AAP Bachao Aandolan launched by its old volunteers


March 27, 2017

New Delhi, March 26, 2017

Chanda Bandh Satyagraha successfully organized a general meeting of Aam Aadmi Party volunteers in the ND Tiwari Memorial Hall, DDU Marg, New Delhi.This meeting was held as an initiative ‘AAP Bachao Aandolan’ whose purpose is to restore Aam Aadmi Party’s fundamentals. Old and steadfast party workers and volunteers openly stated in the meeting that the corrupt party leadership has systematically diluted its cardinal principles of clean money, Swaraj (inner party democracy) and internal vigilance (internal Lokpal).

“Lack of transparency has led to these malicious practices.”

Hundreds of the volunteers including the discontented Aam Aadmi Party workers showed up and discussed how the party has systematically deviated from its principles, say Dr. Munish Raizada, convener of Chanda Bandh Satyagraha and Deepak Panchal, an organizer in an after-meet Press Conference.

After concluding the media, all the invited volunteers and AAP workers unanimously went to protest silently in front of Aam Aadmi Party Headquarter. There, they raised slogans against the illicit methods of the party.

Recent dismal Punjab and Goa election results for AAP have hastened the disdain among old volunteers who had been waiting in exasperation the systematic dilution of core principles of the party.

In view of the upcoming MCD election, the AAP Bachao Aandolan has demanded the following from the leadership of the party:

  1.  Restore Financial Transparency: Chanda Bandh Satyagraha’s convener Dr. Munish Raizada has been demanding the party to make donors’ list online.  It may be noted that the party has concealed its donors’ list since June 2016.
  2.  Restore Swaraj (inner part democracy) within the party:

Ticket selling: For the upcoming ‘Municipal Corporation Elections’ in Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party has allocated tickets to the new faces or to the members from other parties. This has created discontentment among the core volunteers and ardent supporters of the party. The party has given tickets to paratroopers and newcomers in the name of ‘winnability’, but it smacks of a deeper malaise of ticket selling and exchange of money.

Also, volunteers have cast aspersions on the nomination process of selection of candidates, saying that it is fake and does not conform to the principle of Swaraj that AAP so dearly vouches for. They are asking if it were not for ticket selling and nepotism, how come the party has ignored the committed party workers who have been toiling hard since last 4 years. Has the party failed to groom leaders even at the ward level (for MCD elections), asks Raizada

3. Restore Internal Lokpal:

The party’s internal Lokpal system is practically collapsed, thus there is no authentic mechanism for the volunteers to get the complaints heard.
