Yesterday I was at Jantar Mantar to listen to AAP in their dialogue with ” Aam Aadmi”. It was a huge gathering and people from all walks of life were present there. There Sikhs, Muslims, People with families and little kids eagerly waiting to hear Kejriwal and company. It was a wonderful sight. You have to give it to AAP that they have changed the meaning of elections in the country.
The speeches were full of how AAP turned out to be a ” wonder boy” who took on the biggies and defeated them. And rightly so as AAP has proved themselves. What was however disappointing was that the speeches were again full of anti-corruption ” Bhashan Baajee” and nothing else.
There is a little bit of angst in some of us who supported AAP that if re-elections were to happen then AAP may not even get the seats they got this time. The reason is simple. Only on the promise of abolishing corruption its difficult to gather people twice. It costs money and it costs time. Second more importantly both Congress and BJP will now take AAP as a worthy opponent and their dirty tricks departments will be put to work. There will be now series of sting operations, money, intimidations that will come from them. And remember common AAP members and leaders barring a few are from the same society that is corrupt and “Jugadoo ( opportunist ). And they can fall for the right temptation. And third, some of the AAP supporters are frustrated that why AAP is not forming the Government and wasting their mandate
So hear is straight from the mind and heart to Arvind Kejriwal.
Please take Congress support and form the Government. Implement the Janlokpal bill as soon as possible. Send a few big wigs to jail. Reduce power tariffs. Make life easy for Aam Aadmi in Delhi. None of this will make Congress or BJP happy. But dare them to pull your Government down. Because if they do then they will be exposed and in re-election all of us will come out again to vote you in power with full majority.
The worst thing to do at this moment will be to do nothing and resort to more anti Corruption “Bhashan Baaje” and hope that in re-election you will get majority. We are with you in this fight but our worry is that re-election will be damaging to AAP. So go ahead Kejriwal, you take risks, take this one too and make Delhi a better place to start with.
