AVAM SEEKS EC ACTION ON DONATIONS.
TAKING their complaints to the Election Commission, AAP Volunteer Action Manch ( AVAM), a break- away faction of the Aam Aadmi Party volunteers, on Thursday approached EC and Economic Offences Wing of Delhi Police seeking action against the party on allegation of getting dubious donations.
AVAM leader Karan Singh met Chief Election Commissioner H. S. Brahma and requested him to probe the allegations which it has levelled against AAP. AVAM had alleged that AAP received ` 2 crore, on the same day last year April, through four bogus companies which were fronts for money- laundering.
" We asked AAP to give details of the ` 2 crore donations but they have not sent us any reply. We gave them 48 hours and now, according to our promise, we met the EC and complained. The Chief Election Commissioner has taken notice of our complaint," Karan Singh said.
AVAM had also alleged that the Arvind Kejriwalled Alleges AAP received donations from abroad
Kejriwalled party was getting donations by foreignbased firms and nationals, in violation of the Indian law regarding foreign contribution, by getting the money first transferred to Indian nationals who then transfer money to AAP. AVAM had presented four cheques issued to Indian nationals living in Canada by foreign firms and nationals. The charge has been denied by a couple in whose names two of the four cheques were issued. AAP donor Jaskirat Mann had also threatened to file a legal case in Canada.
But AVAM maintained on Thursday that they have not received any legal notice from the couple.
" The couple from Canada was saying they will file a case against us but we have not received any notice. This shows they have nothing to prove against us," Singh said, adding that an AVAM delegation also met the DCP of Economic Offences Wing and apprised him of the allegations against AAP. However, AVAM failed to answer questions about the proof it claimed it had for substantiating the allegations on funding scam.
