Why AAP failed to get people’s support?

Okay this is a late post in the series, so what?

#AAP lost the elections on most of the seats they contested for, they got 4 of their candidates in Loksabha which is a great news but people thought they are going to be in double digits atleast(being pessimist). Then what exactly went wrong.

It is not people like me who stopped supporting AAP were the reason why AAP failed, it was their supporters who argued in their favor even when they were wrong and in fact an absolute measure of wrong.

Well first thing first,  the party wasn’t ready to compete in the Lok Sabha elections. It didn’t have the necessary reputation among most of the Indian masses to make a big impact in the final analysis. This was, in my humble opinion, a case of jumping the gun. The Aam Aadmi Party was crying from the rooftops that they were prevented from passing the Lokpal Bill in the Delhi Assembly. But guess what, people do not want to hear Delhi’s story they want to know what you have to offer.

The specter of Aam Aadmi Party’s ill-fated 49-day government in Delhi was always going to hang over their head. It was the job of Arvind Kejriwal and his think tanks to show people that they were right in resigning prematurely. The party campaign instead focused solely on the opposition candidates, most of all on Modi, and we all know how this strategy works out (Think 2004). The tag of escapist which they got stuck to them and took them down in this Lok Sabha.

Another important aspect of being established as a party are the supporters. It is their job to convey the message, values for which party stands but instead they were busy fighting everyone they could find who was speaking against their messiah Arvind Kejriwal. Mr. Kejriwal is just a human being so he has all the rights to be wrong. It is supporter’s job to make his stand clear, but they were too busy maligning oppositions that they could not even make Mr. Kejriwal look good.

Also, during their government, Arvind Kejriwal took up protest against central government and conducted mohalla sabha for taking decisions for the country.

When people go vote for you, they hope you’re gona govern them with right understanding and judgement. Its your skill they trusted. Your coming back to them for every decision is childish and many people took it as sign of incompetence.

The expectations were never set properly. Goals were never clear and the execution (to spread too thin with very limited resources) was flawed as well. It was never going to yield anything satisfactory. They put all their energy in bringing down the opposition and did not focus on their rise. They often told what would happen if Modi/Gandhi come to power but they forgot to tell what would happen if they come to power.

The things are yet not over forever, they still can be the answer to several political setback questions. Remember there is no permanent crisis in politics and AAP is just in their beginning phase. They can reach to a place where they can bring the fix they say and can change India for good as they promise. But that road is rocky and I do not know if they will resign again in middle or not? Though I do not want them to.

Hitting AK was wrong and still is, even though you do not like him

It makes me feel sad beyond words. 

Though I do not like AK, I believe if he gets good number of seats he will go and sit in the lap of Mother Gandhi and get Congress back in power. But the fact still remains the fact that he is a man who is challenging a big power or at least is portrayed as one who is challenging a big power.

What makes me feel sad?

India is a free country and here people have right to express, we do not slap people when they are found guilty for 100s od crores of scams so why slap AK for whatever he says or thinks. 

There are politicians, lobbyists who have serious corruption charges against them and they visit people forget slapping nobody even raises a slogan against them. Now they do not like someone and they know they can get away even if they slap him, people got on to it without wasting any time.

Nobody even media dares to speak a word against Robert Vadra, everyone has stopped talking about CWG, Coal Gate even Arvind Kejriwal has. But no one will dare to slap Vadra or Digvijay, we all know Rahul Gandhi is a fool but we are not going to throw ink or stones on him because that will screw the ones whoare involved.

Why it is happening?

It is happening just because AK can’t do anything about these people, he can’t get them killed, he can’t put them behind bars even if these people go they will be out after sometime. So it makes people think “let us hit AK by all mean” and other politicians can do any-goddamn-thing so “let us not touch them”.

Why is it wrong?

It is wrong because it shows our lack of respect to fellow people and our rigidness to accept fact that someone is going to contest against our leader. Let him contest!! I know he will lose and if he wins it is his good work which got him the victory.

I know you like to protest so convert people against his ideas and not him. Vote against him, but no one has right to hit him. It is wrong on so many levels, first lack of respect, it shows that how badly we stand against who are new in system, it tells how we are discriminating a new structure in politics.


