New Delhi, Dec 31, 2016: Today was the 6th day of the ongoing signature drive at Rajeev Chowk Metro Station, Gate no. 7 in New Delhi. Chanda Bandh Satyagraha (No List: No Donation Campaign) against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in New Delhi is in full swing.

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. Anadhikrit Colony Vikas Sangh, which consists of 26 Resident Welfare Associations 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.

2000 people joined today in the Chanda Bandh Satyagraha Campaign against AAP today. The satyagrahis of Chanda Band 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.
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.

The UK government on Thursday announced that it will move India from the red to the amber list on Sunday, in the country's latest update to the 'Red-Amber-Green' traffic light ratings for arrivals into England amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

This means the visit visas for the UK from India are open, in addition to other long-term visas that have remained open. But travellers from India arriving in England can complete a 10-day quarantine at home or in the place they are staying (not mandatorily quarantine in a managed hotel).

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
