The Chanda Band Staygrahis also discussed with people how criminalization of politics and unregulated & opaque political funding work in tandem.

People were made aware of the fact that fielding of 21 candidates with criminal charges, that includes 9 candidates with serious criminal charges is a pointer to the consequences when political funding becomes opaque.

These criminal candidates inducted to the party do not come with a motto of ‘service before self’ but to seek returns on their investments. The investments which they made as a part of the funding for the party to get the ticket to contest elections.

Rajiv Chowk being a well-known tourist place, people visiting Delhi from other states also halted for a while to observe the campaign. They too kept forward their opinions and complaints against AAP. They expressed their anger on the prevailing conditions of misgovernance in Delhi, poor availability of water supply and electricity, development on technological grounds, housing facilities, and infrastructure.

A general sentiment among Delhiites is that AAP has given nothing except the long list of fake promises. Therefore, people took a pledge not to be trapped in AAP’s sweet talks again.

After gaining so much of support and positive responses, ‘Chanda Bandh Satyagrah’ has decided not to stop. It will keep continuing its moral battle against AAP until it cleans up the
dirt which it has collected around itself.

According to a report in UK’s Channel 4 News, the cache of campaign data from a Cambridge Analytica source details 136,000 individuals in the US state of Colorado, “along with each person’s personality and psychological profile”.

“The data, which dates from 2014, was used by Cambridge Analytica to target specific messages at residents who would be most susceptible to them,” the report said.

Cambridge Analytica had earlier claimed that it has erased the data from the public domain. The company received the user data from a Facebook app years ago that purported to be a psychological research tool, however, the firm was not authorised to have that information.

Cambridge Analytica has been accused of influencing the result of the United Kingdom’s 2016 Brexit referendum and of the 2016 American presidential election that brought Donald Trump to the White House.
