1984 anti-Sikh riot victims: “AAP played with our emotions”

k j

The Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal who had promised the anti-Sikh riot victims to give them justice failed to keep his words. Moreover, the ruling regime of Kejriwal in Delhi has lost the report files of SIT.

Kejriwal’s political stunt has been exposed in front of the public as a year has passed but the culprits of the Sikh carnage are roaming free. The anti-Sikh riot victim families are up in arms against the Chief Minister of Delhi.

The national convener has been visiting Punjab and now trying to woo the voters of the state with his emotional tactics. However, he has been facing criticism during his tour especially by the anti-Sikh riot victims.

As per the information, a meeting of industrialists had been scheduled with Kejriwal in Ludhiana. The members of “Danga Peerat Society” held a protest against the liar who promised them to bring justice by putting the culprits of the riots behind the bars.

More than 100 protesters gathered outside the venue where Kejriwal had a meeting with the industrialists. They shouted slogans against him and accused the Aam Admi Party for playing with the emotions of the riot affected families.

The protesting families were accusing the muffler man for his involvement with the culprit Jagdish Tytler.

They were saying that the Chief Minister is hand in glove with Tytler as a picture of Kejriwal laughing with Tytler exposed him.

A protester told that the man who promised to put the culprit of Sikh carnage behind bars now holding the hand of Tytler and laughing with him. They also alleged that the AAP and Kejriwal played with their emotions during the polls in Delhi.

Moreover, the fingers rose at the Supreme Court lawyer and AAP leader, H S Phoolka for delaying the case since 1984. They also leveled the allegations against Phoolka and Kejriwal that they are the agents of Congress party. The picture which had gone viral on social media exposed them.

A protester said, “He has played with our emotions and now he is playing his cheap tactics to win the votes in Punjab. He is a Congress agent and working on the directions of the party which hatched the plan of 1984 anti-Sikh riots. ”

AAP on a self-promotion drive in Punjab

“Second time in a row after kicking off poll campaign in Punjab, Aam Aadmi Party has been seen spending crores of rupees in glorifying Delhi government and that too in complete violation of Supreme court’s verdict.”

sukhpal-singh-khaira

What began with celebrating first anniversary of Arvind Kejriwal government in Punjab, seems to have no end. During Kejriwal’s Punjab tour, AAP was again seen splurging massive amount on glorifying their deeds. Delhi government could have spent this amount on development work on the National capital but instead went on a self-promotion drive.

Advertising or paid news

It is pertinent to note that Delhi government has earmarked massive Rs 526 crores annually for advertising where as Punjab government’s ad budget is meager 27 crores. AAP has already spent more than Punjab government’s annual budget on highlighting their “achievements”.

sukhpal-singh-khaira-udg.jpg

AAP is issuing misleading ads in all the major newspapers of the region. Ads in the form news clippings are put with small caption ‘advt.’ at the bottom. Quotes, testimonials, illustrations and photos are incorporated to make these look authentic.

AAP government has been spending Public money on its advertising campaigns, which include campaigns across print, television, radio and outdoor publicity. AAP government selected around 50 prominent Daily newspapers across India in different languages for Kejriwal’s advertisement for his ‘big day’ of completion of one year in government.

Violation of Supreme Court

AAP has clearly violated the guidelines of the Supreme Court as Supreme Court had prohibited the use of photographs of political leaders in advertisements issued by any government and its agencies.

Supreme court in its verdict announced in May, 2015 has said that taxpayers’ money cannot be spent to build “personality cults” of political leaders and restrained ruling parties from publishing photographs of political leaders or prominent persons in government-funded advertisement. The apex court, however, permitted the use of photographs of the President, Prime Minister and Chief Justice of India.

Arvind Kejriwal government in last one year has spent hundreds of crores, and for one-year ‘celebration’ it spent exorbitantly. While voters of Punjab have already rejected Kejriwal and protests are marked his Punjab visit, he is trying to save his skin by resorting to massive advertising in the state.

Is propaganda more important than humanity?

