New Delhi, Jan 1, 2017: On day 1 of the New Year, more than 2000 people have taken the resolution under Chanda Bandh Satyagraha campaign of not donating to AAP till it makes it political funding public.

The No List: No Donation Campaign against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in New Delhi is in full swing and today was the 7th day of the ongoing signature drive at Rajeev Chowk Metro Station, Gate no. 7 in New Delhi.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

Not only people, even social groups have also come forward to proudly support the campaign and are creating awareness among people to join the fight against corruption.

Today, the mother of a kid asked his son to support the No List: No Donation Campaign. This bears proof that there is so much need of clean politics in the nation. Anadhikrit Colony Vikas Sangh, which consists of 26 Resident Welfare Associations too has extended the support to Chanda Bandh Satyagraha.

The campaign has taken on the opaque funding practices. It may be known that AAP preaches 100 % financial transparency in its donations, yet has discontinued showing names of donors from the website since June 2016.

People joining the Chanda Bandh Satyagraha Campaign against AAP are increasing everyday in number. Today, apart from delhiites, who formed majority of the crowd, people cam long way from Punjab to support the campaign.

The satyagrahis of Chanda Bandh Satyagraha stand at public places in Delhi with banners and placards which essentially convey the message: “Take a Pledge not to donate to Aam Aadmi Party until it makes it Political Fundings Public.”

AAP has also been issued notice by income tax department regarding opaque funding practices, but they have not taken any step regarding the transparency in political donations.

Look for latest news from India in NewsGram.

Volunteers of No List No Donation campaign are distributing pamphlets and speaking about the basics of transparent political system to make public aware of the opaque funding practices in AAP.

Raizada has demanded 4 specific conditions to be met: Put all donations in public domain, donations should be searchable by name (and not only via receipt number), Missing Balance Sheets after 2014 to be made public and inquiry to be ordered in the dubious donations of Rupees 2 Cr that the party received in 2014. Kejriwal had promised an inquiry into this if came into power.

Anna Hazare questions Arvind Kejriwal in his letter regarding the unfulfilled promises to him and the people. The campaign -blessed by Anna Hazare- is aimed at compelling the Aam Aadmi Party to do course correction since the party has refused to make details of its political donations public.

The Chanda Bandh Satyagraha initiative has been taken up by Chicago-based Munish Kumar Raizada, a medical doctor and a suspended member of AAP.