Conclusion

He might be anarchist and he totally can’t bloody keep his promises, he can’t even stick to what he says but that does not call for physical assault on anyone. You do not like him, do not vote for him. That is the way to show your anger. Hitting/slapping/throwing stones is not the way. I condemn it all the way.  For heaven’s sake have some respect for democracy!!

The USP of AAP and never ending self-proclamation of self-rightrousness

Stop seeing AAP as a big movement of Change. Anything they do or  say is evaluated on the measures of right and wrong which is unfair to these folks. I understand they entered politics saying they will maintain equality, fight for and with common man, fight election to bring equality and won’t favor people coming from means.

However looking at the lists they published for election, the promises made doesn’t seem to be in place anymore. But there is a twist in situation pre-election they were a movement and now they are Political Party. They need money, famous faces to fight and win elections and since victory is these people are fighting so these things are going to happen.  And also they can’t stop iterating there pre-election agenda as that is USP of AAP.

So it is Junta who needs to decide what they want to believe. Trusting people blindly won’t lead to any good. Their promises and vision contradict their actions. Once Politician of the year” could not answer Rahul Kanwal’s answer to question of Somnath Bharti’s involvement in Internet Scam, charge’s on Character of his once cabinet minister[Watch Video]

It’s  a shame how a movement turns into a disaster, people who once wanted change in system, change themselves. Calling everyone else a thug or thief or liar and yourself the pinnacle of Honesty does not prove that you are.

They fly to Mumbai in planes and then take Auto and pack Auto-rickshaws with 4, when law says 3, does not prove you AAM AADMI but again that’s USP to fight election and they being a National Party can’t run away from doing this drama. But the only thing that I feel disgusted about is when every time they say they are different from other mainstream Political parties.

AAP: Some Drama, A lot of trash talks, hate and anger speech! People of Delhi trolled!

Alright what just happened today!!
Can someone make me understand that what does it mean to protest for getting paid leaves for Govt. officials? And moreover how is it a victory for the people of Delhi? Two days of chaos and a lot of bullshitting for nothing.

 

Mr. CM was not winning enough so this Dark Knight style Chaos was necessary. And in last couple of days there was some other news around country and problems of people in TV Media and news houses which meant Mr. Kejriwal was not winning. Also he wanted whole state of Delhi to be winning so he took everyone in this journey with him. 
So now when two police men out of five who were blamed for misconduct and whose suspension was demanded are finally going on paid vacation, it is some kind of winning for Delhi’s people. Good Job Mr Kejriwal!!

Ppl advising media to stop covering AAP dharna are tweeting about it for last 24 hours..LOLAMLOL : mehranzaidi 

And more media means more coverage, more popularity and more Winning. Hence the Focus Hungry people start some chaotic movement, block the road, speak ill of Delhi Police, Govt.(well this one was justified) talk of spitting on face of senior leader of opposition to get some more of it. Good Shit Boys!! Now you have done this people are not talking about your racist act and they are talking about this sheer stupidity that happened in last two days.

Well in order to hide a big Sin do a couple of smaller and stupid ones and Voila, the real and ugly Sin is gone. Some nice bollywood kinda deal mates. You have brought some change Folks and Delhi will not be same after today. Just like the way it should be, isn’t it?

The Racist and Unlawful Law Minister: A disgrace

Racism by definition means, “the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races”. Indians have always criticized other countries for their racial behavior towards us. We say racism in any form is not acceptable and yes that stands true, any day.

Now there happened an incident of which I am very ashamed. A minister of Delhi that too of law, attempted raid on African nationals in Khidki village. These Ugandan and Nigerian women were allegedly dealing in Prostitution and drug use. Which are against law, so kudos to our minister for his act.

But what happened next was shameful, He(Law Minister) demanded police conduct medical tests on foreign nationals and even search a house, without a warrant, which some locals believed was a den of vice. He rebuked a police officer for refusing to act without following due process. Later it was reported that there was no intoxicant use. The tests ruled out consumption of any psychotropic substances.

On Friday morning, the women approached the police with separate complaints against unnamed AAP volunteers and sought police protection. The victims (foreign women) alleged that they were beaten by the men and were made urinate in front of public. If they needed urine sample for test it could have been done in a li’l private or at least in presence of women police only and not in front of whole audience. They disgraced the Gender their Party promised protection and security before coming in Political Power and forming Government.

