AAP’s foreign funds are according to the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) with no legal violations, the Centre told Delhi High Court.
A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed against Arvind Kejriwal and other AAP members by an advocate, ML Sharma regarding the foreign funding of the party. The PIL claimed, among other things, that AAP was getting funds from CIA and Muslim terrorists.
AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM) which broke away from AAP last year in August accused the party of getting funds from bogus companies. The PIL also talks about phone calls from Dubai and other countries to Delhi’s Muslim population to support AAP.
AAP’s advocate Pranav Sachdeva told the court that Government is investigating the AVAM issue and the party is being fully cooperative.
The centre told the court that earlier Government had inquired into the issue but nothing was found.
