Kejriwal is the century’s biggest deceiver of trust: Sunil Lal

“Arvind Is The Century’s Biggest Deceiver Of Trust”, Says Sunil Lal, a former AAP member and the designer of the revoked AAP Logotype, in an OPEN LETTER to Arvind, when he is chest thumping aloud of his achievement on completion of one year of rule in Delhi.

Lal says that Kejriwal deceived the nation by using patriotism of lakhs of Anna Andolan volunteers (who had selflessly rallied behind him since 2011 to demand Janlokpal bill) into creating a political outfit that was flood opened to swindlers and corrupt elements invited from other parties. He even conspired and threw some senior founder members out of the party who had objected to his autocratic working style to garner the power by hook or by crook.

Lal has demanded to clear the air whether Kejriwal was working as the B team of BJP during Anna Andolan in 2012 when he had performed his last indefinite fast (of his career) against the alleged 15 Corrupt Ministers to give benefit to the BJP win election (including then Finance Minister Pranav Mukherjee elected to be the President of India on 25th July 2012 the day you sat on the fast).

In the same breath, Lal alleges that Kejriwal is now working as B team of Congress as exemplified by his incessant attack on BJP and giving a clean chit to Sheila Dixit, the former Chief Minister against whom he had filed 370 paged complaints with the police in 2012 with Baba Ramdev.

Launching a frontal attack on Arvind Kejriwal, Sunil Lal says that Aam Aadmi Party ( AAP) party is just another conglomerate of the  corrupt using all the tricks in his sleeves to raise black money from unknown sources although they tend to project themselves as the Champion of Alternative Politics. Lal notes that AAP’s plank of using clean money is deflated now.

Citing grave anomalies of AAP’s claim of clean money, he raised the serious questions, on the basis of data available on the website of AAP and Election Commission of India, which his three-member team of volunteers consisting of  Mr Neil Terrance Haslam, Harsh and Rajpreet has dug out. Lal alleges that:

  1. Donations not reported to Election Commission. Total 932. Total Amount 14 crore 60 lakh.
  2. Total 70 donations above 10 Lakh. These were to be scrutinized and accepted by PAC. Out of these 70 donations, 26 (37%) donations amounting to 6 crores plus were not reported to Election Commission. PAC is directly responsible for these 26 donations.
  3. Bennami entries – total number 129. total amounts rupees 1 crore 9 lakh. These entries lack name, address, cheque number and PAN.
  4. Four fake pan cards in the year 2013-14, 40 fake pan cards in 2014-15. The cited number during the year 2014-15 is on a random check. There could be more.

In his letter Lal alleges that how come the VAT department under his very nose is deep neck in corruption working in the same style where the businessmen are regularly being harassed to extract the bribe. Why being a champion of Anti-corruption Kejriwal has not taken any proactive steps to reform the system of VAT Department’s working?

Citing Kejriwal as a salaried man, Lal claims that the stature of selfless volunteers across India who work for the society spending their own time and money should not be seen less than him in any manner.

NewsGram tried to contact KK Sevada, National Treasurer of Aam Aadmi Party to talk about the allegations made by Sunil Lal but he could not be reached.

Impeachment Process Divides Global Opinion, but Shows Democracy in Action

Trump Impeachment Drama Gets Attention, Mixed Reviews Around World

Impeachment Process of Donald Trump

As the impeachment process against U.S. President Donald Trump unfolds, it’s not only Americans who are following every twist and turn. Millions of people around the world have been following the testimonies on Capitol Hill and are fascinated by the political warfare in Washington. Many observers say it shows American democracy in action.

Trump is accused of threatening to withhold $392 million in military assistance to Ukraine, unless Kyiv launched a public corruption investigation into the family of his political rival, the Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden. Soliciting foreign interference in U.S. democracy is unlawful and Trump strongly denies the allegations.

Across the Atlantic Ocean, Britain is trying to break out of its own political crisis caused by the 2016 vote to leave the European Union. With a general election imminent, many Britons see their own recent political chaos mirrored across the Atlantic, says political scientist Thomas Gift of University College London.

“Both the U.S. and the U.K. [Britain] are rivaling one another for levels of dysfunction in government, or lack of ability to get things done,” Gift said. “Typically, the world, including the U.K., looks to the U.S. as a model of democratic governance and has had, for a long time, institutions of power and leadership that project integrity. And I think watching this, particularly from abroad, I think does to some extent undercut that belief that the U.S. is this kind of moral, ethical and democratic leader.”

Polls suggest less than one in five Britons have a positive opinion of Trump — and that’s echoed in the views of many watching the impeachment process play out.

“If it goes through the House, I really hope that the Senate really stand up and do something about it. He shouldn’t be president and he should be impeached,” London resident Dayo Thomas told VOA.

In Paris, there is mixed interest in Washington’s political battles. Jacques Grau, a physician, believes the impeachment process is a good idea. “It allows democracy to function,” he told VOA.

Student Selene Ay says many of her contemporaries are not that interested.

“I know a lot of people followed after [Trump] was elected. But I think it kind of died down, I guess. People don’t care that much.”

There appears to be greater interest in Russia — and seemingly, greater support for Trump. Moscow resident Mikhail says the Americans elected Trump, “but now they want to take the decision back. That is wrong,” he said.

Fellow Moscow resident Dmitri says it is a political struggle. “[Joe] Biden’s team is just looking for compromising information to make Trump step down.”

They may be strategic rivals, but Russia doesn’t necessarily welcome America’s political problems, according to Andrey Kortunov, director of the Russian Council on International Affairs.

“The only U.S. president who can fix problems with Moscow is a strong U.S. president,” Kortunov told VOA. “So if Trump is under impeachment it definitely weakens his position and it becomes more difficult for him to manage this very complex and very delicate relationship. We need to have predictable partners. Weakness makes leaders unpredictable.”

With 1.3 billion people, India is often called the world’s biggest democracy. In Delhi, there is admiration for principle of impeachment. “It means that it is a very fair, a proper democracy at work,” according to Dipika Nanjappa, who works at a local voluntary organization. Retired government official Ashish Banerjee agrees: “We need to be more accountable. Our leaders need to be more accountable,” he told VOA.

Cairo resident Sameh Ghoneim sees echoes of Egypt’s own leadership in the alleged actions of Donald Trump. “He is only interested in personal gain,” said Ghoneim, who works as a mining engineer outside the capital. “He will look for corruption in others when it helps him.”

In South Africa’s Johannesburg, opinion on Trump’s fate is again divided. “I think he’s doing just fine, so I don’t see the reason why he should be removed,” said local chef Khanyisile Shongwe. Cleaner Joseph Maisa is no fan of the U.S. president. “He doesn’t bring nice things in America. That is why he should be removed.”

The impeachment process could go on well into 2020, as the U.S. also gears up for the presidential election following what promises to be a bitterly fought campaign. Each twist and turn will be followed closely across the globe. (VOA)
