New Delhi: BJP MP Varun Gandhi on Sunday raised
the issue of "unidentified" donations to political parties and
targeted the BSP calling it a "rich party of poor people".

"How come parties in power receive the most `unidentified`
donations?", he tweeted in an apparent reference to a media
report which said that most political parties were getting a
bulk of funds from unidentified donors.

In another tweet, he took a swipe at UP Chief Minister
Mayawati`s party.

"India, poor country of rich people. BSP, rich party of
poor people," said Varun on the social networking site
Twitter.

"Does an undisclosed donation = black money, bribes, or
both?", he said.

The report listed the ruling Congress as having the
maximum funds from unidentified donors followed by the BSP.
Interestingly Varun Gandhi`s own party the BJP is also a
beneficiary of contributions from unidentified donors,
according to the report.

Political parties do not have to disclose donors who make
contributions lesser than Rs 20,000 as per law.