“Kejriwal is the man whose heart beat for the poor and downtrodden people of India. But, this seems a veiled reality as a farmer went on to end his life, and AAP supremo continued with his rally and posing for TV cameras.”

Kejriwal is in tour of Punjab to understand the issues affecting farmers. Ahead of assembly polls in state, he has come up with another stunt to score political points. Away from reality, such poll gimmicks don’t last long and sooner or later truth will come fore, rusting Kejriwal’s false propaganda forever.

False Propaganda in Punjab

Being an agriculturalist state, farming community consist of huge vote bank in state. Releasing the big opportunity, Kejriwal is desperate to woo the large farming community. Meeting them in clusters to understand their woes, he is seen making false claims and tall promises.

But what he has forgotten that that the memories of farmer Ganjendra Singh’s suicide at an AAP rally is still fresh in people’s minds. Even as the wretched farmer ended his life by hanging himself to a tree, Delhi CM and AAP supremo Kejriwal continued making his speech on the dais whilst posing for TV cameras, exposing his utter disregard for the loss of a human life and insensitivity to the suffering of others.

Double standards of AAP

It was a matter of great regret that at a time when debt-ridden farmers weer putting an end to their precious lives, AAP MLAs, who are supposed to represent the interests of the ‘aam aadmi’ (common man), were demanding whopping 400% salary hike. It is crucial to note that the ‘Khas’ MLAs have petitioned the Delhi government in this regard, citing problems in meeting expenses that include the cost of maintaining an office in their constituencies, transportation and running a household.

Double standard of AAP legislatures was exposed as in the pretext of salary hike; this is what senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh said on this issue:

Jab desh mein itne farmers suicide kar rahe hai, aise samay par hum apni salary badhaye ye sahi nahi hai.”

(At a time when farmers are committing suicide in our country, it is not right for us to increase our salaries.)

Kejriwal begins blowing poll trumpet in Punjab

AAP supermo Kejriwal has mastered the art of creating a high-voltage buzz on social media. Displaying yet another act of poll gimmicks, he has been busy selling dreams of ‘Shining Punjab’.

article47083.jpg

On the onset of five-day visit of Punjab, AAP convener and Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal has been selling the hopes of ‘Shining Punjab’ to voters in Punjab ahead of assembly polls. This might have created a hype and false hope but a deep scrutiny of Kejriwal’s claims reveal that it is nothing but a tall story.

Gimmick ahead of polls in Punjab

Politician exaggerating things to draw public attention is nothing new. In order to gain public support, they promise big but when it comes to Kejriwal then there is no rational or logic behind what he states. A deep analysis of his past statement will make it clear that he only tries to play with the emotions of poor and hapless people for scoring political points.

Kejriwal is committed to replicate the Delhi model in Punjab. But someone needs to educate him about the vast difference of scale and magnitude between Delhi & Punjab. It is also pertinent here that Kejriwal promised to eradicate corruption from roots in Punjab. Now the crucial question arises here – was he able to eradicate corruption in Delhi?

Ironically, government of Delhi and its leaders got involved in various scams one after another.

Kejriwal only built castles in air by making tall and unrealistic promises. Adopting the same strategy, he is busy making even taller claims in state. With no rational behind his claims, all his claims will fall flat. Delhi voters might have realized the truth little late but fortunately the Punjab voters got a reality check one year ahead of polls.

Voters of Punjab show mirror to AAP

“Inexperienced, irresponsible Aam Aadmi Party managed a thumping victory in Delhi assembly with the help of tall promises. The dark reality of AAP government surfaced to Delhi voters soon as they promised moon and delivered nothing. Camping heavily in Punjab now, the voters in the state have got a reality check, a year ahead of polls.”

kejri_jal2.jpg

AAP was able to strike a chord with voters by promising a series of freebies. Never before in free India, voters would have seen such a manifesto filled with freebies. It was clearly meant to allure voters and unfortunately they fell trap to AAP’s false propaganda. But in utter disappointment, Kejriwal government didn’t even deliver even a single promise.

