New Delhi: A court here on Friday extended the police custody of former Delhi law minister Jitender Singh Tomar for two days in the fake degree case, though the Aam Aadmi Party leader later moved a bail plea.

Delhi Police sought Tomar’s custody to confront him with Madan Pratap Chauhan, a man being interrogated in the case and some officials of the law college from where he claimed to have obtained his law degree.

Police told court that Tomar was yet to reply to various questions put to him regarding the case.

Metropolitan Magistrate Navjeet Budhiraja extended Tomar’s police custody and allowed Delhi police to quiz him till June 21, directed police not to seek his further custody.

Police arrested Tomar on June 9 and slapped a case of cheating, forgery and conspiracy against him.

They told court that a questionnaire containing over 200 questions was supplied to Tomar.

He replied to various questions but answers to some were still incomplete and his answers would help in getting to the final conclusion of the investigation, police added.

Tomar’s counsel opposed the police plea, saying there was no requirement of further police custody as police had already kept him under custody for 10 days. The case is based on documentary evidence, the counsel added.

Meanwhile, Tomar moved his bail plea in the court on Friday.

Justice Budhiraja asked Delhi Police to file reply on the bail plea and fixed the matter before the concerned magistrate on Monday.

On June 16, Tomar withdrew his bail plea from a sessions court saying he would file a fresh bail application on June 19.

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.
