New Delhi: The Income Tax Department has served a notice on Congress seeking an explanation on charges of receiving funds from dubious sources.
A similar notice has also been served on the Aam Aadmi Party.
"Yes, we have been served a notice. It is clearly a sign of political vendetta. Let me ask: Why has a similar notice not been served on BJP? Why single us and the AAP out. BJP has also spent crores of rupees on elections," a party spokesperson told a news agency.
The department, that functions under the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) of the Ministry of Finance, has asked AAP to furnish its reply by February 16 -- two days after Arvind Kejriwal is scheduled to take oath as Delhi chief minister following a stunning win in the Assembly polls.
