Punishment without Trial- story of strange ways of Aam Aadmi Party

Ok, so the only state where Aam Aadmi Party has some buzz outside Delhi, the state convener of that state (Read Punjab) has been sacked from his job.

His crime: In an internal sting carried out by his own party’s volunteer/member (no one really knows details), he has been implicated of taking the bribe. In other words, he was allegedly accepting money for awarding a ticket for upcoming assembly elections (cash for ticket).

After seeing this sting video, Kejriwal got very upset. He refused to even meet the state convener. Kejriwal reportedly said to Chotepur: Go and record your defence to the state committee.

The party has sacked Chotepur even before allowing him a proper hearing. This is called Punishment Without Trial.

So, we see a few elements that are troubling:

  1. The so-called sting operation: It was not carried out by a media house or opposition or even by some remote unknown person. It was carried out internally. So, naturally, the video can not come in the public domain unless AAP releases it.

But, the party has shown no eagerness to release it, nor did it hear the ‘accused’ , BUT fired him!

Daytime robbery!

Chotepur says, he has been framed within the party.

2. Chotepur has been the party convener for 2 1/2 years, contested Lok Sabha elections from Gurdaspur and gave time and efforts to build the party in Punjab. Now, when he started showing discomfort about the way candidates are being chosen, it seems the party decided to frame him rather than simply asking him to step down. This serves the mission of Team Kejriwal:

  • AAP looks great and Sucha Singh looks in poor light.

But unlikely. The way Chotepur case has been done does not inspire confidence! Why was the matter not referred to internal Lokpal?

The party formed to start an era of transparent politics and end high command culture is now showing all the traits and vices of a typical Indian political party.

A senior from my alma mater Dr. Verma from Delhi commented: जिस पार्टी में लुच्चा सिंह और टुच्चा सिंह हो, वहां बेचारे सुच्चा सिंह को लात पड़ेगी ही.

Kejriwal has emerged as an ego-maniac person with narcissistic traits. He is rapidly transforming Aam Admi Party into a club of sycophants. In Punjab, AAP started more than a year ago with feverish pitch, but its graph is going down day by day due to self-goals:

  • The para shooters from Delhi. No proper local Punjab party structure has been created.
  • Gate crashers, para troopers and people of all hues and colors are seeking tickets and are being rewarded, creating unrest in volunteers and party workers who have been working since beginning of the party.
  • Inability and unwillingness to govern in Delhi, Kejriwal is selling fake dreams to the people of Punjab.

For Kejriwal, Punjab is the launching pad for national politics. But, means are as important as the goal, Mahatma Gandhi said.

The party is failing on its Suchita (righteousness) Index. And the decay has set in sooner than it would probably have.

Here is my video in Hindi on the same toipc:

In a joint operation, Border Security Forces (BSF) troopers and the Punjab Police have recovered 22kg of heroin in Punjab’s Ferozepur sector following exchange of fire with Pakistani smugglers near the international border, a BSF officer said on Saturday.

The encounter took place late on Friday following a tip-off that smugglers were trying to send heroin consignment into India.

At least one Pakistani smuggler was injured in the exchange of fire as blood stains were found during search of the area on Saturday, BSF officer D.S. Rajpurohit said.

The BSF recovered a pistol and one Pakistani Sim card.

The BSF also arrested three Indian smugglers who were waiting close to the border fence to collect the heroin consignment.

The smugglers were trying to smuggle the heroin consignment using a plastic pipe across the border fence.

The heroin is worth nearly Rs 110 crore in the international market.

The Ferozepur border is around 275 km from here.

Punjab shares a 553-km-long barbed-wire fenced international border with Pakistan. (IANS)

Delhi government’s liquor license scam exposed

AAP has turned Delhi into liquor den.

