The Blunders of Kejriwal

Arvind Kejriwal had waded into the now-ongoing Indian general elections with his eyes set on the moon. But the writing on the wall is that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader will have to content himself with a few pebbles accidentally washed ashore for him.

Kejriwal will be the biggest loser of the Indian elections. The formal confirmation will come on May 16 when the votes are counted after the 9-phase marathon poll process, which started on April 7, comes to an end on May 12.

AAP has fielded candidates in 440 constituencies out of total 543 Lok Sabha seats. But it will be a miracle if the party gets even into double digits when the results are announced on May 16. The extremely low ratings given by bookies to Kejriwal is a case in point. Kejriwal is set to lose his own seat from Varanasi where he is pitted against the Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and Congress party’s Ajay Rai, a sitting MLA from the area.
Varanasi has got completely polarized and chances are that the voters there will be voting on communal lines — Hindu votes going in favor of Modi while the Muslim voters pitching for the Congress. In this tactical battle of the ballot, Kejriwal seems to be completely out of depth and the only relevant question is how big his defeat margin is going to be.
Even in Delhi, where AAP’s dream debut started as a political party just four months ago, Kejriwal’s party is unlikely to get more than one or two seats out of seven. However, to the credit of AAP, the new-born party is likely to poll higher number of votes than the Congress in most of Delhi constituencies.

So, what has gone wrong for Kejriwal and AAP? Kejriwal has committed five major blunders, many of which he himself and his top aides have confessed to.

Kejriwal’s first blunder, which triggered the avalanche for him and his party, was his impulsive decision to quit as Delhi chief minister on Feb. 14, his 49th day in office. This act of desertion of responsibilities prompted Modi to acerbically describe Arvind Kejriwal as AK 49. Kejriwal himself has admitted that it was a mistake to have resigned at that point of time and he ought to have waited for more days and tried to gauge the public opinion on the issue before resigning.
For his part, Kejriwal was being politically shrewd as he wanted to be a free bird, contest more than 400 seats with the hope of repeating his Delhi assembly polls antics and emerging as the king maker, if not the king himself, in the general elections. But he is destined to end up as a novice in politics.

His second blunder was to contest from 440 seats. No start-up political party fields candidates from 440 out of 543 Lok Sabha seats in its debut general election. Even the grand old party, Congress, has fielded lesser candidates, 420 to be precise.
By spreading his poll dragnet to 440 seats, he has stretched his resources too much too far and risking losing the very base he started from. He ought to have given a deep focus attention on 50 or 100 select constituencies and try to have a winning ratio of 70-80 per cent, a doable thing.
Kejriwal’s aide Prashant Bhushan has admitted that AAP has indeed stretched itself too thin.

Third blunder of Kejriwal was to dream big and set his eyes on the top job of prime minister, barely two months after he ran away from discharging his responsibilities of a chief minister.
None other than his one-time mentor and benefactor Anna Hazare has gone on record as saying that Kejriwal quit Delhi as he wanted to become the prime minister.

His fourth blunder is that he has made more and more enemies while steadily losing friends and admirers. This smack of megalomania and no politician can survive with this kind of delusional feeling of being a Superman.

Kejriwal’s fifth blunder is that much like Anna Hazare he has started sounding like a broken record where everybody is corrupt except him and his party members. His every speech begins and ends with the same content where he is pointing his fingers at problems but does not give solutions.

When he had a whale of an opportunity to demonstrate to the people of India of identifying the problems and removing them one by one, he turned an escapist and resigned as Delhi chief minister without any credible reason or provocation.

Kejriwal needs to reinvent himself if he really wants to cleanse the system. After the elections, he needs to take a break and mull over how to do it. Even the 74-year-old Anna Hazare has been talking about setting up his own political party to contest general elections, but not today or tomorrow. Instead Hazare has been talking about contesting elections in 2019 or even 2024! Why should Kejriwal be in such a tearing hurry? He is just 45. more

Dear President,
BJP.
SUB : ADVANI - THE CONGRESS MOLE .


I am writing to you for a long time that ADVANI is SONIA mole in BJP to sabotage BJP's 2014 poll prospects . Again and again my prophecy is coming true .

Yesterday 19th April , he has again striked BJP hard in JHABUA MP where polling is scheduled for 24th April . In the midst of campaign , he praised NEHRU & GANDHI in Congress's old tribal area , totally skipping mention of NaMo wave . At the same time , to give a further dent to BJP campain , he praised Shivraj & Raman Singh to draw parallels with MODI . He made no appeal for vote for party candidate .His intention is very clear . He wishes to see success of 160 CLUB of which he is founder member and derail BJP success . He may or may not succeed but his actions are helping CONGRESS Party.

NO sooner the elections are over , your first task should be to show him the door . Till such time that he is thrown in KARACHI sea , he will remain a thorn in your camp and go on and on to trouble BJP and give political fodder to opponents. more  
What you said Mr. RN Kapil is absolutely right. I wants add that Rahul should take small ministerial post in one of the states in which Congress is ruling now and after 10 years of experience he may think of P.M. of India. more  
SUB : DESPERATE CONGRESS IS SCARED OF LOSING POWER .


Media should put following direct question to Rahul Gandhi .

" Country does not know RAHUL's administrative capabilities . Why has he not taken a ministerial responsibility in 10yrs of UPA Govt when PM was willing to give him anything he wished ? By opting to head a ministry , RAHUL could have shown his mantle , his work , his capability & what he stands far . In its absence countrymen are unaware of his capabilities . What right right has he after 10yrs of shirking responsibility to lecture on performance of GUJRAT . "

Point is very simple . Why other political parties are not questioning his credentials on governance ? He has wasted 10 yrs on picnicking under the shadow of his mother . He did not even performed his constitutional responsibility of attending the Parliament or attending to developement work of AMETHI (His constituency) .By taking an important ministerial berth which was very well offered to him on platter by Manmohan , he could have gained useful experience or at least he could have boasted of it at the end of term .

Now his mother tells the citizens , we have given to you RTI , RTE ,FS ,MNREGA . She further says , she will give all citizens Right to Health , Right to Home and in exchange she demands for her & her son your vote to rule till eternity . She guarantees that people will not have to work any more and money required to run the country will come from ITALY ( Mama Ke Ghar Se). The whole family is so much desperate to win elections 2014 that they can give you anything in exchange for VOTES AND RETURN TO POWER . For achieving their goal , Sonia , Daughter & Son are indulging in all sorts of lies , inaccuracies and filthy language. more
