For the upcoming MCD Elections 2017, Aam Aadmi Party as a part of its political campaign has floated a propaganda in guise of a news report about the abolition of ‘House Tax’ in Delhi, if it wins in MCD elections.

April 8, 2017, New Delhi: For the upcoming MCD Elections 2017, Aam Aadmi Party as a part of its political campaign has floated a propaganda in the guise of a news report about the abolition of ‘House Tax’ in Delhi, if it wins in MCD elections.

A news report depicts the glorified picture of Delhi’s reactions on the ‘abolition of house tax’. On the basis of this news report, AAP Delhi state convener tweeted:


“Receiving tremendous response from Delhites for #HouseTax abolition promise, AAP will celebrate #HouseTax Mukti Diwas tomorrow across Delhi.”

The happy response of the people about ‘Abolition of House Tax’ is smartly fabricated to achieve the attention of the masses. It clearly seems to be an ‘election-winning propaganda’ to mislead the people and to prepare a ground for The ‘House Tax Mukti Diwas’ which will be celebrated tomorrow i.e. April 8, 2017.

NewsGram investigation has revealed that the reporter of The Hindu newspaper was also misled into reporting the information.

Jagdish Bhalla, the person quoted in the news report as joint secretary of Rajinder Nagar Welfare association is also an AAP worker, who is actively campaigning in the area and has also given his office at Shankar Road to AAP MLA to be used as ward office past 2 years and election office right now.

In a twitter video, the major role is played by an octogenarian AAP worker Mr S C Gupta. One can see him in each and every AAP poster in that area and is designated as ‘marg darshak’ even by the MLA Mr Vijender Garg.

Check out @Shalupcrf’s Tweet:

When the ‘Newsgram’ team further investigated, it found the video involves either AAP’s own party’s workers or trained artists. The ladies in the videos are from the ‘Women Wing’ of AAP of that area.

When Newsgram team interviewed Dr. Munish Raizada, suspended AAP volunteer, he said that some people in the party have gone corrupted and malicious. These ‘Chanda Chors of AAP’ are not only feeding on the party’s donations but have also discarded the founding principles of the party.

“Aam Aadmi Party was created for bringing a change in the political system but these ‘Chanda Chors’ have changed the party’s philosophy and motives”, added Dr. Munish Raizada.

It should be noted that Raizada is currently engaged in an internal battle with Aam Aadmi Party. He has been leading a Chanda Bandh Satyagraha (No List: No Donation campaign) against the party since December 2016.

The intentional fabrication of misleading reports is never praised or awarded. One should not adopt malicious tactics to win any election.

Such shams only expose the intent of corrupt leaders of a political party and and people who run their election campaign on clean politics should avoid propagandist tendencies.

Hackers have stolen crypto tokens worth $120 million from Blockchain-based decentralised finance (DeFi) platform BadgerDAO.

Hackers have stolen crypto tokens worth $120 million from Blockchain-based decentralised finance (DeFi) platform BadgerDAO. Several crypto wallets were drained before the platform could stop the cyber attack. In a tweet, Badger said it has received reports of unauthorised withdrawals of user funds. "As Badger engineers investigate this, all smart contracts have been paused to prevent further withdrawals. Our investigation is ongoing and we will release further information as soon as possible," the company said late on Thursday.

According to the blockchain security and data analytics Peckshield, the various tokens stolen in the attack are worth about $120 million, reports The Verge. According to reports, someone inserted a malicious script in the user interface (UI) of their website. Badger has retained data forensics experts Chainalysis to explore the full scale of the incident and authorities in both the US and Canada have been informed. "Badger is cooperating fully with external investigations as well as proceeding with its own," it said. DeFi is a collective term for financial products and services that are open, decentralised and accessible to anyone. DeFi products open up financial services to anyone with an internet connection and they are largely owned and maintained by their users. While the attack didn't reveal specific flaws within Blockchain tech itself, it managed to exploit the older "web 2.0" technology that most users need to use to perform transactions, according to reports.
