“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.
