 Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party National Convener Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday launched ‘Make India No. 1’ mission to make the country lead on all parameters.

Kejriwal said: “We have to make India the number 1 nation in the world once again. We have to make India great again. We are beginning a national mission called ‘Make India No.1’ today. Every citizen of this country, 130 crore people have to be connected to this mission.”

“Citizens need to come together to make India great again. It has been 75 years since we got Independence and we have achieved many things, but there is an anger among citizens that many small nations that got freedom after us have moved ahead of us,” said the AAP Convener.

“Why did India lag behind? Every citizen is asking this,” he added, giving example that Singapore got independence 15 years after India, and that Japan and Germany were destroyed in World War II.

Kejriwal went on to say that “If we leave this to these parties and leaders, India will go back 75 more years as some of them love the family and some love their friends.” He further urged BJP, Congress, and other political parties to join AAP’s national mission, saying that everyone needs to come together for it.

Delhi CM said that people of India are the best people, “yet we were left behind.”

“We are not short of anything, we 130 crore people will now have to come together and take over the reins of the country,” he added.

While counting the parameters, he said that we have to make arrangements for good and free education for 27 crore children. “We cannot say that schools cannot be opened in hills or tribal areas. Whatever money will be spent, we have to do it,” he added.

Secondly, he said: “We have to make arrangements of free and good treatment for all.”

Third, “Our youth power is the biggest strength. Employment will have to be arranged for each and every youth.”

“Fourth thing, every woman should get respect. The Right to safety and equality should be given to them.”

“And finally, today the farmer’s son does not want to become a farmer.
Such a system will have to be made that farmers get full price for their crop and the son of the farmer must have a sense of pride to become farmers,” Kejriwal said.

“Today I appeal to 130 crore people to join this national mission. We have nothing to do with any party, this is not a mission of any party”, said AAP national Convener.

PIL filed in Bombay HC to seek probe in expenses of CM Eknath Shinde’s Dussehra rally

In a petition filed in the Bombay High Court, a social worker has asked the source of money and sought a probe against Chief Minister Eknath Shinde under the provisions of the Money Laundering Act and the Income Tax for allegedly spending “Rs 10 crore or more” during his Dussehra rally at MMRDA grounds in Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) on October 5.

Deepak Jagdev, a social worker, petitioned through advocate Nitin Satpute asking the court to direct central agencies such as the CBI, Mumbai Police Economic Offence Wing, and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to investigate the fund of Rs. 10 crore or more used by the unregistered party led by Eknath Shinde in the CM’s Dussehra Rally on Wednesday.

he petitioner raised the question of the use of public transport, such as the 1,700 Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) buses, for transporting Shinde’s supporters from various parts of the state to BKC, which caused a lot of inconvenience to the average man.

Social activists have raised the question that “What is the source of money?” as huge amount of money was spent for advertisements in newspapers, to rent the BKC ground, songs, teasers, putting over 2000 hoardings, and food packets, and “more than Rs. 10 crores has been paid to the State Transport.’

Drawing comparison with incarcerated political leaders, the plea states: “If Sanjay Raut can be jailed for Rs. 56 lakh and Anil Deshmukh for Rs. 4.5 crore of his own property, then Shinde is also liable for Rs. 10 crore.”

The plea asserts that there is a high probability that black money has been used for this public rally by spending Rs 10 crore. The source of black money and funding needs to be investigated.
