Reacting to BJP's official mouthpiece 'Kamal Sandesh', which has criticised his campaign against party president Nitin Gadkari, activist-turned politician Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said the main opposition party is completely rattled and baffled, following the facts published by him.

"BJP is nervous. They are completely rattled and baffled. And they have said that we are being foreign funded. The list of all the donors to this movement is there on a website. I challenge BJP, if they have the guts and courage. Let BJP put the list all the donors for the last 10 years on the website, so, that the country knows that which are those coal beneficiaries or various other industrial beneficiaries who got various contracts from BJP in BJP-ruled states," Kejriwal told media here.

"We have put all our donors on the website and let BJP also do that," he said.

Kejriwal further accused BJP for protecting corrupt people.

"The entire BJP is trying to protect corrupt people."

The BJP mouthpiece has alleged that Kejriwal has links with forces that are trying to weaken the nation.

It has called for an inquiry into the sources of funding of Kejriwal's campaign. It has also defended Gadkari saying he is promoting the rural economy unlike what's being reported.

Kejriwal had earlier accused Gadkari of receiving personal favours by getting around 100 acres of agriculture land in Maharashtra after the Congress-NCP government there bent rules.

Kejriwal alleged a quid-pro-quo between BJP and Congress-NCP Government of Maharashtra, saying Gadkari and his party maintained "silence" over various issues of corruption like the irrigation scam surrounding the Maharashtra Government.

The BJP in turn has labelled Kejriwal a "hitman" after he raised questions about a land deal involving Gadkari, who denies any wrongdoing, and the allegations fell flat.

"According to him the Congress, BJP, Samajawadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party, DMK and All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, all are corrupt and have a strong collusion. His press conference was almost converted into an election rally had he asked for votes for his political party," said senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj at a news conference organised to hinder Kejriwal's allegations about Gadkari.
