No more donations ! Stop funding the Anarchists

An early member of AAP and part of AAP’s social media campaign during Delhi elections. Disillusioned with AAP government he now runs an awareness campaign to highlight perils of donating to AAP]

The recent interview with Barkha Datt presented a new side of Arvind Kejriwal. The tone and tenor of the so called humble leader of common man had changed. The attitude reeked of arrogance so typical of men in power. Kejriwal’s claims of great achievements in Delhi bore uncanny resemblance to boastful claims of Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav of making U.P a golden state. Unfortunately with passage of time he is only exposing the bankruptcy of ideas and vision in governance.

The transformation from an activist to opposition leader was an easy one for Kejriwal. Blaming everyone without the responsibility of proving the charge wasn’t really the crusade against corruption it was made out to be.holier than thou attitude of Kejriwal held everyone in contempt. Everyone was corrupt, everyone was incompetent and in collusion to fool the common man. Scams of mind boggling proportions had prepared a fertile ground for Kejriwal’s party. Population seething with anger over failure of Manmohan’s regime were receptive to the calls of revolution.

Following the success of AAP in Delhi elections, a hysterical media went to town with invented reasons for AAP’s success. From innovative social media strategy to door to door campaigning and mohalla sabhas all sorts of theories were floated. AAP’s success depended not so much on their own efforts. It mirror’s Kejriwal’s parasitic rise feeding off other’s efforts. Delhi was the epicenter of protests against everything the common man in India despised. Anna’s Janlokpal movement, Ramdev’s agitation,Nirbhaya incident, Supreme court proceedings on scams and incarceration of corrupts like Raja and Kalmadi mobilized people against established norms. AAP got an electorate willing to vote anyone who symbolized change. AAP was lucky to be contesting in the right state at the right time.

AAP has turned the idea of governance into a daily soap opera. Emboldened by the non stop media praise and the hubris of Delhi success, Kejriwal and his loonies have unleashed a string of theatrics that seem lifted straight from a B-grade movie. Almost all their actions seem tailored more for camera than for common man. Responsibility and accountability seem alien to AAP government. Decision making has been crowd sourced. The onus of fight against corruption has been transferred to common man with announcement of a lousy helpline number. Bereft of the vision and leadership needed for governance AAP is now looking for easy targets to experiment their version of mob justice. What is AAP trying to prove by targeting Ugandan women or going on dharna demanding suspension of police officials. The obvious aim is to divert public attention from their failures and controversies. The only success AAP boast of is benefiting from crisis. The current dharna demanding suspension of police officials is aimed at provoking action which can be exploited by the party. A police action will allow Kejriwal to claim victimhood while acceptance of his demands will allow him a political coup. With January 26th celebrations round the corner, not doing anything is not an option for central government.

The story of AAP is fast turning into a story of U-turns. Mr kejriwal joined politics because he was convinced dharnas were not effective. Now after failing at governance, he’s gone back to dharnas on the pretext of demanding suspension of Delhi police officers. After announcing 50% reduction in electricity tarrifs, he has now announced that it is only under consideration. The only difference in AAP after government formation is that their immaturity has turned childish. Metro trips, Janata Durbar, Rakhi’s theatrics have only proven how hard it is for the former activists to govern. Views of AAP leaders on Kashmir, Maoists, reservations prove the monkey with a knife theory.

AAP is now entering a phase of desperation. Like a maverick running after get rich quick schemes, they’ve set their eyes on parliament elections now. The euphoria of Delhi success has died and the harsh reality of governance and accountability has dawned which they’re not used to. The story of AAP is not one of a revolution but a clever marketing triumph. They’ve successfully sold the idea of AAP without actually clarifying what they stand for. Just like a daily soap opera AAP is a party high on drama and low on substance. Mr. Kejriwal may have attained power with the aam aadmi rhetoric but to think the rhetoric will propel him to PM’s post is overstretching his imagination.The money that we’re donating is not actually being spent on the dreams AAP is selling but on funding dreams of few closet communists who have scant regard for the country and its constitution. Its high time we stop donating to AAP. Stop funding the anarchists.

