New Delhi: Just a day after the Aam Aadmi Party swept out BJP and Congress in Delhi by a massive majority, the Income Tax department has served a notice to the party. It is said that the IT sought explanation for donations of over Rs 2 crore to the party.
According to sources, the notice has been served on the basis of issues raised by the Aam Aadmi Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM) which claimed AAP knowningly accepted funds from bogus firms.
The AVAM had alleged that several companies who claim to have given funds to AAP have also given funds to others. The AAP has to reply to the notice, which was served to them two days back, by February 16.
