New Delhi [India], Oct. 14 (ANI): Janata Dal (United) spokesperson Ajay Alok on Friday said no party claims to be inherently dishonest and only citizens of the country finally deliver their decision in this regard.

"Law is law, it is equal for everyone, be it the Aam Aadmi Party, be it Congress, the BJP or us...transparency in today's age is the most important thing. Aam Aadmi Party has been talking about transparency as well. I would say all the work should be done according to the guidelines of the Supreme Court. Any party which does not abide by these guidelines will be an accused and the accused will be punished accordingly."

He was referring to the failure of the Aam Aadmi Party to make public the details of funding on its website after making tall claims of transparency.

On the remark that the AAP has been hounded by scandals, Alok said, "There are 4,500 parties registered in this country with the Election Commission and not even a single party will call itself corrupted. Every party claims to be honest. But it is the people who decide who is honest and who is not, and no one else."

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has always been expecting utmost transparency from other political parties, but now Kejriwal's party seems to be moving away from its promise of a corruption-free government, he added.

Since the time Kejriwal came to power in Delhi, AAP has found itself embroiled in a series of cases - 'funding probe' and other civil and criminal cases.

The party that started out with the motto of corruption-free India has failed to make public the details of its funding on its website. (ANI)
