Modi attacks AAP over donations

By The Assam Tribune

New Delhi, Feb 3 (IANS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday hit out at the AAP on the issue of malpractice in donations received by the party.

Addressing an election rally in Rohini in north Delhi, Modi said the Aam Aadmi Party had been till now talking about who was more corrupt -- the Congress or the Bharatiya Janata Party. "Now we know the truth. Look at their shamelessness," he said, and questioned AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on accepting support from the Congress for forming the government last year.

"He (Kejriwal) had said 'we (AAP) had not asked for support but they (Congress) gave it to us. Similarly they will say they had not asked for the money but they gave it to us," Modi said.

A group of former AAP volunteers on Monday alleged malpractice in donations received by the Kejriwal-led party.

"Our country can forgive mistakes, but not fraudsters," the Prime Minister said.

Modi said the people of Delhi had elected BJP leaders from all seven Lok Sabha seats in the capital in the 2014 general elections. "You made me your own. Now it is my responsibility to give back the love showered on me by the people of Delhi.

"I want to assure Delhi people, the love showered by you will be returned by me with interest and with development," he said.

Delhi goes to polls on Feb 7 and votes will be counted on Feb 10.
