New Delhi, Dec 24, 2016: Four years back on 26 November, Aam Aadmi Party was formed to bring about a change in the system, promising people that they would be a common man’s party unlike other parties in the country.

The origin of the Aam Aadmi Party was in the India Against Corruption movement that was organised by Anna Hazare. Arvind Kejriwal and other social activists joined Team Anna, the anti-corruption movement for a Jan Lokpal Bill that gained huge momentum in the country during 2011 and 2012.

Today, after four years Anna Hazare questions the Delhi CM as to how the AAP leader forgot the principles based on which the party was formed. The party promised that it will run only on people’s donation and not from any individual or organisation having vested interest. The party also promised that they would put up the list of their donors on their website.

Aam Aadmi Party has taken down the list of donations from its website since June 2016 which coincided with the party receiving 3 notices from Income Tax Department asking for an explanation of certain discrepancies. The notice states, “The donation entries in the AAP website don’t match the Election Commission records, please furnish documentary evidence to explain the issue.”


No List No Donation Campaign against AAP

Since six months, the page of the donor’s list on their website is “under construction” while the party is blaming other parties for not being financially transparent. Hazare supporting Dr Munish Raizada’s Chanda Bandh Satyagraha says, “ If one wishes to bring a positive change to his country, then there is a need of strong leadership.” He further adds, Kejriwal has promised the countrymen and me that he will bring a positive change in the society but if feels sad to see that the promise has not been fulfilled yet.”

Dr Munish Kumar Raizada is a medical doctor and a suspended member of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). He had quit his medical career in USA and devoted time to the party from 2013 to 2015 in India.

Since the party has not come clean on the funding issue, volunteers, members, and supporters have no option but to launch a Satyagraha by taking a pledge not to donate any further, says Dr Raizada.

Today, Dr Raizada along with other volunteers and participants of Satyagraha, seeking inspiration from Gandhi Ji will be gathering at Raj Ghat at 10 am and will proceed to New Delhi Assembly area.

Surgeons attached a pig kidney to a pair of large blood vessels outside the body of a deceased recipient so they could observe it for two days, and the kidney did what it was supposed to do.

Scientists temporarily attached a pig's kidney to a human body and watched it begin to work, a small step in the decades-long quest to one day use animal organs for lifesaving transplants.

Pigs have been the most recent research focus to address the organ shortage, but among the hurdles: A sugar in pig cells, foreign to the human body, causes immediate organ rejection. The kidney for this experiment came from a gene-edited animal, engineered to eliminate that sugar and avoid an immune system attack.

Killer Smog in Delhi.

Developed by the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune, a Decision Support System (DSS) that extends the ability of the existing air quality early warning system (AQEWS) to have decision-making capability for air quality management in Delhi-NCR was launched on Tuesday.

The website for the DSS (https://ews.tropmet.res.in/dss/) is designed to help the Commission for Air Quality Management for NCR and Adjoining Areas (CAQM) by delivering quantitative information about the contribution of emissions from Delhi and its 19 surrounding districts; the contribution of emissions from eight different sectors in Delhi; and the contribution from biomass-burning activities in the neighbouring states.

These information would assist in managing the air quality in a timely manner, a release from the Ministry of Earth Sciences said.

The need was stated by the CAQM, which was formed by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, during a meeting held in January 2021.

Recently, the Commission reviewed the progress made by IITM and had in principle approved the current version of DSS for air quality management in the Delhi-NCR. The IITM has also developed a new website for DSS with the entire system made operational, the release said.

Union Minister of State for Earth Sciences, Jitendra Singh, while launching the website for AQEWS on the occasion of 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' week organised by the Ministry of Earth Sciences, said, "DSS is a significant contribution to 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' on behalf of MoES and IITM and suggestions are invited on this issue."

The website also has a feature whereby the users can create their own emission reduction scenarios (from 20 different districts, including Delhi) so as to examine the possible projected improvement in air quality in Delhi for the next five days.

"This information would explicitly highlight the most important emission sources responsible for the degradation of air quality in Delhi and suggest possible solutions to ameliorate the same. With a plethora of quantitative data, the AQEWS integrated with DSS could become a user-friendly tool for air-quality management in and around Delhi," the release said. (IANS/JB)
