Promise you won't use AAP fund to pay legal fee: Chanda Bandh Satyagraha to Kejriwal

arvind kejriwalNew Delhi. April 5, 2017 (Yes Punjab News)  

Chanda Bandh Satyagraha has asked Kejriwal not to use party's funds (Chanda) to pay for legal fee to Ram Jethmalani for the personal defamation case filed by Arun Jaitley.


Munish Raizada

As the news spread that Deputy CM of Delhi Manish Sisodia has asked for legal fee be paid by the state treasury, Raizada- convener of Chanda Bandh Satyagraha- expressed concern that hard earned money of public donated towards the party funds might be siphoned to pay for this court case.



Raizada said that defamation case was filed by Jaitley on Kejriwal as an individual and hence, Kejriwal should bear the fee and all other expenses from his own pocket.


He said Kejriwal was trying to make it a Sate Vs Jaitley case, where as it was essentially Jaitley Vs Kejriwal case. He said today, public was being made to pay for legal fee, tomorrow when Kejriwal loses the battle, the public would be made to pay for damages also.




Raizada is currently engaged in an internal battle with Aam Aadmi Party. He has been leading a Chanda Bandh Satyagraha (No List: No Donation campaign) against the party since December 2016.



The Satyagraha is an 'ideological battle' with corrupt leadership of AAP who have hidden the donors' list from public view since June 2016. Satyagraha has been saying that Chanda Ghotala be investigated.


Launched 5 months back, Chanda Bandh Satyagraha has demanded resurrections of three principles:


1. Restore Financial Transparency: Chanda Bandh Satyagraha 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.


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.
