On March 11, 2017, election results for 5 states were announced. One party won, other lost. All the hullabaloo for the past few months suddenly changed in to silence, deep enough. Major party of India currently, named Bhartiya Janata Party or BJP, synonymus to Hindutva for some, Anti-Dalit/Muslim for some, had much on stake, so did its main leader & Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi (Don’t call me Bhakt just for using ‘Shri’ before PM’s Name. He is PM, he deserves it). They won historically in UP/UK, almost there in Manipur & Goa, but lost in Punjab, mostly because of SAD (Shiromani Akali Dal).
But I am not writing to praise PM, but I have a different focus. One person, who suddenly came into horizon of politics 6 years ago, with campaign known as Anti-Corruption Movement ran by Shri Anna Hazare, who made a party soon after, who was the torchbearer(?) of honesty & clean politics, who targets BJP, accuses & abuses PM every morning on social media (where everyone else starts with good morning), who’s party members & supporters had the worst language for politics & who never left any chance to humiliate the current Central Government, has lost.
He not only lost, its a humiliating defeat for a party who’s members boasts of being almost angels on earth. A defeat, which can be remembered for, if not ages, atleast for some time. With this defeat, they are, for now, silent on social media.
They acquired 0 seats in Goa & 20 seats in Punjab, 2 states where they were winning with overwhelming, whopping votes & definitely forming governments, as they did in Delhi two years ago. Isn’t that overconfidence, unless you have true knowledge of reality? That person, either didnt know the truth, or ignored it, had to pay the price.
There were many factors were in play, according to me. First & foremost, his work for his state Delhi. Being a Chief Minister, he has totally ignored it. For the past two years, he went to Dadri, to Hyderabad, where some unfortunate incidents happened & where he can show the present government in bad light. Whereas the Delhi state govt employees were not getting their salaries on time, constant tiff with the former Lieutenant Governer, & now with the new LG, played against him. Secondly, his sole purpose is to accuse PM, in any thing whatsoever. I feel, he couldn’t digest losing to him in Varanasi by a margin of 3.5 lac votes in General Elections in 2014.
In my opinion, he seems to be hungry for power, satta ka bhookha. Which he showed from time to time, you can see it too, if you have an eye for details. First, he became CM of Delhi in 2013, then after only 49 days in office, he resigned, & fought GE, ofcourse to become PM of India, he lost. He came back, apologised to Delhi, made promises (many are not fulfilled till now, unless I am wrong), became CM again. From there on he is complaining on & on, from LG to Delhi Police & so on.
Then they contested elections in Punjab, & I am not sure, but if he had hopes for becoming CM of Punjab, it will not be exaggeration. All in all, he is a selfish leader, who only thinks of becoming a powerful one. Like, if being CM is powerful, he will try to become one, if being PM is powerful, he will try for it & if position of President is more powerful then he will try for that too. He wanted to be a leader, with everything is in his hands, where he can enjoy power, with no questions from anyone, most likely a dictator.
I am, personally, very happy that he lost. Not because I love BJP, I can support Congres too in his case. Because, despite of being old parties in politics & main opponents to each other, BJP & Congress always maintained a decorum, tehzeeb, in politics, which AAP lacked. From using vernacular language on public platform to shameful trends on social media abusing our PM, was more than worst for a political party. If you are against a party or its ideology, you have the right to speak against it, but nobody has the right to abuse its leader with whatsoever words. Questioning a party is good, but asking proof from the National Army not.
This party, its supporters had used such a downtrodden language, which is not only below the dignity of politics, but even a normal person might not use it. Jaitley ki Ketli, Churanchap Bhakts, is not the level of language you would expect from a political party, its more of street language.
With the defeat of AAP, people had rejected their kind of politics, that is evident. It also broke the hopes of its leader of becoming a national hero. With piling up of cases of defamation against him plus dissatisfaction of the people of Delhi & employees under state government, his chances of winning other states such as M.P. & Gujrat are not only impossible, but even chances of winning MCD elections are very grim.
I am not god & because time is the biggest player in politics, it will be better if we wait for these election results too. But what I am sure of, he now has only Delhi in his hand, which may also be lost in next elections in 2020, if he didnt change his lines.
