New Delhi, Aug 21, 2017: Aam Admi Party leaves no stone unturned to turn the competition in their favour. From targeting youth to women and the common man, they have now changed their focus to the Muslim community in Delhi. Recently, AAP’s sensational move stirred the social media.
A pamphlet asking Muslim residents in Bawana assembly constituency of Delhi to vote for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the upcoming Bawana bypoll was shared in the social media. The pamphlet professed an appeal to Muslim brothers by a Muslim cabinet minister of AAP, Imran Hussain.
The pamphlet desecrated the vote in the Uttar Pradesh assembly election, indicating the readers that their wrong choice of the vote could worsen the state of affairs in the vicinity. It said that Muslims can’t be swayed if they join hands and vote together.
The message out rightly professed Islamic ideologue, rather more brazenly. With statements like, “Our ancestors (Mughals) have ruled India for a thousand years and that Delhi belongs to Muslims”, nothing more is lucid than the communal propaganda of Kejriwal. What pride should one take in the fact that our land was once ruled by non-natives for several centuries?.
It also vouched for the pamphlet to be disseminated across Muslim shrines (Dargah) and every Muslim hook and corner.
The shameless vouching for votes does not even end here; it also demeaned others in the competition by calling them their enemies. Does this mean every Non-Muslim party is an ‘enemy’? Messages like will do nothing good than arousing animosity among the diverse sects.
The blatantly and flagrantly communal pitch of the pamphlet is noticeably an infringement of Supreme Court order that bans drum up support for votes in the name of any community. The order calls for disqualification of the candidate owing to such appeal.
Tajinder Bagga, a Delhi BJP spokesperson solicited a case to be registered against AAP supremo and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for dispensing such communal appeal.
The party which maintained the common man status in its initial stage is now a party full of goons. What obvious assertion does one need? Isn’t the poster pitching for communal stance enough to prove that in the so-called Aam Admi Party, nothing is Aam (common) except for one thing and that is double-dealing.

It goes without saying that this kind of personal attack on RSS chief shows the level of Kejriwal himself. One may have political differences, but why is Kejriwal so desperate?
To be an RSS parcharak, one has to be a man without family responsibilities so that he can dedicate time to society for the Hindu cause with the singular focus. Thus, you will see that majority of Parcharaks are not married. Mr. Mohan Bhagwat has devoted his life to the cause of Sanatan Dharma at the expense of personal pleasures and needs. Surely enough, pseudo-secular Kejriwal can not appreciate this fact. Kejriwal is proving that Cheap minds harbor Cheap thoughts.
On a related note, Kejriwal has accepted the invitation to attend Mother Teresa’s sainthood ceremony at Vatican city to be held on Septemeber 4. Bengal CM Mamta deedi has also grabbed this invitation. Both these liberal pseudo-seculars will grace the event for an evangelical nun who devoted her entire life in glorifying poverty and opposing abortions and of course converting Hindus to Christians. This nun was no one else than Mother Teresa!
In his eagerness to succeed in politics, Kejriwal is stooping to Miseries of politics,i.e., minority appeasement, Dalit card and populism. Set out on a path to bring vyastha parivartan, his allurement to quickies is disgraceful. This is what happens when yo do not have the substance (read Chintan), yet you attain a quick success playing by the sentiments of gullible voters and then showing them the back!
Meanwhile, if you do not understand my Outswinger, just wait a few months. MCD election results will deflate the balloon of AAP hype in Delhi where people are crying for civic amenities and good governance.
The Delhi government has decided to merge the annual mango festival with the “Delhi Summer Festival” this year , said Delhi Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra
The event to be held at Dilli Haat between June 24 and June 26, is the first summer festival to be organised in the Capital
A mango-eating competition will be one of the major attractions at the Delhi Summer Festival
The Delhi government announced a three-day summer festival at Dilli Haat in Janakpuri on Wednesday, June 15.
The government usually organises a mango festival every year, but this year, in 2016, it has decided to merge it with the “Delhi Summer Festival”, said Delhi Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra to The Hindu. The event, to be held for the first time in the Capital, will be inaugurated by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on June 24.
The festival boasts of a variety of attraction including dancers, singers, musicians and bands, comedians, illusionists and a mango eating competition to mark the regular Mango Festival of the city.
“100 hai daam, kitne khao aam (Eat as many mangoes as you want, only at Rs.100)”, is the tagline of the mango eating event which is open to all with only an entry fee of 100 INR. Summer fruits, beverages, desserts, smoothies, frozen yoghurt, etc. are on the menu for quick ‘beat-the-heat’ drinks, said the Hindu report.
“I am very excited to be in Delhi at this time of the year. I feel that finally, my struggle in the Delhi heat has paid off well,” says an American tourist on a one month stay at South Delhi.
According to the Hindu, other than handlooms, fabric, junk jewellery and other summer craft items, the festival will showcase easy to prepare and healthy summer food. Since the festival has been merged with the annual mango festival, it will be a great opportunity from growers across the country to display their home-grown, hybrid and traditional varieties of mango.
Delhi Tourism Ministry said “the festival will remain open between 11 AM to 10 PM, from June 26 to June 26”, listing Tilak Nagar as the nearest metro station.
Dilli Haat is an open air ‘bazaar’ that plays host to colourful regional, national, and international food plaza and craft fairs. Located just opposite the INA market, the plaza remains a major tourist attraction due to its multipurpose open ground facility and easy access from various locations around the city.
