Battleground Delhi: AAP to approach SC seeking SIT probe into funding of BJP, Congress and self


New Delhi, Feb 3: A day after a breakaway group of the Aam Aadmi Party accused the party of receiving donations worth Rs 2 crore from bogus companies, the AAP on Tuesday said it will move the Supreme Court demanding a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into the funding of all the three main political parties contesting Assembly elections in Delhi.

According to reports, the party wants a thorough probe into the funding of Congress, BJP and of its own.

AAP leader Ashutosh in a tweet said that he along with four other leaders will go to the apex court to hand over a letter, requesting to create an SIT to investigate the funding of the BJP, the Congress and the AAP.

"A team of five leaders - Ashutosh, Kumar Vishwas, Sanjay singh, Ashish Khetan and Yogendra Yadav - will reach the SC...," Ashutosh tweeted.

"If the BJP has guts, lets meet at a place of your choice and talk about each other's fund ??? In full public view !!!," Ashutosh said in another tweet.

This development comes after a group of former AAP volunteers alleged malpractice in donations received by the Arvind Kejriwal-led party. Addressing a press conference on Monday, the AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM) claimed that fake entries were made in AAP's account books to evade tax.

The party rebels highlighted that four different bogus companies made donations worth 50 lakh rupees each to AAP.

AVAM, a group of volunteers, had broken away from the AAP in August last year.
