While refusing to make his own Party’s funding public, Arvind Kejriwal demands setting up of Commission to probe Funding sources of Political Parties

Kejriwal sought to link the Centre’s tax exemption decision to the meeting between Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi

New Delhi, Dec 19, 2016: While Aam Aadmi Party is surrounded by numerous criticism regarding not making donations public, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday demanded setting up of a commission to investigate and examine the source of funding of political parties.

He also questioned that why central government has taken a decision to exempt political parties from paying income tax while depositing old 500 and 1,000 rupee notes, post PM Modi’s demonetisation move.

Further, Kejriwal sought to link the Centre’s tax exemption decision to the meeting between Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, suggesting that the announcement was the result of the meeting between the two, mentioned PTI.

At a press conference Kejriwal said, “common people are being investigated if they deposit Rs 2.5 lakh individually. But if political parties are not going to be investigated even if they deposit Rs. 2,500 crore following the decision, then it is wrong.”

“We demand setting up of an independent commission to probe into bank account details of political parties over the past five years, to investigate into their sources of funding,” mentioned PTI.

When a part of the common people are doubting AAP’s policy and agenda, Kejriwal asks the Central Government to make public details of money deposited by all political parties post-demonetisation and sought removal of the “less than Rs. 20,000 donation cap” for tax exemption, saying “each paisa the parties receive should be declared”.

“The income tax returns filed by AAP right from its formation until now are being enquired into. We are presenting each of the receipts and vouchers to the income tax department. We are not scared, what are the other parties like BJP scared of? Why shouldn’t they be probed?” he further asked.
