  • Putting a bold face over his inability and unwillingness to provide governance in Delhi, Kejriwal continues his diatribe against Modi and Amit Shah at their home turf of Gujarat.
  • Typical of his superficial method of asking an opinion from public, while the agenda having already been fixed, he throws up the question to public of whether to contest the Gujarat elections or not, and then announces the verdict in a second!
  • AAP Gujarat state Observer MLA Gulab Singh is arrested by Delhi Police in Gujarat hours before the rally on charges of involvement in an extortion racket.

October 16, 2016: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday announced that the AAP will contest the next assembly election in Gujarat and asked the people to “throw out (BJP President) Amit Shah” who he said was running the state by proxy.

“Amit Shah has thrown an open challenge to the people of Gujarat that he will run the state whichever way he wants and no one can do anything about it,” Kejriwal thundered at a huge rally at Yogi Chowk.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

Using the phrase “aam aadmi” (common man) for the Aam Aadmi Party, Kejriwal said that the “aam aadmi” would take on both the Congress and the state’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) next year.

Alleging that Gujarat was being run by Amit Shah, a former Gujarat Home Minister and a confidant of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he appealed to the people to “oust” the BJP chief.

“Are you ready to fight the elections, win and throw out Amit Shah? The next Gujarat election will not be an election but a revolution,” he added to wild cheers. “It will be Amit Shah versus the people of Gujarat.”

A few protesters grouped under Brahma Samaj and self-proclaimed Patidar activists tried to raise slogans against the AAP chief but they hardly numbered 25 to 30. They were rounded by the police.

Police sources in Surat said Kejriwal’s rally drew a good response because of the backing of Hardik Patel’s Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) and its activists.

The same PAAS had disrupted a rally of Amit Shah in the same Patel-dominated area of Surat last month, forcing him to wind up his speech in just four minutes.

The AAP leader said the Surat gathering reminded him of the Anna Hazare movement of 2011 when the the “whole nation” had come out on the streets.

Taking up cudgels for the agitating Patidars, Kejriwal said the Gujarat government was trying to suppress them “in the same way it crushes all those who raise their voice”.

The Delhi Chief Minister said the BJP government claimed there was liquor prohibition in the state but pointed out that 19 people lost their lives recently in Surat after consuming hooch.

He also quoted OBC leader Alpesh Thakor, who runs a campaign against illicit liquor in Gujarat, as saying that every year 10,000-15,000 people died after consuming illicit liquor in the state.

Kejriwal described Patidar leader Hardik Patel as a “patriot”, came out in support of the Dalits in Gujarat and referred to Amit Shah as “General Dyer”.

Referring to the police firing on Patidar protests last year, he said the Patel youths were not extremists. “They are our citizens… Those who ordered the firing will be punished.”

He mockingly described the BJP and the Congress as “husband and wife” and pointed out that the Narendra Modi had so far arrested 14 AAP MLAs in Delhi but not a single Congress legislator.

He claimed the BJP was hand in glove with the Congress. “Have you seen any protests by the BJP against Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat?”

Kejriwal also made fun of the BJP’s assertion that it was a pro-Hindu party. “But weren’t the Patidars Hindus? Weren’t the Dalits Hindus? Then why did this government punish them?”

Earlier, Delhi Police arrested AAP Delhi MLA and Gujarat in-charge Gulab Singh here, just hours before Kejriwal’s rally, on charges of involvement in an extortion racket. Gulab Singh has denied the charge.

Gulab Singh offered himself for arrest at a police station to prevent the police from reaching the rally venue.

Sunday’s rally was the high point of Kejriwal’s four-day visit to Gujarat. The AAP leader is expected to return to Delhi early on Monday.

Dogfight in Aam Aadmi Party : The audio clip of Kumar Vishwas reveals the party is no longer for principles but for personal aspirations

Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party seems to be more engaged in dogfight rather than developmental politics. The new audio clip of Kumar Vishwas reveals discontentment within senior leaders of AAP

  • The abusive audio clip of Kumar Vishwas surfaces hinting at split in Aam Aadmi Party

  • Aam Aadmi Party which claimed to bring clean politics is no longer working on principles, its an ongoing dogfight between unsatisfied political aspirants

Just few days back, Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party was slapped with Rs. 30 crores Income Tax notice. The party which claimed to revive clean politics was itself found dirty. The Income Tax notice cited that the Aam Aadmi Party had not disclosed income worth Rs 13.16 crore. According to the IT Department, the money received as donations in its bank account was not recorded in the books of accounts. Today an audio clip of Kumar Vishwas surfaced hinting at rift within the party.

Last year, Chanda Bandh Satyagraha (www.nolistnodonation.com) led by Dr. Munish Raizada was initiated against Aam Aadmi Party’s backtracking on financial transparency which gathered a huge amount of support from section of Aam Aadmi Party who were not ready to compromise on principles. But anyone who raised questions against Arvind Kejriwal’s dubious stance on donation transparency were sidelined from the party.

Aam aadmi Party Illegal Donations
Chanda Bandh Satyagrah led by Dr. Munish Kumar Raizada against dubious donations of Aam Aadmi Party

The leaked audio clip of Kumar Vishwas suggests that individual ambitions are derailing the Aam Aadmi Party, risking the public’s confidence. What issues dominate the AAP? The party members no longer seem to have any aspiration for developmental politics, they are rather engaged in dogfight for power and position. Unmet with expectations, many of the founding members of party like Yogendra Yadav are no more with the AAP today. It certainly affects prospects for party expansion. People supported AAP because it offered hope of a wider democratic platform, giving ordinary Indians a political voice. But it now seems that Aam Aadmi Party is just a bunch of opportunists trying to grab political space for their own development through corruption and dubious political donations.

