Disclose names of funders, AAP tells Congress, BJP

Disclose names of funders, AAP tells Congress, BJP
‘The silence of these two parties on the Delhi High Court’s judgement which held them guilty of accepting foreign funds in violation of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act makes it clear that the Congress and the BJP are hand in glove on the issue of taking huge financial favours from corporate houses in return of providing them undue benefits wherever these two parties are in government,’ AAP said in a press release on Saturday.

The Delhi high court had on Friday ordered the authorities to take action against both Congress and BJP for receiving donations from UK-based Vedanta Resources’ subsidiaries on the ground that it violates laws. AAP on Saturday demanded that election commission of India should monitor the probe into the foreign funding of Congress and BJP, stating that the home ministry, after giving a ‘clean chit’ to these two parties, cannot be expected to complete an unbiased examination.

‘The EC, which has taken concrete steps in curbing the use of black money in elections, should treat this case as an example to come down hard on the corporate-political nexus, exposed by the landmark HC judgement,’ AAP said. The release further stated that the funds received from the Indian subsidiaries of Vedanta Resources by the two main political parties raised grave allegations of conflict of interest and bribery.
