AAP Media Updates
Paid News by Gurudas Kamat
It has come to our notice that Gurudas Kamat , Member of Parliament , Mumbai Northwest has initiated a paid media campaign to ensure that only positive news stories appear about him.
Please note this article –
We have been given to understand that there is a concerted campaign to ensure that the media does not feature AAP candidates in its publications. This is extremely disturbing but we are certain that the media, which the fourth pillar of democracy will not succumb to unscruplous tactics, especially in view of the fact that Mr Kamat has been incommunicado and conspicuous by his indifference to the media in the last five years. Such attempts to purchase the media is a dangerous trend and goes against the tenets of democracy and free and fair elections. AAP will initiate complaints about these tactics in the appropriate forums.
Irrigation SIT report not tabled
The Chief Minister had constituted a Special Investigation Team underMadhav Chitale to inquire into the 70000 crore irrigation scam in Maharashtra ,exposed by Anjali Damania and Vijay Pandhare in 2013. The Aam Aadmi Party had declared at the very inception that the 'Terms of Reference' were extremely weak, with no powers to question officials or politicians and a mere eyewash,that would never unearth the scam. The SIT failed to complete the inquiry even in its limited framework, within the period stipulated and had to be given an extension. The report has been finally submitted but the Chief Minister has not tabled it yet, for reasons best known to him. AAP demands that the SIT report be made public immediately. We have learned that the report submitted is strangely without an Executive Summary and Conclusions. If a committee of such stature submits an incomplete and inconclusive report , then it becomes all too obvious that that this is just a hatchet job. The Chief Minister should make the report public immediately so that ordinary citizens, have access to information and know whether the perpetrators of the 70000 crore scam have been held accountable.
Sena Corporator Raju Padhye hounds activist.
Renowned women and child rights activist Avisha Kulkarni is being constantly intimidated by Shiv Sena corporator Raju Padhye. It is with great difficulty that she finally managed to file an FIR about his threats and molestation, on the 25th of February. The police have charged him with very light offences and made no attempt to arrest him.Since then his attacks have become more vicious and his goons threatened her and rammed her car yesterday. AAP condemns such dastardly attacks on activists,particularly women. We support Avisha in her fight for justice and demand that the police take strict action against Raju Padhye and provide protection to her. It is shameful that this 'goondaraj' thrives brazenly in Mumbai.