I understand that these women might have been involved in some unlawful activities but that does not allow inhuman behavior towards them. Two negatives does not always make a positive.

There was a Gang Rape in our CM’s legislative election area and now one of his cabinet minister doing this, was this the same party we wanted so badly to come in power? Are they fulfilling their purpose?

Moreover, what is really bugging is Mr. CM coming to National Television and saying their party is not Racist and no one should be embarrassed for our law minister’s UNLAWFUL and INHUMAN act. Well I half agree Sir, that making raid is absolutely fine but rest I sincerely doubt.

And also if anyone wants to search the place where you live Mr. CM, be it your Minister or President of the Nation you love, I do not think you will allow considering the person you are. [Rudeness Intended]

I am ashamed that at any point I supported you or your party, Mr. CM. #QuitAAP

AAP condemned for racist action
Xenophobia, Racism and Vigilantism – Danger Signals for AAP
AAP is not racist, says Kejriwal

AAP: Betrayal! Allegations! Reality!

Yesterday, 16-01-2014, was quite an odd day for Delhi. Well in the terms of politics. Two important events happened:
·        Mr. Binny raising allegations on AAP
·        AAP rejecting all the allegations raised by Mr. Binny

For the first event people started saying that this happened because Mr. Binny is pissed off about not getting a position in Delhi’s govt, which is kind of true. But let’s take a look at some of the allegations which others (People) are concerned about too.

He said, “You (Mr. Kejriwal) have done a lot of agitation against the Congress and the BJP. Now you have to explain and show the people how your thought is different from theirs.” Now this one really bugs me as well, before coming to power Mr. Kejriwal used to say that he has a bag full of proofs against Ms. Sheila, Robert Vadra and many more. And now he is CM of Delhi, yet he says nothing. Why?

“There is a difference between what AAP says and does. Whatever AAP promised is not what they are implementing,” Now see I understand some will say that AAP gave 20000L water after coming in power and cut down electricity rates, but wait the way they are giving 20000L water is not how they promised in their manifesto or is it? I am talking about policy not quantity. “I appeal to the media to conduct a referendum and find out what people have to say about power and water. As against what we promised, none of the power bills have been waived off. We never said in any of our meetings that anybody using more than 700 liters will pay for entire consumption. This was introduced in the manifesto, but it hardly reaches 2% of the people.”

And as far as electricity is concerned they are giving subsidy and that too for a limited period. Why subsidy and why for a limited period, which is strategically given out to have a termination date around post election. It is just a doubt and I need to know, why?

Again everyone wants to know for everything that Ms. Sheila’s government did you used to say they are wasting Junta’s (People’s) hard earned money but Mr. Kejriwal, you are also giving subsidy from money that belongs to state and was earned by last government. You keep asking time for starting probe in corruption cases in CWG and others but you did not ask any to make strategy for reducing rates instead in no time you went for subsidy. Why?

Another question raised by Mr. Binny was “Kejriwal promised janlokpal within 15 days of coming to power. What happened to it? AAP had also promised a commando force for women’s safety. It has not even been initiated.” Now all of us are eagerly waiting for CM and other ministers to come under purview of an authority as strong as Lokpal and you, Mr. Kejriwal, too were of the same view what changed and how? By the way it has gone beyond 15 days since AAP came to power. Well you said what not about rapes that happen in the country but this time a Gang Rape happened in your own constituency and yet we are waiting to see your “promised commando force for women’s safety”.

After first event, AAP’s Mr. Yogendra Yadav came out and rejected all the allegations; called him BJP’s puppet and said disciplinary action would be initiated against him.

Dear Yogendra Yadav, you say probe against corrupt minister will happen only when you find enough proof; had it been pre-election time your Party Head would have gone to Anshan for any of these things and here we have someone speaking against AAP and a quick action shall be taken against him. What a piece of Justice, Sir!!

I have some other concerns since they are thinking of taking Loksabha elections. What is AAP’s take on border security, budget deficit? What is their take on AFSPA? How do they want to deal with current state of reservation? What is their economic strategy in times where GDP is going down? But I do not think even they know the answers.

