Aam Aadmi Party has received donations of more than Rs one crore in the last two days in response to an appeal by its leader Arvind Kejriwal.

“For the past two days donations have swelled and we have received over Rs 80 lakh yesterday and Rs 35 lakh today. This easily crosses the one crore figure,” said a party leader.

The donations have come from within India and across the globe. Donation have come from party supporters from Singapore, USA, Belgium, Oman, Canada, Japan, Germany and Australia. A donor from Tamil Nadu on Thursday donated Rs 1 lakh while the minimum amount that was donated was Rs 10.

Two days back Kejriwal, who is contesting against BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi from Varanasi, had appealed for donations for his campaign.

“Reached Varanasi. Will go to Amethi on 20th. Need clean money to fight Modi and Rahul. Pl sms me at 9868069953 if u wish to donate. Pl RT (retweet),” he had tweeted. The tweet has been retweeted by over 2000 people.

The Varanasi team had also asked for 10 laptops a few days back.

    Smriti has been launched to break the anti Rahul votes. Or else, Smriti should have been put up against Sonia as AAP failed to put up a strong candidate against Sonia. But BJP has put up a local small timer against Sonia. The help that BJP did to Rahul through Smriti, is given back by Congress by putting up a strong local MLA Ajay Rai in Varanasi to break the anti Modi votes and make it easier for Modi.
