AAP asks BJP, Cong to disclose source of unaccounted donations
AAP national treasurer Raghav Chadha on Sunday wrote to his Congress and BJP counterparts asking them to disclose the source of unaccounted donations received by them.
Chadha, in his letters to Congress national treasurer Motilal Vora and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national treasurer Piyush Goyal, said the government’s move to exempt demonetised currency deposited in banks by political parties raises questions about the actual intention behind the note-ban. He urged them to express their willingness to get their party account details of the last five years probed by an independent panel.
“Political parties don’t give account of the donations received by them. I request you to make public the details of all the donations received by your party.
“Also make public the names of those who gave donations below Rs 20,000,” he said.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader further said that most of the donations received by the Congress and the BJP comes from undisclosed sources and asked them to make their details public as well.
