Delhi leaders take money : Kingra

By September 1, 2016 0 Comments

Former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Hardip Singh Kingra, who recently resigned from the party, alleged that party’s Delhi leaders had been accepting cash collected by Punjab leaders for the party.

A former bureaucrat, Kingra is a close aide of party’s sacked leader Sucha Singh Chhotepur.
Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, Kingra said a bag containing Rs 16 lakh was handed over to AAP national spokesman Ashutosh and another Rs 5 lakh to party’s Punjab affairs in-charge Sanjay Singh.

“I headed the AAP’s finance committee and we had 12 members with us. Before the Maghi Mela in January this year, we collected around Rs 24 lakh from party supporters. While everyone deposited the amount in the party fund, one of the members of the fundraising committee, Surinder Singh Arora, told me that he had collected `6 lakh but gave Rs 5 lakh to Sanjay Singh and `1 lakh was deposited in the party account.”
Rubbishing the allegations, Arora said he would file a defamation case against Kingra. Arora said he had all details of funds raised for the party. Sanjay Singh also refuted the charges and said Arora was telling the truth.
