One of the closest aides of Kejriwal and AAP leader -- Yogendra Yadav, during an interview, was quoted as said, If they (Ambanis) give us Rs.9,99,999, and if people of Mumbai accept it, then it would not go to (AAP's) Political Affairs Committee (PAC)."
AAP placed conditions before Ambanis over taking donations
Speaking about donation from the Ambanis, Yogendra Yadav continued to say, "Once it crosses this figure and touches Rs 10 lakh, then this issue will be kept before AAP's supreme authority, the Political Affairs Committee, saying such money is coming, does this money have a problem ('Gadbad to nahin hai?'), then we will ask the people, like you, to tell us: 'Is Mukesh Ambani's money having any problem ('gadbad')."
Continuing his statement, he was also quoted as saying, "First is transparency; second is no quid pro quo. There should be no formal or informal quid pro quo. It should not be, in our view, tainted money. That is why it would go to Political Affairs Committee and not financial committee. Then only we will take a decision."
Despite his indirect replies to questions regarding donation from the Ambanis, Yadav did not reject the idea of accepting donation from the Ambanis whom they his party has been attacking since past few days.
Here it can be recalled that Kejriwal, before resigning as Delhi CM, lodged an FIR against Mukesh Ambani, Petroleum Minister Veerappa Moily and two others accusing them of wrongdoings over gas price hike in the country. He also questioned Anil Ambani in connection with electricity crisis in Delhi.
