A year back, some members of this community contended that AAP will not play politics of religion and will be "truly secular" unlike BJP/Congress. Kejriwal's letter to Muslims is still being distributed as pamphlets in Muslim areas in spite of him giving "clarification" for the same.
Even BJP and Congress gets served such notices. Where's the difference that AAP promised?
My concern is not with AAP accepting corporate funding. In the video, Yogendra Yadav says "If the money received is above 9,99,999 rupees, then party's supreme decision making body, the PAC will decide whether to accept the money or not".
PAC - *supreme decision making body* - isn't it exactly opposite to bottom-up principles of formation of AAP?
Can AAP continue to claim to be a bottom-up party?
Can someone from AAP post some statistics on in-party Swaraj?
1. How many policy decisions were put to vote before preparing the party manifesto? 2. How many members of the party voted? 3. How many votes were cast in favor of each of the item included in the manifesto? 4. How many such independent voting sessions were conducted? 5. What is the internal vote tally of each of the candidates who were elected for 70 seats using internal-primaries?
It would be helpful to know where AAP stands after 1 year of its formation, on the core issue of Swaraj.
I am a BJP supporter but I have to make a few things clear when it comes to party funding. BJP and Congress are right in asking AAP about the source of their funds. AAP should answer the questions.
However, BJP being a party I support also needs to come clean on its funding. I do not believe that they can skirt this question of funding any more, and it is high time they give out information in public on their source of money.
+Ganesh Shenoy, +Utkarsh Phirke, swaraj is about decentralization of government work....any organization becomes difficult to manage as it grows in size...so it adds layers of bureaucracy to keep control....that leads to loss of transparency and other problems....so decentralization is an improvement...but far better than decentralization is privatization which means government letting markets work....in the example of street lights, all private gated housing societies have perfectly working street lights....
