The Varanasi Blunder Of Arvind Kejriwal
Arvind Kejriwal is a grossly ill-advised man, provided he does have an advisory board to begin with. In a span of only 3 years AK accomplished as many gaffes as a colony of 30-40 high grade morons would fail to achieve. I am not sure if it has anything to do with the kind of people AK was mingling with prior to his opportunistic political foray but his level of insanity seems to have at least tripled since the day of his divorce from team Anna. Along with making the life of himself and his equally notorious cronies miserable he also has made the life of many AAP supporters despondent by his uncountable number of goof ups and that too with double the speed. The goof ups were so serious that even the hardcore #AAPTards are now finding it difficult to cover up the mess any more. A clear cut reason why many of the so called founding members of AAP are ditching the party.
Be it the regrettable stint at Delhi CM’s office or his hilarious stage managed nonsense of an agitation against the central government in front of the Rail Bhawan; be it even his one way philosophy of accusing every living creature on this planet as corrupt or making mockery of established procedures in the name of aam-aadmi; blunders of AK are literally too many to count. There are many among the true AAP supporters who are getting fed up with such daily dramewazis of their leader, who unfortunately designates himself as a certified anarchist. There seems to be a rapid rise of dissent among the AAP supporters on whether to be a party to the hourly base nonsense of AK any more. I had personally interacted with many hardcore AAP supporters and most of them agreed that AK should have stuck to his Delhi CM seat and should have done something differently to do justice to the faith that the Delhi voters showed him. For many of his present and ex supporters, AK shouldn’t have dreamt big so early and should have concentrated on managing a state to build up his already overhyped rapport. But little did the supporters know that AK was never posted to rule Delhi. He was installed for an entirely different reason and he is just doing as directed by his hidden bosses. That said, let’s keep aside the “AAP is Congress-B team debate” for the time being and concentrate on AK as an independent politician to analyze his hara-kiri of last 2 years. While we are at it, we must also should analyze the kind of arrogance the entire AAP thugs have accumulated post a meager 32% vote share in Delhi.
The latest and perhaps the biggest of the bloopers coming from AK is his decision to fight against NaMo from Varanasi. I am sure AK’s intoxicated brain has further staled post his victory over Shiela Dixit in Delhi but that can’t be an excuse for a cunning person like AK to miss the plot when he thinks NaMo is another Shiela. Just because he blows the aam-aadmi trumpet, he can’t fool the voters one more time and that too against a seasoned politician like Modi. For the benefit of many and AK himself, let’s go through at least two points on why this decision of AK to have a direct fight with NaMo is going to boomerang back at an alarming proportion.
NaMo is no Shiela Dixit – I am not saying Shiela was a bad CM as many of other Congress CMs are. In comparative terms SD is a far better CM than the most that Congress ever had. And this is where the problem for SD started. Rapidly Shiela was beginning to emerge as a threat to the Mai-Baaps of Congress and their grip over the party. Had SD won one more time, her claim to be projected as the PM candidate of Congress and quite rightly so would have increased many folds. And it is not a secret that any such development may not go down well with the personal interest of the party high commands. As per Congress culture, at any given point, none can be projected, let alone SD, above Rahul and Sonia Gandhi. And again it no more a secret that a vibrant political career of SD has to be cut to size in the larger interest of the perpetual party high-commands. In other words, the history of Rajesh Pilot and Madavrao Scindhia has to be repeated so that none scares the future of Rahul Gandhi. So there goes the dirty trick department of Congress with over aggressiveness to see their own CM getting defeated. If my sources aren’t wrong, the Congress itself planned a debacle for Shiela in Delhi. The equation was simple for Congress that time – for safeguarding the likes of RG, it can sacrifice hundreds of Shiela Dixits on any given day. Along with substantial public anger such apathy of her own against SD benefitted AK immensely. Even after that AAP came out second behind BJP. But look at the irony, AK thinks all elections and every constituency as Delhi. But he forgets one very vital point – NaMo is a far mature politician than SD and there is no rotten high-command culture in BJP.
The time has changed – When AK started his AAP gimmick, the situation and the public anger was different. During that time, in one of my blogs I had written how AK is in an enviable position where he has the liberty of blaming everyone else as corrupt. I also had written post AAP’s success in Delhi that the real litmus test for AK begins now. And boy wasn’t that a true litmus test where AK failed miserably? His once in every hour nonsense has irritated the same voters who were head-over-heels in supporting him just 6 months back. Now people have seen through the plot of AAP and at best consider AAP and AK as big gasbags with no substance but only noise. In the name of governance AK provided the Delhi citizens anarchy, lawlessness and stunts of Dharnas and street agitations for every damn thing. Without acting on pertinent issues, which the Delhi voters thought AK will, he resorted to some unwanted Harishchandragiri for the cameras to keep on flashing on him. And by the time he was done with all his aerobatics, he duly shunted the faith of the voters to a corner and ran away from his responsibilities to throw tantrums on pan-India basis. Today this; tomorrow that remained the core ideology of AK and his lout of a party, in the process losing the faith of the voters every hour. While initially voters thought AK to be a visionary now they know AK has no vision or at best a vision for a day on how to showcase yet another nonsense to remain relevant in prime time news. The Delhi success which has transformed the entire congregation of aam-aadmis to an arrogant lot was because of a frustrated voters lot and their over emotional love for a crook called AK. Now the mask has entirely pilled off and AK stands exposed more than Sunny Leone with his true self.
