Exclusive: Anna Hazare comes out in open support about Chanda Bandh Satyagraha against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)

AAP 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

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.
