Chanda Bandh Satyagraha in Punjab

New Delhi, Jan 28, 2017: Chanda Bandh Satyagraha came into existence simply because AAP funds are now no more clean!

There were many discrepancies found in the donor list of Aam Admi Party (AAP) and income tax returns filed with Election Commission of India (ECI) against AAP itself has officially called them as ‘inadvertent errors’.

Initially, in June 2016, the AAP hid the donor list under the pretext of website maintenance.

As this excuse could not be sustained for months, so the think tank of AAP floated a new excuse called “Harassment of donors” to play their usual victim card.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

Now, AAP social media team members and supporters instead of answering about the hidden donor list attack the answer seeker as a BJP agent, Congress agent or a ticket seeker who couldn’t get ticket in earlier elections or start with whataboutery.

AAP’s donor list is a very important issue as AAP in its donation policy states that it will put donation list on the site and upload detailed expenditure on site. Such a claim is not made by any other political party.

The worst part is that the AAP leadership still claims that they are financially transparent and hence are misleading the common man and their prospective voters.

They are leaving no stone unturned to spread this fake harassment excuse.

Go to NewsGram and check out news related to political current issues.

For example, Ankit Lal (IT head of AAP) on his Twitter timeline floates a notice claiming harassment. (Source : Ankit Lal on Twitter)

This notice itself raises more doubts about AAP’s funding.

  • The supposed donor mentioned is a corporation and not an individual. So as per law, the companies details are sought in the notice.
  • As this notice is from Income tax returns filed by the AAP with Election Commission of India and not from the donation list on the site. So this ‘harassment excuse’ falls flat on its face.
  • As like all other political parties AAP will be filing income tax returns with the EC always, so Income tax department can always ask questions based on it. Hence, the hiding of donor list does not stop their alleged harassment.
  • Income tax department keeps sending notices to many income tax payers in India. So shall all of them cry harassment? A notice is not harassment!
  • The notice could be a photoshopped one as well. It doesn’t mention that it was donated to AAP.
  • As per AAP, its 92 per cent Donations are through online banking. So donors can always be tracked by state authorities.
  • Lastly, as the donation to a political party are exempted from taxation. So a genuine donor will always seek tax exemption and the income tax return will carry the mention. So h8ding donor list does not avoid the so-called harassment!

Times Now has released previous notices to AAP by Income tax department that they didn’t report all the donations received and their list on the site doesn’t match with income tax returns which AAP called an inadvertent error. (EXCL: I-T Department Had Sent Notice To AAP Over ‘Hidden’ Donations)

Hence it is quite clear that there was the difference between donation on site and income tax returns filed by them. That’s why it is removed from the site.

Moreover, why should anyone be afraid of a notice if it is not black money or a shady deal?

There are so many ground volunteers who work for AAP fearlessly, there has been not a single reported case of harassment. In fact, they are more prone to political vendetta.

Donor list missing from AAP’s Website

In India political violence is quite common in states of Kerala, West Bengal, Bihar etc but in the case of AAP, almost negligible cases have been reported.

Look for latest news from India in NewsGram.

 By this ‘harrasement excuse logic’, I think all AAP volunteers should go underground!

A section of volunteers are fighting for the financial transparency and restoration of the balance sheet and donor list on AAP’s website called No List No Donation. ( www.NoListNoDonation.com). This campaign aims at exposing the Chanda Chor gang (A gang of thieves who have eaten away donations) of AAP through the door-to-door signature drive, asking people to stop future donations till this High command coterie restores donor list online.

Even AAP supporters and their leaders openly abuse the Prime Minister Narendra Modi but there has been no harassment. But yes, the AAP Social Media team targetted No list No Donation’s twitter handle and using their political got it suspended in order to muzzle our voice.

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.

Islamabad, October 19: Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been indicted on corruption charges stemming from information taken from the so-called “Panama Papers.”

The country’s anti-corruption court indicted the 67-year-old Sharif during a hearing Thursday in Islamabad. His daughter Maryam and son-in-law Mohammed Safdar were also indicted. Maryam Sharif and Mohammed Safdar appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to the charges.

A lawyer for the elder Sharif, who is in London with his wife as she undergoes cancer treatment, entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. Maryam Sharif angrily dismissed the allegations as “baseless.”

Sharif was disqualified by Pakistan’s Supreme Court and removed from office in July after leaked documents last year from a Panama-based law firm revealed the family held a number of unreported overseas assets.(VOA)

Valletta, October 17, 2017 : A journalist who led the Panama Papers probe into corruption in Malta was killed on Monday in a car bomb near her residence, the media reported.

Daphne Caruana Galizia died on Monday when her car, a Peugeot 108, was destroyed by a powerful explosive device, reports the Guardian.

A blogger whose posts often attracted more readers than the combined circulation of the country’s newspapers, Caruana Galizia was recently described by the American news outlet Politico as a “one-woman WikiLeaks”.

Her latest revelations accused Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and two of his closest aides, connecting offshore companies linked to the three men with the sale of Maltese passports and payments from the government of Azerbaijan.

No group or individual claimed responsibility for the attack, the Guardian reported.

Malta’s President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, called for calm. “In these moments, when the country is shocked by such a vicious attack, I call on everyone to measure their words, to not pass judgement and to show solidarity.”

In a statement, Muscat condemned the “barbaric attack”.

“Everyone knows Caruana Galizia was a harsh critic of mine,” said Muscat, adding “Both politically and personally, but nobody can justify this barbaric act in any way.”

He announced in parliament later on Monday that Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officers were on their way to Malta to assist with the investigation, following his request for help from the US government.

According to local media reports, Caruana Galizia filed a police report 15 days ago to say that she had been receiving death threats.

The journalist posted her final blog on her Running Commentary website at 2.35 p.m. on Monday, and the explosion, which occurred near her home, was reported to police just after 3 p.m.

Over the last two years, her reporting had largely focused on revelations from the Panama Papers, a cache of 11.5 million documents leaked from the internal database of the world’s fourth largest offshore law firm, Mossack Fonseca. (IANS)
