 Shillong, May 12, 2017: Very few persons are inborn leaders. They are certainly boon to the society. And most of the others who scramble to be public leaders by fair means or foul, end up being just a “liability”. They usually mislead the crowd and finally bring only misfortune to the nation. I don’t think anyone disagrees that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal – a very strange character, obviously of that type.  With the roar of his hollow rhetoric, he showed his different maverick avatars on different occasions. The unsuspecting people, who just got carried away, are now only regretting.

Is it not a big irony that one who determinedly stood as a crusader against the corruption is now neck deep in the corruption?

Is it not a big irony that one who determinedly stood as a crusader against the corruption is now neck deep in the corruption? Even one good at counting may fail to give full records in how many counts the Delhi CM proved himself as a dangerous hypocrite, and diplomatically a failed leader. Now a very annoyed Minister Kapil Mishra, who has been recently sacked by the Chief Minister, is threatening to expose the skeletons in APP’s cupboard. Other opponents of other parties are having the last laugh!

Delhi CM proved himself as a dangerous hypocrite, and diplomatically a failed leader.

By the way, given his series of tantrums and bad mouthing other rivals, particularly against PM Modi, Arvind Kejriwal has now almost dragged himself into the pit of no return. But however, with all his footprints in his short political journey, we have got a very clear message that we should not trust any leaders no matter how “holy” they claim to be.  Yes, we have to take the words of our leaders with a pinch of salt.

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.