People had high hopes in AAP but now it seems it all was a big troll. It was just a way to keep people thinking that change is coming to political system; to keep them busy with 20000L water and electricity cost debates so they do not talk about issues like Corruption, Rapes, Development and other important aspects.

Mr. Kejriwal doing protests, being radical is one thing and running a government and keeping promises once you get there is another or is it all about just being on camera.

AAP: Hues and Cry! Blames! Distrust! and Disgust!

India is a democracy and this so-called fact has been abused so much that it’s magnitude is unimaginable. In a democracy everyone has a right to say what one wants and this has led to a Politics of accusations, blames and condemnation of others. Congress says it’s BJP’s fault that country is facing so many challenges and BJP blames it on Congress.

People got fed up of this sort of disgust, so they looked up to a new alternative AAP. They came as a revolution with promises to eradicate corruption, make Aam Aadmi’s (Common Man’s) life easier and serve the nation for a better future. But look what they are turning into, Mr. Kejriwal is seeking Modi and Rahul’s views.

Kejriwal dodges question on AAP’s stand, seeks Modi & Rahul’s views – Video | The Times of India

I am fine with Modi but Rahul Gandhi, now that is some low Mr. Arvind has hit. But that is not the disgusting part, the saddening thing is they are doing what rest of the political parties had been doing in the past. Have we learnt nothing in all these 66 years. Is it all about getting your Party in power? Is there nothing like some respect to an individual’s credentials?

Mr. Kejriwal you are an IITian, an ex Asst. Commissioner and now CM of a state yet you have not proved yourself as an administrative leader. Mr Modi has been proving himself as a strong administrator and a proficient leader for last 13 years since 2001. In July 2007, he became the longest-serving Chief Minister in Gujarat’s history when he had been in power for 2,063 days continuously.

I understand you just asked for his views but with this you start o involve yourself in the same genre of politicians which has been maligning this area since Independence. People have high hopes from you Sir and no one (who supports you or speak against you) wants you to let them down.

 

AAP: Victory! Distraction! Promises! And Fake-Hype!

It was a great day on which AAP scored 28 seats over Ruling party(8). It meant that people in Delhi are fed up of Corruption and malpractices of Ruling Party.
It is fed up of dirty politics played in the name of Bharat Nirman. It was the day of change in Indian Politics, a new face was introduced to the otherwise not-for-people democracy.

I loved their spirit to erupt corruption and give AAM AADMI what they need. Giving 20000L water and electricity for half the current prices is amazing. They are auditing the organizations and transferring Administrative officers and actively taking charge of their respective departments. Kudos to that!!

But now I am very depressed to see AAP members falling back on the front against probe on charges on CWG scams. The most disturbing thing was this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVKFYiK9F0M

Some months back while campaigning Mr. Arvind Kejriwal said he had a bag full of proofs against Ms. Sheila Dixit, former CM of  Delhi, but now it seems al has vanished or what? I understand that they need time to act on it but that does not call for saying “Let Dr. Harshvardhan bring proofs to him and he will start the probe.”

I supported him not for 20000L water a month or electricity at cheap prices. I am not getting these anyways because I don’t live in Delhi anyways. But now it seems all that was in vain. See my point is very straight free water and electricity for low rates is a govt.’s responsibility towards it’s people and not the aim of a nation. Good they did it so early in their Political Career start but why is media hyping it so much? Focus on the basic thing for which this party came into existence. Corruption!!

Why all of it has moved to only these two things and Kejriwal’s home. Come on for heaven’s sake it is Ok if he takes that CM residence and takes Innova, He is Chief Minister of a state and that too delhi, why so much anger on it? If you really wanna show rage show it on issues like being light on Corruption and how their supporters are getting bailed in the name of an alliance with ruling party.

What pisses me off even more is while not in power they used to say politicians sleep during Assembly sessions, now look at this photo below:

These faces looks familiar don’t they? We did use to share a lot of photos about ministers of Congress or BJP or BSP or SP, I guess these #AAP guys are no different or maybe this Vidhansabha/Sansad places are so comfortable that people fall asleep there.

I am not saying this is end of the world but they should start early so that when time comes for Lok Sabha Elections they have something to tell that this is what can be done in 6 months with being in government if one has will.

Let’s hope for the best keeping our fingers crossed!! Buck up AAP we are not going to let you get off the track.
