Can AAP destabilise main political parties?

There’s little in common between Mayank Gandhi contesting from the Mumbai North West constituency, Medha Patkar from Mumbai North East, Meera Sanyal from Mumbai South, Vijay Pandhare in Nashik, Anjali Damania in Nagpur and Raghunathdada Patil in Hatkanangale. Recognised for their work in disparate fields, the common thread that binds them is the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) ticket they are contesting this election on.

This diversity is the nascent party’s strength as well as its shortcoming. The AAP in Maharashtra, spread largely in urban areas, is an amalgamation of different – even contradictory – interests and people. This is partly deliberate, to allow many voices and agendas under a single umbrella, as party ideologue Yogendra Yadav pointed out while in Mumbai, and partly unplanned as the party has had to accommodate an eclectic set of people within its fold given its trajectory of growth.

Still, there’s a preponderance of left-liberals and socialists with people such as Sanyal being the few exceptions. It leads to interesting exchanges in the party’s suburban office; businesswoman and AAP back- office lead Preeti Shar ma Menon’s conversations with veteran socialist Gajananbhau Khatu are a headon clash of world views. “But we are learning by the day and are creating something,” she says.

Let’s call that something a political churn. This, in a nutshell, would be the AAP’s major contribution to the polity where it has candidates. It has so far fielded 39 candidates for the 48 constituencies in the state. Where the AAP has a strong candidate, he/she has been able to set an agenda in that constituency and alter the political discourse there to that of the average citizen. Patkar, for example, says she is now raising the issues that she always was as a social activist. “Now there is an urgency and perhaps some media attention,” she says wryly more  

AAP cannot destabilise the political parties. AAP shall contribute to rethinking on the rights of the citizen, ensure good governance, reduce corruption and bring light into darkness of suffering. more

IF CB BHAVE IS KNOWN FOR AS BELOW, HE SHOULD BE FORCED TO JOIN AAP & SUPPORTED! "I have known CB Bhave for a long time and I can say that you can not find a more upright person. He is a person who walks straight as a straight line. He is person of high integrity. People can see who is straight and who is not. If such people are being harassed, it is a disgrace on our system. Why would someone take any decision if a fear is instilled that he or she could be subjected to such agony years later." Deepak Parekh Chairman, HDFC more  
In general It is very difficult that two intellectuals to work together. that is a hard known fact.But here the motto of " FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION" is the bond that will keep them fix.They may be differences between them ,but they should be discussed indoor and there individual views should not come open.Otherwise media & other parties take advantage of it. Better forget all egos & hero worships with common aim, that we are fighting the 2nd freedom struggle. more
