Amritsar, Jan 16, 2017After the successful launch of the Chanda Bandh Satyagraha signature drive in New Delhi with more than 20,000 people having signed the pledge not to donate to  Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the campaign is currently taking place in Punjab from Jan 11, 2017.

The aim of the campaign is to create awareness among people in Punjab against AAP’s corrupt funding practices before the upcoming elections on February 4. It is now more of a fact that the party which cannot keep its promise to the common people to make the donation list public, will also take their share from Government funds and misuse them, if they are elected.

Today the Chanda Bandh Satyagraha has gone in villages of Khadoor Sahib Assembly in Punjab to make people aware of corrupt practices in AAP. People have come forward to spread this message to voters as well just before the elections.

Earlier, Anna Hazare too had questioned Arvind Kejriwal in his letter regarding the unfulfilled promises to him and the people. The campaign -blessed by Anna Hazare- is aimed at compelling the Aam Aadmi Party to do course correction since the party has refused to make details of its political donations public.

A press conference took place in Jalandhar (Punjab) on Jan 10 and the signature drive has so far taken place in the state, in Hoshiarpur, Amritsar and Jalandhar in Punjab, where more than 2500 people have signed the banner. Volunteers have also gone to Golden Temple and distributed pamphlets in the area to make people aware of the AAP’s corrupt practices.

AAP volunteers in Punjab too have come forward to support the Chanda Bandh Satyagraha campaign; the disappointment and betrayal by their own party have left them helpless.
Launched by its own volunteers, the Satyagraha campaign has taken on the opaque funding practices of AAP. It may be known that AAP preaches 100 % financial transparency in its donations, yet has discontinued showing names of donors from the website since June 2016.

The satyagrahis of Chanda Bandh Satyagraha stand at public places with banners and placards which essentially convey the message: “Take a Pledge not to donate to Aam Aadmi Party until it makes it Political Fundings Public.”

An auto driver in Hoshiyarpur, Punjab says, ” I will not donate even 1 rupee to AAP, it has failed to fulfil its promises to common man.” With the formation of AAP, there seemed a national movement against corrupt practices but with time the party is too ruled by corruption, as a result, people are finding it cynical when a party talks about “bringing change” or “revolution”.

The No List: No Donation Campaign against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) launched in Rajghat, New Delhi on December 24, which was followed by the signature drive at Rajeev Chowk Metro Station, Gate no. 7 in New Delhi. More than 20,000 people came forward to support the campaign by signing the pledge.

Dr Munish Kumar Raizada has also submitted the petition to Election Commission of India (ECI) regarding the misleading financial behavior of AAP.

People joining the Chanda Bandh Satyagraha Campaign against AAP are increasing everyday in number.

AAP has also been issued notice by income tax department regarding opaque funding practices, but they have not taken any step regarding the transparency in political donations.

Raizada has demanded 4 specific conditions to be met: Put all donations in public domain, donations should be searchable by name (and not only via receipt number), Missing Balance Sheets after 2014 to be made public and inquiry to be ordered in the dubious donations of Rupees 2 Cr that the party received in 2014. Kejriwal had promised
an inquiry into this if came into power.

The Chanda Bandh Satyagraha initiative has been taken up by Chicago-based Munish Kumar Raizada, a medical doctor and a suspended member of AAP.

New Website of AAP has Scrapped Donors’ List, thus Betraying People, says Munish Raizada

Chanda bandh Satyagraha to curb corruption from AAP at Jallianwala Bagh Memorial

Chicago, August 6, 2017Aam Aadmi Party’s newly launched website has not only removed the donor list section but also has done away with its donation policy that promises real time financial transparency. The annual income and expenses statements are also missing from the new website.

Chanda Bandh Satyagraha condemns Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal’s decision of completely dumping the financial transparency by backtracking from its donation policy as promised at the time of inception.

