“It has been heart warming to note that 23,138 contributions were of Rs.1,000 or less. It has been humbling and moving to note that people with very limited resources contributed with sums like Rs 1, Rs 2 and Rs 5 of their hard earned money,” said an official spokesperson of Team Anna.
The reports are being made public following allegations of financial delinquency by Arvind Kejriwal
