More Trouble For AAP, 27 MLAs Lands In Office For Profit After President Orders EC To Probe

Even as the uncertainty prevails on 21 MLA’s of Aam Aadmi Party, still awaiting for their fate to be decided in an ongoing  ‘Office of Profit’ controversy, another set of 27 party MLAs are involved in another Office of Profit row.

A Delhi-based law student, Vibhor Anand, had filed this complaint, alleging that these 27 MLAs hold posts of Chairpersons of Rogi Kalyan Samitis in different government hospitals in Delhi without any legal sanctity. Further demanding the termination of the said MLA’s from their positions. Anand had lodged this complaint directly with the EC in June, following which the Commission had said that it should be made to the President who, in turn, will send it to the Commission. EC has now sent the complaint to the President.

“The Delhi government in 2009 through its executive/ standing orders approved constituting Rogi Kalyan Samitis in all the hospitals with governing body under the chairmanship of local MLA in violating the mandate of scheme.

“The order of appointing MLAs either by the present government or by the earlier government, as chairperson of the Rogi Kalyan Samiti is wholly illegal and void, without any legal sanctity,” Anand said.

Following which the president has probed the Election Commision with a fresh petition against 27 MLAs for allegedly holding office of profit, and further will now be examined by poll panel.

Earlier, a similar petition filed in office to profit row in June, had sought cancellation of 27 AAP MLAs membership.

However, this time around too, the list already includes seven legislators against whom the EC had already considered a plea for holding the office of parliamentary secretaries, indicating a threat of disqualification for the rest 17 MLAs.

In the complaint forwarded to President Pranab Mukherjee, following were the MLAs whose names were mentioned: Mohinder Goyal, Surendra Singh, Anil Kumar Bajpai, Mohammed Ishraq Khan, Rakhi Birla, Madan Lal, Sharad Kumar, Hazari Lal Chauhan, Kailash Gehlot, Rajendra pal Gautam, Pankaj Pushkar, Somnath Bharti, Ved Prakash, Nitin Tyagi, Naresh Yadav, Jarnail Singh, Alka Lamba, Ram Niwas Goel, Vishesh Ravi, Rajesh Gupta, SK Bagga, Shiv Charan Goel and Bandana Kumari.

Upon following the similar course of action, if these MLAs get disqualified, the AAP government in Delhi would cease to exist.

Suspended AAP MLA Devinder Sehrawat Allgedly Accuses Party Of Embezzlement Of Public Donations

The ever mounting trouble for Aam Aadmi Party is never ending, with increasing number of scams to everyday news of some MLA getting arrested; the party does not seem to catch a break. In the light new event, party’s former rebel MLA Devinder Sehrawat has allegedly accused the party leadership of 16 crore worth of embezzlement of public donations, on Monday. Further urging Delhi’s Chief Minister to “clarify the fraud within 48 hours”.

In a press conference, recently Sehrawat alleged that 1600 entries amounting to donations worth 16 crore in total have disappeared after the Income Tax Department issued a notice on June 6, further proving the misappropriation use and siphoning of the donations.

“Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP is deeply mired in corruption, which is evident from vanishing of more than Rs 16 crores from the donations received from the common man,” he alleged.

MLA Sehrawat along with former AAP volunteer Neil Haslam and the secretary of Nyayabhooni, have all came forward to question the removal of data records of several previously listed donations by various companies and other eminent personalities that were earlier present on the website.

“When notices were served by the Income Tax Department, AAP, a party which had advocated transparency in political funding, removed the list of donors from the party website which earlier showed real-time data. List of 26 prominent persons whose donations were displayed on the party website but have been hidden from the income tax department and poll panel has been made public. These people had reposed faith in AAP and made contributions of over ten lakhs each which should have been handed by PAC but the money has been siphoned off and appropriated,” Sehrawat added.

Supporting the claims, Bharatiya Janata Party’s Delhi unit chief Satish Upadhyay said, “Sudden deletion of AAP’s donation list from its website and revelation of financial irregularities in the party shows that financial scams were going on in Kejriwal’s party.”

