Mumbai: AAP leader Mayank Gandhi, who is contesting polls from the North West Mumbai Lok Sabha seat, has alleged that the poll spending of the candidates from his rival parties was much beyond the Rs 70 lakh limit as set by the Election Commission.


“Candidates fighting polls from other parties are using money power, which is dangerous for the democracy.

They are spending beyond Rs 70 lakh specified limit. This over spending is affecting other parties like ours,” Gandhi said during a press conference here yesterday.  However, he denied of having any proof about this.  

“We do not have any proof. A large amount of money is being given to party workers in cash and it is a common practice. We do not need to give any evidence,” he said.
 
Gandhi said that the manifesto of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will be out by next week.
