AAP BROOM SWEEPS OWN OFFICE
In Delhi! Assuming office after the historical verdict, AAP- the party, seems to be busy sweeping its own office. The party should have got set gone and should have been busy in the administration of the state. Not even 45 days are complete; the attitude of the people at the helm is no different, rather it is worst. In this process of sweeping it doesn’t seem to realise that jewels, diamonds and precious things are also being thrown in the dust-bin.
Not only Delhi, the whole country knows who and how the party came into existence, why was it given a chance, so on and so forth. I do not understand; does that happen only in India; you are given the power and you show your back to one who gave it to you. The people are forgotten. The objectives just remain as they are; waiting for execution. In such a scenario ‘the vote for recall’ would work. What Anna Hazare was fighting for and proposed to bring it into practice. Given the opportunity, the voters would show their might and again give a befitting verdict, the numbers ratio may make everybody to raise their eyebrows as it had done in the recent election. 67:3.
The below script or words had come from my head with such speed; immediately after the Delhi Electoral verdict in the month of February 2015. But somehow I was not able to publish it in any media and my Blog was not in existence then, it had remained in my ‘Jewel Box‘, I was reluctant to post it on the Blog as it would be irrelevant, because time has passed by and the changes at Delhi would make it stale news.
But, I now want it to be known by my readers, just to have a comparative study of what changes happen. And for us Bloggers it would be a study of both the write-ups. What a dramatic reversal of the scene. What a super blow on the cheeks of people of Delhi. Will they forget? They observe silently. They will show what they are during the next election. But, till then, what about them and the country, where do they propose to take.Question is where is the party heading to? Such a lot of money and time is being wasted in the inner quarrels.
It is a laughing matter to say: Aam Admi Party (AAP) becomes Arvind Alone Party (AAP), its not me who is saying this, its the media and may be the people also.
Arvind Kejriwal! Parshant Bhushan! Yogendra Yadav! Are you listening!!!!!!!!!!!!
I put below this write-up as a Postscript to this POST.

AAP BROOM SWEEPS POLITICAL ARENA
In Delhi! Much before all the dirt of Delhi was swept and attempts made by the public in the high profile call for clean India _ “The Swach Bharat Abhiyan”; Aam AadmiParty has cleaned the political arena of Delhi. The verdict of the Delhi elections is the outcome of the messy atmosphere that was to be cleaned up. It’s the trumpet call for the rest of the country and especially the major and regional political parties. There are various reasons for the storming victory of the party which sends a warning message to the other so called political parties of its behavior and commitment. The verdict in itself warns the AAP also as to its own conduct in future. The mandate has delivered multiple lessons to all in politics in the country as a whole. In the number game all predictions have proved wrong either be among the media, parties or the people. That was a great surprise to the country and even to the AAP. This will go as a red lettered political history.
The verdict tells us that there is a common man in every man. Just to remember the recent death of Shri R.K.Laxman the great cartoonist, how the whole country silently mourned for him only because he was the only cartoonist who said about the common man in his cartoonish lines for almost half a century. The whole scenario is enough to know about the fact that there is a living common man in every person.
The Kiran Bedi episode has cost BJP dearer and maybe has made even her to repent, having deserted her party. The childish like talk of hers during the elections and even after the verdict shows her immature and unseasoned political stature. The demonstration of lack of leaders in the BJP in Delhi contributed to the sweep which they would dare not to do in future. The walk in of so many AAP leaders in the BJP has made them squeeze their own hands of having left their party. The confusion created among BJP party workers the so called committed Karyakartas in the BJP, the undue importance given to the guys and gals who have just walked in sidelined the karyakartas, made them silent spectators or work with vengeance.
The indifferent attitude of the people of Delhi has again proved that they are indifferent. It is evident when seen in the past few decades they have always shown their indifference, when in the country the others had given a change in the various election mandates, some had given clear mandates to regional parties in so many states and had given chance to BJP, JDS,JDU,NCP,PPP,TDP,Trinimool,Assom Gana Parishat,Jarkhand Mukti Morcha,Akali Dal ,Telangana etc; they still sticked to congress as if they would deliver the goods. Now they have kept all their stakes in AAP.