However, AAP refused to comment on the allegation claiming it as not worthy of any reaction.

AAP Splurges State Money In The Name of Education

Aam Aadmi Party-Delhi is under fire again for merciless expenditure of state money. Delhi BJP on Tuesday accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government of splurging taxpayers’ money on ads for a pan-city ‘parent-teachers meeting’, which will be held on October 15.

BJP general secretary Ashish Sood said that the ads issued by the Arvind Kejriwal-led government regarding the upcoming mega parent-teacher event showed that “some event management company” was “working behind the Delhi government”.

“Parent-teacher meeting is a normal process in schools. This government has spent crores of rupees on ads to make it seem like the education system will be reformed with their help, but these are merely serving the agenda of advertising the Chief Minister as has been done earlier through ads for the odd-even scheme, Aam Aadmi Clinics and others,” Mr. Sood said.

Leader of the Opposition in the Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta said that the AAP government was “responsible for raising more than 100 controversies during last 18 months” unconnected to the development of the Capital. This, Mr. Gupta said, was an attempt by the AAP “to hide its failures”. “The government repeatedly raises fresh controversies even as the moot question remains: when will it start working for the people?”

“The government has put the Land Pooling Policy of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), which envisaged the building of 20 lakh houses in Delhi in a time-bound manner, in cold storage. On the one hand it talks about bringing the DDA under its control and on the other hand it is not allowing the DDA to implement this ambitious policy,” Mr. Gupta said.

Tihar Jail, the most preferred destination of AAP lawmakers

tihar
When Arvind Kejriwal formed the AAP party, he promised the Delhi people to present a clean image and corruption free political model in Indian politics. He had promised that the party would only induct clean image people and there would be ‘zero tolerance’ against corruption in the party.

The people of Delhi trusted the new party twice and in 2015, the party successfully won the assembly elections with a landslide victory. After taking the reins of Delhi, the Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal and his party changed the colours like a chameleon.

The AAP-led government in Delhi has broken all the records and promises made to the people of Delhi. The party has set an absurd example of giving a maximum number of legislators facing criminal cases. In the history of Delhi, this is happening first time when the lawmakers turned into lawbreakers.

Twelve MLAs of the party made a tour of Tihar Jail, and 21 legislators may face disqualification because of their irregular appointments as Parliamentary Secretaries. In fact, the idea of launching the AAP party was a full proof plan to dupe the people of Delhi. An Association of Democratic Reforms while analysing the election affidavits of AAP had revealed that 27 out of 67 legislators had criminal cases against them.

Arvind Kejriwal always tried to defend his party’s legislators. He had tried to defend Jitender Singh Tomar when the police found his law degree ‘fake’. Tomar was not expelled from the party, and he is still in the party fold. Moreover, Somnath Bharti was not expelled who was arrested in the case of domestic violence.

The police have sufficient evidence against the AAP legislators and leaders. The police arrested the legislators after the proper investigations. However, Arvind Kejriwal always blames the BJP’s involvement in sending his legislators in Jail.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next Delhi assembly session to be held in Tihar Jail

tihar

A day after the arrest of AAP legislator, Amanatullah Khan, the Delhi Police has arrested another legislator Somnath Bharti in a case of damaging the public property. Bharti is arrested for assaulting the security guards of AIIMS. It seems the next Delhi assembly session would be held in Tihar Jail as day by day the Delhi police have been arresting the AAP MLA’s in criminal cases.

As per the information, the Chief Security Office of AIIMS had lodged a complaint against the MLA in the second week of September that Bharti along with his supporters misbehaved with the security guards at the entrance of AIIMS. And he also instigated his goons to damage the fence of government property.

He also gave permission to his goons with JCB machines to enter the premises of AIMMS from Gautam Nagar nullah road side and also beaten up the security persons deployed in AIIMS. Delhi police finally arrested him on Thursday. The legislator has been facing the case of domestic violence registered by his wife and this is the second case against him.

One by one the AAP legislators have been indulging in criminal activities and facing the arrests. The number of the legislators arrested by the police in criminal cases reached at 20. The day is not far when the Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal will hold the next assembly session in Tihar Jail.