Chanda Bandh Satyagraha, initiated by suspended AAP member Dr. Munish Kumar Raizada demands an explanation from AAP convenor:

1. When as per AAP website 92 percent donations are digital and AAP gives all the donors’ info to the IT department and EC, then why the party is shying away from showing donation list? Why Kejriwal is shielding under the excuse of ‘harassment by BJP Govt’? In any case, the identities of the donors are with state authorities!

We are of the firm opinion that the very excuse has been cooked to mislead AAP donors and volunteers so that misappropriation of funds and favoritism can happen smoothly.

2. Likewise, with the removal of income and expenses statement, now donors and volunteers, the real stake holders of AAP will never come to know about where and why the Chanda chor gang of our party is spending the funds.

3. With Financial opacity and High command culture, Arvind Kejriwal has completely hijacked AAP that was supposed to be a common man’s party and has converted it into his own fiefdom.

Arvind Kejriwal must explain, as to who all were involved in this decision and who authorized him to move against AAP’s constitution. AAP’s doing away with its donation policy shows not only Arvind Kejriwal’s sinister intentions of becoming one other corrupt politician but also shows how toothless, volunteers and systems and processes within our AAP have become.

An Audio Exposes the Dark Murky Reality of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)

An audio in circulation since 2-3 days in the official WhatsApp groups of Aam Aadmi party. exposes the murky politics into which Aam Aadmi Party has got indulged into.

New Delhi, April 29, 2017:

An audio is in circulation since 2-3 days in the official WhatsApp groups of Aam Aadmi party that exposes the murky politics into which Aam Aadmi Party has got indulged into.

The recently concluded MCD Elections 2017 has marked the sixth back to back defeat of AAP after its thumping 67 seats mandate in Delhi. Although the prime official reason for AAP defeats is said to be the intentional manipulation of the EVMs (Electronic voting machines) but the real reasons somewhere go down internal unchecked corruption within the AAP, that has also led to disengagement of the ground volunteers of the party.

The audio clip in circulation is the conversation between the Ward Secretary of Sangam Vihar assembly and a ground volunteer of the party.

The conversation reveals that AAP MLA Dinesh Mohaniya was quite upset with AAP leaders as they did not give the ticket for just concluded MCD polls to the person whom he had suggested but decided on their own.

NewsGram confirmed with Tarun regarding the audio clip and he clearly states that the MLA has asked the ground volunteers not to cooperate with the candidate Pankaj Gupta so that he loses the election. The audio also exposes how AAP MLAs have not been working in their constituencies and Delhi residents were unhappy with Delhi Government’s functioning.

The audio also reveals another alarming fact!

The whole party is now a puppet in the hands of 4-5 people introducing the ‘High Command’ culture in the party and MCD tickets were sold by some AAP leaders.

The name that surfaces in the alleged ticket selling that surfaces here in the conversation is of Sanjay Singh, who has sold the tickets for MCD elections.

Tarun, the ward secretary says in the audio, “If you want a ticket from the party, simply pay Rs.25 lacs. Gone are the golden democratic days of the party when tickets were awarded to the most deserving candidate of the party through internalised voting system.”
He further says, had he knew that by paying Rs 25 lacs he could have got the ticket, he wouldn’t have spent money working on the ground for AAP but would have directly paid to the leaders”.

The AAP functionary continues and says that he is highly disappointed with the party. The party came into the politics with the passion to change the prevailing corrupt political system in the country. But lately, the party has changed itself in a negative manner and now all its passion is directed towards playing the routine corrupt politics.

The talk also verifies another allegation of volunteers, namely para-dropped fielded by AAP leadership for MCD polls.

Rajesh (as named in the clip) from Wazirpur (North) area was given ticket by AAP leadership when he was not even supported by a majority of AAP volunteers of that area. Also, a new face, Neelam Agarwal from Tughlakabad Extension was given ticket whom no volunteer had ever seen working for the party.

Towards the end of the audio, it was also known that many ground level workers have decided not support the questionable candidates fielded by AAP leadership.
