Aam Aadmi Party Thread

Recommended Posts

NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party, which has created a nationwide stir by winning 28 of the 70 seats in Delhi in a stunning debut, is likely to form the government next week. AAP, which is carrying out a referendum to get "a sense of what the people want", is expected to announce its decision on Monday. Its assertive founder Arvind Kejriwal, credited with changing the political discourse in the country, told ET that "the people want us to deliver" and providing "effective governance is no rocket science". The decision to form a minority government backed by Congress, which has eight MLAs, is driven by the overwhelming response from people who want AAP to assume power in Delhi and deliver effective governance. Kejriwal said more than 75% of people in the Capital want AAP to assume office. "Forming the government and delivering on our promises will reap huge benefits for AAP in Lok Sabha polls." Asked if his party would form the government in Delhi now that Congress has extended unconditional support, Kejriwal said: "We will take a final call after our ward meetings through the weekend, but there is an overwhelming support and pressure from people." Kejriwal added that his party, in all likelihood, will take up the challenge and form the government. Although Kejriwal personally is averse to joining hands with Congress or BJP, he said recent developments - Congress' unconditional support for AAP initiatives and surging popular demand - have forced a rethink. "The stand taken by Congress will be tracked by voters in the months to come in case it retracts," he said. Some senior AAP members have voiced apprehension that forming the government could take up all their energy and resources, leaving them little time for the general elections. Kejriwal, however, said it would be a challenge that may throw up pleasant surprises for the fledgling party in the 2014 elections. "I may not be able to travel as much once I assume office, but the actions of our government in Delhi will reverberate in other states, bringing greater support for AAP and its politics," he said. Asked if he is daunted by the responsibility of governing, given that most party MLAs are first-timers, Kejriwal said running an effective government needs political will. "I have been a part of the government and have seen from close quarters how bureaucrats and politicians deliver when they wish to. It is no rocket science," he said. Delhi is yet to get a government as it threw up a fractured mandate where BJP fell four short of majority at 32 seats and AAP came in a close second at 28.

Good move indeed :hatsoff::hatsoff: It was very clever of AAP to go for mood of the people in taking support from Congress, this will force congress to be extra careful in taking back support for filmy reasons...Now all those detractors who were shouting that AAP is afraid of governance and they are meant for protest will shut up :haha:

Outside support from Congress is always a recipe for disaster. They are forever ready to pull the support and will never let government function independently. To add to this, a lot of the AAP voter base voted for them on their anti-Congress agenda. AAP risks losing the support of this section of the electorate

I think that's what is going to happen. AAP won't care much about Congress and will take the decisions as they please. If Congress takes support back they'll be blamed. It's "conditional" support AAP has taken. Days for giving conditional support are over. Now you take "conditional" support . AAP changes the rules of the game :hatsoff:

So is AAP the B-team of Congress or is it the other way round? Congress being the B-team of AAP. AAP told that they are fighting against corruption and targeted Congress but only to unite with them post-elections. A lot of hidden agenda.

It's a good move man' date='don't be critical[/quote'] the single biggest reason for AAP's success in these elections was their extremely loud and strong anti-Cong stand and now they are joining hands with Cong to form the Govt. The criticism, loss of image and loss of support from the people will only just begin for AAP.

They are not joining hands with congress, as you are alleging..They are just taking external support from congress..Its not like congress gets to have a say in policies and administration..

In normal circumstances that should happen. But given it is Indian public who forgets many things quickly and can be influenced easily with right words/fear , it's not a guarantee at all.

Everytime for the last 20 years the people of Delhi only had 2 options - BJP or Cong. Now suddenly there came this new party which promised to change every thing and shake up the system. It ran its campaign on how corrupt the "regular" parties, especially congress, were and then after the elections it joins hands with Cong to form the Govt. We can see from the very fact that Cong got a mere 8 seats as to how very angry the people of Delhi were so now that AAP has joined hands with them, I do expect a backlash from the people.

either you don't know much about politics or you just don't want to accept reality. AAP has proven everyone that it is not at all different from any other party. Period.

Practical decision from AAP, but governing with the heap of garbage called Congress is going to be challenging. Just wish AAP had won enough seats to implement its own agenda without having to worry about any "alliances"

They are not uniting with congress. They will only form a minority govt. Congress will only vote for them if they are asked to prove majority.

In the world of politics, you never get unconditional support. I think AAP got overwhelmed with unexpected success and did not want to let go the opportunity, which is understandable. It will be interesting to watch how things unfold from here.

Nothing unethical about forming govt in Delhi with Cong: Kejriwal Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday that there was nothing unethical about the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) forming the government in Delhi, and reiterated that the rookie party would announce its decision on Monday after hearing from the people of the city. Arvind Kejriwal, convenor of Aam Aadmi Party, waves to supporters from his party HQ after winning against long-serving chief minister Sheila Dikshit in New Delhi. (AFP) In an apparent reference to the BJP’s remarks about AAP taking Congress support to form government, Kejriwal told HT, “It is a political question now… whether or not we form government … there is nothing unethical about it now.” http://www.hindustantimes.com/specials/coverage/myindia-myvote/chunk-ht-ui-myindiamyvote-delhi/nothing-unethical-about-forming-govt-in-delhi-with-cong-kejriwal/sp-article10-1164574.aspx
It's all started with AAP being an inconsistent party and changing their positions suitably

Didn't they win those votes through anti-congress agenda? What credibility will be left after AAP forms a government with Congress? All politicians are the same... shameful
And muslims appeasement policy. That's the biggest Congress's concern that their core vote bank is switching. Communal Violence Bill is being used to address that problem and bring back these vote bank.

Of course, they are. They are agreeing to go with the people/party whom they primary started out against (Congress party). It's AAP true face which is coming out, nothing but a proxy of Congress to split its anti votes.

he missed the small fact that the single biggest reason for Kejriwal's success in these elections was his anti-cong stand and now he's joining hands with them.

I'm a big believer in not letting the good be the enemy of the best, especially wrt politics. I'd want AAP to form a govt with whatever support. They have the option to back off if their core principles are compromised and more importantly an opportunity to walk the talk.

There are so many things wrong with this paragraph!! 1. Political parties are criticized for their actions. Everything they do is analyzed and interpreted in many ways. Especially the new parties are closely observed and criticized. Can't take the criticism? Don't enter politics. But stop whining, please. 2. In democracy, people play the central role. Stop blaming the people for your difficulties. Stop whining. 3. The people of this country have given you some unexpected leverage. Make the best use of it you can. Stop whining like a grumpy cat. 4. The fact remains that you got your votes through anti-congress campaigns and now you have no shame in teaming up wit the same party. Don't blame the people for that, you idiots! Stop whining.

This is fan post and supporters have every right in questioning if the criticism seems to be biased and motivated....! Also who are blaming common people here, post is about those who are politically inclined people who are hell bent on criticism..And no one has given anyone unexpected leverage, we all vote because we want them to work for us, it is not the other way round.
