AAP compromising clean politics for Arvind Kejriwal in Varanasi? ET

NEW DELHI: Has the numbers game finally taken over Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)'s professed claim to do clean politics? Jailed don Mukhtar Ansari's withdrawal from the Varanasi contest comes amidst indications that minority community leaders had expressed support for AAP and acted as a bridge to convince Ansari. The tacit support — that will make Varanasi a contest between BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and Kejriwal — comes at a time when ADR data suggests that 15% of the AAP's 200 candidates have criminal cases against them.

Asked about Ansari's decision to withdraw candidature from Varanasi, AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal who is contesting from the same seat told reporters in Amritsar, "Congress and BJP have to be removed from the country to corruption. And for this, all the forces must join hands." His statement fueled speculation that the party was willing to wink at the "tainted"background of Ansari- accused in cases of murder and rioting- to raise its stock among Muslims ahead of a contest whose outcome will have crucial consequences for rookie outfit's "secular"credentials

Mukhtar who gave a tough fight to BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi in Varanasi in 2009 Lok Sabha election, on Thursday announced that he will not to fight against Narendra Modi from the seat "to avoid division of "secular" votes.''

It is learnt that the community leaders had impressed upon him to consider the proposition. Earlier, Ansari's brother Afzal Ansari claimed that AAP representatives had approached him to seek a withdrawal, a proposal he rejected. When AAP denied this, Afzal Ansari claimed he had CCTV footage of his meeting five AAP representatives. When asked if the party had held talks or was looking for an alliance with Ansari, AAP spokesperson Nagendra Sharma denied this saying, "No AAP office-bearer has met or held talks with Ansari or Qaumi Ekta Dal.''

An Ansari-AAP understanding will affect the chances of Congress's candidate Ajay Rai.

AAP leaders have made several overtures towards the minority community to gain their confidence post the Delhi assembly elections. It has given 8%, about 37 of its 430 odd seats, to Muslim candidates (higher than BJP and Congress put together). "Kejriwal's direct challenge to Modi from Varanasi has also sent out a clear message to the community that AAP and not Congress was the party to challenge BJP,'' Sanjay Singh, AAP leader said.

The possibility of a Kejriwal- Ansari tie up coincided with a report of Association for Democratic Reforms sayng that 15% of 200 candidates of AAP have criminal charges while 10 have serious criminal charges pending against them. Ironically, party leaders had used ADR's data to "name and shame'' 70 legislators with heinous cases against them and in fact has made anti-corruption a poll issue both in the 2012 assembly and parliamentary election. However on Friday, , Singh dismissed this charge as "politically motivated.''

He said, "The cases that our candidates have against them are politically motivated. These candidates were charged when they spoke against authority or raised their voice against injustice." more

Interesting - DESERVE TO BE CIRCULATED WIDELY .

Recently, India's most
well-known film script-writer Salim Khan (actor Salmaan Khan's father)
has said to a senior journalist in an interview: "Does anyone remember
who the chief minister of Maharashtra was during the Mumbai riots
which were no less deadly than the Gujarat riots of 2002?

Does anyone recall the name of the chief minister of UP during
Malliana and Meerut riots or that of the Bihar CM when the Bhagalpur
or Jamshedpur riots under Congress regimes took place?

Do we hear names of earlier chief ministers of Gujarat under whose
charge, hundreds of riots took place in post-Independence India?

Does anyone remember who was in-charge of Delhi's security when
the 1984 massacre of Sikhs took place in the capital of India?

How come Narendra Modi has been singled out as the Devil Incarnate as
if he personally carried out all the killings during the
riots of 2002?"

No speck of doubt about what Salim Khan has said.

When one says Gujarat's agriculture growth is 10-11% since whole last decade
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says he made the Asia's biggest solar plant,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says Gujarat is the only state in the whole of India to
provide 24*7 and 365 days electricity to almost all of its 18,000
villages,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says - World Bank's statement of 2011 said, Gujarat roads are
equivalent to international standards,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says Gujarat is the first State in country to have "high
speed wireless Broadband service in its all 18,000 villages,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says Forbes Magazine rated Ahmadabad as the fastest
growing city in India and 3rd in the world,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says Gujarat Tourism is growing faster than ever before,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says according to central govt's Labour Bureau's report,
Gujarat has the lowest unemployment rate in country,
The other says 2002 Riots!

When Narendra Modi is being chosen as the best current Indian leader in
almost all surveys & polls again and again
The other says 2002 Riots!

When one says 2003-2013 are the only 10 straight years in Gujarat
history which are totally riot-free,
The other STILL says 2002 Riots!

But when we remind them about riots which occurred during Congress and
in Communist Party rule :

TIME TO RETHINK ON HOSPITALITY TO CITIZENS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES.


Pliant and docile media has bee lined to telecast SONIA address to nation on 14th April 14, the prerogative which hitherto-forewas the domain of PRESIDENT & PM of India . Look , the respect which this nation gives to foreigners in India . Can any person of Indian origin even dream of the same treatment in Europe or US , let alone the audacity to perform.

Can any one of us go to Europe or US and teach the citizens of those countries on NATIONALISM and lecture them on DIVISIVE forces and tell them that they are breaking their own country . We are told in our own country that we do not know HINUSTANIAT / BHARTIAYTA and we have to take lessons from SONIA on the subject . We are lectured that we are breaking this great country of ours which is dear to us more than our own selves . Foreigners can think of breaking this country since they have the option to migrate back to their native countries after the break up of India but where do we go after breaking our own motherland dearest of all things to us . These sermons are hurled on us by the citizens of countries who have no nationalism in their own native civilizations in the country of their origin . We understand that these countries are culturally so bankrupt that if you just place your hand bag on the ground , it disappears in no time . India, in the past has always played host to destitute foreigners who in turn ridiculed us and our ethos , hurled abuses on us ,belittled our civilization , demanded a pound of flesh from us , looted us , questioned our cultural liberalization , made every attempt to impose their culture and will on us . We on the other hand have been fighting amongst our selves to accept their hegemony , allow them to loot , allow them to rule by proxy , give them supermacy without calling for ,
& lick their heels .

TIME HAS COME FOR THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY TO RETHINK ON THEIR HOSPITALITY TO OTHER CIVILIZATIONS AND CITIZENS OR ELSE WE WILL REMAIN DROWNED IN POVERTY AND MISERY FOR EVER. more
