Punishment without Trial- story of strange ways of Aam Aadmi Party

Ok, so the only state where Aam Aadmi Party has some buzz outside Delhi, the state convener of that state (Read Punjab) has been sacked from his job.

His crime: In an internal sting carried out by his own party’s volunteer/member (no one really knows details), he has been implicated of taking the bribe. In other words, he was allegedly accepting money for awarding a ticket for upcoming assembly elections (cash for ticket).

After seeing this sting video, Kejriwal got very upset. He refused to even meet the state convener. Kejriwal reportedly said to Chotepur: Go and record your defence to the state committee.

The party has sacked Chotepur even before allowing him a proper hearing. This is called Punishment Without Trial.

So, we see a few elements that are troubling:

  1. The so-called sting operation: It was not carried out by a media house or opposition or even by some remote unknown person. It was carried out internally. So, naturally, the video can not come in the public domain unless AAP releases it.

But, the party has shown no eagerness to release it, nor did it hear the ‘accused’ , BUT fired him!

Daytime robbery!

Chotepur says, he has been framed within the party.

2. Chotepur has been the party convener for 2 1/2 years, contested Lok Sabha elections from Gurdaspur and gave time and efforts to build the party in Punjab. Now, when he started showing discomfort about the way candidates are being chosen, it seems the party decided to frame him rather than simply asking him to step down. This serves the mission of Team Kejriwal:

  • AAP looks great and Sucha Singh looks in poor light.

But unlikely. The way Chotepur case has been done does not inspire confidence! Why was the matter not referred to internal Lokpal?

The party formed to start an era of transparent politics and end high command culture is now showing all the traits and vices of a typical Indian political party.

A senior from my alma mater Dr. Verma from Delhi commented: जिस पार्टी में लुच्चा सिंह और टुच्चा सिंह हो, वहां बेचारे सुच्चा सिंह को लात पड़ेगी ही.

Kejriwal has emerged as an ego-maniac person with narcissistic traits. He is rapidly transforming Aam Admi Party into a club of sycophants. In Punjab, AAP started more than a year ago with feverish pitch, but its graph is going down day by day due to self-goals:

  • The para shooters from Delhi. No proper local Punjab party structure has been created.
  • Gate crashers, para troopers and people of all hues and colors are seeking tickets and are being rewarded, creating unrest in volunteers and party workers who have been working since beginning of the party.
  • Inability and unwillingness to govern in Delhi, Kejriwal is selling fake dreams to the people of Punjab.

For Kejriwal, Punjab is the launching pad for national politics. But, means are as important as the goal, Mahatma Gandhi said.

The party is failing on its Suchita (righteousness) Index. And the decay has set in sooner than it would probably have.

Kejriwal exposed as a liar: BJP leader

He also accused Kejriwal of hatching a conspiracy to mislead people by playing the emotional card of apology

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, VOA
  • Arvind Kejriwal apologised to Bikram Singh Majithia
  • BJP leader says that this apology established himself
  • BJP also alleged that Kejriwal did nothing while state aced so many problems

A day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal apologised to former Punjab Minister Bikram Singh Majithia for alleging that he was involved in the drug trade, the BJP Delhi unit on Friday said he has exposed himself as a “liar”.

The BJP also alleged that he was doing nothing even while the people of the national capital were facing a number of issues due to sealing.

Addressing a press conference here, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Delhi unit President Manoj Tiwari said: ” What we have been saying for long has been proved today. He is a liar. He has apologised to Majithia for making false allegations against him.”

“He is on his way to apologise to (Union Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley ji and (Union Transport Minister) Nitin Gadkari ji for making false allegations,” the BJP leader said. Kejriwal is facing defamation cases in court for levelling allegations against Jaitley and Gadkari.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief on Thursday apologised to the Shiromani Akali Dal leader in Punjab for making allegations of involvement in the drug trade, following which the latter said that he will withdraw a defamation suit filed in an Amristar court.

Tiwari, who represents the northeast Delhi constituency in the Lok Sabha, accused Kejriwal of misleading the people over the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital.

BJP MLA Vijender Gupta accused the AAP chief of only rendering “lip service” on the sealing drive and urged the Chief Minister to hold an all-party meeting with the Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring committee overseeing the drive.

“Since December last, Kejriwal is only doing lip service on the issue of sealing drive. He has done nothing to stop it,” Gupta, the Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, said.

He said that though Lt Governor Anil Baijal cleared the file for notifying 351 roads in the capital on February 8, the matter is still pending. “Why hasn’t he (Kejriwal) notified the 351 roads in the last 45 days?” Gupta asked.

BJP leaders are calling this apology a gimmick.

He also accused Kejriwal of hatching a conspiracy to mislead people by playing the emotional card of apology. Gupta warned the Monitoring Committee members not to act outside the law and said: “If the monitoring committee acts against law, then the BJP will oppose it.”

“We are going to inform the three municipal corporations of Delhi not to follow the commands of the Monitoring Committee if it goes against the law,” he said. “The MCDs should approach the court and also make Kejriwal a party,” the BJP leader added. IANS
