In a bid to ratchet up the party’s fund drive, which had got bogged down, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)has pulled out all the stops, including launching a mobile application, holding Google Hangouts with overseas Indians and organising fund raisers.

It has been widely using social networking sites, mainly Facebook and Twitter, to encourage people to donate generously for ‘a corruption-free India’. The mobile application ‘Aap ka Dhan’ launched by the AAP will help the party volunteers to collect money from donors during the door-to- door campaign, election rallies, road shows and at any public place and in return the donor will receive an SMS confirming its receipt.
