BJP seeks explanation from Kejriwal over AAP's 'illegal' funding

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The (BJP) on Friday sought an answer from (AAP) chief Kejriwal on the recent reports of using government funding on ad campaign.

"Kejriwal must come up and answer on this funding issue, as why so much of fiasco is taking place? Why so many complaints are coming?" leader Shahnawaz Hussain told ANI.

Hussain further said that AAP members are habitualized on slapping allegations against others but don't feel the need to provide an answer to the controversies surrounding their own party.

As per reports, Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal has reportedly used Rs 1.5 crore from the annual budget of Delhi for the campaigns in Punjab and Goa.

Kejriwal hit the headlines again recently when a news channel revealed documents showing use of Rs 1.58 crore by AAP on advertising in its election campaigns.
