AAP stormed into the Delhi Assembly with an unprecedented majority some 100 days back. Since then, Arvind Kejriwal and his party have remained a hot button topic across all platforms of media.

The party has gone through a lot in these 100 days. The internal conflict, a very popular central government as a comparison, and Delhites’ own trust issues with the party has shaped AAP’s centenary of 24 hour days.

NewsGram talked to a few people in the city to gauge the mood of the masses.

Promises have not been delivered at a desired pace.

Babu Ram Negi, a businessman thinks the party has not performed as per its promises so far. “The problem of law and order is not being dealt with properly. Some sort of compromise must be reached with the center on the issue of Delhi Police. AAP cannot keep blaming BJP for things and has to come up with a solution.”

Average performance due to internal conflict.

Mohit and Harsh, IT professionals, feel that AAP government has done an average job. “It’s a 50-50 thing. Some good things have happened alongside major goof ups. AAP has to clean its internal politics and structure,” Harsh says.

Mohit too feels something similar. “The practicality needed for execution of policies I feel, is lacking from AAP right now.”

Some students between sips of tea and puffs of cigarette told NewsGram that they feel the government can perform much better if the hindrance from center isn’t there. “The center and state are ideologically different. One bats for the common man while the other for Hindutva,” feels Dhananjay Sharma.

However, for Shivangi Gautam, the concerns are more practical. “It’s a good thing. Subsidizing water and electricity. But how feasible are such subsidies in the long run? ”

Mukesh Kumar, a drinks stallwalah however feels that no matter which government is in power, his wellbeing is based on his hard work. “Kamaenge toh khaenge, nahi toh kon Sarkar haath me khana de kar jaegi?” (If I work I’ll eat. Government will not give me food on a plate.)

“I don’t think the party is doing as much about the corruption issue, as it did the last time. Anti-corruption number is also not very effective,” Says Rabindra, a driver in the capital.

Given all practical considerations, 100 days are too early to give a mandate on AAP’s work in the capital, and the party is following a slow-and-steady path after last time. However, the fast paced people of the capital have started showing signs of impatience.

  • 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
