Cleaning up: Aam Aadmi Party set to make debut in MCD polls


By NewsGram Staff Writer

Long rule by the opposition parties have transformed the Municipal Corporation of Delhi into dens of corruption and misgovernance. After sweeping the State Assembly polls, the Aam Aadmi Party intends to repeat its resounding victory in municipal elections as well.

For ensuring such a remarkable feat, the party has decided to run a sustained campaign to expose BJP’s corruption and misgovernance in municipal bodies.

The Delhi State unit of the Aam Aadmi Party convened a meeting at the Constitutional Club, which saw the participation of the state and district level office bearers, along with office bearers of frontal organizations and cells.

Addressing the gathering of office bearers, Delhi State Convenor Dilip Pandey laid out an aggressive strategy of how ward-level units of the Aam Aadmi Party will swing into action to expose and corner councilors, thereby holding them accountable for their misdeeds.

“Stories of monumental corruption by the BJP will reach every household in the city”, said Pandey

National Organization Building In-Charge Durgesh Pathak, underlined the importance of smooth coordination among office bearers of various frontal organizations.

“Participation of grass-root volunteers has made Delhi unit of Aam Aadmi Party a robust organization, which stunned the country by trouncing unstoppable Narendra Modi”, stated Pathak while adding that the Delhi Aam Aadmi Party will showcase itself as a model organization for other state units.

Addressing the gathering, Delhi State Secretary and MLA from Greater Kailash Saurabh Bhardwaj underlined key roles and responsibilities of the office bearers and said that their conduct in public will make or break party’s image.

Office bearers told the state leadership that there was a very positive feeling on the ground on the main election promises fulfilled by the AAP government in Delhi.



  1. As long as hospitals, cleanliness, and other vital MCD departments (including important electricity supply related departments) are under BJP, people of delhi will suffer due to corruption, inefficiency, and conflicting interests of center with state government.

  2. The Absurdity of this Anti Corruption Party is the fact that they mention only BJP after the word Corruption, as if the Vatican has anointed Sonia Maino as the next Saint from India, No Wonder any or all opportunities to form a front involves unquestioning support from CONgress…This party is nothing but a platform created to break India into smaller states and finalize Radicalization of the subcontinent.

Richard Thaler Supported Demonetisation, there is More to the Story

Demonetisation is what Richard Thaler had long supported. However, he remarked "Really? Damn," when he was informed about the introduction of Rs. 2,000 notes in place of the discontinued Rs. 500 and 1,000 notes thereby highlighting how his joy of seeing a step towards a cashless economy and reduction of corruption was momentary.

When Prime Minister Narendra Modi decided to scrape Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes last November, Nobel Prize winner Richard Thaler supported demonetization describing it as a policy that he had long supported.

Dr. Richard Thaler, a Professor of Economics and Behavioural Science at the University of Chicago won the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences on 9th October.

Did Richard Thaler really support demonetization in the way BJP took it? There is more to the story than what meets the eye.

As soon as Thaler was declared the Nobel Prize winner, members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) started sharing Thaler’s tweet regarding demonetization on social media affirming that the move which was severely criticised by the members of the opposition was actually supported by a Nobel Prize winner. The BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya retweeted the old tweet within a fraction of a second.

However, Richard Thaler remarked “Really? Damn,” when he was informed about the introduction of Rs. 2,000 notes in place of the discontinued Rs. 500 and 1,000 note thereby highlighting how his joy of seeing a step towards a cashless economy and reduction of corruption was momentary.

It was not only the BJP supporters but also a large number of BJP leaders who were flowed away with incomplete picture depicted by Malviya and tweeted about it.‬ This included Union Minister Giriraj Singh, former BJP IT Cell Head Arvind Gupta, and many others.

Soon after, twitterati realized that the full picture of Thaler’s statement on demonetization was rather hidden.

Prime Minister Modi declared that the motivation behind scrapping Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes was to promote cashless economy and reduce corruption. This decision was severely criticised by different sections of the society putting on Modi the ultimate responsibility for heralding economic deceleration. Demonetisation pulled down India’s GDP growth rate to a mere 6.1% in 2016-17.

Some highlighted that the introduction of Rs 2000 note was an ephemeral panacea for remonetization and that its printing has been terminated.
