New Delhi: A day after the Delhi cabinet cleared two amendments to the Delhi Jan Lokpal Bill 2015, AAP’s anti-corruption legislation was passed in the state assembly on Friday.

The amendments were in line with those proposed by social activist Anna Hazare, who Aam Aadmi Party leaders had visited after the bill was tabled in the assembly.

AAP’s founding members Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav have slammed Kejriwal for introducing a “watered down” version of the Jan Lokpal Bill which is “powerless and not independent enough” to take on the scourge of corruption.

One amendment proposed a seven-member panel to select two members and chairperson in the institution of Jan Lokpal.

The original bill said the panel consisting chief minister, leader of opposition, assembly speaker and Delhi High Court chief justice will select the members and chair of Jan Lokpal.

Now, the proposed new members will include another judge from the high court, any eminent personality selected the rest of the committee members and the Lokpal chairman from the next term.

For removal of Lokpal, there would be a high court enquiry first before referring the matter to the assembly, two-thirds of the Delhi assembly can vote to remove the Lokpal.

    It appears Arvind Kejriwal has decided to dishonour and dodge Justice Santosh Hegde and Anna recommendation for Lokpal 2014 instead of these incomplete clever amendments which makes the bill still ineffective.

 In the 6 episodes, the story revolves around chase for political funds (Chanda). The web series is not only a commentary on the genesis of India Against Corruption movement and subsequent political developments, it is also a fascinating tale of hype and hoopla, goals and misses, power struggle and drama- all intertwined in the chase for Chanda! All in 5 1/2 hours of engaging content!

Alternative politics was the reason, because of which the AAP was formed. The plot of the story thus, revolves around tracing those promises of clean politics and transparent political funding.

Raizada further enumerated the three founding principles of AAP, viz. financial transparency, internal vigilance and decentralisation of power and told that the series will remove each and every layer that led to the dismantling of all the three principles of AAP by the power centres of AAP.
