New Delhi: Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay blamed Chief Minister and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal for staying away from the city while Delhities suffered due to the civic agitation.

“Yesterday, people saw another theatrical show with Delhi ministers posing for photographs while lifting of garbage. But they can no more fool the citizens of Delhi,” he said.

Ministers and agencies of the Delhi government and AAP leaders have started lifting garbage which has been lying unattended on the roads and community bins ever since the strike of civic workers started.

The BJP workers also protested against the Kejriwal government’s reluctance to release municipal funds allegedly to deteriorate the image of the BJP-run corporations.

Upadhyay said the protest marches were taken out and effigies of Kejriwal were burnt by BJP workers in all 14 districts.

The party alleged a scam in garbage lifting and dumping claims of the AAP government.

The Delhi BJP chief said only 19 trucks of PWD and DJB have reached the landfill site and captured in CCTV at landfill sites over the last two days while the AAP government is claiming that 91 truckloads of garbage was removed from roads and community bins.

The Delhi BJP chief surprisingly said that at a time when Delhi is facing a crisis, the Chief Minister has gone to Bangalore for an undergoing treatment.

“We are watching videos of his speeches in various functions in place of his medical treatment,” he said.

Upadhyay said there is Directorate of Local Bodies appointed by Kejriwal government to look after the work of the corporations and by alleging wrongdoings in municipal accounts the government is accusing its own officials.

“We challenge the government that if there is any irregularity in the accounts of corporations then it may lodge police FIR against the mayors and the corporations,” Upadhyay said.

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.
