“Some unknown people threw stones at her and she was injured. One person has been detained in this connection,” a police official told IANS.

Police said the Chandni Chowk MLA has sustained a minor injury.

Lamba started an anti-drug drive at 5 a.m. from Yamuna Bazar to mark the Quit India Movement Day. She was attacked at Kashmere Gate.

Fellow AAP leader Ashutosh tweeted: “AAP’s fight (against) drugs will be intensified. AAP MLA Alka Lamba was attacked by drug cartel. Our fight will continue.”

In his tweets, he also said that Lamba was attacked by a man working in a sweet shop, which he said was owned by Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator Om Prakash Sharma.

“Locals told us (that the) man (who) attacked Alka Lamba was working in sweet shop. (The) shop is owned by present BJP MLA Om Prakash Sharma,” he tweeted.

“… she was the only one in the crowd who was hit. It’s deep conspiracy. AAP will fight back,” he tweeted.

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.
