Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said that AAP is ready for any kind of probe on the source of party funds. However, he also added that along with the AAP, the BJP and the Congress should also reveal their source of funding.
AAP leader Kumar Vishwas challenged the government to prove them guilty. “There’s no point in making allegations against us. I challenge both the Congress and the BJP to prove us guilty. We receive all our funds in a transparent manner. Both the parties are sacred of us,” he added.

AAP has collected around Rs. 19 crore till November 8 as donations from 63,000 people. Arvind Kejriwal said “The Congress and BJP is scared of Aam Aadmi Party. Finish a probe in 48 hours. But let them also probe how Congress got funds worth Rs. 2000 crore. Let them also investigate the BJP’s funding.”
