Why I Want AAP in the Opposition in Delhi Assembly

‘Opposition’ is no less tough task, but then there is a thin line of demarcation between wise opposition and unfounded opposition, something that our opposition parties in the Lok Sabha haven’t yet known, or should I not say, don’t want to realize owing to politics based on appeasement. Delhi elections are the talk of the town these days, with almost everyone saying that two honest-appearing chief ministerial candidates are fighting a very close battle for majority in the Vidhan Sabha. Let us then not take this event as yet another poll in one of the states of India, for this time the public movement for Jan Lokpal Bill is very much behind the political waves flowing in the state of Delhi. India against Corruption wasn’t a protest by any political or social group; the demonstration saw common men of India leaving their houses and offices for the sake of making India a better place, corruption-free and answerable to general public. All of us supported the mentor and his aides to the core, and as being one from the general public, we all wanted our rulers to realize the basis of democracy, ‘Of the people, For the people, and By the people’. Kiran Bedi and Arvind Kejriwal were the two notable figures of this campaign and were accepted as people’s leaders; one however hastily moved towards forming a party with political aims, the other waited for the suitable time to come.

Accept it; AAP has so far proven sheer lack of competence and dexterity in matters of governance, public accountability, decision-making, and standing firm at decisions once taken. Right from the beginning, with asking public whether or not to form a political party to asking again as to whether ally with the Congress to make government post last polls and then quitting from the job just on grounds that other political rivals aren’t letting them work effectively, AAP hasn’t ever displayed sense of apt administration. Dear Arvind, hindrances never leave your way, you need to be strong enough to tackle them, to demonstrate your guts. Indeed, you were slight better when you took over the responsibility of unearthing wrongs of the political leaders, though at that very time too, you severely lacked the aptitude to take forward this crusade and let the public realize that they elected inapt representatives in the past; proper channels for filing grievances were never followed, nor did you ever appeared focused on taking the battle till the end. In the initial days, most of us were enthusiastic to have a political party that carried the name of the ‘Aam Aadmi’, but you could not deliver in the manner that this passion could have last for long. What was the basis when referendum in Kashmir or appeasement of minority became AAP’s agenda? This remembered us how the coalition of various political groups in the 70s uprooted the Congress’ rule, but later took the nation into escalated levels of scarceness.

For the AAP, this is time not to aim for big and lavish, but to remain attached to the roots and learn that bit which they haven’t until now, ‘Governance’. The voters of India and their families want more than just allegations, defamations and protests; they want a society where every child enjoys equitable access to quality education, where a youth is able to find dignified work prospects, where a common household is not suppressed by goons, where development is continuous, and where living is a pleasure. Would you be able to cater to all these needs of the voters of Delhi if majority comes your way? Each and every voter realizes the fact; it is just that some of us are still in the grip of politics of vote-bank and obliteration. Still, the acclaimed integrity of Arvind Kejriwal cannot be completely denied and for sure we never want our rulers to think that they can relish perpetual ruling even if governance isn’t in favor of Indians. This calls for a strong and candid opposition party in the Delhi legislative assembly, and in the present scenario where Congress has proven inefficient in the Lok Sabha; AAP becomes an ideal choice. But here again, AAP would need to overcome the syndrome of interrupting the works of rulers even when they are in consensus with public needs. Best is to support pluses and retaliate any ineffective measures by substantial facts.

When AAP appears worthy in the opposition so that they can hit the books with respect to leadership, governance and decision-making, BJP seems to be the most deserving contender for ruling the Delhi for next five years. Labors of the present Prime Minister are in the very knowledge of the public and certainly deserve to be rewarded. And for those who say that Delhi is to be run by the CM of the state not the PM of India, Kiran Bedi’s bio-data is what they need to refer to. Moreover, India has a dual polity system, where states and center work in coalition with one another; no one can survive for long in isolation. This is why AAP doesn’t at all deserve Delhi’s governance, at least for the time being. Delhi is the epicenter of this country, a nation home to diverse cultures and castes, nation that has seen immense downfall in social, economic, environmental and political setup all during past many years. The country, hence, calls for brains, that can vigilantly handle the tough tasks of rationalizing subsidies, can make us technologically-rich, can provide apt skill development mechanism, and can improve our lives. We can expect that these changes would come sooner than later post many crucial changes, as mentioned hereunder, having already knocked the door.

Record drop in food inflation, diesel and petrol prices and acceptance of India as the most preferred investment location globally, all thanks to the ‘Make in India’ drive of the Prime Minister, are only a few widely acknowledged. The list is long and promising. Improvement in the attendance and working hours of government officials, schemes like Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana for the financial inclusion of the poor with RuPay debit card and accidental insurance, Swachh Bharat Kosh, Direct Benefit Transfer, Varishtha Pension Bima Yojana and Kisan Vikas Patra, productive amendments to the worn out legislations, initiation of railways and education restructuring, and digitization of many government departments resulting in curbing of red tape and corruption have all been delivered in the initial few months of BJP’s ruling. The recent dismissal of Home Secretary for interfering in CBI’s probe in the Saradha scandal case is evidence that BJP’s stand on unbiased working of the CBI is loyal. Plus, green nod to as many as 190 projects worth INR 6.31 lakh crore by the environment ministry during June-December 2014 in itself is a revolutionary measure that would boost the economy besides adding to employment prospects.

