New Delhi: Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari, who had offered to donate Rs 1.1 lakh to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) provided its government passed the Delhi Metro Phase IV project, expressed his commitment on Friday to fulfil the promise.

He had made the announcement to donate money on October 18, alleging that the AAP government deliberately stalled and delayed Metro Phase IV. He had said he would donate money to the family members of the two female workers from AAP, Santosh Koli and Soni Mishra, whose deaths were questioned by BJP which levelled allegations against AAP leaders.

With the approval of Delhi Metro Phase IV by the AAP government, the party tweeted from its official handle, “Hope Manoj Tiwari will not term it as a jumla and fulfil his promise of donation (to the party).”

Mr Tiwari wrote back on the microblogging site, “Arvind Kejriwalji, you are caught. Your party has admitted that Metro Phase IV was being stalled by you. I am true to my promise and will be giving the donation to the families of late Santosh Koli and Soni Mishra.”

Koli was an active AAP member, who died in an accident in 2013.
