PIL seeks probe in Congress, BJP's foreign funding
Wednesday November 13, 2013 10:09 PM, IANS

A public interest litigation (PIL) seeking a probe into foreign contributions made to the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was Wednesday filed in the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court (HC).

The petition was filed by social activist and a member of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Nutan Thakur.

Welcoming the probe ordered by Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde into AAP's foreign contribution accounts, she demanded similar exercise for other politicial parties as well.

"Ordering the probe when the process of Delhi assembly polls is underway is extremely suspicious and one-sided," Thakur told IANS.

She also said that in October 2012 she had sent a complaint to the home ministry seeking probe into the alleged violation of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, 2010 by the Congress and BJP in receiving donations of about Rs.5 crore each from Vedanta Group subsidiaries and Sesa Goa, but no action was initiated in these complaints.
