Congress on Tuesday dubbed as a “misadventure” Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s appeal to the public to pitch in with money to help run Aam Aadmi Party’s daily expenses. “It’s an insult to the constitutional office he (CM Kejriwal) holds, it’s neither correct nor appropriate,” the party’s Communication department in-charge Randip Surjewala said on micro-blogging site Twitter.

“No PM, CM or elected prsn holding a constitutional office in India hs evr appealed for collection of money for his party.” “Mr.Kejriwal should give a full account of money his party collected, to ppl of country before proceeding on such a misadventure,” he said.
Claiming that AAP had run out of cash, Kejriwal appealed to the public to donate money to help run the party’s daily expenses. 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 practise honest politics.