Since its inception, Aam Aadmi Party has been indulged in all those things it promised to stood against of. AAP has failed to deliver what it promised. The list of scams by Aam Aadmi Party is endless. From Thali scam where total food bill of 80 guests amounted to Rs 11, 04,357 costing Rs 12,000 to Rs 16,000 per plate to 400 crore Delhi water tanker scam, AAP has crushed the expectations of people who were hoping for an honest political party. Arvind Kejriwal’s government spent a large chunk of taxpayer’s money for party advertisement. The advertisements were found to be in violation of the Supreme Court guidelines.Transport Minister of Delhi Gopal Rai from Aam Aadmi Party is involved in scam worth crores of rupees in Auto Rickshaw Permit scam. Sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra alleged that he witnessed Satyendar Jain giving Rs 2 crore in cash to the party chief Arvind Kejriwal. The list can go on, but the serious question here is the credibility of Aam Aadmi Party. The audio clip of Kumar Vishwas hints at rift within the party, this explains well why Delhi is suffering under bad governance, the key members of party are indulged in back bitching and score setting.

Delhi government’s liquor license scam exposed

AAP has turned Delhi into liquor den.

Delhi government's liquor license scam exposed

 • Illegal liquor licenses granted in shopping malls
 
• Swaraj India protests against illegal vends at Cross River Mall
 
• Illegal vends have turned the mall into a liquor den
 
• Liquor license scam, a perfect example of unholy collusion between AAP & BJP
 
• Arvind Kejriwal, who came to power on the promise of making Delhi addiction free, has today become the Badal of Delhi and Manish Sisodia another Majithia.
New Delhi, Nov 5: Newly formed political party, the Swaraj India has exposed a major scandal in the distribution of liquor licenses by the Delhi government. Party’s Chief National Spokesperson and Delhi State President, Anupam, said that the Delhi government is illegally distributing L10 category liquor licenses enabling dealers to open vends in shopping malls of the city.
The Delhi government offers licenses in the L-10 category to liquor vends in shopping malls of the city. Definition of shops operating from within a mall is clearly stated in the law and the rule mandates that all shops operating from within a mall should be opening up within the building only and cannot have an entrance towards the exterior side of the mall. But Delhi government and the mall management have created these liquor shops against the approved map of the mall. Every week, the Excise officials of Delhi Government are supposed to inspect liquor vends existing in the city, but not a single objection has been raised against these vends that are blatantly violating rules every single day.
And this has resulted in around a dozen liquor vends springing up in just the ground floor of the Cross River Mall. This has turned the shopping mall into a den of liquor vends leaving people living in nearby residential areas helpless. Neither the Delhi government nor the MCD and nor the Delhi police are even taking note of this broad daylight scam. “Is this not a direct sign that all the levels of the government and administration are complicit in letting this illegal trade grow?” Anupam asked.
Everyone in Delhi is well aware of how the employees of MCD don’t lose a moment to demand their share when any construction work begins anywhere. But when illegal constructions are done at such a large scale in a big mall, the MCD doesn’t even blink an eye.
Cross River mall is located in an area from where the Councillor, the MLA as well as the MP are from the BJP. The illegal license is being granted by AAP led Delhi government. It is surprising to see such a harmonious blend between the Aam Aadmi Party and BJP. Promoting liquor trade in Delhi seems to be such a profitable business for both the BJP as well as the AAP that it has brought together the two parties that are otherwise always at loggerheads. Are the black transactions involved in such liquor business the real reason why not a single question has yet been raised by anyone or any party?
Earlier in the last, the Delhi government has eased rules for granting the license to new liquor vends by reducing the minimum carpet area required from 1000 to 500 square feet. And now, in clear dereliction of rules, even vends are being run in the shopping malls.
 On Sunday, Swaraj India’s Mahila Swaraj Morcha protested against the numerous liquor vends in Cross River Mall of Delhi and demanded that the liquor shops be closed down. And in this mall in Shahdara, around a dozen liquor shops have been opened up by granting illegal licenses of the L10 category. And outside this mall, that has been turned into a den of liquor vends, a crowd of drunkards creating an atmosphere of hooliganism has become a daily affair. There has been a continuous increase in crime in the drunken state, where eve-teasing & snatching have become a regular affair.
Sarvesh Verma, President of the party’s Mahila Morcha, said that Arvind Kejriwal who rode to power on the promise of making Delhi an addiction-free city has today become the Badal of Delhi with Sisodia as another Majithia.
Anupam said that though the Delhi government’s anti-women policies will result in the promotion of alcohol addiction but Swaraj India will not let these nefarious plans succeed. The party has earlier as well launched mass agitations against the granting of liquor licenses in residential areas of Delhi, because of which the Delhi government was compelled to announce a ban on the distribution of new licenses. If the government does not immediately order an investigation into the illegal L10 vends and stop this unholy collusion, the Mahila Swaraj Morcha of Swaraj India will take this agitation ahead for the betterment of Delhi.
