AAP – Winners in hurry!

Start of 2014, history was written with democracy as an undisputed winner. Yes! we are celebrating the remarkable victory of AAP (Aam   Aadmi Party) inDelhi assembly elections. In context of new age Indian democracy this is unprecedented where a group of change agents got people involved and went ahead to form a government at the seat of parliament in Delhi.

Manifesto of the party was clear and Arvind Kejriwal was forthright in hitting corruption and bringing it out as the major aliment in India. Indeed in current scenario of Indian polity this is very pertinent, with scams galore. People have given thumbs up to their candid view, on ground approach and to hope that people of the country can bring out change. We think that the later is a big win for democracy.

Going back to old times, once a battle is won, one needs to re-enforce the resources and prepare for the war ahead. AAP needs to recognize this fact, they have proven themselves by winning the battle and there is no need for a rapid slew of actions to prove their mantle in governance. In this haste there have already been false starts with “Janta durbar” to be moved from physical meeting to an online format, free water and 50% reduction in electricity cost is yet to start, saying “no” to FDI in retail, agitation on recent Delhi rape case. These instances are giving confusing signals to people. Various party leaders like Kumar Vishwas, Prashant Bhushan giving divergent opinions on crucial issues to media is compounding the issue further.

People would like to see a concerted action, oneness in party and manifesto towards a) India’s growth, b) bring rural masses to main stream, c) regional issues plaguing the country, d) economic vision and e) International relations. It is to be seen what stance the party takes and get the act right.
