Jaitley said in an article on the Bharatiya Janata Party website that the Aam Aadmi Party received black money through fake companies.

"It disclosed the names of a large number of corporate entities from whom it received donations by cheques," Jaitley wrote.

"The disillusioned AAP members appear to have conducted a search of these with the Registrar of Companies. The search uncovered the curious character of the donor companies," he added.

Referring to the AAP getting Rs.2 crore through cheques, the Minister said there were lots of fake companies which were converting black money into white.

"The companies do not do any business. They have no profits from any legitimate business. They are 'entry lending companies'," he said.

"The functioning of these 'entry lending companies' is very simple. At times, there are a large number of inter-connected companies created through a multi-layering process. Money is transferred from one to another. The companies are registered at obscure addresses," he wrote.
