through the India Against Corruption (IAC) movement.In this task he had attracted not only veteran social activist and crusader Anna Hazare but also some of the brightest young men and women of India However against Hazare’swishes he formed a political party But here again soon after capturing power he threw out other co-founders like Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav Kejriwal even campaigned in Bihar for Lalu Yadav the first major politician in India to have been convicted of corruption and rendered ineligible to contestelections for six years In fact there are serious allegations that AAP distributed party tickets in Delhi and elsewhere by seeking crores of unaccounted rupees And many of his ministers as Kapil Mishra told the media on Sunday are facing serious corruption charges Ironically Kejriwal the crusader against corruption has not even brought out a suitable law to have a Lokpal in Delhi so far How many of us have tried to bother over the implementation of Kejriwal’s 70-point agenda that was promised during the last Delhi Assembly election What has been the progress in the fields of transport roads and sanitation areas which are clearly under the jurisdiction of the Delhi state government Is there free WiFi in market places He has kept his words on subsidies on electricity and water arguably the cheapest in the country but this is populist politics unaffordable economics in the long run In a way cheap power and water in Delhi is nothing but a bribe to the people to give votes to AAP If there is anything Kejriwal has obsessed over it is his insatiable ambition to become Prime Minister of India But without consolidating in Delhi AAP has been trying to expand its bases in otherimportant states though the party as recent Assembly elections proved failed miserably in this task Kejriwal has invariably been in the headlines for attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government He has described Modi as "a coward and psychopath" Kejriwal seemsto reach every troubled spot in the country to carry out his "hate politics" against Modi Kejriwal is too talented a person to not understand that Delhi is not a full-fledged state and that it essentially remains a Union Territory despite having an elected chief minister a la Puducherry For him the issue is not simply bureaucratic or legalistic; it has serious political dimensions — in fact it is essentially political Therefore one sees a discernible pattern in what Kejriwal has been focussing on ever since he became chief minister He is simply not interested in his job as the Chief Minister of Delhi; he wants to use his present position in such a way that the country starts looking at him as a prospective prime ministerial candidate His ultimate aim is to rule fromDelhi but not as chief minister Viewed thus Kapil Mishra’s allegations against him on Sunday could not have come at a worse time In the wake of aseries of poll reversals this briberyallegation will surely dent Kejriwal’s image considerably After all Mishra has done exactly what Kejriwal does —portray himself as a victim and target hisrivals on the basis of unproven and non-provable charges Like Beppe Grillo of Italy Kejriwal may have been hailed as a messiah by an electorate fed up with mainstream parties seen as corrupt exploitative and incapable of good governance But Kejriwal should realise that Grillo’s has been zero-to-hero-to-zero phenomenon Written by Priyanka Sharma | Mumbai | Published: February 26 2017 9:50 am Shah Rukh Khan received the 4th National Yash Chopra Memorial Award he

new avatar finally joins Aam Aadmi Party The answer is a big no There are for three reasons why: First there already exists a huge pro-AAP wave if not a tornado that sweeps across almost all regions of Punjab at this point of time Second the Badals and the Majithias are on the verge of getting blown away by anti-incumbency And third the Congress which could have otherwise been the natural claimant for power in Punjab finds the AAP campaigns too hot to handle and is in no position to pull back Arvind Kejriwal’s party that has already surged miles ahead Sidhu’s entry into the AAP will at best work as an added psychological booster in favour of AAP and a further demoralising blow to the BJP and the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on the other To understand all this better you need to take a look at what most of the opinion polls have been saying about Punjab lately The survey done by VDP Associates gives AAP 100 of the total 117 assembly seats with 461percentvote share The SAD-BJP combine in sharp contrast might not bag more than 13 seats with a vote share of 26percent And the Congress with a vote share of 24percent would find itself placed at the bottom with just 3 seats Former BJP MP Navjot Singh Sidhu PTI Another survey conducted by Huffington Post C-Voter presents more or less the same picture It gives 94-100 seats to the AAP The SAD-BJP combine are on the other hand projected to get 8 to 14 seats And the Congress would have to remain third with 6 to 12 seats India Trending Now has also conducted an opinion poll According to this survey the AAP would get 85 to 89 seats with a vote share of 39 percent to 43percent The SAD-BJP alliance would bag anything between 9 to 13 seats with a vote share of 21-25percent This survey which was conducted in March this year however gives the Congress 16 to 20 seats with a vote share of 29-33percent The opinions of opinion polls might not be considered sacrosanct especially in the aftermath of Delhi and Bihar results But multiple opinion polls giving two-third majority to a first-timer is indeed unprecedented Those who claim to know Punjab inside out believe that the number of seats projected by the pollsters this time might not necessarily hit the bull’s eye but their general direction of projections looks correct Jayesh Bhatia a young Punjabi who often writes in Quora talked to many of his friends and relatives back home to unfold the so-called mystery of the APP’s political blitzkrieg in Punjab Here is how he sums up his findings in telegraphic language: "Arvind Kejriwal is loved by people More on the ground Even more on the fields The hate that you see on the social media is politically funded/backed Who will not love a CM who gives you 100percentcompensation for crop loss and basic amenities at nominal costs Many people hate Kejriwaldue to misinformation campaign done by the BJP in particular" The young Punjabi further writes: "AAP has a strong volunteer network The volunteers work tirelessly to spread Delhi Government’s works comparing it with highly inefficient BJP-SAD group This strategy took AAP way ahead of Congress which was slowly reviving under Captain Amarinder" Bhatia’s exuberance apart it is pertinent to note that even in the Modi wave of 2014 the AAPhad bagged 4 of the total 13 Lok Sabha seats in the state And if you break the figures down across Assembly segments you would notice that they had beaten all adversaries in 35 constituencies and came second in another 25 places That was in itself a commendable feat by a new-comer party And remember this had happened before Kejriwal’sspectacular victory in the Delhi state elections Now like it or not the AAP is a much stronger force Let’s now get back to the issue of Navjot Singh Sidhu who is according various TV channels slated to formally declare his independence from the BJP and accept membership of the AAP on August 15 No doubt the AAP will further be bolstered with the arrival of an "eminently recognisable face" in Punjab That Sidhu is a fiery speaker apart from being a crowd-puller and an entertainer Punjab will have to wait to hear from the horse’s mouth till the Independence Day And in the meantime guns will go probably silent in any case with Kejriwaldoing vipassanaat a Himalayan tourist spot close to the abode of Dalai Lama in Dharamkot The BJP and the Badals can afford to relax for ten days Yes can you image what happens when Kejriwalgoes silent It’s perhaps time for wit and humour to prosper on the otherwise nasty political front Here is how Firstpost’s Bikram Vohra argues in his inimitable witty style: "The only logical reason why Kejriwal is doing this is wreck everyone’s happiness The media for instance will be so badly hit that they might have to retrench staff as TRPs/sales fall Reading a newspaper or site with nothing from Kejriwal is akin to a chicken party without any chicken in it"wearing big sunglasses, Poverty lines were invented for
