Milan Gupta's formal complaint to the Election Commission against Aam Aadmi Party establishes that the 28th march NC meeting was unconstitutional and asks EC to demand unedited footage from all cameras.

To,

Election Commission of India,

Nirvachan Sadan,

New Delhi -110001

Dear Sir,

This is with reference to Aam Aadmi Party's(AAP) press release dated 28 March 2015 made available by the party's secretariat to the media,the party members, the general public (and the Election Commision of India) through the party's official website link http://www.aamaadmiparty.org/aam-aadmi-party-press-release-28th-march-2015 

Vide the aforesaid press release it has been informed that the National Council of AAP met on 28th March 2015 in which certain decisions and resolutions were taken. A copy of the press release is attached for your convenience, as Annexure 1  (You may cross verify the contents of the attachment with the aforesaid internet link too if you like.)In case, Aam Aadmi Party's secretariat has sent a written communication to Election Commission of India(ECI) with respect to the purported National Council meeting of 28 March 2015, kindly consider this email with reference to such a communication also. (Kindly request you to upload such a written communication on ECI's website also, in that case).

I am a member of Aam Aadmi Party. Attached with this email in Annexure 2 is my profile summary(with my earlier residential address) that was displayed on Aam Aadmi party's official website.

I bring to your attention that the purported National Council meeting of AAP on 28 March 2015, as informed vide the aforementioned press release, was wholly ultra-vires the constitution of AAP on records of the ECI. The irrefutable evidence of its illegality has been furnished by the party's secretariat itself.

The party's secretariat has claimed vide the aforementioned press release in para 2(a) that out of a total of 392 members of the National Council, 311 attended the meet. I shall demonstrate here that total strength of National Council members is not more than 300, and the figure of 392 members is therefore wholly false, misleading and contemptuous of basic respect of rules and laws.

Article IV- F of AAP constitution registered with ECI governs the composition of the National Council. As per the article, the National Council consists of convenors from all the states and the districts. In addition , it can co-opt upto a maximum of 50 members. It is not a matter of dispute, so far, that the no member has been co-opted into the National Council till date(In case, it is claimed so by the party' secretariat, even that will not explain the super high figure of 392 members in the National Council).

AAP;s constitution, like all the democratic parties' constitution, has clearly written throughout that the convenors at all levels are elected, and not appointed. The Active Members with voting rights as defined in AAP constitution are the foundation of the party who make AAP a bottom-up elected organisation. 

Article IV-D-c(i) and (vi)  specify that the District Convenor shall be elected by District executive, which in turn shall be elected by Active members in that district.

Similarly,  article IV-E-c(i) and (vi) state that the State convenor shall be elected by State executive, which in turn shall be elected by Active members in that state.

Article III-C-vi mentions that the list of Active members shall be frozen one month before the call for any party elections.

However, there are no active members list or any such party elections held anywhere in the party through Active members(except, in National Council members' first meeting on 24 Nov 2012). The evidence of this has been provided by the party's secretariat itself in the edited video recording of the purported National Council meeting of 28 March 2015.

Pls refer to the video in this link ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efn4QWGk7fA )made public through AAP's official twitter web page ( https://twitter.com/aamaadmiparty/status/582050559978442752 ).

You may prefer to focus on the contents in that video for duration between 34 minutes 5 seconds to 37 minutes 50 seconds in it.

In the video, the National Convenor of AAP, while commenting and admitting on flaws in the internal organisational setup( between 34 minutes 30 seconds and 34 minutes 40 seconds) states as follows "... अभी Active members की list है नहीं .. आपको भी पता है .. हमने कहा committees बनायीं जाएँगी , हर राज्य में committee बनायेंगे , active members की list बनायेंगे, public कर देंगे.."

Further, the National Convenor admits while specifically taking the example of organisation set up in a particular state  that voting withing party is in fact missing in the entire country, not just that particular state. The National Convenor says ( between 37 minutes 24 seconds and 37 minutes 44 seconds)

"..  एक साल में कितनी voting करायी हरियाणा में ? यहाँ पर हरियाणा के साथी भी होंगे ..हाँ भाई कितनी वोटिंग करायी ?...एक वोटिंग हुई हो पूरे.. कुछ लागू तो कर के दिखाओ ..कुछ कर के तो दिखाओ ..हरियाणा में लागू कर दो हम पूरे देश में लागू कर देंगे ..)

