The AAP Honeymoon Tamasha...

The NDTV brigade in total connivance with congress are propping up AAP with coverage the likes of which are never before seen for a corporation government in India. I am sorry, without being full fledged state with critical functions like law and order and even infrastructure for the large part, this government is akin to Hyderabad Municipal corporation government. But somehow, by finishing a distant second to BJP, this party has supposedly captured all of India and we are all set for good times... This is the portrayal of the media and even some well intentioned educated folks are falling for this.

The leadership of the AAP owe their orgins to the extremely left leaning NAC of the Italian. If you look at their economic ideology that alone should be enough to stop anyone dead on their tracks and revisit the decision to support. They are so far left of the Congress that the Italian will appear like some right wing nut when it comes to economic policies.

  • Their promises and deception: Their whole campaign was based on the premise that “We are the only clean ones on the planet, practice completely unbiased politics focused on the common man”. After we get a clean mandate, we will fix everything, prosecute all the corrupt by dusting up all corruption complaints against all, we will give free water, eliminate corruption in electricity distribution and halve the rates to take some famous examples... Let us look at them one by one. First, the basic premise that we practice clean politics and will not take the support of anyone, was demolished when they took congress’ support (the one the called the most corrupt ever in their campaigns).
  • Clean Politics: During election itself Kejriwal fell at the feet of a maulana who is a fatwa king and has issued 5 lakh bounty for the killing of Taslima. Guess what, he is a maulana in UP, why would Kejriwal fall at his feet for Delhi elections ? This is the same vote bank politics of congress, that he declared that he will not do. Now after elections, realizing his AAP has formed an exclusive task force to win the trust (== vote) of muslims.. Is this cleanliness in politics ?
  • Water supply: The promise was for 700L/day free supply to all. Now, the implementation comes in. They suddenly decided that 660L water per day will remain unbilled, but if you exceed that even by a litre over a month then you will have to pay for it all. This was cleverly done as most of delhi’s metered users consume way above this limit !!! But, this is projected as “Promise delivered” by the lapdogs in the NDTV brigade.
  • Electricity Rates reduction by half: Right now, in states with relatively corruption free distribution of power like gujarat and Chattisgarh (mind you chattisgarh with its vast natural resources produces some of the cheapest electricity in India) the purchasing rate of electricity itself is well above the half rate that these folks promised, so how do you deliver on that promise, well introduce the budget subsidy. A throwback to the license raj, even after 60 years we still haven’t gotten the cooking gas subsidy rightly delivered and this will only add to that profligacy. Hey, “Promise delivered”.
  • Prosecute Shelia Dixit: Haven’t we heard the messiah himself say that once he is in power, in days she would be in jail, how he has hundreds of files detailing her corruption, when asked by opposition for that, he actually responds if you have evidence then hand it over to me, I will act. Shouldn’t he just get a CD of AAP’s speeches and manifesto you would think that should suffice isn’t it ? Yet, without asking all this you guessed it “Promise delivered”.
  • Will prosecute all the corrupt: Well, instead of dusting off all complaints of corruption, which he himself claimed in the campaign that hundreds of thousands were pending, he now has setup a corruption hotline, asking people to gather and provide evidence and he will help them do it... If you watched the media all the problems were solved by it, and probably you are all left with the impression that this is for the first time this has happened in India.. Do you know Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Goa, Sikkim and even Karnataka have had this for decades ?

Please folks, sit down and think rationally, as to what is the bigger threat to India’s unity/integrity/governance. The near unanimous answer for that should be the Italian, whose party’s shameless religious appeasement, ruinous state controlled economic policies, indulging terrorists through go soft tactics on terror and now outright loot of the nation.

We have already seen the alternative, Vajpayee who ran a bigger coalition, put in place and got approval for building and modernizing 50+ airports, tripled the highway capacity in the nation and ensured strategies for growth, which the upa shamelessly mis-appropriated in the first 5 years and we all know what they were doing in the first 5 years under the stewardship of MMS and the Italian.

If you still decide to vote for AAP, it is your democratic right, but please insist that they live up to the principles that they themselves campaigned for.

Remember, a broom by itself doesn’t do anything it is the hand that actually directs it to clean. This AAP broom is now firmly in the Italian’s hand.... At least, free it folks...

We may never get this opportunity to get rid of congress again, so vote carefully that is my appeal to all..
