New Delhi, May 19, 2017: Sacked Delhi Minister Kapil Mishra on Friday claimed that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) received funds in the form of hawala money from shell companies and added that he has evidence to back his claims.

Addressing a press conference, Mishra said Delhi businessman who claimed he had donated Rs 2 crore to AAP is a patsy. He further showed letterheads from four companies and said they were a forgery made at home.

Mishra further added that Kumar’s signature is missing from two of the four letterheads and pointed out that Kumar was made CEO of the company this year, days before MCD elections, but the donations were made under his name in 2014.

AAP gets fund from Hawala operators…They are avoiding my questions…The video which was tweeted by Kejriwal on twitter on Thursday was fake, he said.

Mishra also said that I-T department questioned AAP over Rs 2 crore, but the party claimed they do not know who made the donations. He further “challenged” Kejriwal to tell I-T department that he received donations from Mukesh Kumar. IT dept still does not know the source of Rs 2 crore, Mishra said.

The sacked minister also said that Kumar’s company is itself a bank and VAT defaulter, and asked how he can donate Rs 2 crore to AAP.

Earlier,  Mishra in a series of tweets said that he would reveal Kejriwal’s “biggest lie” on Friday: 

Mishra, who was suspended from the party for levelling serious corruption allegations against Kejriwal and other AAP leaders, said that:

Mishra also requested all party members, who consider AAP as a “clean party,” to watch his expose on Friday.

As the AAP leadership, including chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, promoted a report related to the individual on social media, Mishra claimed he would ‘expose’ the man and links of AAP’s funding with hawala operators on Friday.

The AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM), a breakaway faction of AAP, had in February 2015 alleged that the four donors — Sky line Metal & Alloy Pvt LTD, Sunvision agencies Pvt LTD, Infolense software solutions LTD, Goldmine & buildcon Pvt LTD — were shell companies. It accused the AAP of accepting illegal money.

New Delhi, May 22 : Just as all actions and political realignments get fast paced eyeing the 2019 Parliamentary polls, the BJP on Tuesday launched a massive nationwide programme to reach out to the poor and said massive multi-pronged welfare measures are being undertaken by the Modi government to bring about drastic improvement in the conditions of the downtrodden.

Hum gaon ko samasyaon se mukh kar rahen haen…yeh ek naya soch hae (We are improving the conditions of the poor and bringing about drastic changes in the conditions of villages through multi-pronged programmes. This is a new vision itself)," BJP chief Amit Shah told a press conference at party headquarters – his second media interaction within 24 hours and three days since the fall of B S Yeddyurappa government in Karnataka.

He said 21,844 total villages were earmarked when seven nationwide welfare projects including Ujjwala, Saubhagya and Ujjala were launched from April 14 and till May 5, a total 16,850 villages were covered spread over 484 districts. He said the remaining villages in mostly in Karnataka and West Bengal where code of conduct was in force will be covered till next year.

The BJP chief clarified that the developmental measures should not be linked to the Parliamentary election due next year.

He said out of these 16,850 villages, no household is without electricity and no mother or her newborn has been left without vaccination. ‘For the first time, the country is witnessing a new yardstick of development where poor people do not have to queue up for redressal of their grievances but it is the government which is reaching out to them,’ he said.

In this context, Mr Shah said for the next year’s election, irrespective of political stand of various parties, the public mood will be in favour of Narendra Modi in any case.

‘Mahol toh Modi ke liye bana hua hae (Elections mood is set in people for the BJP and Modi). We will win with bigger margin.

Gas was provided under Ujjala Scheme, electricity under Saubhagya yojna, LED bulbs were given under Ujala scheme to the poor, he said. ‘Bank accounts were opened for 20,53,599 families, this is the achievement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,’, he said.

Gram Swaraj Abhiyaan is a unique experiment which was run between April 14 to May 5, this is the first time after Independence that such a programme has been undertaken, Mr Shah said, a day before the swearing-in ceremony takes place in Karnataka with Mr H D Kumaraswamy as the Chief Minister.

As many 1,200 officers stayed overnight in villages which were taken in batches, he said.

He asked to play a proactive role in taking the programmes to the people.