The above statements of the National Convenor ,released officially by the party's secretariat too, are a self-providing evidence that active members list is not available, active members have not been identified, and there have been no internal party elections through out the country.

Therefore, no district convenors or state convenors can become part of AAP's National Council since no elections have taken place throughout the country for them, through a duly maintained Active Members list as per AAP's constitution.

The National Council can be composed, therefore, only as per provision in Article IV- F which states as "All those who come together to form the Party and are present in the first meeting of the Party, shall form the first National Council of the Party."

At this point, kindly refer to letter number 4/RTI/32/2015/PPS-II/347 dated 25th February, 2015 sent by Sh Suman Kumar Das, Under Secretary, CPIO, to the undersigned in response to an RTI application filed by me in this regard wherein I had requested to be provided the names, in serial order, of the persons who came together to form the Aam Aadmi Party.

I was informed that document in this regard runs to 957 pages, and I could get the same on payment of Rs 1914/-. I made the payment vide receipt number 20098 dated 09/03/2015 to the ECI, and received the required documents accordingly

The total number of persons, in the records of ECI shared with me as above or otherwise, who came together to form the Aam Aadmi Party does not exceed 300. This is clearly a matter of record with ECI and is verifiable.

Therefore, the National Council members cannot exceed 300 in total as per records available with ECI, the AAP constitution registered with ECI, and the admitted video evidence shared as above.

It is thus demonstrated that the purported National Council consisting of 392 members as informed vide the press release that met on 28 March 2015 was completely ultra-vires the AAP constitution, and the figures quoted by the party secretariat are false, misleading and demeaning to average constitution abiding party members and citizens.

Also ,there are many National Council members on records of ECI  also, who have not been served any notice of expulsion by AAP, but were not allowed to attend the purported National Council meet of 28th March 2015. Such members are also willing to make a written statement to that effect and this has been reported in the media too.

Besides, the aforesaid evidence, there have been much more serious and grave reports of violence, subjugation & coercion having held inside the private and heavily guarded closed venue of the aforementioned purported National Council meet. In fact, the local law and order administration has had to duly register a FIR (Number 143 of 2015 dated 30/0/2015 at P.S. Kapashera) under various sections of the Indian Penal Code. A copy of the FIR is attached in this mail as Annexure 3.

Aam Aadmi Party is not only a registered party under section 29A of Representation of People's Act, 1951, it is also a recognised party by the Election Commission of India, under the Election Symbols(Reservation and Allotment) Order , 1968. Under para 16A of the Symbols order, every recognised party is expected to follow lawful directions and instructions of the Commission which it discharges under broad authority of article 324 of Constitution of India.

In exercise of such powers under para 16A of Symbol order, article 324 of Constitution of India, and with view of safeguarding general public interest in maintaining faith in democracy based on certain concessions to recognised parties and with the evidences presented to you I sincerely urge you to kindly

1) Instruct the Aam Aadmi party's National Secretary, Sh Pankaj Gupta, to share the full unedited video recording of the proceedings of the purported National Council meeting of 28 March 2015 with the Election Commission of India. The unedited video recordings must contain recordings from all cameras present in the venue. No record of Election Commission of India, shall be updated with respect to the National Council meet of 28 March without making the full unedited video recordings available to the Commission.

2) Instruct the SHO, P.S. Kapashera, to share the full collected video evidence against FIR 143 of 2015 with the Election Commission of India.

3) Declare that the the aforementioned press release in Annexure 1 from Aam Aadmi Party's secretariat  or any written communication to Election Commission with regard to the purported National Council meeting of 28 March 2015,as ultra-vires in light of evidence available and made available. 

4) Declare the purported National Council meet of Aam Aadmi Party of 28 March 2015 as ultra vires of the AAP constitution in light of evidence available and made available to the Election Commission.

5) Declare the purported National Council meet of Aam Aadmi Party of 28 March 2015 as ultra vires in light of  sufficient coercion and violence  at the venue.

