Kejriwal: A Party is Not a Nation
This is not a rebuttal to http://missionsharingknowledge.com/we-need-arvind-kejriwal-for-the-nation-to-be-on-its-toes/
Just wanna make my views a bit stronger with http://missionsharingknowledge.com/kejri-wall-its-wrong-time-to-ring-the-bell/
The question is, how much important Arvind Kejriwal is in the context of ‘India Now’ and how much time we will spend talking about Aam Aadmi Party and clicking and sharing on Social Media Pages! Should we create the buzz again or should we consider “Let it be, I am not interested in aam politics anymore”. Let us talk only the leadership issues.
Taking an example: When Mamata Banerjee won few seats in West Bengal, in the first phase of TMC days. She tried to work on few areas on political and social development. She failed, because only three seats her party had. So, she continued with her ‘Bandh’ formula and continued blaming the leading party for creating obstacles. When she took the power she used the 24×7 media coverage to promote all her daily initiatives and the outcome… West Bengal is still struggling for investments. CPM’s corrupted people changed their color and started promoting new party by dominating the same common people.
The story of Aam Aadmi Party if quite different, the initiative was in Delhi, the capital. The city alone covers more than 60% of media coverage in India.
Kejriwal too became the attention seeker by many means. The party got the power and started complaining that, the system is not co-operating with them. Delhi Police ignored a leader in-front of the media; parliament is not giving value for their proposed solution Lokpal Bill and many more. He complained, he requested, he went for Dharna! I mean it’s hilarious! Imagine Sheila Dixit on hunger strike, coz a policeman ignored one of her leader in public!
The people were different, the location and time was different but the tone was same.
Is that you call, a leader?
Or you call it a ‘Gandhi Factor’! For every problem, there is one solution, “Hunger Strike”! Like Arvind Kejriwal has his Dharna! Do you appreciate such leadership?
A good man is not always a good leader. Mother Teresa could be the PM of India. She could do her best effort for the poor people! I agree that country should consider corruption-control policies as major issue, but as a common man, tell me who have more contribution on anti-corruption issues? Is it Anna or Kejriwal? As a social activist, Anna can stay with anti-corruption issues as long as people really understand the need of corruption free country. It is too much justifiable when a party leader stays with the visions of his party. What if a CM stays with the same? A CM has many more problems to solve; a leader has many more things to introduce in the system. Corruption is one of the ancient social issues that can only solved by a joint approach of awareness creation and strict policies. A CM means a power. If a CM start complaining on other powers that create a negative impact on the society.
Kejriwal was becoming a media food. You have him with morning breakfast, lunch and dinner. He is always available on news. He can be in Janta Darbar or in Dharna! Development is not something you need to ‘expose’. It is a process with a clear outcome visibility. For any government, I suggest, it is more important to make people feel, their life is developing.
A minister who will meet the people and get suggestions make the process slower. I think, before his appointment he forgot to do his homework. He could gather suggestions from online platform.
Mahila Suraksha Dal: After the 14th February 2014, the proposal became unrealistic.
No on FDI: I don’t want to make a debate on the topic. Ban on FDI-Retail in a capital is base-less.
Loksabha Election Result: People don’t like Congress and some people don’t like BJP. Who is left? The story behind vote share of Aam Aadmi Party is that simple.
IIT Factor: IIT had common print media coverage on Kejriwal. Kejriwal went to jail; IIT stopped tagging their beloved student.
Expectation on high and Fuss: Wanna see? Here are six day reaction story on Kejriwal.
“ Day 1: I love Kejriwal.
Day 2: I hate Kejriwal, he’s a Congress agent
Day 3: I love Keriwal, he gave free water!
Day 4 : I hate Kejriwal, he took Govt cars,
Day 5 : I love Kejriwal, he came out with a anti-corruption number.
Day 6: Who Kejriwal? Politics? No, there’s an India-New Zealand match on right now!”
A poor party demonstration especially when the party has such a strong foundation!
Same on the foundation issues:
Day1, 2, 3…100: Corruption should be sentenced to death.
And a last question to Kejriwal, as a common man: Dear sir, you wanted to be in the system, people supported you. You are unable to manage the power of Delhi CM, You are not able to manage your party and you are dreaming to be the PM of India?
Someone said it right, ‘Dream Big’.
Now you tell me, can the common man make his image better anymore?
