Walk the talk on party funding: Anna to Kejriwal

Veteran Social activist Anna Hazare castigated Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for not fulfilling the promise of putting his party’s donors list in public domain. In a letter to Kejriwal, dated Dec 23, Anna took a dig at the Kejriwal and said if change has to be brought into the system, then the leadership should walk the talk.

“For the betterment of country and the society, I kept aside several important works related to people in Maharashtra and gave you my time without any selfish interest and dreamt big for the country. But my dream has been shattered,” Hazare, who launched an anti-graft crusade, said.

He also referred to a letter written to him by Munish Raizada, a US-based medico and suspended AAP member, pointing out that donors’ records have gone off the party website since June 2016. Raizada also launched ‘no chanda’ (no donation) satyagraha at Raj Ghat on Saturday.

AAP’s national treasurer Raghav Chadha claimed that Hazare was being misled by Congress leaders on the issue while the BJP is using state agencies to threaten its donors.

On behalf of Kejriwal, he also challenged BJP president Amit Shah and Congress president Sonia Gandhi to come out clean on party donors and have a debate on the issue at Jantar Mantar.

“You made several promises, which includes putting the donations received by the AAP on the party website.

“The talks of social change, which we espoused, are fading and politics and money are becoming important. The sense of humility is also fading.

“Or else, you would not have taken off the names of people from your website who gave donations to the party during trying times,” Hazare said.

He also expressed displeasure over functioning of the AAP. Hazare said that while other parties get donations from people for their “selfish interests”, people give funds to AAP to bring in change.

“You promised change to me and the people. It pains because the promise has not been fulfilled. You have made several such promises to me and people,” Hazare said.
