New Delhi: Congress and Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday took questioned the source of ‘huge’ funds and ‘extravagant arrangements’ being made for Sunday's rally here to be addressed by Narendra Modi.
DPCC president J.P. Agarwal said such expenditure was reflective of the party's ‘culture’.
"There is a disconnect between what BJP says and what it does. They talk about issues affecting the poor people but see the way they are splurging money for the rally," Agarwal said.
Aam Admi Party alleged money earned through ‘illegal means’ is being spent for the rally. "Money collected through loot of public funds is being used for the rally," AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal charged.
AAP leader and spokesperson Manish Sisodia said ‘they should reveal the source from where they are getting the money. According to a report, 73 to 75 per cent of their funding is from unkown sources." Asked about the attack by Congress and BJP, senior BJP leader Vijender Gupta, however, rejected the allegations and said contribution by party workers have helped the party make the arrangements. Asked about budget for the rally, Gupta, who is convenor for the rally, said "some things have been sponsored. Some of the arrangements have been made by the party's district units. We cannot give a proper figure," he said.
The city unit of BJP had on Tuesday unveiled a ‘high-decibel 360 degree publicity campaign’ to ensure maximum impact of Modi's rally in assembly poll-bound Delhi. The party plans to put up 100 LED screens across the city to show Modi's speech live besides making elaborate arrangements for those who will be going to the venue at Japanese park in Rohini.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
