On Wednesday, the entire nation saw a shameful incident of a farmer publicly hanging himself from a tree in front of almost 5000 people. The famer identified as Gajendra Singh Rajput committed suicide at Jantar Mantar in the Aam Aadmi Party’s kisan rally. His suicide letter revealed that he came from Dausa district of Rajasthan and the recent hailstorms had destroyed his entire crops.

This tragic incident happened just a few steps away from Parliament, which is in session. There were multiple layers of policemen deployed on duty and neither of them came forward to save the poor farmer, alleged an AAP volunteer who said that he climbed the tree after the farmer to try and save him.

The volunteer told a news channel that, “By the time I reached him, it was too late. But I supported him hoping that we could do something and with my other hand I signaled to the policeman below for help. They did nothing just stood around and laughed.”

Also, the tree was only 40 steps away from the stage where Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal along with his party leaders was seated. AAP leader Sanjay Singh too spoke from the stage asking the police to stop Gajendra.

Kejriwal announced from the stage, after Gajendra was rushed to RML hospital, that “I feel sad that before our eyes he climbed the tree. I kept telling the police to save him. The police are not in our control, but at least they are under god’s control.”

However, after the death of the farmer, a magisterial inquiry has been ordered. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has also solicited the Delhi police to give a report on the series of events and police preparedness at AAP’s rally.

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.
