    So Called AAP Members….?
    BJP leader Girish Vyas tried to grab some media attention on Friday by setting stage for inducting some new members in his party, claiming that those were AAP party workers switching to their side. However AAP refuted the claims as a ploy to hoodwink the people.

    Nagpur News.

    Reacting strongly to the BJP leader Girish Vyas’s claims of some members of Aam Aadmi Party defecting to BJP, AAP has charged the saffron party of luring some unknown people, dubbing them as AAP members. Defending the strength of AAP as unbroken, AAP’s District Spokesperson Girish Nandgaonkar said that their party comprises self-motivated volunteers working to cleanse the corrupt political system, without any personal expectations whatsoever.

    In a press release issued here on Friday, Nandgaonkar alleged unlike Congress and BJP, who remunerate their workers with money, liquor and the opportunity to indulge in corruption, AAP’s volunteers are not compensated for their time in any way, not even for the petrol they spend travelling on party work. “Their remuneration is the satisfaction of working to improve our nation, coupled with the occasional police baton. To claim that anyone from AAP would join parties steeped in corruption like the BJP or the Congress is an obscene insult,” he said.

    Coming clear on the claims made by Vyas, he reiterated that not even one out of the list of 39 names circulated by the BJP was recognized by anyone in AAP’s Nagpur District leadership. “It is laughable to claim that they were AAP volunteers, let alone post holders of any sort in the party. The individuals in question may or may not be ordinary members of the party, which is open to anyone not convicted of crimes involving moral turpitude. All that is required is to fill a brief form and to pay a membership fee of Rs. 10/- for 3 years. The ordinary member need not have further interaction with the party after this. Presently even this membership fee of Rs. 10/- has been suspended and anyone can become an ordinary member for free. However, the difference between ordinary members and Volunteers, or “Active Member” is significant, and it is shameful that leaders of the BJP are attempting to hoodwink the public by possibly substituting one for the other to confuse the people.

    He added that similar antics had been attempted by Nitin Gadkari during the Delhi elections and act only served to expose the BJP before the public. Instead of learning from the experience, BJP now repeats such shameful attempts. They are part and parcel of the BJP’s apparent strategy of three C’s – Convince, Confuse, and Corrupt, mostly confuse and corrupt as they appear to have very little to convince the people with. “The most ridiculous part of this spectacle is perhaps that the BJP believes it has achieved something by acquiring – by purchase, or otherwise, persons lacking in vision or ideology, who are incapable of loyalty to an ideal,” he reacted.