When the party founded by the AAP national head Arvind Kejriwal in 2012, the party promised to give a corruption-free and ideal model in Indian political system. However, the party diverted from its real track and topped in the country as the majority of the AAP leaders and 20 legislators are facing criminal cases.

In the regime of AAP government, the national capital has topped in the country for the highest number of criminal cases.

Insensitive AAP minister drives away leaving security guards injured

gopal
Once again, another AAP minister Gopal Rai has come into limelight for his insensitivity as the minister left his security men left in the lurch when a vehicle of his cavalcade overturned in Chhattisgarh.

The AAP MLA and incumbent minister Gopal Rai did not show sympathy to his security guards who were injured in the accident. Five jawans were injured and one died in the accident but the Rai;s car drove away.

The jawans were escorting the AAP minister, while he was on his way to Bhanupratappur. The incident happened when Rai was moving towards Bhanupratappur after attending a press conference in Kanker.

One of the pilot car’s tyre burst out and the vehicle ran into the nearby fields and overturned. While others who were escorting the Delhi minister stopped to help the injured but the minister’s car drove away.

It was an act of selfish attitude of the minister who did not bother to enquire about the overturned vehicle during his road journey. He should have stopped at the spot but he had to attend a programme.

The AAP minister reached the hospital to meet the injured security men after attending the political programme. It means the political programme was the top priority of the minister and there is no value of a man’s life for the AAP legislator.

A security man lost his life that was in the cavalcade of the minister. But the minister has not shown his sympathy on the spot when the vehicle was overturned.

If a minister can’t bother about the lives of his security men then how come he would protect the lives of Delhi people if something happens, unfortunately?

Delhi dying and Sisodia enjoying

sisodia
When the entire national capital has been facing the ‘chikungunya’ problem and over 11 people died due to the disease, Kejriwal’s deputy Manish Sisodia enjoying the foreign junket in Finland.

A picture of the Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia having ice cream gone viral and his state is suffering from the disease. The Chief Minister of Delhi has gone to Bengaluru for the surgery and his deputy is busy in Finland.

Kejriwal has not kept any portfolio and his deputy Manish Sisodia officiates in the absence of his top boss. However, the pictures on social media depicting that the vacations at Finland are more important than the immediate return to his own country where his state has been combating with ‘chikungunya’.

When the AAP party took the reins of the national capital with a landslide victory, the best healthcare facilities in the city would be the one of the prominent agenda of the party in its manifesto.

However, it seems the party deliberately forgotten the promise and the poor health care facilities in the government hospitals led to the death of 11 people in Delhi. People are crying for the help but there is no proper support given to the government hospitals from Delhi government.

All the cabinet ministers are out of the city busy in other states for the upcoming assembly polls.

Satyendra Jain, the health minister of Delhi ignored his own state and was busy in the preparations for the upcoming assembly polls in Goa. Jain returned because of the flak he drew for his absence.

The AAP and Kejriwal are too busy campaigning in poll-bound States such as Punjab and Goa to pay attention to what is happening in the city.

As the city reels under a major health crisis, virtually the entire Delhi Cabinet is missing from action as ministers including Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia, Gopal Rai and Imran Hussain are not in town.

Rai is in Chhattisgarh and Hussain is on Haj pilgrimage. Only Water Minister Kapil Mishra was in Delhi when the disease broke out.

Aam Aadmi Party spent Aam Aadmi Paisa on advertisements

kejri 1
The Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi led by so-called Aam Aadmi and the Chief Minister of Delhi lavishly spent the public money on advertisements as the country’s top auditor slammed the government in its 55 pages report.

As per the report, the Delhi government spent around Rs 33 crore on a single advertisement campaign and 85 percent of the amount from the campaign was spent outside Delhi.

The report of the CAG stated that the Delhi government led by AAP spent the public money lavishly on self-projection through the advertisement. Pointing at an advertisement, the report revealed that a person was talking about the party, not the government so the party’s name was projected in the ad on state exchequer’s money.

