NEW DELHI:A day after the Aam Aadmi Party’s breakaway AAP Volunteer Action Manch faction alleged that the party had received Rs 2 crore worth of funds from four dubious companies, the AVAM on Tuesday made public the two cheques public which had found their way into the AAP coffers.

Following the disclosure, the BJP came out all guns blazing with  Union Minister Nirmala Sitharaman comparing AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal to a ‘chor’ (thief).

She said, “A chor cannot demand who will inquire into his misdeeds. Kejriwal cannot decide who will investigate,” Sitharaman said. She also said that he can approach the Supreme Court, SIT or whosoever but he needs to explain.

Reacting to Sitharaman’s comment, AAP leader Ashutosh said, “The language used by Nirmala calling Kejriwal a thief shows to what extend the BJP leaders will stoop. The Prime Minister using the word Naxalite for Kejriwal shows their(the BJP) frustration.”

Fellow AAP leader Yogendra Yadav accused the BJP of attempting to influence the Delhi voters ahead of Saturday’s polls by levelling false allegations even as he refuted the  AVAM.

Meanwhile, the AVAM threatened to launch an agitation against Kejriwal, besides lodging a police complaint. “Within 48 hours, we will launch an agitation against the AAP. We will stage demonstrations against it from February 5. We will also  file a complaint with the Economic Offences Wing of the Delhi Police, Enforcement Directorate, Registrar of Companies of the Corporate Affairs, the RBI and also to the EC,” Gopal Goel of AVAM, said.
