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.”

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.

    AAP is the only honest party on date. Some people with vested interest are trying to bring bad name for AAP by the way of such wrong statements.

Modi government betrayed farmers: Kejriwal.

The Modi government has stabbed farmers in the back by telling the Supreme Court that it cannot implement recommendations of the M.S. Swaminathan Commission which the BJP promised to do so in 2014, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.

Addressing a farmers rally here at Jantar Mantar, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader also slammed the Centre’s crop insurance scheme as a “fraud” and demanded that it be scrapped.

“Soldiers at the borders and farmers at thier farms are in distress. It’s a sad state of affairs. The BJP has dishonoured the promises it made in 2014,” Arvind Kejriwal said.

Thousands of farmers from across the country marched from Ramlila Maidan to Jantar Mantar in the heart of the capital seeking loan waiver and higher crop prices and warning political parties not to ignore their plight.

Reminding the BJP’s promise vis-a-vis the Swaminathan Commission, Kejriwal accused the ruling party of going back on its election promise.

“They have filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court and said they can’t implement it. There can’t be a greater betrayal than this. This government has stabbed farmers in the back,” he said, asking the government to take back the affidavit.

He warned that if it failed to do so, farmers would teach the saffron party a lesson in the 2019 elections.

Demanding loan waiver for farmers, he also said that they must get fair price for their produce.

“They are not begging but fighting for their rights. Once their loans are waived, they won’t demand it again. The government should also buy the farmers’ produce at appropriate price.”

He blasted the government’s crop insurance scheme.

“This is not an insurance scheme but it is BJP’s ‘kisan daka yojna’ (plunder farmers scheme). This must go and the money paid by farmers be returned. Instead, the government should start a compensation scheme for farmers.”

The Modi government was worried more about Ambanis and Adanis, he alleged. (IANS)