Thanking you,

With regards,

Sunil Kumar Lal, of Lucknow, who has designed the Aam Aadmi Party logo claims that he has never transferred the copyright to the party and disillusioned with the developments within the party, has resigned from his membership as well as revoked permissions for the party to use the logo in the future.

Sunil Kumar claims that he, along with other volunteers had supported the party with one ambition - to free India of corruption. He says that the dreams of volunteers are attached to the logo and he cannot bear to see it used as the backdrop of toxic politics.

Read full letter here:

AAP Resignation & Logo Revoke

It is unclear where the law stands on this and I am asking a few people for their opinion. I will update here. Regardless, this is yet another way Aam Aadmi Party volunteers are resisting a hijack of control over their party. I had mentioned earlier that even if there was a conspiracy behind AAP, it would prove difficult to implement because of volunteers.

Update: I asked Apar Gupta, a litigator with experience in areas of intellectual property and technology whether Sunil Kumar can invoke his copyright to refuse Aam Aadmi Party the use of their logo and he says "will need to be litigated. Will depend on the existence and the terms of the transfer deed."

Earlier, another AAP volunteer, Kundan Sharma, who had given the blue Wagon R that Arvind Kejriwal used to use had asked for it to be returned. Outlook reports that Kumar Vishwas had said that it could be returned to him, if he wanted it. Dissenting volunteers had on and off been demanding refunds of donations and more.

the following is a mail sent by an AAP Volunteer, whose name is deliberately undisclosed.

Hello All,

AAP Volunteers are running a national calling campaign and talking to NC members.

WHY?

(1) We decided not to rely on news and learn what the problem is from AAP
(2) We want to learn about the Real Issue at hand
(3)  We want to convey our voice
(4)  #BelieveInParticipatoryDemocracy  and work towards #United AAP

So, in the process we learnt several things. One important thing was that quite a few NC members HAVE NOT received the 28 march NC meeting invitation. While a few e-mail IDs in the EC list of NC members were outdated, there are other IDs that are current and haven't received the invitation. On their request, I am sending out a copy of the "official email" that was sent out.

I request the national secretary to take note and initiate corrective measures. As per AAP's constitution, members are to be notified of NC meeting at least 21 days in advance. I urge all NC members to attend the meeting on 28 March.

Reproduced below is the official email that was sent on March 7, 2015:

AAP volunteer Milan Gupta has filed an RTI with the Election Commission and obtained the National Council Members list that Aam Aadmi Party should have published on their website and has not. Milan Gupta has made the list public.

Milan Gupta, a worker of Aam Aadmi Party has released the National Council member list that Aam Aadmi Party has not put up on its website and is calling out to supporters of Aam Aadmi Party to urge them to attend the National Council meeting and strive to save the party from its imminent sabotage. His video explains his credentials in the party (since anyone raising questions is termed as a BJP agent these days) and his message. The list follows below.

Dear Meritorious Chief Minister,

Congratulations on the sweeping win of Aam Aadmi Party in the Delhi Assembly elections. As someone cheering the rise of the promise of more inclusive democracy in India, I have been following the story of Aam Aadmi Party since the beginning.

Yesterday should have been a day of celebration. It was not. The reason is your all male cabinet. Worse, for all your claims of listening to the people and being accountable, there has not been so much as a whisper of explanation for excluding women from the seat of power in Delhi. The Aam Aadmi Party that bragged about the quality of its women candidates is apparently at a loss to find a single one worthy of the cabinet.

In your speeches, you admitted to arrogance of victory in Delhi leading to the defeat in the Lok Sabha Elections. This time after warning followers, your arrogance in Delhi will lead to the defeat of 46% of those who supported you, while you cannot be shaken from your position for the next five years.

Because it is arrogance that decides that you will deliver women safety, yet sees no need to include women in the cabinet. Women are more impacted than men by issues related to water, education, health or inflation, as those tasked with the functioning of the household in limited resources in the vast majority of Indian society. It is women who ferry water the most, make compromises in nutrition to be able to afford food daily, care for the ill and as the ones giving birth to babies and caring in their early years are also a large segment of healthcare consumers in addition to routine health issues common to all. It is women who face greater resistance to ambitions in education. It is women who face catcalls and gangrapes and sexual harassment far more than men.