Delhi government's liquor license scam exposed

 • Illegal liquor licenses granted in shopping malls
 
• Swaraj India protests against illegal vends at Cross River Mall
 
• Illegal vends have turned the mall into a liquor den
 
• Liquor license scam, a perfect example of unholy collusion between AAP & BJP
 
• Arvind Kejriwal, who came to power on the promise of making Delhi addiction free, has today become the Badal of Delhi and Manish Sisodia another Majithia.
New Delhi, Nov 5: Newly formed political party, the Swaraj India has exposed a major scandal in the distribution of liquor licenses by the Delhi government. Party’s Chief National Spokesperson and Delhi State President, Anupam, said that the Delhi government is illegally distributing L10 category liquor licenses enabling dealers to open vends in shopping malls of the city.
The Delhi government offers licenses in the L-10 category to liquor vends in shopping malls of the city. Definition of shops operating from within a mall is clearly stated in the law and the rule mandates that all shops operating from within a mall should be opening up within the building only and cannot have an entrance towards the exterior side of the mall. But Delhi government and the mall management have created these liquor shops against the approved map of the mall. Every week, the Excise officials of Delhi Government are supposed to inspect liquor vends existing in the city, but not a single objection has been raised against these vends that are blatantly violating rules every single day.
And this has resulted in around a dozen liquor vends springing up in just the ground floor of the Cross River Mall. This has turned the shopping mall into a den of liquor vends leaving people living in nearby residential areas helpless. Neither the Delhi government nor the MCD and nor the Delhi police are even taking note of this broad daylight scam. “Is this not a direct sign that all the levels of the government and administration are complicit in letting this illegal trade grow?” Anupam asked.
Everyone in Delhi is well aware of how the employees of MCD don’t lose a moment to demand their share when any construction work begins anywhere. But when illegal constructions are done at such a large scale in a big mall, the MCD doesn’t even blink an eye.
Cross River mall is located in an area from where the Councillor, the MLA as well as the MP are from the BJP. The illegal license is being granted by AAP led Delhi government. It is surprising to see such a harmonious blend between the Aam Aadmi Party and BJP. Promoting liquor trade in Delhi seems to be such a profitable business for both the BJP as well as the AAP that it has brought together the two parties that are otherwise always at loggerheads. Are the black transactions involved in such liquor business the real reason why not a single question has yet been raised by anyone or any party?
Earlier in the last, the Delhi government has eased rules for granting the license to new liquor vends by reducing the minimum carpet area required from 1000 to 500 square feet. And now, in clear dereliction of rules, even vends are being run in the shopping malls.
 On Sunday, Swaraj India’s Mahila Swaraj Morcha protested against the numerous liquor vends in Cross River Mall of Delhi and demanded that the liquor shops be closed down. And in this mall in Shahdara, around a dozen liquor shops have been opened up by granting illegal licenses of the L10 category. And outside this mall, that has been turned into a den of liquor vends, a crowd of drunkards creating an atmosphere of hooliganism has become a daily affair. There has been a continuous increase in crime in the drunken state, where eve-teasing & snatching have become a regular affair.
Sarvesh Verma, President of the party’s Mahila Morcha, said that Arvind Kejriwal who rode to power on the promise of making Delhi an addiction-free city has today become the Badal of Delhi with Sisodia as another Majithia.
Anupam said that though the Delhi government’s anti-women policies will result in the promotion of alcohol addiction but Swaraj India will not let these nefarious plans succeed. The party has earlier as well launched mass agitations against the granting of liquor licenses in residential areas of Delhi, because of which the Delhi government was compelled to announce a ban on the distribution of new licenses. If the government does not immediately order an investigation into the illegal L10 vends and stop this unholy collusion, the Mahila Swaraj Morcha of Swaraj India will take this agitation ahead for the betterment of Delhi.

  • Pakistani officials have said that stubble burning by Indian farmers has caused a thick blanket of smog in Punjab province which led to smog in Pakistan as well.

The officials with Environment Protection Department of Punjab province told Xinhua news agency on Saturday night that the smog is causing various diseases and the provincial government is taking measures to control the situation.

The department’s minister Zakia Shah Nawaz Khan said that the smog engulfed the province for the last two weeks, and is feared to continue for the coming week.

She added that the smoke from the Indian farms moved at a velocity of 7 to 8 km per hour towards Punjab province.

Local experts said that the total Air Quality Index in the provincial capital of Lahore is 357 whereas the maximum limit should be around 100, adding that if the situation was not controlled, the level is feared to exceed 500 soon.

Syed Mubashir Hussain, an official of the environment department said that the provincial government has banned stubble burning across the province and violators were being arrested.

A total of 197 First Information Reports have been filed against violators and 65 people have been arrested due to stubble burning and solid waste burning.

Some 175 pollution-causing units have been stopped. About 15,718 smoke emitting vehicles have been confiscated, and a total of 43 lakh Pakistani rupees (about $43,000) fine has been imposed, Hussain told Xinhua.

Apart from this, brick kilns using substandard fuel and running their units without emission control devices like wet scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators and fly ash arrestors have also been closed, he added.

Smog in Pakistan has not only affected the health of people but also caused road accidents. According to local media reports, at least 18 people have been killed and 45 others injured in separate fog-related accidents across the province.

Air traffic was also affected due to smog-caused low visibility. Six domestic flights from various airports have been suspended due to smog in Pakistan, spokesperson of Pakistan International Airlines said in a statement.

The Met office said that smog will disappear after rains or heavy winds, but there was no possibility of any of it in the next 48 hours.( IANS)
