AAP questions ‘silence’ of BJP, Cong over foreign donations, wants EC probe

The AAP on Saturday “questioned the silence” of the BJP and the Congress on the Delhi High Court directing the authorities to take action against them for receiving donations from abroad. It challenged the two parties to disclose their donation sources.

In a statement, the AAP said, “The silence of these two parties… on accepting foreign funds in violation of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act makes it clear that they are hand in glove on the issue of taking huge financial favours from corporate houses in return for providing them undue benefits…” The statement demanded that the EC probe the issue “since the Home Ministry, which gave a clean chit to these parties, cannot be expected to do an impartial investigation”.
