New Delhi, May 19: A Delhi-based businessman has claimed he had donated Rs 2 crore to the Aam Aadmi Party, rubbishing sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra’s allegation that the amount was paid by a shell company.

Mukesh Sharma, a property dealer and tobacco trader, said he had donated the money through a demand draft on March 31, 2014.

“The public support to the AAP at that time was overwhelming and I had donated the money to the party hoping that it will do good for Delhi and for the nation,” Sharma said.

Mishra had on Sunday alleged ‘massive irregularities’ in the funding of the AAP and raised questions about the ‘suspicious’ donation of Rs 2 crore.
