AAM AADMI PARTY'S MONEY COLLECTION DRIVE
Money power is the bane of Indian electoral process. Money power is the beginning of political corruption and with unending cancerous growth. It is distressing that all political parties have great faith in money power much more than people power and Aam Aadmi party has proved itself to be no exception.
Every political party collects money by coercion, threats and quid pro quo with commercial and industrial establishments and business men . Many political parties often organise functions where the political leaders are supposed to be weighed by silver, garlanded with lakhs of rupee notes etc. These are all obviously some methods of converting their black money into white for accounting purposes. Rarely, people donate money to these political parties voluntarily and willingly and even if done, it would not be a large amount. However, all the political parties claim that the money collected by them is by way of donation given voluntarily. Many say that they are accounted and may also give accounts which may be fake. Aam Aadmi party also claims that the money collected are voluntary donation.
It is reported in the media that Aam Aadmi party has already mobilised over Rs.10.49 crore and it still wants more and is feverishly continuing it's money collection drive.
If a party believes that it enjoys popularity and has the support of the people, it really does not need this sort of money. When the emphasis is on money power rather than people power to get votes, then certainly that political party will end up as one of any other political party in India. By indulging in such money collection drive, Aam Aadmi party has given one more slap on the face of the Indian voter and those who believe in healthy and vibrant democratic process under the guidance of honest and selfless leaders.