Being a woman in India is a different view of the world than being a man in India. No matter how sensitive or capable a cabinet minister, I doubt if he will THINK like a woman.  The idea that a woman's thinking does not need to be present at all in the highest decision making body for the state is misogyny. In all your grandeur, you may imagine that men are more efficient and deliver best, but the fact is that many women not from the upper classes cannot speak freely to men. In all your wisdom, you may believe that it is not important for the Minister for women and children - who would be the one meeting victims of brutal rapes once this intoxication with your own yet-to-be proven competence dies down. I doubt a victim sees it the same way. Or is the plan to speak with doctors and male members of the family instead of the women or conveniently use some woman MLA without authority for the purpose?

I don't doubt that a man handling the wellbeing of women and children is a refreshing deviation from the norm, but the need for PR stunts is over. Does a cabinet that cannot even see competence in women in understanding issues of women better than men respectfully handle the difficulties of women? I don't think so.

So far, it seems AAP is happy to use women volunteers to work. Will use a few women candidates to stop looking like cavemen, use their eloquence as spokes people and high profile campaigners but when it comes to nurturing women or recognizing their competence or being willing to share in POWER, AAP so far seems to have come up with a big fat zero.

From seven candidates in the previous election to six in this election. From one woman to none. Your party has consistently claimed to plan to empower women, but in this one year what we see is a deterioration. Not just a failure of Aam Aadmi Party to put up women candidates in any proportion vaguely corresponding to that mythical representation, or decreasing numbers in the tiny number offered.

A woman MLA who joined AAP in its darkest hours, stayed loyal, worked her ass off for the party, including being one of the strong pillars for your own efforts in Varanasi, has experience being on the women's commission, IS a woman herself is apparently not "competent" enough to be on a cabinet where a male lawyer handles the portfolio for women and children. And I am sure the other women candidates have competencies too. You don't get to be a good councillor without being able to handle authority or work. Two of AAP's women MLAs have been councillors. One of AAP's woman MLA's is an ex-cabinet minister in the previous AAP cabinet.

Here is a quote from your party website, since a sub-category of your supporters no longer seem to think I am in Indian interest:

"We believe that until the Women’s Reservation Bill is passed by Parliament, there is a lot that political parties can do to ensure proportional representation for women. "

http://www.aamaadmiparty.org/womens-day

Here I am, getting organized "blocking" of my handle by your supporters on Twitter, for upholding the views of YOUR party that you seem to have forgotten. Or was that an election Jumla?

There is a Muslim and a dalit in your cabinet and rightly so. I don't imagine this is an accident given that several other favorites are not on the cabinet, so I assume it is okay to take the representation of women for granted, while other kinds of representation are still respected.

Worse, you or your spokesperson don't even think this important enough to address openly and with your much advertised accountability. Not before the cabinet swearing in, not after. It is not like you are unaware when you retweet an absurd tweet by Javed Jafferi about Bandana Kumari being a Deputy Speaker as though that should be enough. What power does a deputy speaker have to govern?

In essence, in your ARROGANCE you are saying that men will deliver women's needs and women are not competent enough to do it. Let alone governing other aspects of the state. This is classic patriarchy and gives rise to the question, "Changing politics, yes, but for better or worse?"

If Hindus ruling a secular state is right wing supremacy, how is men ruling a supposedly gender respecting state anything but MALE SUPREMACY?

I also suggest that when AAP campaigns in the future, bragging about its women candidates, it discloses whether the candidates are good enough to be trusted in the cabinet, or just fillers for your statistics on women representation. This is important, because if your women candidates are not competent, then why should the constituencies you conned into voting for them suffer from their "incompetence" while you protect your government and reputation from it? Hain na?

Think about it. It is the start of your government and you have begun it with a grave wrong to gender equality. This will not go unnoticed. Not by citizens, not by AAP's political opponents. While nothing can force you to give this represenatation to Delhi's women for the next five years if you decide against it, it will be a blow to the Aam Aadmi Party itself in other places too.

A blogger who had great hope in AAP and is now worried about AAP being a problem to women's rights.
