AAP KA SANDESH
Business Standard, December 16, 2013
This refers to the article “Scaling up the AAP”(December 14/15). The message sent out by AAP from Delhi is being deciphered by different people in different ways. Naturally, the responses have been diverse. From Rahul Gandhi who said ‘Congress has to learn a lot from AAP’, to N R Narayana Murthy who said ‘What Arvind(Kejriwal) has done is that he has redefined what is possible’ and added that he would still ‘Bat for Nilekani’ the politically and financially wise who responded to the AAP challenge did not leave the aam aadmi wiser by their responses. But their quick comments are, nevertheless, indicative of the churning Indian Political System is undergoing, post-AAP uprise.
The Indian Aam Aadmi has asserted his right to make his voice heard, thanks to the conduit provided by AAP. Let us not compel AAP to show the results they apparently promised. Now, it is the turn of the common man(Famously referred to as “WE THE PEOPLE” in the preamble of the Constitution of India) to organise, wherever they are, and force the legislators at all levels to uphold the spirit of the Constitution and bring back ethics and morality to governance.
If aam aadmi and the BPL(Businessmen-Politician-Lawyers) Combine which is managing the show in Delhi take the message sent out by AAP through the medium of broomstick seriously, and act in a proactive manner, during the short period left for Elections, 2014, several stages of pre-stabilization experiments of India Growth Story can be skipped. Here, all political parties(Right, Left and Centre) have a responsibility to participate. Time is running out.
