Addressing one of his rallies,Modi attacked Arvind Kejriwal directly by calling him a Pakistani Agent. He said India had three AK’s emerging as Pakistani commanders on Indian side – First,AK47 which was used by Pakistan to bleed India.Second,AK Antony,the Union Defence Minister,who had stated in the Parliament that people who beheaded Indian soldiers were wearing the dress of Pakistan army, while army said Pakistanis had come.Last July,Pakistani army had intruded in the Indian side and beheaded two Indian soldiers. The third,Modi mentioned,was AK49 which has launched a new party recently. This was a mock at Arvind Kejriwal’s 49 day old govt in Delhi.
AAP has emerged as a strong vote-cutter for BJP in 2014 which was quite visible in Delhi polls where BJP could not make its Govt despite Congress losing real bad.
Finance Minister P Chidambaram is of the view that the UPA govt has achieved highest growth rate in any five-year period. He also doubts the economic understanding of BJP’s PM candidate, Narendra Modi and his claim of India can grow at 10 percent in present times.
While Finance Minister’s claims cannot be questioned as he mostly has his figures right and it is normally that India grows better on govt papers only. However,he might have skipped to mention the significant growth in the fields of Corruption and Inflation in UPA’s regime,so far,has been felt by every Indian.
Remember, the Pied Piper nursery rhyme?
With the arrival of 2014 accompanying AAP govt in the national capital,the battle of 2014 General Elections is becoming intense and the results are looking unpredictable,yet again. In between, it seemed,BJP led by Narendra Modi with the mantra of -DEVELOPMENT would make it to the power.If not a clean sweep by BJP, surely, the NDA , as a whole, may have formed its Govt in Centre.But,to the astonishment of many political analysts ,major political parties and the common man, Aam Aadmi Party, led by Arvind Kejriwal did immensely well in the Delhi Polls and although they managed 28 seats out of 70,they ended up making their govt in Delhi with the support of Congress. BJP chose to be in the opposition with 31 seats.
However, the results in Delhi gave AAP the confidence to think national. They have chosen 10 states and are aiming 100 seats for the upcoming General Elections. Now,the present scenario assures that those who are fed up of both the BJP and Congress but chose BJP over Congress, may opt for AAP . Moreover,AAP has managed to wake up those sections of voters who considered voting a waste of time.Those who prefer keeping themselves away from politics,all in all,as they felt their votes would hardly make a difference to clean the corrupt politics of India.
Looks like the Pied Piper playing the flute of ‘development in Gujarat’ will have to compete with another Pied Piper playing the flute of ‘Commoners fight against Corruption by Indian politicians’. By the way,what is Rahul Gandhi planning for 2014 GE ? 😀

AAP , the new political party in the nation and Arvind Kejriwal , the activist turned politician has given Sheila Dikshit and Congress great defeat in Delhi Assembly Polls and has come out as a strong contender for both the Congress and BJP. Interestingly, out of the 70 seats , AAP , the first timer in politics, has won 28 seats. BJP has managed 32 seats falling 4 short of getting the throne of Delhi. Congress has failed to manage even two figures.
Sheila Dikshit , has already resigned from the Chief Minister’s post.Pre-elections,she was heard claiming 2013 Delhi Assembly Elections was as usual a tough fight between Congress and BJP and did not consider Arvind Kejriwal and his AAP party any threat. Even BJP gave similar but balanced statements about AAP. However, the acceptance of AAP in Delhi shows the impact they have been able to create. The impact of the India Against Corruption Movement started by Anna Hazare and the decision of Arvind Kejriwal to enter into politics to curb corruption has got a warm welcome from the capital of the country.
Tougher task ahead for Arvind Kejriwal of keeping the faith of his supporters intact and for good.
The BJP, on the other hand , won 3 states – Rajasthan,Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh but the impact of NaMo wind could not stop the broom-man Arvind Kejriwal from being a spoiler for BJP.Although they got 32 seats in Delhi, they are 4 short of making a govt there. But so far,the trend for 2014 General Elections seem to be getting clearer.
The aspiring PM candidate of BJP and a tough contender for India’s biggest post,Narendra Modi ,without naming Arvind Kejriwal,accused the AAP Supremo of backstabbing Anti-Corruption crusader and his mentor, Anna Hazare , for his vested political interests.He said the entire Anti-Corruption movement started by Anna came to an end because of this.
Well , there is yet another person who may be sharing the stage with Anna Hazare.Someone who wanted to contest for the Top Job of India but could not.Thanks to the fan-following of his subordinate. Any guesses ? 😀
