Punjab, Jan 22, 2017: After the successful launch of the Chanda Bandh Satyagraha signature drive in New Delhi with more than 20,000 people having signed the pledge not to donate to  Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the campaign is currently taking place in Punjab from Jan 11, 2017.

The aim of the campaign is to create awareness among people in Punjab against AAP’s corrupt funding practices before the upcoming elections on February 4. It is now more of a fact that the party which cannot keep its promise to the common people to make the donation list public, will also take their share from Government funds and misuse them, if they are elected.

In response to the popularity of the Campaign, rogues of AAP MLA candidate from Khadoor sahib wanted police to file a case against the campaign volunteers.

The Chanda Bandh Satyagraha has gone in villages of Khadoor Sahib Assembly in Punjab to make people aware of corrupt practices in AAP. People have come forward to spread this message to voters as well just before the elections. The campaign has also reached in Doaba and Majha areas of Punjab

There is a Youtube channel of No List No Donation where people have come forward to support the Chanda Bandh Satyagraha and have expressed their disappointment with AAP. 

A press conference took place in Jalandhar (Punjab) on Jan 10 and the signature drive has so far taken place in the state, in Hoshiarpur, Amritsar and Jalandhar in Punjab, where more than 2500 people have signed the banner. Volunteers have also gone to Golden Temple and distributed pamphlets in the area to make people aware of the AAP’s corrupt practices.

Earlier, Anna Hazare too had questioned Arvind Kejriwal in his letter regarding the unfulfilled promises to him and the people. The campaign -blessed by Anna Hazare- is aimed at compelling the Aam Aadmi Party to do course correction since the party has refused to make details of its political donations public.

AAP volunteers in Punjab too have come forward to support the Chanda Bandh Satyagraha campaign; the disappointment and betrayal by their own party have left them helpless.

Launched by its own volunteers, the Satyagraha campaign has taken on the opaque funding practices of AAP. It may be known that AAP preaches 100 % financial transparency in its donations, yet has discontinued showing names of donors from the website since June 2016.

The satyagrahis of Chanda Bandh Satyagraha stand at public places with banners and placards which essentially convey the message: “Take a Pledge not to donate to Aam Aadmi Party until it makes it Political Fundings Public.”

An auto driver in Hoshiyarpur, Punjab says, ” I will not donate even 1 rupee to AAP, it has failed to fulfil its promises to common man.” With the formation of AAP, there seemed a national movement against corrupt practices but with time the party is too ruled by corruption, as a result, people are finding it cynical when a party talks about “bringing change” or “revolution”.

The No List: No Donation Campaign against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) launched in Rajghat, New Delhi on December 24, which was followed by the signature drive at Rajeev Chowk Metro Station, Gate no. 7 in New Delhi. More than 20,000 people came forward to support the campaign by signing the pledge.

Dr Munish Kumar Raizada has also submitted the petition to Election Commission of India (ECI) regarding the misleading financial behavior of AAP.

AAP has also been issued notice by income tax department regarding opaque funding practices, but they have not taken any step regarding the transparency in political donations.

Raizada has demanded 4 specific conditions to be met: Put all donations in public domain, donations should be searchable by name (and not only via receipt number), Missing Balance Sheets after 2014 to be made public and inquiry to be ordered in the dubious donations of Rupees 2 Cr that the party received in 2014. Kejriwal had promised
an inquiry into this if came into power.

The Chanda Bandh Satyagraha initiative has been taken up by Chicago-based Munish Kumar Raizada, a medical doctor and a suspended member of AAP.
