NEW DELHI: AAP's breakaway group AVAM today asked the Arvind Kejriwal-led party to disclose names of the companies which donated Rs 2 crore to it and threatened to launch an agitation if it fails to do so in 48 hours.

"After the end of 48 hours, we will launch an agitation against the AAP. We will demonstrate against it from February 5. We will also go and complain with Economic Offenses Wing of the Delhi Police, Enforcement Directorate, Registrar of

Companies of the Corporate Affairs, RBI and also to EC," Gopal Goel of AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM) said.         

The AAP has rejected the charges and demanded a Supreme Court-monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe funding of all three major parties in Delhi polls.

In a press conference, called a day after it alleged AAP of receiving Rs 2 crore from dubious companies, AVAM demanded action against members of AAP's Political Affairs Committee if they had taken decision to receive the donation.

"We want the party to come up with the cover letter which they received along with the cheques from those companies. We also want them to make public the minute of the meetings of the PAC which cleared the transaction," Goel said.           

The group also produced two undated cheques bearing no name and claimed that these "cheques were also being used for money laundering" by the party. When asked about the authenticity of the cheques, the AVAM refused to clarify.

"First let Kejriwal and his party give their defence then we will also tell how we got these cheques...Two of the four companies (which were referred to in its yesterday's claim)

have their names as donors on the cheque, one each..and these companies do their fraud business quite brazenly," Goel claimed.

AVAM also alleged that AAP was "donated money by foreign- based firms", in violation of the Indian law regarding foreign contribution.

Another volunteer of AVAM, Karan Singh today also alleged that the party had tried to "lure" him with a ticket from Sonepat of Haryana.
