Kejriwal Getting Ready For The Road Ahead
Total Articles: 52
After the successful Delhi elections, he's drawing up plans for the 2014 Lok Sabha election. Arvind Kejriwal is upbeat with recent feat and getting reading for tough road ahead. He has come a long way from pleading with the government to legislate the Lokpal Bill to lukewarm response. Getting a hold of the system and working around it seemed to be his strategy after all many of the leaders were themselves face corruption charges. Kejriwal is pinning his hope on the 1.5 crore people of Delhi and the power of having the right intentions.
Kejriwal is depending on his formulation of swaraj and decentralization to reign in Delhi. He strongly asserts that the present system is incapable of delivering good governance. He plans to implement a system that no longer depends on individuals but works by itself. He says, “Why do we have to approach MLAs for ration cards, cleaning waste or improving roads? These things should happen on their own”.
Arvind Kejriwal strongly stresses that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) does not have an alliance with Congress in Delhi. They are merely taking the offered support, but it's not an alliance. When Congress suddenly claimed it would give AAP outside support, Congress was simultaneously criticizing AAP for not taking on responsibility. But Kejriwal asserts that he had no idea that there would be such overwhelming opinion for AAP to form the government. Kejriwal recently told media persons that AAP taken the support of Congress at face value and implement AAP’s manifesto for which people have voted for them.
Kejriwal’s concept of swaraj requires the first step, which is legislation. Getting the law passed in the Assembly will be AAP’s biggest challenge.
The next step would require implementation. Delhi has 272 wards, which Kejriwal plans to divide into an average of 10 parts into 2,720 mohallas. Demarcating the mohallas on the map will be a huge exercise for AAP. Each mohalla will have a small secretariat with one or two employees after which there will be local elections to select a representative, whose only job will be to convene monthly meetings and to get decisions implemented through the local Mohalla sabha secretariat.
There is very strong buzz about AAP across the country. Hordes of people are coming for AAP’s meetings. There may be some rural areas, where media outreach is absent or restricted, where AAP might face a problem. Kejriwal said that they have decided that AAP will field candidates where ever they find worthy people. Therefore, it's not possible to say whether AAP will contest 20 seats, 200 or 400 in the upcoming elections.
What AAP has achieved in Delhi will affect people in every village in the country. When Delhi holds its assembly session in Ramlila Maidan, it will fire the imagination of the whole country. If Delhi does away with the lal batti culture, it will be a sure sign for people in other parts of the country to ask their ministers to follow AAP’s lead. He wants to set the stage for other leaders in the country. By refusing to stay in a bungalow and instead live in a flat, he is raising expectations out of other leaders to live like the aam aadmi. It is, therefore, by AAP’s performance at the ground level that Kejriwal plans to launch his campaign in the Lok Sabha election.
