According to PTI, Hazare also referred to a letter written to him by Munish Raizada, a US-based medical doctor and suspended member of AAP who pointed out that the donors’ records have gone off the party website since June 2016.

Raizada also launched ‘no chanda’ (no donation) satyagraha at Raj Ghat on December 24, 2016.

National treasurer of AAP Raghav Chadha claimed that Hazare was being misled by Congress leaders on the issue and also added that the BJP is using state agencies to threaten its donors.

According to PTI, “On behalf of Kejriwal, he also challenged BJP President Amit Shah and Congress President Sonia Gandhi to come out clean on party donors and have a debate on the issue at Jantar Mantar.”

“You made several promises, which includes putting the donations received by the AAP on the party website. The talks of social change, which we espoused, are fading and politics and money are becoming important. The sense of humility is also fading. Or else, you would not have taken off the names of people from your website who gave donations to the party during trying times,” Hazare said.

Hazare also expressed the displeasure over the functioning of the Aam Aadmi Party. Hazare further added that the funds donated to AAP, is done to bring in change.

“You penned a book on Gram Swaraj. The way you are going…is this the way to Gram Swaraj? This is the question before me. What is the difference between your party and other political outfits?” Hazare said.

“You promised change to me and the people. It pains because the promise has not been fulfilled. You have made several such promises to me and people,” Hazare said.
