New Delhi [India], Feb. 05(ANI): Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party national convener Arvind Kejriwal refused to accept Geeta from a delegation of 'Chanda Bandh Satyagraha' which went to his residence to present the holy book to him on Sunday in protest of AAP's decision of fielding 21 candidates with criminal background in the just concluded Punjab assembly elections. While Munish Raizada, convener of Chanda Bandh Satyagraha, and two other volunteers were allowed to go inside the premises, the rest of the satyagrahis were forced to put down their banner and made to sit by the roadside. Although Kejriwal was available, he made Raizada and other volunteers to wait for long and finally, denied to show up and take Geeta from them. It may be noted that out of 21 tainted candidates, 9 are booked under serious criminal charges like rape, murder, kidnapping and burglary. "The motive behind this activity was to make Arvind Kejriwal realise with Bhagwad Geeta's key message about 'Karma'. By fielding tainted candidates and hiding donors' list, the Chanda Chor gang of the AAP was bent upon bringing bad Karma to the party and the public." Raizada said in a release issued in Delhi. "Aam Aadmi Party is fooling the people of Punjab with the ideals and policies which they don't even follow. We want Kejriwal to understand that Karma has its way of justice, and it is done sooner than later", said Raizada. "Aam Aadmi Party came in the politics with two major promises, transparency in political funding and to end criminality in politics. But of late, the party has complied with corrupt practices by obliterating its promises and policies", he added. Raizada is currently engaged in an internal battle with the AAP. 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 the "chanda chor" gang of the AAP. It aims to seek a pledge from the public not to donate to AAP if it does not display its donors' list", Raizada said. He alleged that "AAP top leadership has become a master of deceit. They are expert in camouflaging their corrupt practices with the emotional drama of playing victim and nonsensical blame-games. Their actions reveal their real interest. Even the Income-Tax department came out with a report which strongly proves our point that AAP has become a hub of corruption." Raizada quoted a tweet in which Kejriwal incited one of the most important messages of Bhaagwat Geeta- 'Karmanye Vadhikaaraste Ma Phaleshu Kadaachana', which means 'do your job diligently and selflessly without worrying about the outcomings, the God is watching and he will take care of it'. "The denial to accept Geeta from us portrays his inner fears which he doesn't want to show before us. It's the fear from the truthful and courageous people", Raizada said. Raizada added that the message Kejriwal wanted to spread among the volunteers with the tweet has now vanished from his memory, so we are back to help him in remembering that. "The bad Karma he is doing now is definitely going harness grave circumstances for him and the corrupt politicians of Aam Aadmi Party, because as the last line of this message goes, God is watching all of us. "At one hand, they fielded 21 candidates in Punjab Elections who come from the severe criminal background and at other they promised the people of Punjab that they will bring better law and order in the state. And on other hand they are babysitting the "Chanda Chor Gang" inside the party, and at the other, they promise people that they will put the corrupt politicians behind the bar. These are just few examples of the difference Aam Aadmi portrays between its deeds and words", he added. (ANI)
