The Delhi government has alleged that Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) chief M.K Meena violated the court’s order by removing an officer of the body. Justice V.P. Vaish issued a show cause notice to Meena and SHO Brij Mohan.

The high court had earlier declined the plea of the Aam Aadmi Party government to restrain Joint Commissioner of Police Meena from working as the ACB chief.

The Delhi government’s plea said Meena issued an order shunting out inspector Vinay Malik as station house officer of ACB, and posted Brij Mohan in his place.

The show cause notice was issued to new SHO Mohan on the allegations of Delhi government for not lodging FIR on complaints received by the ACB between June 8 and 17.

The court sought response from Meena and Mohan on the next date of hearing on August 25.

The government said it was constrained to file the contempt petition as Meena had wilfully violated the court’s June 29 order, which had asked the governor appointed ACB chief to act in “accordance with the law”.

Seeking initiation of contempt proceedings against Meena as well as Mohan, the plea said the latter was acting under “direct instruction and orders of Meena”.

On a separate plea, the Delhi government has sought orders from the ACB to register an FIR on the complaint by the sub-divisional magistrate.

The government also alleged that documents had “gone missing’ from ACB files.

On that plea, the court issued summons to Meena and asked him to appear before it on August 4 to give an answer to the issue of “missing documents”.

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.
