An appeal from Aam Aadmi Party's Arvind Kejriwal
Under Anna’s leadership, India came on streets against corruption. The people demanded a strong anti-corruption law. The government did not agree. None of the parties agreed. Obviously, they couldn’t have agreed because if they passed a strong Jan Lokpal Bill, most of the politicians would be in jail and their properties would be confiscated.
My friend, our entire political system has become rotten. Most of today’s problems are due to corrupt politics. Unless it is cleansed, nothing would improve. That’s why we had to enter politics – we tried to stay away, but we realized that approach would not work. We have now formed the Aam Aadmi Party.
Gandhiji said that politics devoid of honesty and spirituality is disastrous for the country. We have to change the politics of this country. I am confident that together, we can.
I seek your time and money in this mission. Most parties are funded by big Corporates for something in return but this will not happen in Aam Aadmi Party. This party would be funded by Aam Aadmi and Aam Aurat of this country. That would be the beginning of an honest and transparent politics, unfortunately which runs on black money today.
Whatever amount you contribute – small or big – is not important. Every paisa is important, because it is honest, and it will go a long way in redefining the politics. In the interest of financial transparency, we publish the names of all the donors every week on our website.
