Claiming that AAP had run out of cash, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today appealed to the public to pitch in with money to help run the party’s daily expenses, indicating that its donations had taken a major hit.

Kejriwal justified his public appeal saying that AAP does not intend to fill its coffers adopting “wrong means” and would like to be steadfast in its vow to practice honest politics.

“After government formation (in Delhi) whatever cash the party had is over. We need money to run the party, for its day to day expenses.

“You may say he’s a strange CM. Asking for money even after becoming the CM. But this is the difference. If I had to earn money using wrong means I could have and there was no need to appeal. But I don’t intend to take that route of corruption,” Kejriwal said.

Incidentally, the AAP faced charges of accepting funds from dubious sources during the heated electoral campaign earlier this year.

“The public funded us, we never took any money under the table. We gave a record of every rupee we got,” he said.

Kejriwal urged people to chip in even if the amount is as low as Rs 10. “Give us because even your Rs 10 would help us practice honest politics.”

    Stop your ridiculous self-promotion first! It's an expense that could have been avoided if you truly were running out of money. You can't manage your own finances and you expect to manage Delhi's budget?! #foodforthought

      Kejriwal Sir, didn't you think it costs money before promising free bijli pani to buy votes? What kind of math did they teach you at IIT Kharagpur? Just like Greece, now you are going around with a begging bowl. Please learn from Greece. While you were buying votes with free bijli pani, someone had to pay the bills. You should go join Mr. Tsipras - what great couple you will make!
