Maken seeks thorough probe into AAP's 'foreign funding'
Delhi Congress on Sunday said the allegations made by sacked Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party colleagues – that on January 30 money was transferred in one-day through 13 companies and 180 shell companies were opened on one address – was a very serious one and sought a thorough probe into the matter.
Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ajay Maken said it was unlikely that the government agencies were unaware of it and wondered why the Bharatiya Janata Party-led central government was not prosecuting Kejriwal and why no FIR has been filed against the Kejriwal
government under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
Maken noted that Mishra had made many other serious allegations too, and he was part of the Kejriwal government till the other day.
Maken further said Kejriwal should forthwith resign on moral and legal grounds, following the serious allegations made by Mishra.
The Delhi Congress chief said that fellow party leader Anand Sharma had on January 23 raised the issue of AAP getting money from anti-national forces, as one AAP MLA went to London and collected money from separatist forces.
Maken said that Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had also given a statement that Khalistani forces were funding AAP, and the question arises where the money is coming from, who is giving it and in which account the money is going.
In addition to seeking a probe under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, Maken said the source of the foreign funding and the account where the money is being deposited need to be traced.
"Which are the forces that are giving money to Kejriwal's party and the purpose behind it, and how the foreign forces are helping the divisive forces in India. All these questions should be answered," said Maken. He added that a special audit should be carried out on the foreign funding.
