The dinner, organised last night during Kejriwal’s two-day visit to the city to drum-up support for the party, was attended by around 200 people, AAP leaders said.
The event was an initiative by a group called “Well wishers of AAP” co-ordinated by former Infosys board member and party candidate from Bangalore Central constituency V. Balakrishnan with an intention to raise funds for the party in a “transparent manner”.
“Around 200 people attended the dinner. We have gathered about Rs 50 lakh,” said C.N Radhakrishnan, a member of “Well wishers of AAP”.
“A few people had pledged support to us but could not attend the event… they will be sending in their contributions soon,” he added.

In what was said to be an interactive session, Kejriwal’s recent salvo against the media was a hot topic among the attendees, who quizzed the former Delhi Chief Minister over the issue.
Naina P Nayak, AAP’s candidate from Bangalore South who was part of the dinner event, said, “It was a great event, it was completely interactive session, people asked him all kind of questions and pointed out some errors too.”
“People asked him about his recent comments about media. Kejriwal sought to clarify his comment and tried to make them understand what he really meant….,” Nayak said without elaborating.
“His resignation as Delhi Chief Minister was another hot topic. A few had some reservations on the way he resigned,” she added.
