New Delhi: The Ministry of Home Affairs has formed a seven-member intelligence team to track activities of the Aam Aadmi Party leaders, official sources said.

The sources revealed that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, and leader Kumar Vishwas were on the radar of intelligence sleuths.

It has also come to notice that Home Minister Rajnath Singh wasn’t very keen to go ahead with the snooping but was forced to do so.

“Rajnath Singh doesn’t want to use IB resources for such activity but he has been told to do so by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” sources said.

Special eye on Kumar Vishwas

According to the sources, Kumar Vishwas may be the top target of the ministry as he is a soft rightist and is popular among the masses. Vishwas is extremely active on Twitter and has over 7 lakh followers. With an active and updated website called www.kumarvishwas.com, he provides his followers with various mediums of communication with him.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader is also close to RSS cadres.  Last year, a few comments made in the organization’s praise by Vishwas had put AAP members into a state of confusion.

“If a particular organisation talks in favour of Muslims, is it communal? If an organisation speaks in favour of a larger majority, does it mean it is communal? You could have ideological differences on many levels. I don’t agree with many of their acts. But can you dismiss them? Can you dismiss the fact that they are a disciplined party,” Vishwas had said.

His popularity amongst the masses is seen as a major reason why the Central government is keen to keep an eye on Vishwas’s activities.

Double Standards

Recently, the Aam Aadmi Party had come under intense criticism by opposition parties for buying an ‘eavesdropping technology’ to help the Anti-Corruption Bureau in intelligence gathering.

“The state government’s launching of such a snooping exercise without any public knowledge is an attack on the independence of the citizens and a step ahead of his circular on media gag already stayed by the Delhi High Court”, Delhi BJP State President Satish Upadhyay had attacked the AAP then.

Questioning the intent of procuring such a high-tech surveillance equipment, Congress leader Ajay Maken had said, “Will this infrastructure be used to nab corrupt officials or will it be used to settle their own political scores?”.

It is ironical that the BJP which was highly opposed, more so critical of AAP’s move to augment Anti-Corruption Bureau’s working mechanism, has now adopted the same measure to snoop on the Aam Aadmi Party.

The integrity of our politicians is undoubtedly questionable, but the BJP can be asked the same question which Maken asked of the AAP; is the Ministry of Home Affairs being used to nab corrupt officials or to launch the BJP’s political vendetta against AAP?

Arvind Kejriwal Accuses Modi Government of Betraying Farmers

The Modi government was worried more about Ambanis and Adanis, he alleged

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)
