New Delhi, October 23, 2016: Ten more birds died on Sunday due to bird flu in the now shut Deer Park here, prompting Delhi Animal Husbandry Minister Gopal Rai to order an anti-virus drive.
After a visit to the park in Hauz Khas, Rai set up a 10-member team to spray anti-virus Mycrodacyn in the area. He ordered a sample of water from the sprawling park to be sent to the central lab in Bhopal.

Gopal Rai said that if one wishes to fight the contest Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections on AAP tickets, then he/she should have at least Rs 28 lakh in their accounts
Gopal Rai met AAP members on 1 September 2017 to discuss the proposal
The candidate should be financially sound to be able to fight elections
New Delhi, September 3, 21017: When Arvind Kejriwal came into politics with Aam Aadmi Party, he promised it to be a clean, corruption free party but all the principles and morals of the party have gone into a drain.
Where have the principles of AAP gone?
The party in recent times has been in the news for all the wrong reasons- allegedly selling party tickets for polls in Punjab, heavy corruption charges, alleged Mohalla Clinic scam. The Party has lost the respect in people’s eyes many times by its shameful activities. AAP is trying hard to win back people’s trust since it lost Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections.
Want an AAP ticket? Got Rs 28 lakh in the account?
The latest reason of AAP’s mockery is the strange clause put forth by Gopal Rai, state in-charge of Gujrat and national leader of AAP. He said that if one wishes to fight the contest Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections on AAP tickets, then he/she should have at least Rs 28 lakh in their accounts. Now, one can’t fight the elections as he is a deserving candidate, have good principles, motives, and ideas or wants to bring a change. But based on the money he/she has in the account, as only those who have Rs 28 lakh and more will be given a chance to contest Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections on AAP tickets.
When AAP fought Delhi Elections, it was with the donation money they got from people and won the election. But, now AAP has changed its ways.
A need to meet the financial criteria
Gopal Rai met AAP members on 1 September 2017 to discuss the proposal. According to Ahmedabad Mirror report, a leader who attended the meeting said: “A candidate will need not less than Rs28 lakh to prove that he can pull off the campaign financially in the constituency.” The reason behind this eligibility criterion is that the candidate should be financially sound to be able to fight elections.
Talking about the other 2 eligibility criteria, Harshil Nayak, AAP spokesperson said:
The candidate should have to be of clean repute and well-networked in his area
The candidate should have at least 2 people to support him in managing a booth
The party will launch its campaign on September 17, 2017. One of the party workers said, “A car and a bike rally will be organized at various places. We hope to get the permission, but if we don’t, the date may change. If not from all seats, AAP will fight the elections from at least a few.”
