New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party government’s decision to hike the salaries of Delhi MLAs and ministers by a whopping 400 per cent has drawn flak from various quarters with some questioning the apparent “hypocrisy” of the fledgling outfit that claims to represent the interest of the common man.

The Member of Legislative Assembly of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Salaries, Allowances, Pensions, etc) (Amendment Bill) tabled in Delhi Assembly on Thursday proposes the hike from the present Rs 88,000 to over Rs 2 lakh per month – a 400 per cent increase.

This includes all claimed allowances. The amendment bill for ministers proposes an increase from Rs 70,000 to Rs 2.75 lakh per month.

‘Delhi MLAs’ began trending on Twitter after people took to social media to express their ‘shock and disappointment’ about the salary hike.

Some even reminded Kejriwal of his 2012 tweet wherein he had slammed political parties for increasing salaries “in just five minutes”.

Here are the top 10 tweets on the salary hike in this regard:

The song “Kitna Chanda Jeb Mei Aaya” is a part of the upcoming documentary web series titled “Transparency: Pardarshita“, directed by Munish Raizada. The web series reflects upon the corruption and false promises of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

The song “Kitna Chanda Jeb Mei Aaya” has been fervently sung by the legendary singer Udit Narayan. It is penned down by the well-known lyricist Annu Rizvi and composed by Pravesh Mallick.

“Kitna Chanda Jeb Mei Aaya” is more than ‘just a song’ as it talks about the political funding and corruption done by the Arvind Kejriwal-led government AAP.

The reason why this song is different from other songs is that this song isn’t merely meant for entertainment. The song has the power to speak for the disappointment, anger and distress of the common man.

People had expected a lot from Aam Aadmi Party but alas, they were deceived and cheated by the party.

All political parties are mostly crowdfunded, but the citizens do not simply donate money for no reason. The citizen lives in the hope of witnessing development.

In the name of “chanda’, meaning donation, the citizens were cleverly looted by the party. AAP had removed its donors’ list from the website in June 2016, and that’s when they moved away from being responsible, accountable and transparent to the citizens.

Ironically, the core principles of the Aam Aadmi Party are: transparency, decentralisation of power, and vigilances. It’s evident how the party cannot keep up with its own principles and that is why it would be useless to expect AAP to fulfill the promises it made to the citizens.

“Kitna Chanda Jeb Mei Aaya” song aims to educate the people to not fall for the meaningless words and promises of the Aam Aadmi Party.
