Congress asks AAP to explain overseas funding

New Delhi [India], May 6 : Asserting that irregularities have cropped in the past as well in connection with foreign funding of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Congress Party on Saturday urged the Arvind Kejriwal-led outfit to come out clean in the regard.

Averring that it is the second time problems have been cited in connection with foreign funding of AAP, Congress leader J.P Aggarwal said that figures of fund which the party submitted were found to be incorrect.

"The AAP should give information regarding its foreign funding because they have been accused in the same regard earlier as well.

They have not given correct numbers, the figures they have shared do not match," Aggarwal told ANI. "The AAP was claiming that it will make its funding available on the internet but then they have not done that, all that drama is over.

Now that an irregularity has been pointed they must come clean," he added. Triggering yet another AAP vs Centre face-off, the Ministry of Home Affairs had yesterday sent a notice to AAP asking it to provide information in connection with its overseas funding.

The Home Ministry in its notice has asked AAP to disclose the source, nature and the amount of donation as well as the shareholding pattern the foreign equity in the shareholding pattern of the corporation, company or source from where the donation is received.
