A slap worth Rs 85 lakh: AAP

New Age Desk

Attacks on its leader Arvind Kejriwal appear to be a blessing in disguise for the Aam Aadmi Party. Donations to the party have registered a significant increase after four of the five attacks on Kejriwal. After Tuesday’s attack, the party received contributions of over Rs 85 lakh from the previous day’s Rs 29 lakh, The Times of India reported.
Despite this spike, AAP has only managed to collect Rs 24.53 crore from 86,649 donors from 111 countries since December 12. This is a far cry from the Rs 100 crore target that the party has set for itself.
Kejriwal has been at the receiving end of ink splotches, eggs, punches and slaps during the last two months of campaigning across the country. On March 28, he was hit on the neck at Rohtak, Haryana. That day, the party collected Rs 42 lakh in donations compared to Rs 39 lakh the previous day.
