No List No Donation Campaign against AAP

December 16, 2016: A former co-convenor of AAP’s NRI Cell, Munish Raizada has launched an online petition ‘No List-No Donation Campaign’ against AAP as it is hiding the details of the donations for the past six months.

The “No List: No Donation” is a Satyagraha (insistence for truth) launched against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for shielding its donations from public view.

AAP claims that it is different from other parties because of its transparency in financial transactions. It claims that the party will function with full transparency in the financial transaction. To run the people’s party every single rupee collected by donations will be publicly declared on the AAP’s website and all the expenditures will also be mentioned on the website.

However, when you’ll open the AAP’s website and try to find out the donor’s list, you’ll see the page says “Under Construction. New Version coming soon.”

And the page is “under construction” for six months, now. The page of donors list is not available from June 2016.

So, the suspended Aam Aadmi Party member, Dr Raizada had set a deadline of December 3, 2016 to unveil the details of the donation by writing an open letter on 26th November. Since the party failed to do, he started an online pledge via Change.org which seeks support from the public and also launched a website www.NoListNoDonation.com to intensify it.

On 24 December 2016 at 10 am in Rajghat, Delhi the cause will be launched where he, along with people supporting the cause will be present and they would be going towards New Delhi Vidhan Sabha.

You can share your opinion in Quora, here is the link Why is Aam Aadmi Party’s donation list missing from the website?

As Dr Raizada said on the social media, “ From there we shall proceed to New Delhi Assembly Area where 4 years back we had promised a corruption-free India to the public of India. BUT now, we shall seek Apology from Delhi’s public for hiding their donations that they gave us (to our party) in the promise of honest and transparent funding. And also, we shall start a signature campaign for #चन्दाबन्दसत्याग्रह (ie, Pledge not to donate to AAP unless it makes it donations public).”

Pop singer and songwriter Taylor Swift on Monday released a star-studded music video that scolded social media trolls and urged fans to sign a petition demanding U.S. legal protections for gays, lesbians and transgender people.

The video for Swift’s new single “You Need to Calm Down” featured a surprise cameo by former rival Katy Perry plus a host of other celebrities. Perry’s appearance signaled an end to a spat between the two musicians which began in 2013 over backup singers in their shows.

Set in a pastel-colored trailer park, the video featured Swift, 29, relaxing in a pool while she called out her critics and those who attack LGBTQ people. “Shade never made anybody less gay,” she sang.

Celebrities in the video who identify as LGBTQ include Ellen DeGeneres, Billy Porter, RuPaul, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Adam Lambert, Hannah Hart and Tan France.

Swift, all smiles and outfitted as French fries, hugged Perry, 34, dressed as a hamburger, a costume she wore to last month’s Met Gala fundraiser at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Social media posts in 2018 suggested an end to their spat, which had played out in their songs. On Tuesday, Perry posted a photo on her Instagram account, with Swift being tagged, showing a plate of cookies with the words “Peace at last” appearing to be written in icing.

At the end of the new video, two sentences on screen urged fans to sign a petition urging the U.S Senate to pass legislation that would protect LGBTQ people from discrimination.

The measure has already cleared the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally,” it said.

The petition had collected more than 222,000 signatures within a few hours.

Swift, who has more than 118 million Instagram followers, has been stepped into politics in 2018 by supporting two Democrats running in U.S. congressional elections in Tennessee.

Voter registrations spiked in the state, but Swift’s preferred candidate for Senate lost the election. (VOA)
