AAP slammed for turning Kejriwal’s ‘metro invitation snub’ into an opportunity to seek donations

A few days ago, the Aam Aadmi Party had gone into outrage mode, after their supremo Arvind Kejriwal was not invited to the inauguration of Delhi metro’s Magenta line on Monday. This Delhi metro stretch from Kalkaji Mandir and Botanical Garden was inaugurated by PM Modi, and UP CM Yogi Adityanath too was present during the ceremony.

Deputy CM Sisodiya has since then called this invitation snub of Kejriwal as an insult to Delhites, and alleged that he (Kejriwal) wasn’t invited out of fear that he might publicly demand a rollback of metro price hike.

Since then the party has spun this whole ‘metro invitation snub’ into a potential donation drive by asking people to donate to the party if they were angry against Kejriwal’s invitation snub:

It was certainly amusing to note that the party decided to milk a slight to Kejriwal’s personal ego by asking people to enrich their treasury.

People too took noted the same and bemusedly slammed the party:

A few decided to crack jokes:

Now one wonders whether AAP’s renewed spur to take money from people, would also translate into making its donation process more transparent by reinstating the public list of donors, which it inexplicably decided to pull down from its website in June, 2016.
