A day after the assembly results of five states were declared, the Election Commission has congratulated AAP supremo and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal for the volunteer donation made to the Election Commission. Congress is likely to form the government in MP, Rajasthan and Chhatisgarh states whereas MFP in Mizoram and TRS in Telangana but it seems that AAP is the real winner.
“AAP had contested on more than 500 seats across all the states and by losing deposits on all the seats, AAP has made a huge contribution to the Election Commission,” said one of the EC officials.
It’s one of the biggest donation made by any political party to any organisation and is likely to make the entry in Guinness Book of World records. Other political parties like BJP and Congress are now under pressure to make donation to organisations.
In a serious allegation, a rebel AAP leader, Kapil Mishra, has accused CM Arvind Kejriwal of converting black money into white through Election Commission. “Arvind Kejriwal has a lot of black money and is afraid of raids from CBI and ED. He is contesting election on every seat possible and is also not campaigning to ensure that the candidates lose, thus giving all the money to the election commission,” said Kapil Mishra.
However, Arvind Kejriwal is calling it a win for the public, and posters and banners reading ‘Election Commission Congratulates Arvind Kejriwal’ have been put up across the capital. CM Kejirwal has also promised of even bigger donation in upcoming general elections in 2019.
