It seems that the ruling Congress and BJP opposition in Delhi is shaken to the core by the immense popularity of Aam Aadmi Party and its undisputed leader, Arvind Kejriwal. The proof is that both Congress and BJP are attacking AAP more virulently than their former adversary.
Today TV channels have telecasted the statement of Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde that Central Government has ordered a probe into the source of funds of Aam Aadmi Party. This is indeed surprising. AAP is the only party In India which has publicly declared the source of every single paisa of fund the party has received both from within and outside India. The other parties, including Congress, BJP and the Left, which get crores and crores without divulging the source of funding and resist any attempt to bring their parties under the purview of the RTI Act, are demanding probe into the collection of funds of AAP. I would like to make it clear that every donation domestic or NRI received by the party is published in its website including the name and address of the contributor.
I am a person who has donated a small amount to AAP for Delhi election. The amount was paid by account payee cheque recording my name, address and phone number on the rear side of the cheque. I will be getting a receipt soon. My contribution is a very small amount and I was ready to pay it in cash to the local volunteers in Thrissur, but they were not ready to accept any donation by cash. How can a party be more transparent than this? Other parties like Congress , BJP and even Left parties don’t entertain donations by cheque or draft. They prefer cash only.
It has to be said to the credit of AAP that party leader Arvind Kejriwal whole-heartedly welcomed a thorough enquiry into sources of funds of the party. Is any party in India ready to welcome an enquiry into their sources of funds. Their sources are black money of the industrial corporates and illegal mafia dons stashed in Swiss and other foreign banks.
No doubt, Congress has decided for the probe to malign the nascent party and choke and kill it even before its credibility and popularity is established in the Delhi poll. That means they are shaken by the immense acceptability among people of the Aam Aadmi Party.
