I eat, sleep and breathe on controversies, (never) says Kejriwal

Controversies appear to be the middle name of Aam Aadmi Party convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He thrives on it. Since the moment in time the legendary RTI activist floated a party, he has been in the news whenever he wanted to be.

From ink and egg attacks to sleeping in Delhi cold on pavements as the CM, the Kejriwal list goes on and on. But let’s not go into the past (for the fear of AAPtards, as the online AAP army and the fanatics are affectionately called).

On December 12, there was a demolition drive by the Indian Railways in the Shakur Basti area where, as per latest reports, a six-month-old baby died due to the commotion caused before the demolition. The father, in an FIR, said that the baby didn’t die due to demolition drive, rather it was the hurry to vacate the place that resulted in the death.

Now, let’s see the Arvind Kejriwal reasoning. Indian Railways come under Centre (true); Centre is run by Modi (and no one else); Modi is doing all this inhuman acts (no one knows why); let’s attack him, anyway.

Not only this, the home minister of Delhi launched an inquiry which is commendable (or just fashionable to announce), and Kejriwal suspended three officials in a move that will establish him as the messiah.

For two days, his party cadre was seen distributing caps and flags of the party in the demolished slums when he was talking on the ‘human’ and ‘animal’ terms.

Let’s move on to December 15, when, in a sudden move, CBI allegedly raided the CM office in relation to his Principal Secretary Rajender Kumar Singh in an old bribery case.

Kejriwal went crazy over this. Yes, he did go crazy as his this tweet suggests where he calls the Prime Minister of the nation a ‘coward and psychopath’.

Obvious enough, the two incidents are totally unrelated. But, are they?

Let’s see the Kejriwal reasoning over this raid. CBI is a central agency (true); it has centre word in it (true); Centre has BJP-led government (yes it is); Centre controls CBI (not so sure about it); Modi heads centre and is plotting revenge as he ‘couldn’t stop me politically’ (yes, he has nothing else to do! Even the AAP guys will say he is traveling in planes all the time!).

So, I want to ask the Delhi CM regarding the demolition and what did he actually do as the CM of Delhi to ensure safety of the slum dwellers?

The Shakur Basti kids while talking to NewsGram, in all their innocence, said, “Ghar to unhe Kejriwal hi dilayega.” Will the CM ensure the fulfilment of his poll campaign promises of rehabilitation of the jhuggis and slums?

Perhaps no. The slums will rise again as they always do. Kejriwal will hop on to another controversy to blame Modi for anything, anyhow.

The humanitarian crisis that Kejriwal saw yesterday and day before, has given way to his personal crisis when the office of his PS was raided by the CBI.

He forgot the six-month-old baby and the hundreds of the Shakur Basti slum dwellers as it was a great opportunity to unleash his Twitter rants with ‘live-tweeting’ of the CBI raids.

As I was talking to a colleague over his absurd obsession with Modi, he remarked, “Kejriwal thinks that Modi wakes up in the morning and till he goes to bed, he makes plans to put Kejriwal in trouble as if he has nothing else to do.”

I could not agree more. Kejriwal’s obsession with ‘Modi is doing all this’ has gone so far off the limits that the limit is not visible. His latest tweet, quoted above, is a prime example that he doesn’t have the decency of language and protocol.

It will not change. He is achieving his purpose as the government had to respond to a question over the raids in Rajya Sabha that the raids were not on him as he is making it out to be but on an officer. Venkaiah Naidu clarified on the matter as well. However, as the legend of Kejriwal goes, he finds everyone to be blatantly lying.

I just want to know, from him and his supporters, what has the government decided on the ‘humanitarian crisis’ in Shakur Basti? Or is he waiting for the Delhi cold to rise and blame it on Modi that his ‘cold response to his tweet brought the chill in Delhi!’

Ok, that was absurd. But what isn’t?

The song “Kitna Chanda Jeb Mei Aaya” is a part of the upcoming documentary web series titled “Transparency: Pardarshita“, directed by Munish Raizada. The web series reflects upon the corruption and false promises of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

The song “Kitna Chanda Jeb Mei Aaya” has been fervently sung by the legendary singer Udit Narayan. It is penned down by the well-known lyricist Annu Rizvi and composed by Pravesh Mallick.

“Kitna Chanda Jeb Mei Aaya” is more than ‘just a song’ as it talks about the political funding and corruption done by the Arvind Kejriwal-led government AAP.

The reason why this song is different from other songs is that this song isn’t merely meant for entertainment. The song has the power to speak for the disappointment, anger and distress of the common man.

People had expected a lot from Aam Aadmi Party but alas, they were deceived and cheated by the party.

All political parties are mostly crowdfunded, but the citizens do not simply donate money for no reason. The citizen lives in the hope of witnessing development.

In the name of “chanda’, meaning donation, the citizens were cleverly looted by the party. AAP had removed its donors’ list from the website in June 2016, and that’s when they moved away from being responsible, accountable and transparent to the citizens.

Ironically, the core principles of the Aam Aadmi Party are: transparency, decentralisation of power, and vigilances. It’s evident how the party cannot keep up with its own principles and that is why it would be useless to expect AAP to fulfill the promises it made to the citizens.

“Kitna Chanda Jeb Mei Aaya” song aims to educate the people to not fall for the meaningless words and promises of the Aam Aadmi Party.
