The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will move the Election Commission next week to seek disqualification of a BJP MLA in Delhi, Mr Ranjit Singh for having cheated the election authorities and the people by having produced a fake Scheduled Caste certificate to contest the polls. Mr Singh used a fake SC certificate to contest the 2013 Delhi assembly election from Gokulpur (reserved) constituency in North East Delhi.
The party has decided to move the EC under the relevant provisions of the Representation of the People Act, after having perused the relevant documents, from which a clear case of disqualification is made out. According to the AAP, it is not only a clear and proven case of concealment of facts before the election authorities, but a case of forgery and cheating is also made out against this MLA. Read More

The Aam Aadmi Party will begin its signature campaign demanding fresh election in Delhi, on Wednesday, August 13.
The Aam Aadmi Party demands that the BJP-led central government should immediately withdraw the union home ministry’s completely unjustified notification which severely curtails the jurisdiction of the Anti Corruption Branch of Delhi government.
The July 23 notification of the home ministry, reported by the Hindustan Times today (Monday), renders the very existence of the Delhi ACB as futile. It is extremely shocking that the Narendra Modi government which came to power on the promise of eradicating corruption, is doing completely the opposite of that. The amendment to the original notification of 1993, now states :“ This notification shall apply to the officers and employees of the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi.” Read More
Myth: The agitation opposes aptitude test, which is being used all over the world.
Truth: The movement has opposed CSAT but not the idea of an aptitude test. The older pattern of examination too had some questions that tested linguistic and quantitative skills (included in General Studies then). This was never objected to. The objection now is that CSAT is not the right kind of aptitude test. Specifically, the objection is that: 1) CSAT has more weightage and higher cut-off than is appropriate; 2) Items on quantitative skills have disproportionate weight as compared to analytical and decision making skills; 3) Section on language comprehension skills is systematically biased against non-English students. In other words, the objection is that the current CSAT is neither language-neutral nor discipline neutral. That is why they have demanded scrapping of CSAT. The students have proposed more than one model of how an aptitude test appropriate for Civil Service may be designed. Read More