  • Harish

    Kejriwal is behaving like the “Laloo” of Delhi. He and his gang of ministers are bringing “jungle-raj” to Delhi.

  • Ishita

    Kejriwal is fast losing his credibility and support. It very clear as only losers play the blame game they blame all the damn things& I mean all. That is exactly what AK is doing. If he has even 1% leadership skill he should inspire people to get motivated and that will reflect in their behavior. This the only way to run a government. Sacking is no reality. Why should the people who has not done wrong be punished. I mean the family of sacked person. Change their attitude if you think they are not performing. give them time. This year best actor, comedian and villain awards are been already reserved for AK. Height of stupidity arrogance and ignorance also goes to AK and AAP

  • parag dikshit

    You cannot straighten out dog’s tail and the AAP is back to its old ways of causing disruptions, something they are good at it! We are going nowhere with AAP at the helm. Their uncertain
    policies accompanied by inept conduct lacking in maturity spells disaster for India and Delhi in particular.

  • Arijit

    Nautanki ….. Better he first sack Somnath bharti and show that he stands for what is correct. A woman is publicly insulted at night time that was right… if sex racket is running kejriwal should have discussed with Commissioner and post it if police does not act then he should have escalated matter … but here it seems ego issue, since why police does not listen Law minister… if tomorrow law minister ask police to go search any house and detain any woman without woman constable then they should do it…… Brilliant democracy by Kejriwal

  • balu

    Kejriwal who is supposed to take care of delhi, is breaking law and inviting people to break law…that too just few days ahead of Republic day…

  • gochange india

    Anarchy is when the Parliament agrees to pass a bill shielding Criminals
    Anarchy is when the scams in India go unpunished and a CBI report to the SC is fudged by PMO
    Anarychy is when the Delhi police is not responsible to anyone which is what Congress wants.
    Anarchy is when poor farmers have to comit sucide in India
    Anarchy is when you have to bribe to get water, admission, electricity ande even your pension
    Anarchy is when honest people like Kemka and Durga Shakti are punished to do honest work.

    If any one thinks India is not in anarchy already… please smell the coffee.

    AAP is the only solution to save India

    • Ragu

      Anarchy is when AK said he has 350 pages of evidence to prosecute former Delhi Chief minister Sheila Dikshit.

      • Guest

        Anarchy is elected representatives breaking law
        Anarchy is anti social elements getting into political main stream
        Anarchy is taking U turns on every single statement
        Anarchy is following a bunch of confused and arrogant idiots and getting ruled by them.
        Agreed we need to tackle corruption. But after that? We need good administrator who is also a great leader. Sadly Arvind Kejriwal is neither of them. Beyond freebies he has not really been the change that he promised.
        Do not comeback with a comparison with other political parties. We are talking only about AAP here and you should only answer to these points.

    • max

      mahatma ji, khemka was transferred every 3 months as an ias. How many times sant kejriwal was transferred in IRS service of 15 yrs?

  • Benjamin Mark

    AK is no wrong. He is fighting for the people. No one else dares to understand. All national parties think in diplomatic ways, which they’ve been doing it for last 60 years. Wake up India tandem stand for the right. This method may look immature, but let’s do it. Will change soon. Having polished talks have only wrought the current status in 60 years. All mocked Gandhi when all were beaten to death in freedom fight. Let’s support AK and give lives to stop corruption.

    • AnotherIndian

      Mr Benjamin,
      You may not have read or understood the world history but major people who are against this dharna know that this is just political gimmick… Let me tell you why I feel so, first, see countries in middle east, the govt have come to this position like in Egypt because of this… Democracy may be slow but still it will only work… I dont want my country to turn into Egypt or USSR.. like the external forces want… may be you want so it fine for you….
      10 days dharna would cost govt hell lot of money, next just imagine how people will go to office… you need find mature way to work in Democracy not like this….
      so much discomfort to the people.. Last but not the least why cannot your AK tell his law minister to resign first if he wants the post to be suspended then his law minister should also be suspended.. because he is law minister… earlier they told I am aam admi so now you want power.. just see his words, who is HM to tell CM all this things … he is not PM, in our country HM is having more powers than a CM… how stupid of him…. he is so arrogant… If u want only Delhi police to come into delhi govt, why did not you take the same argument when sheila told.. and why did not go for dharna before….. then you came to politics telling dharna is not working .. now you do the same thing…. how could u promise women commandos without even knowing that it is not possible.. .Please check their election manifesto … if you are true Indian citizen then you would have advised your party not us…

    • Happy

      Don’t bat your horses on AK you will lose. He is lousy activist and anarchist not politician. He cannot fight corruption since it is not his cup of tea. Wake up form your dream to see reality.

