Speaking to a group of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes members in South Goa, Kejriwal said, “It would look odd but it is true that despite a one-and-half year of governance in Delhi, AAP does not have money to fight election. I can show you my bank account, even the party does not have money.”
However, contrary to Kejriwal’s claims, facts speak otherwise. Going by the Election Commission, the AAP is the fourth largest political party in the country in terms of receiving contributions. In the financial year 2014-15, it received contributions worth Rs 37.45 crore.
This does not come as a shock as the party has a notorious image of being manipulative and duping not just the city they are governing but also the competing parties, as well.
In opposition of Kejriwal’s false claimants, Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari told India Today Digital that what the Delhi CM said the most hypocritical claim one can make. “This is the most sanctimonious statement which really undermines the humbug that the AAP is. Till today, these fellows have not disclosed the funds collected by India Against Corruption (IAC),” he said.
