Aam Aadmi Party blackmailed corporates: ex Anna Hazare man

New Delhi, Dec 2 (): Aam Aadmi Party blackmailed corporate for donations, says Anna Hazare’s ex blogger and journalist-author Raju Parulekar. He said that he has a CD which shows Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member’s arm twisting and blackmailing corporate companies to get monetary donations. Parulekar claims he has evidence recorded on CD’s. Aam Aadmi Party’s top members of the party have been blackmailing corporate to get donations, Parulekar said Allahabad High court notices to Kejriwal’s team has not been responded to.
The HC notice was issued on a PIL filed last year by Parulekar who claimed foreign funds collected during Anna Hazare agitation were siphoned for Aam Aadmi Party’s funding as well to another leader Manish Sisodia’s NGOs.

Parulekar in 2012 claimed to have exposed the “twisted lies” spread by Anna Hazare and his team during the India Against Corruption (IAC) agitation for a strong Lokpal. Since then, he has been out of favor with Anna Hazare and Kejriwal. When he tweeted about the CD’s, Aam Aadmi Party approached the EC saying it should not be used for any sort of publicity during elections. The Aam Aadmi Party has termed Parulekar’s allegation as the form of blackmail and slander. On charges of the Aam Aadmi Party having blackmailed corporate houses, the spokesperson said it is not even worth responding.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) the debutant political party in elections , has more than a dozen of its election nominees who are veterans and have spent years with the Congress and BJP, which AAP has branded as corrupt. Some of them also held key posts before joining the AAP. Anil Kumar Vajpayi (56), was DCC head and after differences with Shiela Dikshit is now the AAP’s nominee from Gandhi Nagar. Congress and the BJP have been asking AAP, that if they are termed corrupt parties , then why give tickets to their former leaders. Many independent councillors who were earlier aligned with the BJP and the Congress, also are in the list.

AAP was never averse to give tickets to people from other parties. They had to be honest and had done social work. Since AAP completed the selection of candidates quite early, they did not have to accommodate rebels from other parties, it said. The Delhi High Court sent a notice to Anna Hazare to appear before it on a PIL over the Anna SIM cards issued by AAP.