Promises Vs Reality

Getting a cue from disheartened Delhi voters, people of Punjab took it on themselves to show mirror to Aam Aadmi Party for their misdeeds. Poster highlighting AAP government’s misgovernance has been put up in the entire state during Kejriwal’s ongoing visit in the state.

The posters highlighted the promises made by Kejriwal and the subsequent failure in fulfilling them. ‘Ki Vaade Kite, ki Nibhaye’ (What promises were made, which was fulfilled) is how the election promises were scrutinized in the posters

From the tall promise of opening 500 schools in Delhi and providing government jobs to 35,000 eligible candidates and giving it to 1500 only, the poster left no major poll promise untouched. The issue of opening 500 ‘Mohalla Clinics’ as promised by Kejriwal was also taken up prominently in the poster.

Among other key issues, the promise of installing 16 lakh CCTV cameras for surveillance in Delhi was highlighted. Further, the promise of hiring 4000 doctors and 15,000 staff nurses in Delhi government hospitals was also carried prominently, hence hitting out at the Kejriwal run government in Delhi

The posters draws a comparison between what was promised in polls and what was not delivered. Kejriwal made tall promises in the run-up to assembly polls in Delhi but nothing has happened so far.

 Arvind Kejriwal only shrugs of its responsibility while passing the blame to others. He made tall promises but didn’t keep any of his words. It worked as precursor to Punjabi voters and deciding to throw him out from state, they have vented out their anger by highlighting Delhi government’s misgovernance.

 

Breakaway group of disgruntled AAP leaders

“The basic tenets on which the Aam Aadmi Party was formed and got overwhelming support from people gradually faded away. The principles like the concepts of ‘swaraj’, honesty, transparency as promulgated in the party’s charter were gradually lost in the labyrinth of power.”

aap_vantage_the-caravan-magazine_26-march-2015_0-700x457.jpg

Emerged on aftermath of Anna movement, many disillusioned Indians found a platform to fight corruption, maladministration and lawlessness. Many people joined in the anti-establishment wave but now many sincere workers who joined this great struggle initially are feeling ignored.

Party insiders feel that the party has deviated from its original ideals. Many disgruntled leaders are also “unhappiness” over its way of functioning and dictatorship style leadership. Be it ego clash or one man’s hunger for power, the infighting within the party has reached its ebb.

Aam Aadmi Party Volunteers Front

Many sincere volunteers of Aam Aadmi Party feel that the party has deviated from its ideals. The disappointed party volunteers have decided to form the new front to promote those ideals among the people. The most important thing is that, two suspended AAP MPs – Dharamvira Gandhi and Harinder Singh Khalsa – have lent their support to the new front.

It is noteworthy that the breakaway group has no group head or high command leading the way. Only an 11-member coordination committee has been formed to look after its working.

Deviation from basic tenets

AAP’s deviation from its basic principles was surfaced when two of the founding members and backbone of Aam Adami Party were expelled from the party. Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan were expelled for what was termed as indulging in gross indiscipline and anti-party activities.

AAP charged the two of trying to sabotage the election campaign in Delhi but interestingly waited for election to get over and only when Kejriwal became the chief minister that the party decided to expel them.

What was initiated as voice of dissent by launching ‘Swaraj Abhiyan’ by disgruntled AAP has taken new turn in Punjab where infighting within the party has come out in public in wake of remote control style of functioning by high command in Delhi and absence of any face of state unit.

 

 

 

Kejriwal shedding crocodile tears in front of Punjab farmers

kejri 2

“During the five days tour in Punjab, Arvind Kejriwal is trying to woo the farmers. This time he is shedding crocodile tears to win the support of the farmers. Moreover, he is also telling them that if the party forms the government in 2017, the farmers would be benefitted by the government. He is the same person who had seen a farmer committing suicide in his rally at Delhi. The person who is a murderer of a farmer in his own regime cannot solve the problems of the farmers of Punjab.”

The Chief Minister of Delhi is promising the farmers that if the party comes into power in 2017; adequate compensation would be given to the families of farm suicide victims in Punjab.

kejri 1

Kejriwal is the same person who had seen a farmer dying in his own rally held at Delhi. A Chief Minister who did not stop a farmer to commit suicide in his rally cannot understand the feelings of the farmers of Punjab.

