A Disintegrating Aam Aadmi Party
For many, stupidity is a virtue and we may have to live with this fact. But for the first time in my mortal existence, I found a group of people went stupid at one go; not just for once but for twice in a row. Yes, I am talking about the Delhi voters. Pardon me for my generalization but doing something horrible first time can be attributed as a mistake but when you repeat that and that too in quick succession then it leaves no option but to call you a stupid. That is what the voters of Delhi did when they gave a highly camouflaged party like AAP a thumping majority, which it doesn’t deserve by any stretch of reasoning. After the horrendous 49 days of farce outing that Arvind Kejriwal did, it begs for some sensible articulation on what ground the Delhi voters decided to go with the same man all over again. Plain hallucination or misplaced priorities or abject foolhardiness or mixture of all three?
It is no denying that AAP came as a refreshing change. With all their hypocrisies, AAP still stood as that spark of light at the end of the tunnel. A frustrated citizenry with array of problems, not just corruption, in their day to day lives, found AAP to be the answer. Mistakes happen and we can give that liberty to the voters of Delhi for once. Even mistakes are prudent when they occur on the prospect of a lot of promised free stuffs. So that was fine. But how AK repaid that faith? If anyone tries to describe AK’s 49 days escapade without attaching disaster to it then he/she is either an AAPTard or doesn’t know a thing about democracy or simply may be having a retard brain. Even disaster would go bankrupt in describing AK’s 49 days governance which was nothing but fracas with one drama or the other every day. The only bright side to the 49 days pain was the quick ending to the torture. Delhi breathed again. Though the advent of president’s rule shouldn’t delight any democracy loving soul it still was better in the comparison between devil and the deep sea. But that was short lived too. The farce is back again at the helm after a year and doing what he does best. That is immediately picking up a quarrel with insanity for supremacy, albeit, this time the quarrel is among their own.
Great power (read mandate) requires even greater responsibility to do justice and unfortunately both AAP as a party and AK as a leader lack it by some margin. They call their party is for all whereas the ground truths are far from being that rosy. AK is one man who loves being there at the center stage. The last thing this man wants is a share in the power and rapport that he enjoys. In his mission for that self-solemnizing bath in the pond of power, AK found Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan as some kind of hindrance. Quite rightly, these two guys also wanted to share some of the pie that AK till then was enjoying alone. And I don’t blame them. With all his internal surveys, Yogendra Yadav did work out of his skin to uphold the rapidly deteriorating image of AAP post 2014 general elections. Ditto goes with Prashant Bhushan with all his Kashmir rhetoric. For all their work, dirty most of the times, these two faggots certainly deserved more than what AK offered them. Egos clashed and personal ambition took the better of their so called core values that these guys were seen touting all this while. There came the call for the national convener post to be released by AK for someone else, presumably for one of these two guys. But AK loves keeping everything to himself. So the sycophants of AK were let loose, not alone on us but also on YY and PB as well. The sycophants got so overboard that they started bashing each other in public. Arsenals of worst kind were used by both sides to suppress the other. In just a matter of 3 days the entire AAP lot became a laughing stock. As expected, both YY and PB were shunned out from the decision making body of the party quite unceremoniously. That is almost like getting expelled.
But the internal fighting in AAP or the ouster of YY and PB are least of my concerns. Pigs fighting in mud is not my cup of tea and I least bother on the reasons or the outcome of such fights. What bothers me is the latest travesty that is quite ungodlily exposing itself in the open. In response to their ouster, the master in YY and PB released a tape containing some telephonic conversation of AK with one Congress MLA prior to the Delhi elections. Now this is what worries me; no, not AK having a telephonic conversation with someone but the nature of the talk. In about 3 minutes, AK defied all that he claimed his party and he himself stands for. In 3 minutes flat, AK showed how big a rot he is when it comes to attaining power. The tall claims of cleansing our politics from inside suddenly looked like a big lie of this lie factory called AK. Not that it came as a surprise for me. A dubious character like AK was always in my list of most non-trustworthy characters that one can ever come across; just that I didn’t have any proof to substantiate my beliefs till now.
The nature of the discussion that AK allegedly did is quite worrisome. The ignorant and the blind believers of AAP got the jolt of their lives when they found, even their beloved party AAP has such dirty underbelly. AK in the telephonic conversation also made one more fundamental thing clear. Like an average gutter produce politician of this country who finds everything that is Hindu to be dismissed, AK also strongly believes in minority politics. That is perhaps why he said, the Muslims would never vote for BJP and a breakaway faction from Congress with Muslim MLAs would invite all Muslim votes to pour in themselves. How dirty and obnoxious it sounds when a so called corruption crusader talks the lines of a third rate communal faggot for power? Where has the anti-corruption plank gone? Isn’t this very act of inciting skullduggery is corruption in itself? Though I initially termed AK and his team of buffoons as Congress – B, now I want to differ. Not differ in the gist of my earlier assessment but by a fraction. The fresh assessment is; the Congress thugs were never aware that they were creating a Frankenstein in the process. To shun Shiela Dixit so that she never becomes a threat to a useless Rahul Gandhi, the sycophants in Congress did a mistake in allowing this selfsame Arvind Kejriwal to taste power. The moron was always a power hungry leech anyway. The combination turned out ugly in due course and rest is history, as they say.
The nature of this discussion is even more worrying for another reason. It is quite surprising to realize that AK in reality was fooling everyone all this while including the voters of Delhi and his bosses in Congress. His rhetoric as an anti-corruption crusader was a big farce and lie. The core motto in any such initiative was to pit himself against the BJP in due course, riding on the ill gotten money from both Congress and Ford foundation. That is the precise reason why this moron ran all the way from Delhi to Banaras to pit himself against Narendra Modi when there were many corrupt scoundrels of other parties filing their nominations left-right-and-center in various parts of this country. Surprising, our media which gave more than just adequate air time to this jerk, never asked why he showed that horridness in fighting against Modi. Perhaps they would never ask because that would put many people in a really uncomfortable position. And most of them are the ones whom our media frauds are highly obliged for various reasons. The truth behind AK’s move to go to Banaras may never come but how foolish the Delhi voters can be to ignore such glaring gobbledygook?
Funnier is the manner in which the clueless spokespersons of AAP handled the mess. Leading from the front in this hara-kiri were one Ashish Khetan and a certain Raghav Chaddha with a buffoon called Ashutosh tucked somewhere in between with his incomprehensible English. All three of them are clowns of first degree. For the moron Ashish Khetan, AK’s fraudulent means of attaining power is nothing but political realignment. Realignment? Seriously? That is like a rapist proclaiming his act as not crime but a PR activity. What kind of jerk can term a clear-cut bastardization of our democracy as an act of political realignment? It may be a political realignment at ‘Ashish Khetan School Of Politics’ but for most of us, it is nasty horse trading. Raghav Chaddha is another crook in the making, albeit, he is not aware of many things, including but not limited to the reasons why was he there in various TV studios that day. He was going tangent to each and every discussion he attended. It was surprising that none of the anchors asked this Chaddha chap on the specific narcotic he was smoking since morning. Ditto goes with Ashutosh but then, cluelessness is his strength and virtue. It was only necessary that Arnav settled this moron at his rightful place for deviating from the core issue of the fraud factory that AK is.