The innumerable warnings and alarms given to congress were not heard of; that resulted to offer them a Big Zero. The arrogance and overbearance of the BJP were not called for; to them it was not worthy of doing the act as they themselves are yet to substantiate their worth. The number 3 has shown them much earlier to change their attitudes.
Kejriwal’s resignation as CM was at that time looked down upon. But now it has contributed to him enormously. The mind of the voter has given room to psychological explorations. Whatever that might be explored it may still be incomplete, cause the voters’ mind is breezy and unpredictable. See the ridiculous ratio 67:3.
The involvement of the young Turks in AAP has shown as to what the young people of India want from the politics and governance. It was seen that all faces in AAP were new and most of them young, keeping the elders at a distance as if they were unwanted. The barring of entry of older slots from other parties proved right. The whispering in their ears that there is no entertainment here was absolute. The might and competence of the young gave a justification to AAPs success.
The slums and poverty in Delhi seen from the naked eyes and through media is a shame of political governance. Delhi being the capital of the country in such a state of chaos even after 68 years of independence; something somebody has to do about it. Will the new governance do?
The phrases like … “AK 67”, “sirf AAP baki sub saf”,etc; etc; were overwhelmingly received and enjoyed by the people.
Death! In the aftermath of the suspicious death of Indian Administrative Service (IAS) Officer there has been overwhelming response from the public and also the political opposition parties. Shri D.K.Ravi aged 36 of the 2009 batch who hails from a remote village from the Tumkur District of Karnataka, India, is a farmer’s son. On Monday the 16th March 2015 at around 10.30 am as he started his duty and after finishing his meeting with some officers he left to home which is on the ninth floor of his apartment building at 12 noon to end up his life, which raises suspicion. The mysterious story starts from there.
He hit the headlines and had become popular as Deputy Commissioner at Kolar for demolishing encroachments. Then transferred and appointed as Additional Commissioner (Enforcement) Commercial Taxes. He raided several business establishments and had attracted animosity among the class. His work was it against Corruption or against the system. Who is to answer this?
There have been days and hours of discussion in the legislative assembly on giving the case to CID or CBI. The CID is under the state government and the CBI is under the Central Government, both the governments are ruled by different parties at present in India. The resistance and inclination to give the case to the CID or CBI from these parties; clearly shows their interests and that the investigating bodies are not independent in its nature and working, it clearly means that. The investigations and enquiries done in the past by so many agencies and enquiry commissions have still been pending without having to take any action on the particular issues or on the persons involved. This the public knows. But still as usual they are being fooled.
Does it mean that there are no honest, promising and daring officers at all? If there are, are they working under pressure or are they working in disguise. Who and What is to be blamed is a Great Question.
THE IAS OFFICER’S DEATH!
Everyone has to die, Ok!
Suicide or Murder, Ok!
To say Ok is not Ok!
The whole society is mourning, Ok!
The wave of sympathy flowing, Ok!
THE QUESTION ARISES
Is being Honest and Daring not Ok?
Are the other officers in the system not Ok?
If they were Ok!
Had they to face the same, Ok!
Is it why they are in the system, that’s why it is Ok!
Law and Order is Ok!
CID Inquiry, Ok!
CBI Inquiry, Ok!
What will be the result of the enquiry? That should be Ok!
What action will be taken? That should be Ok!
People, Politicians and Public are rebelling, Ok!
The system is being continued since ages, Ok!
Why was it allowed to grow, is this Ok?
The Policies, The System, The Taxation, is it all Ok?
Everybody is Hand in Hand, is it Ok?
Ok!! __ Ok???
The pitiable Parents and Relatives of the officer are being brought to sit in front of the Vidhan Soudha to plead for an enquiry; just the next day itself after the funeral. They have to yet finish the last rites of their lost beloved. What an emotional setback and misfortunes of the family of the bereaved.
