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.
In an interview, Sheila Dikshit,the CM of Delhi said she hopes to win it for the 4th time for her party,Congress, and also admitted that although activist turned politician , Arvind Kejriwal, has managed to catch people’s imagination but she has sincere doubts on the conversion of the same into votes. After all, Kejriwal and his party,AAP , is undoubtedly too new to fight the big guns of the politics keep aside winning.

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 ! 😉
