The Centre has initiated a probe into the source of funding of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), with the Union home ministry trying to establish if it received any money from foreign donors in violation of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA).

"We have ordered an enquiry into funding of AAP to verify if any foreign donations were routed to it," Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde told newspersons here a day after Delhi chief minister Shiela * questioned the source of nearly Rs 19 crore collected by the newly floated party led by activist-politician Arvind Kejriwal.

However, Shinde refused to put a timeline as to when the results of the enquiry would be available. "Such matters take time...one has to see from which foreign country the donations may be coming," he said, giving ample indications that the probe might continue well after the Delhi state polls, due on December 4.

The Representation of People Act (RPA) debars political parties from receiving contributions from a foreign source defined under clause (e) of the Section 2 of the FCRA, 1976. The FCRA, too, states that it has been formulated "to ensure that the foreign contribution and foreign hospitality is not utilized to affect or influence electoral politics, public servants, judges and other people working in the important areas of national life like journalists, printers and publishers of newspapers among others.

According to the AAP, it has collected Rs 19 crore as donations from around 63,000 individuals belonging to cross section of society. The party claims to have received donations ranging from Rs 10 to several lakhs, from rickshaw-pullers, traders, industrialists and NRIs

Govt. to probe foreign funding of AAP

The Central Goverment has ordered to take a probe against foreign funding of Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party, which will make its political debut in the December 4 Delhi state election.On Monday, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde made the announcement regarding the same, he said "Whatever the source of funding is, which country it is coming from, to probe this we have given it to the ministry. We had got complaints about foreign funding and we are investigating. It takes some time."

Although he has already made it clear that the investigations like this take time to bring out the actual results and its not possible to get the same before Delhi Polls.

In lieu of this order..Mr Kejriwal shot back, "The Congress is scared of AAP. Let them probe us. 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."The party has alleged that they are being targeted as on the some news channels the exit polls predicted them as better prospects for the first-timers than earlier believed.

According to reports, Mr Kejriwal's fledgling outfit claims to have collected around Rs. 19 crore as donations from 63,000 people, ranging from rickshaw pullers, to traders, industrialists and overseas Indians.The Delhi High Court also ordered last month the Centre to look into the accounts of AAP and investigate their source of funding. The government had been asked to file a status report by December 10.

What you have to say about this..Its just a blame game or there is some reality also in Centre's allegations..Share with us..
