New Delhi, March 7, 2017: “No List No Donation” campaign also known as Chanda Bandh Satyagraha’s team performed a ‘Havan’ (a ritual wherein offerings are made into sacred fire}at the premises of the Hanuman Mandir in Connaught Place, Delhi on Tuesday, March 7, 2017.

The purpose of the Havan was to purify AAP from the corrupt leadership and bring some sense of morality within the ‘ChandaChors’ (AAP leaders who are misappropriating AAP’s funding).They have deviated from the path of truth and righteousness, with which the party had begun.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

The havan was performed according to the rituals of the Arya Samaj.

The campaign, spearheaded by AAP volunteers and members is fighting for the founding principle of financial transparency.

Since June last year, the AAP has stopped revealing details of its donors’ list and income and expenses statement on its website. AAP, which claims to be the mascot of clean politics, has now paved way for corruption within the party through undisclosed, unregulated funding from unknown sources.

Dr. Munish Raizada, former co-convener of the NRI wing of AAP had said, “on 22nd of December 2016, we had gone to meet Anna Hazare in his village and had informed him about the corruption happening in the party. Then we started the Chanda Bandh Satygraha on the 24th of December 2016 from Rajghat. We, the core workers of AAP including myself, Jaianath ji, Madhav ji and a few more had also gone to Kejriwal’s residence to present him with the Bhagwat Gita, which he refused to accept. We wanted to give him the Gita because we wanted him to follow the path of righteousness. We are not against the party, we are against the corrupt leader of the party and the ChandaChor gang within the party. We want Kejriwal to resign.

Mr. Jaianath Misra, an 80-year-old UK resident and one of the original volunteer of the AAP said, “Kejriwal thinks that because he has come to power, it gives him the right to not to listen to the public, and thinks, he can do whatever he wants to do. But I want to remind Kejriwal that the public had voted him, the public will only vote him out. Without the public, a politician is nothing.”

The havan attracted many curious passers-by who shared similar sentiments as that of the Satyagrahis.

Notably, the people present there not only supported Chanda Bandh Satygraha but also expressed their dissatisfaction with Delhi Chif Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his unfulfilled promises and not doing his duty as the CM of Delhi honestly.

One of the passers-by commented, ” When Mohalla clinics are being opened in Delhi, then why does Kejriwal himself goes to Bangalore for medical treatment?” Another commented, “He said he wouldn’t reside in the official bungalow, but he is residing!”

Likewise people expressed their feeling of betrayal by Kejriwal, who promised Delhi ‘Panch Saal Kejriwal’ ( If voyed to power, he will only focus on Delhi for 5 years) but now is running to Punjab, Gujrat and Goa.

Saw AAP MLAs Assaulting Chief Secretary, CM’s Advisor Tells Police

The AAP defended by stating that Jain had initially told police that he did not witness any assault and police has threatened Jain to change his statement

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s adviser V. K. Jain on Thursday told police that he saw AAP MLAs Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal “physically assaulting” Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, according to Jain’s statement recorded by the Delhi Police.

The AAP defended by stating that Jain had initially told police that he did not witness any assault and police has threatened Jain to change his statement.

On Tuesday, the Chief Secretary had alleged that he was beaten up by the two AAP MLAs in the presence of Kejriwal at the Chief Minister’s residence on Monday night, where he had been called for an emergency meeting.

Police later arrested Khan and Jarwal and they were sent to judicial custody till Thursday.

According to the Chief Secretary, the Chief Minister’s adviser had called him over the phone and asked him to come to the Chief Minister’s residence for the meeting and Jain was also present there.

On Thursday, the Delhi Police submitted Jain’s statement at a city court, which said that Jain had gone to the washroom during the meeting and as he came out he saw the two AAP MLAs “physically assaulting” the Chief Secretary.

The statement was recorded under Section 161 of the CrPC, which means that it was recorded in front of the police and not a magistrate.

Sources told IANS that Jain later recorded his statement in front of a magistrate under section 164 of the CrPC.

“The statement under section 164 was later recorded with the magistrate in front a camera, without the presence of police. In that statement also he (Jain) has said that he saw the two MLAs physically assaulting the Chief Secretary,” a police officer privy to the case told IANS.

The officer said that the statement under section 164 has also been submitted to the court.

Jain was first questioned on Wednesday morning and then again on Thursday and his statement was recorded on Thursday.

The change in Jain’s statement that the AAP was referring to was from a “question and answer” with Jain recorded by police after questioning him on Wednesday.

According to a copy of Wednesday’s “question and answer” recorded by police, when asked whether Jain saw the Chief Secretary being manhandled, he replied that he had gone to the washroom in between the meeting and he could not say what happened during that time.

“By putting pressure on him (Jain) throughout the day (Thursday) and by threatening him, police has forced him to change his statement,” AAP MP Sanjay Singh told the media here on Thursday.

“How is it that the same Jain who emphatically said yesterday that he witnessed no assault during the entire time that he was present there has now claimed otherwise?” he asked.

Singh said that AAP MLAs were being arrested over an alleged assault of which there was no proof.

“But on the other hand, despite there being video footage of officials assaulting Delhi Cabinet Minister Imran Hussain, there is no action taken against the guilty by the Delhi Police,” the AAP MP said.

The court on Thursday sent the two AAP MLAs, arrested on charges of assaulting the Chief Secretary, to judicial custody for 14 days.

Orders on the bail pleas of the two AAP MLAs and also on their police custody will be pronounced on Friday.

Meanwhile, scores of Delhi government employees across the city observed a five-minute silence outside their respective offices as a protest against the alleged assault on the Chief Secretary.

The IAS Association said that officers would continue the protest every day, till steps are taken to “ensure safety and dignity” of government staff in the city.

The AAP also hit out at Lt Governor Anil Baijal by stating that he was “working as a BJP agent” and demanded action against those involved in “manhandling and beating up” Hussain and his aide at the Delhi Secretariat on Tuesday. (IANS)
