Islamabad: Pakistan on Friday filed a complaint with the UN over what it called were “ceasefire violations” by India.

The Pakistan Army registered the complaint with the United Nations Military Observers Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) against alleged ceasefire violations by the Indian Army along the Line of Control and the international border, the Dawn reported.

The Pakistan Army’s media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said: “The Pakistan Army highlighted India’s use of heavy mortars and machine guns on civil population, living along the working boundary and Line of Control….”

It said: “UNMOGIP was asked to use its good offices to investigate Indian ceasefire violation.”

An ISPR statement said four people in Pakistan were killed in the firing.

The UN Security Council passed a resolution in 1948 and established the United Nations Commission for India and Pakistan (UNCIP).

After the termination of UNCIP, the Security Council passed another resolution in 1951 and established UNMOGIP to observe and report violations of ceasefire.

India has maintained that the UNMOGIP has outlived its utility.

There have been at least six violations of the 2003 ceasefire along India-Pakistan border in the last four days, with India maintaining Pakistan started the firing.

On Wednesday, a woman was killed and four people – two troopers and two civilians – were injured in indiscriminate shelling by Pakistan Rangers in Akhnoor sector.

Four villagers working in their fields were left injured in R.S. Pura near the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir in Pakistani firing on Thursday.

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.
