Finally Kejariwal has taken the oath as the new Chief Minister of Delhi and already assumed the office. Having followed Arvind Kejariwal and having participated in the Anna Hazare led nation-wide agitation for the Jan Lokpal bill, formation of AAP came as a big surprise to me. Having read Kejariwal’s interviews that he’s a ‘common man’ who does not want to fight elections (which, by the way, looked very truthful & promising), Kejariwal forming a new political party was the last thing I’d have expected.
But the reality is that Kejariwal has already became the Chief minister of Delhi – with a promise that AAP will clean up the politics by becoming a part of the system. I seriously do not know where is this heading.
People said Kejariwal is the backup plan for Congress think tank; and I rejected their opinions outright. But the fact is that Kejariwal has joined hands with Congress and has formed government with their support! We simply can’t ignore this big, bold FACT! Is this how the politics in India evolving? Is Kejariwal the ‘Nayak’ that we saw in movies?
I’m sitting on the fence – between BJP and the AAP; with my both legs towards the BJP side. I still want Modi to become the Prime Minister of India; because I want someone who’s got the experience and a proven track record. Modi haters – please stop popping out that bullshit ‘communal’ card. Though I do not believe in Indian Judiciary system, all the special investigation teams that were appointed by Congress have found Modi not guilty of the riots. If Modi builds great roads in India – they’ll will be open to everyone – irrespective of your religion.
For 2014, my vote still goes to the BJP – only because that will help Modi become the CM. I know the BJP isn’t all ‘clean’; but I will still vote for them because I want the top job to be taken up by someone who can ‘lead’, who can take decisions for us; and not someone who comes back to me asking for decisions. My belief is that you need a benevolent dictator to rule a country and group decisions do not work!
It’d be interesting to see how Kejariwal evolves. I hope he does a good job in Delhi. But I definitely want Mr. Modi to be India’s PM in 2014.
