Ravi Sharma, who has developed the softwares AAP uses to generate donation certificates, candidate profiles and “voice of AAP” has asked Aam Aadmi Party to stop using the creations (whose code he owns) till the current problems in AAP are resolved.
I am very small volunteer of AAP and having seen recent behaviour of AAP office bearer make me think again if i need to volunteer for such people.(I still have believe in AAP as party and all volunteers who have worked hard for Delhi victory and still believe that our leaders AK/YY/PB/SS will do the right thing once they come out of their personal anger for each other)
I was working for ideology and not for few people who are sitting in AAP office or Delhi “sachiwalaya”. So with heavy heart I will take back my all efforts from AAP, I won’t ask my money back, but until current problems of AAP are not resolved I am asking @aamaadmiParty not to use the Donation certificates technology(more then 110000 certificates shared), voice of aap(85+ lakhs people reach, more then 134000 FB posts, more then 183000 tweets/retweets), Candidate profiles which collected more then 4 crores during LS and Delhi elections, Daily Donation update which was going to more then 1000 FB group with reach to 30 Lakh Facebook members and every other technology pieces which were provided by me. I still have ownership to the code rights and have control over its usage.
And my humble request to AAP Halla Bol group which was created by us, please spare me with from your abuses, You guys are part of team where you want to convey AAP positivity outside AAP and not attack your own fellow AAPians.
This follows Sunil Kumar Lal refusing AAP the rights to use its logo, which he had designed and Kundan Sharma asking Arvind Kejriwal to return the WagonR he had donated to the party.
The number of ways in which dissenting volunteers continue to resist changes they do not see as beneficial for the party continues to garner my respect. Of all my mistaken evaluations of AAP, this one stands strong – that even if the leadership of AAP is compromised, it will not be as easy for them as for other politicians to compromise stated agendas of the party.
This is one of the biggest safeguards AAP has. This tenacity. Volunteers neither bowed to the leadership, nor gave up in cynicism. In its own way, perhaps the actions of these dissenters are the real political solution for India. Not miraculously perfect parties waiting for fatal flaws, but supporters who will not abdicate their voice.