All in all, you would agree that governance is easier said than done, a difference which can be seen in the political and working philosophy of BJP and not-so-mature AAP. Delhi is to be handed over to safe and strong hands, which can aptly bear the heat and pressure of administration, never-ending political rivalries and at the same time can meet the judicious demands of general public. Am I so mistaken in saying that I can see an impeccable legislative assembly in the state of Delhi with BJP as the governing party and AAP as a wise opposition, though AAP will need effective revamping for the same? For the BJP as well and the nation too, it would be good if a political party can stand BJP’s competition, since being the only contender in the game assures the win.

“If you want to manage somebody, manage yourself. Do this well, and you’ll be ready to stop managing and start leading.”

    This article unearths that BJP is having a tough time dealing with AAP in Delhi.
    You have made some valid points in favour of BJP but mentioning that
    AAP does not have any skill to run the state of Delhi is not right.
    Lets be unbiased and say both are competing well.

    As far as I Believe, BJP is the most trustworthy party in the current scenario.
    They have many leaders who can be delegated multiple responsibilities.
    AAP has only one face. After Kejriwal,
    what do you think Prashant Bhushan or Kumar Vishwas can become a CM?

    Why not give AAP another chance with a majority and then see if they can do some good to the state.
    Previously they were supported and could not take tough decisions,
    but this time I think they will win the mandate and prove their ability.

    Kiran Bedi is the first choice for CM in Delhi.
    Only particular vote banks will vote for AAP which also happened in Varanasi.
    Now Kejriwal is saying that Bedi ji is not in the right group.

    I definitely agree with the points raised by the author.
    Maturity is lacking in Arvind Kejriwal which makes him incapable for the office of CM.
    Kiran Bedi is an experienced candidate and she knows Delhi from the roots.
    She is the optimum choice for CM.

    It is true that if Kejriwal forms government in Delhi he will stop Modi Ji from doing work.
    This is why we should wait for the right time to support Aam Aadmi Party.
    First let them learn the act of governing people.
    He can become CM after 10 years.

    Anyone wins or loses, one thing is clear that Indians have started rewarding talent.
    There is a tough fight between AAP and BJP which is very good because both parties have good CM candidate.
    At least this is better than congress or JDU or Mamta Ji.

    How can you say that AAP has no leaders other than Kejriwal ji.
    No body has tested them just like we never tested Modi as PM.
    Giving them a chance is what we call a democratic set up.
    BJP and Congress never want other parties to rise in India.

    Very defensive recommendations. Some years back, we heard some experts explaining Why only Congress can rule the country. The recommendations are in similar tune. Every political class can have its own pitfalls. The ruling party in center will also surely have. Wide geography and demography of country demands strong leaderships with apt knowledge of the respective states and the developmental requirements. Thus, parties don’t matter, Leaders with strong organisation do. Leveraging one central leader for entire country is a damaging equation.

    A correct analysis and lucid arguments for AAP to wait its turn. The party came a cropper when fortune smiled indulgently on it with 28 seats, but Kejriwal misread the signs completely and, with his ambition equaling his incompetence, not only abandoned his CM’s post and deserted, but foolishly aimed for the entire country with his overreach of 400 plus candidates of whom only 4 scraped through. He compounded the blunder by tilting at the windmills a la Don Quixote in Varanasi and bit the dust humiliatingly, having overconfidently predicted that Modi will lose to him. He squandered his resources and his opportunities and showed himself as a very poor planner, administrator and strategy deviser. A long spell in the opposition is what is good for him and his party. At the moment he is totally incapable of properly administering even his own party, to say nothing of Delhi with its massive problems and demands.

    “Known Devil is better than Unknown Angel”. Goes the saying.!!. Already Delhi People have tasted Mr. Kejriwal for 49 days last year with Street Dharnas, Climbing Electric Poles, etc..Now since Ms. Kiran Bedi is CM candidate , Keeping her Honesty and Track record , the Delhi People should give her a chance, instead of talking on Mr. Modi and Mr. Amit Shah

    yes some of the point in the article are absolutely right. delhi is a capital of india. and it’s bad effect fall on the country. in delhi election BJP and AAP is fight with each other for majority. some BJP AAP businessman are pressurise their employee to caste their vote to them. but one think both forget that this is democratic country and freedom of speech and movement not stop by any political. BOTH ARE MUCH HONEST THEN CONGRESS. BOTH SAY OTHER’S ARE CHOR I AM HONEST. BUT JUST LOOK WHAT THEY HAVE DONE IN DELHI ELECTION. ONE IS TOTALY WASTE OF MONEY TO HELD ANOTHER ELECTION FOR ONE YEAR. I DON’T KNOW WHY NOT PEOPLE REJECT THEM. JUST HOW MUCH MONEY THEY INVEST TO WIN THE ELELCTION. THEY HAVE NO SHAME. WHOSE FAULT IT IS bjp say other’s are goons corrupt, criminal what they have. they have so many criminal corrupt person in their own party. I don’t know in india their is so many chamcha people we have.
