New Delhi, February 2: The BJP on Monday slammed the AAP for allegedly taking dotions from “shell companies”, after a group of former AAP volunteers alleged malpractice in dotions received by the Arvind Kejriwal–led party. “Four fake companies, with same directors, and made within a period of 10–11 days, doted Rs.50 Lakh each to the AAP on the same day,” BJP leader Piyush Goyal said. “These companies did not have any profit. According to laws, a company can dote only 7.5 percent of their average annual profit plus tax for three years as political dotion,” he said. “When they have no profit, how can they dote money,” the union power minister asked.
BJP leader and Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said: “The Aam Aadmi Party has been receiving cheques from shell companies they created for carrying out nefarious activities.” “AAP ... till you give specific answers, stop telling other political parties what high ground you are seated on,” Sitharaman added.
