New Delhi, Jan 31 (IBNS) The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said it has received Rs 1.25 crore as donation during a fund raising event on Saturday.

"The Aam Aadmi Party’s fund raising event on Saturday with former chief minister Arvind Kejriwal saw a record donation of Rs 1.25 crore, the highest collection for a single event,"  read the party's website.

Over 150 donors and supporters attended the event at the Constitution Club, where Kejriwal discussed the AAP’s 70 point action plan and the manifesto for Delhi.

"The donors were primarily professionals, corporate executives, entrepreneurs and small businessmen," read the website.

Speaking at the event, AAP leader Gul Panag mentioned that the nature of the support for the party proves that “the AAP is neither leftist nor rightist but realist”.

Party’s national secretary Pankaj Gupta shared details of funding sources and anectodes from small donors to make the point that transparent political funding is changing the political landscape in India.

“Recently a daily wage earner came to my office and offered his entire’s day earning because he said that he wants clean politics” he said.

All AAP donations are transparently published on the website and AAP is the only party that has voluntarily agreed to come under the RTI law. With today’s donations, the AAP is getting closer to its target of raising Rs 30 crore for Delhi elections.