  • aasare

    AAP = KHAP and their value systems didnt change overnight, it was the media that propped them up and it will be the media which will bring them down. Its amazing how they were feted when they did sms poll on whether they should form the govt. Not one journo asked if this is called leadersip, if yes then y we cant apply the same mechanism for so many burning issues in this country? These people want to rule the country without even spelling out their views on major issues, disgusting. Delhi public deserve a big thanks for supporting them to an extent where aap has exposed itself and saved rest of the country

  • Dharmo Crat

    AAP is no doubt the most dangerous, destabilizing and disruptive political force to emerge in independent India. If it gains power then it will seriously imperil the unity and integrity of India. Statements made by its top leadership have indicated that they view India not as a country but as an imperial construct imposed on disparate peoples. The repeated refrain of referendum this and referendum that is a manifestation of this fissiparous and centrifugal dynamism at work behind them. Simply put, democracy in their view is the right to self-determination, and thus, separation and ultimately disintegration of the artificial unity of India. This is a very old Marxist dream that followers of that toxic ideology have always tried to realize since the days of the British Raj. But thankfully there is no possibility of AAP emerging as the top dog in an electoral contest. However, its short-term purpose, the goal towards which it has consciously directed itself, although not as terrible in its implications, spells really very bad days for India. In a nutshell it is to halt the Modi juggernaut and to return a hung parliament as the 2014 verdict. Now this it is very capable of doing. As Delhi has proved, a hung assembly is as good as no assembly, and it will allow radical recalculations and combinations that will throw up unlikely claimants to the Delhi throne. This is the chaos that precedes disintegration. The AAP must be stopped at all costs. Congress is an old dog set in its old tricks. The AAP is a rabid dog that means to put an end to India’s misery by “putting it out of its misery”.

    You guys (posters) are giving too much credit for AAP. Its a collection of bunch clueless, restless idiots making noise on TV Cameras. The corrupt clowns of media are propping them up and sabotaging a potentially decisive election coming up.
    The corrupt clowns of media will fail just as they failed in Gujarath not once but 3 times. Do not treat AAP clowns and media clowns as grown ups and have IQ more than 10.

    Dont loose focus. Namo 272+.
    Be aware of the clowns but dont loose focus.

    • Dharmo Crat

      Appreciate the sentiments and agree that main thrust must be to project Modi’s brilliance for all to see but the seemingly insignificant things can also trip us up. In trying to get majority Modi is figuratively trying to climb a mountain and his enemies are hoping that even a small pebble can send him, and along with him India, plunging. Therefore in helping Modi secure victory no stone or pebble must be left unturned. Whatever we may say, because of full backing by media and Congress backroom maneuvering AAP has been able to generate huge amount of hype. The danger is that this buzz, already viral, can dent Modi’s prospects if not damage them conclusively. A small germ can turn into a devastating plague if left unchecked. Let’s not make that mistake. Also note that when Modi entered the cross-hairs of the media and the Cong in Gujarat, he was already CM and nobody could stop him from proving himself. That is not the case in this battle.

  • Subash

    Kejriwal Bin Tuglak will not have any more success than original Tuglak in running Dilli durbar, never mind media clowns. Indian media, which is even more corrupt than Congress,(you may not believe it is possible for any entity in the world to be more corrupt than Congress. If media is not corrupt, Congress would have not been in power for so long). AAP will whither away in time starting in a week or two. Its honeymoon is already past peak. I cant see them getting more than low single digit i.e. <5%. May be at the most high single digit i.e. <10 seats in Parliament. It is filled with snake oil salesmen and people rejected by other parties most of whom cannot win on their own.
