Amritsar, Jan 26, 2017: Former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member Dr Munish Kumar Raizada, who is spearheading the ongoing Chanda Bandh Satyagraha against the lack of transparency in the party, especially in financial matters, received a rousing welcome in poll-bound Punjab. People, mostly AAP supporters, came out in hordes to show solidarity with the cause espoused by Dr Raizada.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

Through the Chanda Bandh Satyagraha or the No List No Donation campaign, Dr Raizada wants the party leadership to come clean on the sources of its donations. “We want the party to mention details of all the donations received by it and put it in public domain on the website. Once that is done, donations can be searched by name (and not only via receipt number) on the party website. The missing Balance Sheets after 2014 should be made public, and CM Arvind Kejriwal should fulfil his poll promise to the people of Delhi by ordering an inquiry to probe the dubious donations of Rs 2 Crore that the party had received in 2014.”

After refusing to divulge details of the donations received by the party, the party has now resorted to petty measures. “The ongoing No List No Donation campaign has rattled Kejriwal and the top leadership, whom I might as well call the Chanda Chor Gang. They have got our Chanda Bandh Satyagraha (No List No Donation) Twitter handle ( www.twitter.com/nolistnodonation) as well as NewsGram (@newsgram1) accounts suspended,” said Dr Raizada, adding, “It shows their mala fide intention. Instead of addressing the issue of financial transparency in AAP, they chose to show their moral bankruptcy to the world.”

He claimed that the party has lost the moral high ground that it had against corruption, and it may weigh down its prospects in the coming Assembly election.

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.
