Looks like fasts against governments do not bother Indians !! So far, all fasts,in the recent past have failed and Kejriwal, the activist turned politician who is also diabetic, has lost 7 kgs in 11 days indicating even this fast would fail. Arvind Kejriwal is on a fast against inflated water and electricity bills in Delhi. While the party claims there have been lakhs of people signing the ‘ bijli-paani satyagrah ‘pledge,it looks like nothing would actually change.Kejriwal has pledged people not to pay their power bills(and everyone else would pay the bills except for him, I suppose).With the summers knocking the door who would risk a permanent power and water cut? The Delhi government inspired by its counterpart at the Centre (after all they are the same political party) and the Prime Minister , prefers remaining deaf ears while Kejriwal’s detoriating health may soon put him off the fast .
Meanwhile,the Chief Minister,Sheila Dikshit had her birthday celebrated by party members on 31st March and was seen enjoying a chocolate cake on the occasion !
Arvind Kejriwal’s fast completes 11th day and remains unheard!
The name,Anna Hazare, got popular with the same Lokpal Bill issue which he wanted to be passed by the government, to curb down corruption in India and the same Lokpal Bill made him head a team called ’ Team Anna’ and then differences of opinion made Arvind Kejriwal, a prominent Team Anna member split and launch his political party- the Aam Aadmi Party-a political solution to fight corruption in India and all this paced down the India Against Corruption Movement led by Anna.Now it seems like another key member Kiran Bedi has a difference of opinion with Anna.Hopefully,she sticks around with Anna.
The government,on the other hand, has not only been quite successful in curbing down the much-hyped ‘India Against Corruption Movement’ but has also successfully reduced the strength and impact of Anna and his Team.Kudos to the art of silence of our Prime Minister ’Maun’(means silence in Hindi)mohan Singh,the India Against Corruption Movement slowly and yet steadily lost its leadership,pace,goal and ultimately the interest and support of usually reluctant to react- ’Aam Aadmi’(common man). Well,the mystery remains unsolved if it was Team Anna itself or a clever brain of the Govt behind the sabotage of a world renowned movement led by Anna. :)
Anna and Kejriwal not,Bedi ok with new lokpal bill draft
Anna Hazare ,the anti-corruption crusader, who seems pathless after Arvind Kejriwal (ex key Team Anna Member) decided to join politics to curb corruption,leaving Anna and his anti-corruption movement directionless,has declared he wont vote for Kejriwal’s party as he feels Kejriwal is power hungry.Previously,as well, he had given similar statements against Kejriwal and Kejriwal remain silent.
Is this a genuine feedback about Arvind Kejriwal by his ex-boss, Anna Hazare or is it just dissatisfaction as the focus of the world has shifted from Anna and ‘India Against Corruption’ Movement to Arvind Kejriwal and his ‘Aam Admi Party’?
Anna Hazare says he wont vote for ‘AAP’ as Kejriwal is power hungry
Regardless,’Aam Aadmi Party’ be successful in 2014 Elections,at least, the country has some hope intact. Congress has got enough chance since independence,BJP does not seem that promising and a Third-Front formed by several small parties has always been a disaster in the past.
After Robert Vadra,Nitin Gadkari and ties between Reliance and Govt(to benefit Reliance exclusively),IAC chief,Arvind Kejriwal, has picked up Indians (including politicians of the Govt which the govt had previously denied) who he alleges own Swiss Bank Accounts.He has blamed big business houses of the country, of having Swiss Bank Accunts including the Ambanis,Dabur,Birla and many more.
Anna Hazare, the Gandhian activist, who was the boss of India Against Corruption Movement and also the boss of Arvind Kejriwal feels Arvind may be Power Hungry although he also claimed Arvind is not greedy for money ! They parted ways after Arvind decided to get into politics in order to curb corruption which Anna did not agree on!
Well,its human to be greedy provided it is directed towards a noble cause.
Salman Khurshid, the Union Law Minister, in an interview,declared that Arvind Kejriwal is an ant and Congress is an elephant.It is nt possible for an ant to destroy an elephant.
Well,who is more powerful the ant-Kejriwal or the elephant -Khurshid and Congress, is a matter of debate but there is no denial that Arvind Kejriwal,the activist turned politician,has already started giving tough time to Congress and its ‘clear-image’ leaders including PM Manmohan Singh,Union Law Minister,Salman Khurshid.
