Were we delivered with what was promised?

The outcomes of Delhi state polls were witnessed as a remarkable beginning of a distinct and cleaner political environment. It was sure that the mass voted for those who promised to bring in better governance. The Aam Aadmi Party, though not a clear winner, stood up as the most influential party. Not just inside the borders of India, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal fetched admiration even on the international forum. People regarded him as a leader who would deliver unbiased and anti-corrupt governance. What truly happened was unfortunately depressing.

Right from the beginning of the formation of the Government, the AAP and its leaders remained an inseparable part of controversies. The person, who repeatedly confirmed prior to the polls that the party would never make alliance with any other political party, went to the public to seek advice whether to or not to form Government. We could have appreciated this measure, however, where was the public opinion when the party decided to discontinue? Wasn’t the party accountable to the people of Delhi who supported them during and after the polls? Weren’t the leaders answerable to those who had enormous expectations with respect to reforms and development? Finally, the AAP has opted to stay away from administration alleging that the opposition and the political party supporting them are not in favor of eradicating corruption. Well said by a former administrative officer and a member of Team Anna, ‘AAP is looking for Lok Sabha and not Lok Pal’.

Let us also make sure whether the Delhi Government delivered the promised governance during 49 days of their administration. I would begin with the incident that was telecasted on a new channel a few days ago representing the rage of the residents of a particular locality who slapped one of the AAP MLAs. These residents were promised with pipeline for water supply in their area. Was Lok Pal more essential than water? Why didn’t the AAP Government present any model for improving the water supply in Delhi? Following are some endless events that reflected the fact that AAP leaders were not the way they projected themselves.

The amount spent on public swearing-in was in lakhs. Was this at all necessary? The party leader could have used his regular vehicle to attend the swearing-in, however, chaos in the Delhi metro was definitely not worthy. It was hard to believe that a young lady minister alleged for security on the incident of a 6-year old boy accidentally hitting her car with a tennis ball. The state Law Minister tried hard to summon all Delhi High Judges to his chamber. The same minister, accompanied by slogan-mongering supporters, threatened the SHO and foreign natives during late night hours without a proper order (warrant). The Chief Minister of the state who continuously disagreed with the bungalow culture finally approved to acquire a ten-room residence, however, the unfavorable voice of mass couldn’t let him check in. How fair was the step to write off electricity dues of those who did not pay their bills? Didn’t the ones who paid these high bills deserve reimbursement? But the Government did not think of any such policy. Metered water consumers were lured with free consumption upto 700 litres, however, no strategy was in place to help those who did not have meter/ pipeline installed.

Who can justify the occasion when the state Chief Minister was lying in warm clothes to protest against the police administration while at the same time numerous policemen were standing and struggling hard to ensure his utmost safety? The respectable position of the Lieutenant Governor was abused by one of the party leaders. There is no immediate end to such incidences. The reason of my writing is strictly related to awakening the mass and letting them know that words aren’t enough to bring in revolutions. No one can be declared honest on his own words. We have to learn to comprehend the potential of those who allege to be pure. Lastly, it is considerable to note that the candidate from Moradabad for the AAP is a severe bank defaulter. Can we expect honest and effective reforms from a party that is not vigilant enough in the starting phase? The AAP, to prove its capability and purity, must learn from the 49-days experience and must build a workable strategy for urgent improvements.
