New Delhi: A court on Sunday sent former Delhi law minister Jitender Singh Tomar, who was accused in a fake degree case, to one-day judicial custody.

Metropolitan Magistrate Ankit Singla remanded Tomar to judicial custody for a day after he was presented before the court as his two-day police remand expired on Sunday.

A magisterial court while remanding him in two days’ police custody on Friday had directed Delhi Police not to seek further his custody.

Tomar was in police custody for 10 days after being arrested on June 9. The police have slapped a case of cheating, forgery and conspiracy against him.

Meanwhile, the police moved an application seeking Tomar’s specimen signature to verify it with other records required in investigation.

However, magistrate Singla recused himself from issuing any direction, citing some personal issues and asked both the parties to appear before the chief metropolitan magistrate on Monday for further hearing.

Police have alleged that Tomar enrolled himself as an advocate on the basis of a fake law degree. He is also accused of possessing forged graduation degree purportedly obtained from four different colleges.

A complaint was registered against the ex-law minister on behalf of Puneet Mittal, the Delhi Bar Council secretary, regarding Tomar’s fake degree.

Police had taken him to Bundelkhand University, Awadh University in Faizabad, Uttar Pradesh, and Tilka Manjhi University in Bhagalpur, Bihar for verification of his degrees.

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.
