Raizada, who is a founder member of Lokpal.us (www.lokpal.us), that claims to be an internal pressure group within the AAP, said the party "is sitting on a volcano and it can erupt any time, if transparency and democracy are not restored in it".
Raizada, the former co-convener of AAP's Chicago-based NRI Cell, was suspended from the party's primary membership last week over 'anti-party activities'. Speaking from Chicago, he said, "Only selective invitations are being sent and the agenda of the meeting has been withheld. I demand the party to upload the list of current National Council (NC) members and agenda on the website."
"The meeting should be held with live coverage as AAP is a volunteer-driven party and preaches full transparency and accountability in its conduct. I also appeal to avoid the deployment of bouncers unlike before." He said the 'One Man One Post' principle, if applied in letter and spirit in the organisation, would create a lot of scope for grooming other leaders in the organisation.
However, Preeti Sharma Menon, national spokesperson of the AAP, refuted the charges and said Raizada was a "disgruntled" party worker and was being promoted by the Opposition. "Our overseas wing is being handled successfully by our leaders like Alka Lamba, Adarsh Shastri, and is working to expand the party's base overseas," she said.
