Punjab, March 19, 2017:
The washout of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab Elections 2017, accentuates the focus on pervading corruption within AAP. ‘Chanda Bandh Satyagraha’ or NoListNoDonation
has also been fighting against the restoration of transparency in political funding of AAP since December 24, 2016.
Now, AAP’s defeat too shouts out the agenda of the campaign.
As the lack of transparency gives rise to all the malicious practices that can operate within the administration of the party. Opaque funding has also given the way to the unethical distribution of tickets and biased selection of members into the party.
The honest and deserving volunteers
who had watered and nurtured the party with their hard-work have been ignored. Internal democracy has been replaced with high command culture into the party’s governance.
NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.
Recently, a petition has been signed demanding Arvind Kejriwal to remove Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak from the party, holding them responsible for massive defeat in Punjab.
The petition reads:
“With this petition, we are appealing to Arvind Kejriwal, Please listen to the voice of all the volunteers of Punjab and overseas as well and remove Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak from their positions because volunteers have lost faith in them. “
These two were the incharges of the party in Punjab elections. According to the petition filed, they should have resigned themselves taking the responsibilty of AAP’s defeat on their shoulders.
It should be noted that these two people are very close aides of Arvind Kejriwal.
While signing the PETITION
, Shikhar Singh from San Franciso (U.S.A.) blames AAP for selling their tickets for Lacs of Rupees. The innocent and honest people have been discarded. Tainted, undeserving and corrupted members were given preference
Himanshu and Sangram from India also accuse the party for being indulgent into wrong practices while signing the petition.

Dr. Munish Raizada, Former co-convenor of AAP NRI wing and convener of ‘Chanda Bandh Satyagraha’ raises a valid question. He says, The party is a small club managed essentially by 6-7 individuals. ‘Chanda Chor Gang ka mukhiya’ (ring leader of Chanda Chor Gang) very well knows what all has happened in Punjab and the reasons for their devastating defeat”.
Further, Dr. Munish Raizada adds that if a party cannot keep its funding transparent, how can they talk about removing corruption from the system?
Raizada has been struggling for bringing back the lost morality and transparency in the party through ‘Chanda Bandh Satyagraha’ or NoListNoDonation campaign which aims to seek a pledge from the public not to donate to AAP if it does not display its donor’s list.
The fact that Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak are among the people who are closest to Kejriwal implies that he is not ignorant of the malignant activities that have been taking place behind the name of politics.
Complete disregard of volunteers of AAP and rampant corruption in ticket distribultion has bought the catastrophic loss to the party in the Punjab Elections 2017.
It is also a pointer for volunteers that it is time to nail the root cause for the defeat and raise question to Kejriwal who holds the real accountability to them.
