New Delhi, March 15: The BJP on Saturday denied reports that it has organised a fund-raising dinner for its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in New Delhi, a report published in Zee News said. Reports had claimed that Modi would hold such programme at the Ashoka Hotel here on March 26. Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) Arvind Kejriwal has been holding such dinners for raising funds for his party in cities like Nagpur and Bangalore.

Party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said the claims were baseless and said the BJP's programme is to organise 'tea with Modi' and not 'dinner with Modi with a price tag'.

The price tag for attending the alleged dinner with Modi was between Rs 1 lakh and Rs 2.4 crore, much higher than those fixed at Kejriwal's dinner parties, said the report. The prices varied according to the sitting arrangements, claimed the reports. A seat in the back row would cost Rs 1 lakh while Rs 2.5 lakh is the price of sitting in a front-row seat. Those willing to pay Rs 25 lakh could share a seat with Modi on a round table while for corporate sponsors, the tag was fixed between Rs 60 lakh and Rs 2.4 crore, said the report.
