Future of AAP: Kejriwal under Congress-BJP scanners! (Part-1)

-Dr. Abdul Ruff Colachal

 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) that came to power in Delhi as a rude shock to the then leading parties like Congress and BJP ruling the state capital state alternatively since  the Delhi state came into being. Arvind Kejriwal, the crusader for social causes, led the political regime change in Delhi and sent shock waves to entire country of arrival of a serious threat to corrupt politicians.

Congress party that promotes corruption officially through its governments across the nation is worst affected outfit.

But corrupt politicians n all parities woke up to face the challenge to their illegal and immoral operations through political parties and Congress and BJP led that opposition.

While the Congress-BJP duo and central government though its Lt governor   accelerate the move to unseat AAP government and end Kejriwal  politics by  falsely implicating him in corruption cases, poor Delhi CM is still thinks his “honesty” and people of Delhi would save him.

Thus the man Delhi people chose to lead Delhi state and India at large immersed in petty politics, forgetting about the role the people have bestowed upon him, though he knows the carpet is bring pulled  from under his feet by Congress-BJP duo.

Is Kejriwal a prisoner?

 The image of “Great” Arvind Kejriwal lost first when his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) lost all five parliamentary seats in his Delhi state to BJP as he himself did not contest form there but went to UP on a failed mission to defeat the PM candidate Narendra Modi in Varanasi which BJP won easily.

However, the defeat taught Kejriwal a useful lesson about the secret alliance between two national parties Congress and BJP not to let the AAP make any inroads in the country because that new party would destroy both the essentially Hindutva parties. It did not help Arvind slash down his tone of arrogance towards fellow leaders like Prashant Bhushan, however, which did tell on the course tough time of AAP’s survival in the state.

True AAP is the ruling party with enough  majority and even if it loses a few more MLAs crossing over to BJP nothing would affect the fortunes of the party  in the near future but, however, its image as a the great party is slowing  falling down.

Kejriwal’s arrogance, even if for the sake of purity of politics, has clearly affected the future of the party as a possible national party. That is indeed the success of secret alliance between BJP and Congress. A united AAP would have faced and repelled convincingly all accusations and destabilization efforts of these parties but now even his former comrades are also against him, proving a log for the BJP-Congress duo to swim in the troubled Delhi waters.

Continued arrogance in the face to harsh conspiracies and rough political wealthier is indeed madness. By refusing to read the writing Delhi walls, Arvind commits a serious crime against Delhiites and India.

Delhiites and Indians looked forward to AAP save the nation and people from the corrupt and fanatic politicians but Kejriwal doesn’t go beyond Delhi where he is made a prisoner by Congress-BJP duo.

If anyone thinks Congress is not a Hindutva party like BJP  they are terribly mistaken, after all,  it is the Congress which is instrumental in the fostering of Hindutva parties in the secular like BJP and VHP and their “mother RSS”, India to  keep Muslims  under stress and strains.

Of course, RSS is mother to Indian military as well.

There is a serious complain that the  government is using the electronic  voting machine (EVMs) to produce  a pro-BJP verdict in the polls and in the local poll of Delhi Corporations the allegation became strong enough though the BJP government preferred not to take notice of it.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) members have blamed the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) malpractice for its defeat.

Kejriwal, unlike what the Congress government had described him, is not childish and he is well versed in political manners too. After his defeat in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal congratulated the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and expressed his willingness to work with the winning party for the betterment of Delhi.

In a major setback to the Aam Admi Party, the BJP swept the municipal corporation polls in Delhi. The results showed that AAP had lost almost half of its vote share while the BJP increased theirs by almost 4% to 37% as compared to the 2015 assembly polls. JP sweeps MCD Polls with 181 wards; AAP finishes a distant second with 48 wards, Congress gets 30, indicating upper hand for the saffron party

Following the BJP’s victory in the MCD polls, Congress leaders like Delhi chief Ajay Maken announced their resignations from their posts.

However, the AAP government or its CM Kejriwal did not resign to make opponent BJP and Congress rejoice overboard.

The part faced losses in wards of constituencies held by senior AAP leaders and MLAs Satyendra Jain and Somnath Bharti and others like Alka Lamba, Gopal Rai and Kapil Mishra. AAP blamed tampering of electronic voting machines (EVMs).

The AAP continued to remain in denial and insisted that it was not a victory for Prime Minister Narendra Modi but for the electronic voting machines (EVMs). “This is an EVM wave, not a Modi wave,” said Delhi minister Gopal Rai. The party has been insisting since the Punjab assembly election results in March that the EVMs can be manipulated and that they are the major cause for BJP’s victory in the recent elections. According to some BJP leaders making Manoj Tiwari the President of the BJP state unit worked in their favour, given the changing demographics of the city. Tiwari, an actor and Bhojpuri singer, made started his political career in Samajwadi Party and moved to the BJP after 2011. He infused some new energy into the party as some of the old school RSS leaders were becoming unappealing. The Jats, Yadavs and Gujjars — the original residents of the rural pockets — are now outnumbered by Poorvanchali migrants from UP and Bihar in many of the villages of Delhi. In the unauthorised colonies, where a third of Delhi’s population lives, Poorvanchalis are the dominant group. The induction of Tiwari, a Bhojpuri celebrity who had already won for BJP the Northeast Delhi Lok Sabha seat, a Poorvanchali hub, in 2014, to wean these voters away from the AAP and the Congress seemed to have paid off well.

Possibly BJP is waiting for the next assembly poll to field Manoj Tiwari as the CM candidate to defeat Arvind as Kiran Bedi could not help the BJP with the Delhi assembly and government and  PM Modi had to make her the Lt governor of Pondicherry to save her image as successful police officer with IPS rank.
