The AAP said it welcomed the probe and,in response,demanded similar investigations into the funding of all political parties,particularly the Congress and the BJP.
But AAP leaders claimed the discussion about funding had,in fact,led to an unprecedented influx of donations for the party. As of 2.20 pm on Tuesday,we have received 1021 donations,amounting to Rs 14 lakh. Three days ago,we had got only 301 donations, Manish Sisodia,AAP leader,said.
Another AAP leader said the full extent of donations received on Tuesday could not be ascertained but claimed traffic on the website was so high on Monday that the site came close to crashing.
