Arvind Kejriwal appeals for donation, says party has run out of money

2

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Tuesday that his party Aam Aadmi Party had run out of money and appealed people to donate.

He told a news agency, ” The public funded us, we never took any money under the table. We gave a record of every rupee we got. After we came to power, our funds exhausted. Now we want funds to run our party and we want it from the public.”

Kejriwal, who’s also the party’s convener, recently faced scathing attack from his opposition for his government’s decision to allocate Rs 520 crore budget for self-publicity.

He said that his party has always believed in following lawful means to seek funds.

“We are indebted to the people for their help. But now we need funds for day to day expenses. You would say I’m a bizarre CM, asking for funds like this. We can get money the wrong way, but that is not who we are.”

AAP, since its inception a couple of years ago, has largely depended on public fund-raising and donations for running the party and contesting elections. The party was reported to have collected close to Rs 30 crore during the Delhi assembly elections earlier this year.

  1. Donate to Aam Aadmi Party

    ON 2ND OCTOBER 2012 IN DELHI CONSTITUTIONAL CLUB, THE DAY AAP DECLARED ITS VISION, I REMEMBER AAP’S MOST RESPECTABLE MEMBER SHRI SHANTI BHUSHANJI WAS ADDRESSING THE AUDIENCE SAYING THAT HE WAS THE CAMPAIGNER OF SHRI LAL BAHADUR SHASTRI. AT THAT TIME THEY ALSO HADN’T HAD THAT MONEY TO FIGHT THE ELECTION. AFTER THAT, THE REST IS HISTORY. SHASTRIJI BECAME THE MOST RESPECTABLE AND THE BEST PRIME MINISTER INDIA EVER SEEN.

    IN THIS PRESENT JUNCTURE OF DIVISIVE & CRIMINALISATION OF POLITICS, WHENEVER, WHEREVER AND WHATEVER YOU ARE, PLEASE DO SOMETHING, AAPNE AAPKE LIYE.

    AAP, IN THE PRESENT SCENARIO IS THE ONLY POLITICAL PARTY WHICH IS NOT SEATING A ROOM MADE OF GLASS. AS AAP NEVER ACCEPTS UNACCOUNTED MONEY OF ANY VESTED INTERESTS, ONLY HAS THE SPINE TO FIGHT AGAINST THE CRONY POLITICIANS AND THE CAPITALISTS.

    APP ASSURES CLEAN, TRANSPARENT AND ALTERNATIVE POLITICS EMPOWERING THE PEOPLE ESTABLISHING “SWARAJ” THROUGH GRAM AND MOHALLA SABHAS .

    WHEN MORE AND MORE SWARAJ WILL BE ESTABLISHED THE PUBLIC REPRESENTATIVES WILL HAVE TO BE ACCOUNTABLE TO AAM AADMI, THE ULTIMATE BENEFICIARY. LESSER WILL BE THE CHANCES OF CORRUPTION WHICH WILL BRING MORE AND MORE SELFLESS PEOPLE INTO POLITICS. THIS WILL REVERSE THE VICIOUS CYCLE OF TRADITIONAL POLITICS AND BEGIN A NEW ERA. ACTUAL ACCHE DIN WILL GET ITS MOMENTUM.

    SO, DONATIONS TO AAP WILL NEVER GO ASTRAY…………..
    AS HONEST POLITICS IS THE KEY TO GOOD GOVERNANCE, ECONOMIC GROWTH AND YOUR SAFETY, DONATE AAP FROM YOUR HEART WITH OPEN HAND…………

  2. An old saying comes to the mind. ” Truth can never be suppressed ” Instead of all that advertisement to show the work and achievements of the AAP in Delhi, this donation will show the true colour and situation in Delhi to the whole of the nation. If AAP has really satisfied the people of delhi with its governance then DELHI is going to donate in abundance else AAP is just going to stay dry and may survive only if it is a corrupted, just like any other party in INDIA.
    The rest of INDIA or the world may not donate until there is a strong response from the Delhiites, the first hand experiencers and judges of the AAP government
