On November 26, 2017 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) celebrated its 5 years of making. The Foundation Day was celebrated by organizing a rally at Ram Lila Maidan in New Delhi.
AAP was formed on the basis of 3 cardinal principles:
- Financial Transparency
- Decentralization of Power by ushering in Local Governance
- Inner party Democracy
Today, after 5 years, AAP stands as a lie to its own promises.
The very fundamental principle of Financial Transparency (Chande kee pardarshita) has been violated by none other than Kejriwal and his his corrupt coterie. A party which came to fight corruption killed the very principle of financial accountability! Thus, in hindsight, all the noise about fighting corruption was a flim- flam.
Thus, yesterday’s news that Tax Department has slapped a 30 Cr Tax notice on AAP comes as a no surprise to me. The thugs within our AAP can do anything. If I am wrong, why they do not show the donation lists to the public?
Within AAP, several volunteers and supporters stood against the violation of the principle of Financial Transparency by Kejriwal. A Chanda Bandh Satyagraha was launched by AAP’s own prominent NRI supporter Dr Munish Raizada. The Satyagraha was based upon the fact that since party has hidden the donation list, we take a vow not to donate to it anymore.
For details, see website of No List: No Donation campaign (Chanda Bandh Satyagraha).
We bring you some of the pictures (slide show) from Chanda Bandh Satyagraha:
