Chartered Accountants come forward to donate Raghav Chadha's campaign
NEW DELHI: AAP's South Delhi Lok Sabha candidate Raghav Chadha, who is himself a Chartered Accountant by profession, met with a delegation of CAs from South Delhi in presence of Rajya Sabha MP and Senior Chartered Accountant ND Gupta, Ex-ICAI President Naveen Gupta and Senior Chartered Accountant Pankaj Mangal on Saturday. The CAs presented a collection of cheques towards Raghav Chadha's election campaign.
The delegation held a brief discussion with him regarding his profile, his work experience and vision of Aam Aadmi Party for Delhi. They congratulated him on being one of the youngest candidates for the Lok Sabha elections from not just Delhi but the whole country. They also appreciated the fact that he was able to accomplish this without any political background or muscle power, but on the basis of merit alone.
Raghav Chadha thanked the delegation for supporting him; "As a Chartered Accountant myself, I know that CAs value hard work, diligence, transparency, merit and precision and thus I am humbled by your faith in me."
Speaking to the delegation, Raghav Chadha said " South Delhi has immense potential for development but politics of muscle and money power has hindered its progress. Elected MP from South Delhi has not done any work in the past five years. Successive Congress and BJP governments have also neglected the core issues of providing basic amenities since independence."
He said, "The Aam Aadmi Party government is the first government to lay emphasis on education, healthcare and ensuring access to basic amenities for all. Working on improving sewage systems, pipeline infrastructure among other things. Arvind Kejriwal's government has been able to achieve major milestones in the past four years but there is more to be done, which could not be possible due to obstructions by the Central Government. Hopefully, when all the seven MPs are elected from the AAP, Delhi will see exponential growth in its pace of development."