The CAG report slammed the Delhi government for using taxpayers’ money on an advertisement campaign projecting the party’s name instead of Delhi government. The top auditor has stated that the advertisement was the party’s campaign so the party should have paid the expenses.

As per the report, the Delhi government spent Rs 526 crore on self-glorification and only provided the details of Rs 100 crore spent on the ad campaigns. The CAG has also questioned the Delhi government for spending Rs 70 lakhs on ads blaming the centre government for the poor law and order situation in the national capital.

The government spent Rs 70 lakh for bashing the Modi government on public money.

Even the CAG report has raised the questions at three ads in which the AAP party mentioned its achievements. The party has claimed to accomplish few projects which are still not completed actually.

The lavish expenditure of the Delhi government for the publicity especially for AAP party made the CAG angry for spending the state exchequer’s money on the self-projection of the party.

First time in the history of Delhi, a party has changed its colours from Aam Aadmi to Khas Aadmi Party and misused the public money by ignoring all the promises made to the public.

AAP government left Delhi people in lurch, ministers enjoying political honeymoons

 

kejriwal

The Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal is busy outside Delhi for his own health treatment instead of taking care of the national capital and the majority of ministers are enjoying their political honeymoons in other states.

Delhi’s chikungunya death toll has reached seven, with two more people both men dying of complications related to the disease. But, the Kejriwal’s ministers are busy in preparations for the assembly polls in Punjab, Goa and Gujrat.

In fact, health minister Satyender Jain has just returned from Goa when the Delhi government face ire of the people who are crying for the poor health facilities in the national capital.

The foolish health minister of Delhi, Satyender Jain cleverly tried to defend himself and said that medically, there is no death due to the diseases but media is showing deaths.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over the outbreak of dengue and chikungunya in the national capital has not accepted its sheer negligence and the party slamming the Centre for becoming an obstacle.

People are dying, the situation is worrisome but AAP ministers are over busy in the preparations for the assembly polls in other states. Instead of tackling with the situation the health minister misbehaved with media.

In the absence of Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia holds the responsibility of Delhi but he is in Brazil. There are hundreds of cases of chikungunya reported in Delhi and the government had not done proper arrangements in the hospitals to treat the patients.

When the AAP party contested the assembly polls, proper health care facilities in the government hospitals would be one top of the agendas and the point was also taken in the party’s manifesto.

However, nothing delivered by the party and now the Delhi people lost their hope. After taking the reins of Delhi, the AAP party started dreaming of winning all states in the country.

Sehrawat paid the price for speaking truth

sehrawat

The AAP legislator Devinder Sehrawat has finally paid the price for speaking the truth and the party has suspended him till pending enquiry. Sehrawat had written a letter to AAP national convener that the AAP leaders were sexually exploiting women party workers in return for tickets.

When the legislator sent the letter to Kejriwal, the party ignored the allegations levelled by Sehrawat and told that the letter was the result of Sehrawat’s frustration.

Responding to the party’s decision to suspend him, Sehrawat tweeted, “Repeated Reports of Molestation of women and sexual abuse,Ring Master Kejriwal obliging his lecherous coterie and adding more such candidates.”

In another tweet, earlier in the day he had dared the party to throw him out. The suspended legislator blamed the AAP government that with 67 legislators Kejriwal did nothing for Delhi.

He also lambasted at AAP head for not taking action against the CD submitted to him by the complainant in Sandeep Kumar’s case. He alleged that the silence over the CD of the former minister by Kejriwal means the AAP head knows what’s happening in the party.

Sehrawat further said that there is no place in AAP for those who dare to speak the truth or challenge the senior leadership. The suspended legislator has paid the price for speaking the truth.

When the former leaders and founding members of AAP, Prashant Bhushan and Yogender Yadav were expelled from the party they also stated that the party was only run by Kejriwal.

Even the party had suspended two parliamentarians Dharamvir Gandhi and Harinder Khalsa for anti-party activities. They both said that the dictatorial attitude of AAP leaders in Delhi along with Kejriwal did not let them continue their work in Punjab. When they raised their voice they were suspended from the party.
