Lucknow, India. October 22, 2016: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) district unit in the state capital on Saturday came in for sharp criticism for posing with victory signs and smiling at an event related to protests over dengue deaths in Uttar Pradesh.

The team of AAP’s Lucknow unit office bearers lodged a FIR against the municipal commissioner and city mayor Dinesh Sharma and then broke out into a cheerful celebration, posing for photographers flashing victory signs and smiling all through.

“With over 200 deaths in the city alone due to dengue and the menace still far from being contained, it is unfortunate that AAP office bearers have behaved in such a manner,” a municipal official said.

“The entire world now knows that the AAP stands for ‘tamasha’ and that’s what we are seeing here as well,” said a close aide of the city mayor while observing that the “immature behaviour of the leaders as seen on Saturday indicated how non-serious the party was to serious issues like dengue”.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders also said that while the AAP government in Delhi had been rapped by the courts left and right for dengue and chikungunya outbreak, its cadres were involved in theatrics in Lucknow. (IANS)

AAP Fiasco: AAP struggled to even Outrun NOTA in Gujarat

In the recently held Gujarat’s state assembly election, Bharatiya Janata Party won 99 seats, and the Congress pocketed 77 seats. Cleary BJP is the pack of the leader from all of the contested parties. Even after taking the crown of party president, Rahul Gandhi wasn’t able to muster enough votes for the debacle of the saffron party.

But the biggest party pooper was the Arvind Kejriwal led party, which wasn’t even able to open their account and thus lead to lose all deposits of their party candidates. The AAP party failed in all the constituencies from wherever they fought.

NOTA got more votes than the AAP party

The total votes of AAP counted 29,517, whereas voters opted for NOTA 75,880 times in the 29 seats, from where the AAP party contested. The NOTA figures almost double the vote count from what the AAP received.

The NOTA option went for 5.5. Lakh votes in Gujarat – five times more than the votes AAP was able to collect. The NOTA or None of the above is an option in every EVM machine, by which the voter can reject all of the candidates electing from their respective constituency.

The Gujarat voters placed NOTA above then the AAP party and thus NOTA got the third largest votes in the state, following the BJP and Congress party.

No List No Donation Campaign against AAP. Chanda Bandh Satyagraha was initiated by AAP's ex-NRI Cell Co-Convener Dr Munish Raizada
Even AAP volunteers have been demanding transparency within the party. Chanda Bandh Satyagraha was initiated by AAP’s ex-NRI Cell Co-Convener Dr Munish Raizada. The Satyagraha appeals to people NOT to donate to AAP unless the party makes its donations public. It may be remembered that AAP came into politics with a plank to bring financial transparency.

The AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj tried to put the blame on BJP by questioning about the counting of the Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trails slips.

Even the party’s Gujrat spokesperson Harshil Nayak attempted to curtain their poor show by making an excuse for late stand on elections by the core party.

AAP party lost miserably in Gujarat election

The steepest fall of votes for the AAP party was recorded in Ankleshwar constituency. Here, people picked NOTA and outnumbered AAP by more than 10 times of it.

The social media was abuzz with mocking ‘idealist’ AAP going bust in Gujarat. However, serious commentators saw AAP’s strategy to contest elections as a way to make money through ticket selling and wheeling dealing (such charges were aplenty in Punjab assembly elections too and even AAP volunteers had labelled such charges on AAP leaders).

 

Kapil Mishra was direct in leveling charges:

 

 

 

This tweet by Ravi Bhadoria questioned the integrity of AAP:

While Buland Awaaz said that: NOTA was a better option than “KHOTA”.

Jai Nath Misra- a London based AAP supporter and now turned rebel and chief patron of Chanda Bandh Satyagraha stated: अरे, चँदाचोर AK तो नोट(रुपया) गिन रहा है वोट नहीं. (ChandaChor Kejriwal is counting notes (money), not votes!

A couple of days before Gujarat faisco, AAP got a beating in Punjab’s local elections too. Here is a snapshot of AAP’s disastrous performance:
