. However the probe into the matter is on.
