5 things that Arvind Kejriwal can do to make life easy for Dilli wallahs

Free water and Electricity subsidy is okay but its time that the newly formed Delhi Government puts some serious work behinds its fight against corruption and for Aam Aadmi.

1) Make all processes computerised. For instance the root cause of corruption in the R.T.O offices in Delhi and all over India is that there are many forms that one has to manually fill and manually submit in the R.T.O office. That is when most of us succumb to the “Dalal” pressure when we see long queues of sweating brethren in dinghy R.T.O office. Why can’t the forms and fees be made online. Make it easy for people to do things honestly. And since we have a honest Government in Delhi this should be honestly and promptly done.

2) Put the trio of DDA, DJB and MCD in shape and make them fall in line: Take all corruption cases against DDA, MCD and DJB on a priority basis. Half of the corruption in Delhi stems from their offices. 

3) Investigate CWG scam : Our heads were held in shame when the CWG scam happened. A lot of people had put their own pocket ahead of the pride of the country. Now you are in power so do something about it. Let’s not miss this opportunity

4) Pass Janlokpal: 15 days have passed. So now is to the time to act on it.

5) Be well: Your coughing worries us a lot. Take care of your health. We want you to take care of Delhi. But you need to take care of yourself.

  1. Transferring Cancer ?

    Arvind Kejriwal’s order to transfer 800 officers of Delhi Jal Board to other departments , is like trying to cure cancer by transferring it from one part of the body to another part !

    At worst , these officers will end-up spreading their corrupt practices to those other departments

    At best , those other departments now will have , twice to thrice the number of tables to push the files around !

    Their current departmental efficiency / productivity of 10 % will further go down to 5 % !

    Perhaps , in the short term , Arvind had only this alternative to send out a message

    What should he do next ?

    Here is a suggestion :

    > Invite National Productivity Council to carry out TIME & MOTION studies
    and WORK-SAMPLING studies , to set STANDARD TIMES for all activities
    / processes

    > Get IIT -Delhi , to monitor the individual and departmental efficiencies
    ( Ratio of Actual Times / Standard times )

    > Publish findings on Delhi Government web site

    > Get IIM-A , to develop / install , a Performance Appraisal System based
    on ANNUAL OBJECTIVE SETTING exercise for each officer

    > Incorporate , elements of ” Self Appraisal ” / ” Superior Appraisal ” and
    ” Peer Appraisal ”

    > Serve ” Show Cause Notice ” to those officers whose productivity is less
    than 80 % of the standard in any quarter

    > In Service Rules incorporate a clause to terminate the service of a officer
    whose productivity falls below 50 % for two consecutive quarters

    Over the next 12 months , this exercise should be carried out for all the departments of Delhi government

    This is a pre-requisite to the introduction of Guaranteed Delivery of Services Bill


    Cancer cannot be cured by transferring it from one part of the body to another

    The affected part must be amputated !

  2. Thank you , Rajdeep Sirdesai !

    Thank you for conducting that brutal interview of Arvind Kejriwal , Saturday evening

    Normally , Arvind is a very reticent fellow

    But you managed to rattle him !

    But for your penetrating questions , Arvind would not have volunteered to reveal on his own , the following :


    – It is only for 28 colleges which are partially or fully funded by Delhi

    It is for ANY student ( from any state of India ) , who passes his / her
    10th standard from any Delhi school


    – Only 20KL per month is free

    Our goal is to ” Reduce Consumption / Conserve ”

    Hence it makes sense to charge those who continue to consume more
    than 20 KL .

    If they want FREE , they must cut back on consumption !

    Again it makes lot of Economic Sense , to give water free , only to
    those who have meters

    Lakhs of households will now get motivated to install meters !

    A very powerful incentive

    That will introduce ” Measurement of Resource ”


    – This is a physical problem of laying 150 Km of new pipe-lines /
    installation of pumps etc

    No one asked Congress government re this for 15 years !

    It is totally unfair to expect AAP to do this in 15 days !


    – This is what democracy is all about !

    We encourage ALL to speak their minds without fear / reservations

    Ideas must flow unhindered

    We believe in brain-storming , not in suppressing views !

    But ,

    PAC members / MLAs / Core Committee Members etc will need to toe the

    FINAL PARTY POSITION ( arrived after fierce internal debate / evaluation /
    consensus ) in public , irrespective of their personal views

    As far as millions of ORDINARY MEMBERS are concerned ( including Capt
    Gopinath / Mallika Sarabhai etc ) , they are at liberty to criticize even the

    We impose PARTY DISCIPLINE , only on office bearers

    And since Vinod Binny is our MLA , he is bound by this internal CODE OF

    He must leave the party , if he cannot comply


    – If Delhi police won’t act against drug mafia / sex racketeers , despite a
    pile of complaints from local citizens , then our ministers will come out on
    the streets , in support of the oppressed

    We will not hesitate to join their agitation / revolt against the corrupt !

    Even Mahatma Gandhi , had to break the unjust British Laws

    We will do the same

    If we cannot change the law with the support of our MLAs , then we will
    break it with the support of the suffering public

    Make no mistakes about it !


    – Another TV channel editor said , we are continuing ” Activism ”

    Still another TV anchor says , AAP failed to graduate to ” Governance ”

    Use any – and all – adjectives you can , to describe our behavior / actions

    We are not guided / governed by any ” Ideology ” ( Left / Right / Center )

    When we take any decision / action , we only apply ” Gandhi Guideline ” ,

    viz ; ” Will this help the poorest person ? ”


    – If they like , let them withdraw their ( unasked for ) support today

    Let there be re-elections

    People of Delhi will bring us back with 50 seats


    – I may , if Party asks me

    [ Arvind ,

    Whereas all the rest of your answers were most appropriate , this was
    the most disappointing !

    If you succumb to the ” wishes ” of your colleagues , not only the
    people of Delhi , but of entire India , will conclude that ,

    # You are an opportunist

    # You are after power

    # You cannot be trusted

    # You have betrayed them ]

    Once again , thank you Rajdeep ,

    But for your grilling , public would have continued to believe the canards being dished out by those pseudo – experts trying to drown out each other , on panel discussions / obsessions !