Normally we speak, and use the Ok Ok alphabets to confirm and affirm our dialogue. Sometimes some are used to express the Ok! Ok!; at intervals of every two or three sentences. The OK is also used in many languages today for acceptance, approve etc;. But I am using them in another context, Ok!
I give here below the headlines that hit the print media.
“IAS officer found dead at Bengaluru Home.”
“Ravi laid to rest with state honours at native village”
“People came in droves to pay last respects”.
“Parents demand CBI probe into Ravi death”
“Opposition parties insist on CBI probe, stall both houses”
“IAS officers divided over demanding CBI probe into Ravi’s death”
“Ravi’s IAS colleagues join the chorus for CBI inquiry”
“Before start of probe ,CID boss shifted”
“CID probe is as good ,CM tells Parents”
“Clamour for CBI probe grows loud, within and outside Vidhan Soudha”
“Activists, Opposition See foul Play, Want CBI Probe”
“Anger over IAS officer’s death rises, govt orders CID inquiry”
“Death was by suffocation, says autopsy”
“A serious issue, we will watch: Centre”
I WANT TO BE CHIEF MINISTER
The Police! In the town I saw so many Police staff at every nook and corner almost every furlong a constable standing on the road as if to guard the people and control the traffic. The whole atmosphere seemed to be disciplinarily different and unusual, I could not resist, so I went up to one PC and asked what was the matter, he told:“ The Chief Minister is coming” , I continued my enquiry and asked him when? He said:“tomorrow”. This was during my routine journey to work. The road which I take daily is in such worst condition since months, with so many pot holes and above that so many speed brakes, nobody would mind to take that road if there was an alternate, but in vain, you have to take the road in the hell of the traffic, for there is no substitute. That road was getting suddenly repaired, hundreds of working men and women and vehicles gathered to update the road with mud, sand and tar. I saw a smile in the faces of people passing by and one of them told me: “Chief Minister is coming tomorrow and he is passing by this road”. Oh! That was the reason.
The next day the whole atmosphere had changed in the town with big posters of the Chief Minister and other ministers and local leaders. Flex boards with photos hanging on every pillar welcoming the Chief Minister. The newspapers were full of news of the visit. I moved to the place where the CM would address the gathering, I found thousands of people gathered and waiting for the arrival. A few minutes passed by, a convoy of vehicles – Jeeps, Cars, SUVs, Police vans and two wheelers came with the sound of siren. At last he arrived; was the feeling of the mass.
The CM was taken to the dais with full security around him, so many people at the front, back and side of him. He sat and listened to the convocation song and welcome speech, after which he addressed the public. His speech was short and he committed tall claims about the growth of the state and the country. No sooner he finished, he was taken to his car with tight security, and the convoy drew back. The public dispersed with all sorts of talk. I observed and listened at close quarters. One of them was telling “I want to be Chief Minister”, and was explaining as to why he wanted to be one. Just see the importance given to the personality, if the CM is arriving the whole town has changed and is having a look of a fest. The road on which he passes for a few seconds is repaired and made brand new. Look at the security, he is not allowed to go close by anybody or rather opposite; no one can go near him. What’s in that? You just have to be in white Desi attire, talk loudly and answer to any question with full confidence to the public, the media or in the Vidhan Soudha. You may have said something yesterday and should have the capacity to twist the words and say a different thing today. He can sanction several projects worth hundreds of crores of rupees. Crores of rupees are at his disposal, god only knows how much he pockets. What we used to see in movies, hear from elders and from the books of being a King. Well! He is no different than a Maharaja!
I came home and kept on thinking what that citizen was telling. What he said was true; the boosting of one’s ego to its uttermost heights. Everybody in this world lives to strengthen, reinforce and boost his ego; given the chance to be the Chief Minister the greatest thirst is quenched. I reassured myself as to why in political circles and parties that they fight to become the Chief Minister; even at the cost of toppling the government. Leave aside Howmuchsoever he is busy or attacked by his own party members or the opposition; it quenches the EGO. Now who will not want to say: “I Want To Be Chief Minister”.
