New Delhi: Union Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu in a financial assistance program to the Arvind Kejriwal’s Delhi government on Sunday announced Rs.3,250 crore for decongestion and development of the national capital.

In addition, Naidu also announced another Rs.96 crore to Delhi, which is intended to be spent on the cleanliness in the city.

The minister, who was speaking at the launch of ‘Clean Delhi’ campaign organized by the Delhi government, said that under the package the city government will be provided Rs.1,500 crore, Delhi Development Authority with Rs.1,665 crore and north municipal corporation of Delhi with Rs.85 crore for executing various projects.

Among the various projects include construction of rail under bridges and over bridges, construction of long tunnels and completion of Dwarka Express Way between Urban Eastern Road-II and Northern Peripheral Road.

On the occasion, the amount of Rs.96 crore announced for cleanliness in Delhi was further sanctioned to the municipal corporations, which have been facing funds-crunch in recent months.

Naidu, on the occasion, complimented Kejriwal for launching Swachh Delhi campaign and roping in the three MCDS.

 

we need to respect people’s mandate to Modi and Kejriwal and should not become (an) enemy in the politics, but instead focus on development,

He noted that “central government, the Delhi government and municipal corporations of Delhi together launching Swachh Delhi campaign is an affirmative statement of ‘Team India’ spirit at work as desired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”

Also the mayors of North, East and South Delhi Municipal Corporations were present on the occasion.

Earlier on Monday, Kejriwal launched ‘Swachh Delhi’ app that enables residents to apprise authorities with pictures of garbage, while announcing Swachh Delhi Abhiyan from November 22 to 30.

Kejriwal’s Door to Door Donation Drive is a Farce: Munish Raizada

Chanda Bandh Satyagraha makes an appeal that AAP should immediately restore donors' list on its website and then only seek new donations.

Chicago: The Aam Aadmi Party Convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has launched a door to door campaign seeking donations for the AAP.  According to former overseas co-coordinator of Aam Aadmi Party, Dr. Munish Raizada, this is nothing more than a misleading campaign!

Raizada says that Kejriwal has no moral right to seek donations from common man as he has dismantled financial transparency in AAP by removing donors list from its website. Displaying donors’ list showing real time donations and making the income and expenditure accounts available online were the basis and the promise of the AAP, emphasised Raizada.

Now, after hiding donors’ list and its balance sheets from the public, the AAP cannot claim to be practising alternative politics.

It may be noted that AAP removed the list of donors from its website in June 2016. Moreover, since then AAP has been surrounded with controversies related to donations. AAP had also received Rs 30.67 crore Income Tax notice, last year in November, implying that all is not well with AAP’s accounts, says Raizada.

He further questions Kejriwal, that if AAP has nothing to hide about its accounts and if AAP is honest with its account keeping then why is Kejriwal hiding the donations?

Even the donation policy that was earlier the pride of every AAP volunteer has been done away with. The donation policy on AAP website used to state: “Every single rupee donated to the party will be published on the website immediately along with the details of the donor. Every expense done by the party will also be published on the website.”

But rather than putting the donors’ list in public domain, the party’s corrupt leadership started blaming BJP and I.T. Department for harassing its donors.

Opaque political funding is the fountain head of corruption. Further, Raizada says that if the party cannot be transparent in its political funding, then talking about fighting corruption and graft is a mere rhetoric. He said that the appeals by Chanda Bandh Satyagraha have fallen on deaf ears as far as the party’s

leadership is concerned. 

Chanda Bandh Satyagraha makes an appeal that AAP should immediately restore donors’ list on its website and then only seek new donations. Chanda Bandh Satyagraha was started by AAP’s volunteers in 2016, with an appeal to the public not to donate to AAP unless it makes its donation lists open and transparent.
