New Delhi: Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Tuesday said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Prime Minister Narendra Modi should work in tandem. “The PM as well as the CM have been elected to their respective houses for the first time. They will have to strike a balance,” Mahajan said at the two-day orientation program for Delhi assembly members.

Kejrwal, whose Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) defeated the Bharatiya Janata Party in the February polls, has accused Modi of interfering in the functioning of the Delhi government. In an oblique reference, she asked the AAP to desist from staging protests. “It’s fine that until now you were protesting. But there is a difference between a speech given at crossroads and things spoken in the assembly,” she said.

    Why the speaker do not state loud and clear that this is the first time since 1947 a party has emerged in the political scene of India that has taken a bold stand against corruption and resisting all opposition against that stand. First time a party has declared that “It is the people who develop a country not Government”. First time a party has taken a stand in favor of women’s dignity and security. First time a party has sincerely tried and actually reduced the ever increasing price of electricity and water. First time a party has introduced the system of students loan. First time the elected members of a party have tried to emphasize the significance of remembering freedom fighters as a part of culture. Let the speaker declare that this is the only party that seems to understand that Indians are one of the most brilliant nations on earth. It does not befit them to remain subservient and an appendage of the West. The ideology Indians preach, language they speak, religion they pursue, technology they innovate; whole world will pay attention to that because Indians are one sixth of the world. It looks as if- it is a party that seems to have emerged in the India’s political scene to echo the precepts of Swami Vivekananda who said- “You are a lion cub why are you wrapping yourself in sheep skin ? Know thyself”. Does the speaker have the courage and the wisdom to declare this simple truth? I guess not- then she would not be allowed to sit in that chair.

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.
