kejriwal-main5

Former Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday received flak for allegedly failing to implement RTI Act within Aam Aadmi Party.
Rakesh Agarwal, who claimed to have played a vital role in making auto drivers join AAP during elections, today said that despite being called the “so-called hero” of the RTI movement, Kejriwal’s party was running away from answering questions under the Right to Information Act.
“I have filed 13 RTI applications since October 30, 2013 with the AAP but none of the applications have been acknowledged. Appeals were filed against two of the applications but even those have gone without a reply,” Agarwal, secretary of Nyayabhoomi, told reporters here.
He told reporters said that last year, party leaders Prashant Bhushan and Kejriwal advocated the implementation of RTI act within political parties, but AAP was now refusing to supply information under the RTI Act.
“Why is Mr. Kejriwal not bringing out the details of every rupee spent on his rally despite the fact that he claimed that AAP was getting donations from public?” he asked.
He said that his 13 RTI applications pertained to funds received by way of donations and membership, details of expenses, statements of the party’s bank accounts, internal elections, candidates selections process and the proof of corruption against politicians whom Kejriwal has called corrupt in the recent weeks.
“While Arvind Kejriwal was in the chair, the chief minister’s performance on RTI was at its worst ever. I had asked for reasons for the transfers of the two transport commissioners. The CM’s office replied that the citizens have no right to ask why the transfer happen,” he said.
Agarwal said that the content of Jan Lokpal Bill has not been made public to this day.

Sucha Singh Chhotepur | Aam Aadmi Party Not To Contest Khadoor Sahib Bypoll In Punjab

NEW DELHI:  The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will not contest the Khadoor Sahib bypoll in Punjab even as its former member Bhai Baldeep Singh backed by Swaraj Abhiyan will be in the fray.

The party said it does not want to invest its resources in the bypoll, but will focus on the main battle in 2017.

“We will not be fielding candidates for Khadoor Sahib. What is the point in fielding a candidate when the main elections are few months away? We are focusing on 2017,” AAP’s Punjab co-convenor Durgesh Pathak said.Incidentally, after its resounding success in Lok Sabha polls in Punjab, which gave four lawmakers to the party, the AAP had contested bypolls for Talwandi Sabo and Patiala Assembly seats, but the party suffered a drubbing.AAP had, however, won from Patiala Lok Sabha seat just few months back then.”We don’t want to enter the fray right now. When we know that we have a good chance, we don’t want to take any chances for a bypoll, and instead (want to) focus on the bigger target,” said a party leader.

AAP’s former member Bhai Baldeep Singh has got the support of Swaraj Abhiyan leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, who are former members of the party.Making it a prestige battle, the Shiromani Akali Dal is also going out all stops to ensure victory and has fielded Ravinder Singh Brahmpura for the bypoll.

 Onion Scam

The National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Limited (Nafed) questions the AAP government where has profit margin on 25 lakh kg onion gone, hints at bungling.It’s really a tear-jerking tale. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government’s claim that it purchases onions at Rs 40 a kg and sells these to you at Rs 30 a kg has turned out to be a farce. The AAP government, which came to power on the promise of eradicating corruption has procured onions at a much cheaper price of Rs 18 a kg and sold these to Delhiites at Rs 30 a kg, according to RTI replies.

The move, the RTI replies state, is in stark contrast to the Cabinet decision that the government will sell onions at a no-profit-no-loss basis in the Capital. The National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Limited (Nafed) has alleged that there is a huge difference between the procurement cost and the price at which the AAP government sold onions to Delhiites.

Sugar Scam

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi has been hit by a ‘sugar scam’ after an RTI reply revealed that the city government bought sugar for public distribution from two private companies at ‘exorbitant’ rates.

The Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) chief, MK Meena, taking cognisance of the RTI and a complaint from RTI activist Vivek Garg, on Wednesday ordered a probe into the alleged anomalies in sugar procurement by Delhi government.

The Arvind Kejriwal government has however denied the charges terming them baseless and defamatory. According to the information procured by Garg, Delhi State Civil Supplies Corporation Limited (DSCSC) procured 101000 quintals of sugar worth Rs.31.62 crore for public distribution at the rate of Rs.33.90-30.87 per kg while the wholesale rates offered by public sugar cooperatives are between Rs.19-20 per kg.

According to the RTI reply,the Delhi government has procured around 15000 quintals from ‘Sainik Food Private Limited’ at Rs.33.90 per kg and 86000 quintals at Rs.30.87 per kg from ‘Doctor Frozen Food India Ltd’ since February.

Based on the information, Garg registered a complaint against Arvind Kejriwal government with the Meena-led ACB, which  ordered the probe.

“The probe is being supervised by Meena himself. A notice has been issued demanding the concerned authority from Delhi government to join the probe,” said a source.

The Delhi government in a rejoinder issued later in the day, however, denied the allegations as ‘baseless and defamatory’stating that the name of DSCSC is being ‘unnecessarily’ dragged into the controversy with an ‘ulterior’ motive.

DDCA Scam

New Delhi: Patiala House Court will on Tuesday hear the criminal defamation case filed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and other Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders.

he case comes in the wake of the AAP leaders charging the Delhi DistrictCricket Association (DDCA) with widespread financial irregularity under the tenure of Jaitley as president.

The case has been filed against five members of AAP namely, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh, Kumar Vishwas, Raghav Chadha and Deepak Bajpai apart from Kejriwal.

Speaking in Parliament earlier, Jaitley had said that the allegations against him in connection with the DDCA scam were baseless and devoid of truth.

“All these allegations are baseless and devoid of truth. For a total sum Rs. 114 crore, we made a stadium with a capacity of taking 42,000 people. Contrary to that, the Congress built the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium spending Rs. 900 crores. No one raised doubts on that expenditure, “he had said in the Lok Sabha.

On December 21 Jaitley had filed a criminal defamation complaint against Kejriwal and five other leaders of AAP for allegedly defaming him in the DDCA controversy before a Delhi court which took cognizance on his plea.

Sucha Singh Chhotepur| Aam Aadmi Party Scam

Bhavna Arora, a 27-year-old member of the ‘Aam Aadmi Sena’, threw ink at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday during a ceremony held at Chhatrasal Stadium, to celebrate the  government’s ‘odd even success’.Kejriwal was addressing Delhi citizens from the dais when Bhavna emerged from the crowd shouting slogans against him, and threw ink towards the podium. According to reports, she also threw a CD and some papers at the Delhi CM, demanding that he probe what she termed as a ‘CNG scam’. The woman claimed that she had proof of AAP and Kejriwal’s involvement in the scam and she had tried to meet them in person, but was not allowed to.Immediately after the incident took place, AAP members accused Delhi Police and the BJP of conspiring against the party. This led to counter-accusations among members of both the parties.

 

Arora, who now claims to be in-charge of the Punjab unit of AAS, launched a protest against Kejriwal in April 2015 in New Delhi after a farmer named Gajendra Singh committed suicide during one of Kejriwal’s rallies.She was interviewed by a local news channel while she continued smearing ink on posters of the Delhi Chief Minister. Bhavna claimed to be the head of the AAS Mahila Morcha (Delhi) at that time and accused AAP members of instigating Gajendra Singh.