He is baiting the farmers of Punjab by offering them lucrative incentives. The muffler man is personally meeting the farmers and asking them to vote for AAP in 2017. Look at the stunt being played by Kejriwal to woo the farmers. He failed in Delhi to address the issues of farmers and now on what grounds, he will help the farmers of Punjab.

Kejriwal-Road-show-at-Amritsar-3

Kejriwal befooling the farmers by saying that the compensation given to them is less as compare to the other states. The foolish Kejriwal has forgotten that the centre and state governments have properly compensated the farmers who had lost their crops because of the natural calamities.

Even in Sangrur, the residents held a protest against the Chief Minister for the incompletion of his works in Delhi. They say that the person who failed in Delhi cannot lead the state like Punjab.

Delhi is a small state and a person who is incapable in handling a small state like Delhi cannot rule in Punjab which is much bigger than the national capital.

 

Kejriwal trying to sell dreams in Punjab

“With no political base in state, Aam aadmi Party would be out of contest in the forthcoming assembly polls in Punjab. By selling dreams ahead of Delhi Polls, Kejriwal managed a decisive victory and now in Punjab he is playing even a dirtier game of first diving people and then showing false hope.”

Kejriwal-Road-show-at-Amritsar-3

Having realized their inability to connect with voters of Punjab, AAP is going all out to woo voters of Punjab. From making tall claims to unnecessary creating issues and diving people of cultural, there is no end Kejriwal’s desperation. He doesn’t even shy away from trying to disrupt peace & harmony of state for scoring political points.

Fails to keep promises

When Kejriwal was struggling against corruption with Anna Hazare, he had said he would never form a political party and contest an election. It is no surprise whether he kept his word or not? He made tall promises before Delhi polls. He promised free water, power and what not. Now he is blaming the Modi government and centre for not able to fulfill any of his promise.

Kejriwal failed miserably to implement his plans in Delhi and now he has chalked out a similar strategy. AAP also lack the blueprint for the state, as its state leaders are outsiders who lack any understanding of the psyche of people of Punjab.

 Replicating Delhi model in Punjab

It is noteworthy that AAP is contemplating to replicate the Delhi model of corruption free governance in Punjab. But they cannot befool people of Punjab by making such tall claims, as they were not able to eradicate corruption in Delhi on first hand. Ironically, government of Delhi and it leaders got involved in various scams one after another.

Status quo on suspended MPs of AAP

“It’s been nine months since two of AAP MPs were suspended and their future within party still hangs in limbo. Leave aside resolving the issues; Kejriwal has no intention to even meet the dissident leaders, though he plans to meet every citizen of state.”

Suspended AAP MPs, Harinder Singh Khalsa (L) and Dr. Dharamvir Gandhi (R)

After their debut in Delhi election AAP was very confident of replicating the success at National front. AAP contested on 432 parliamentary seats, highest by any political party. Of all the candidates, only 18 could hold on to their security and a whopping 414 AAP candidates from across the country had to forfeit their security deposit. When the entire country rejected AAP, Punjab was the only saving grace and party won four Loksabha seats.

Internal rift: suspension of MPs

Differences surfaced between the AAP central leadership and state unit and two of AAP’s MPs Dharamvir Gandhi from Patiala and Harinder Singh Khalsa from Fatehgarh Sahib were suspended for what was termed as indulging in anti party activities. The party leaders had to pay a price for raising their voice against the expulsion of founding figures – Yogender Yadav and Prashant Bhushan.

Dissent against dictatorship style leadership

Dharamvir Gandhi and Harvinder Singh Khalsa raised their voice against party leadership and dictatorship style functioning by national convener Arvind Kejriwal. They had to bear the brunt of Kejriwal’s arrogance as they were suspended from the party.

Despite their repeated attempts to meet party convener, Arvind Kejriwal to put across their point of view, there has been no heed to their pleas.

Direct confrontation with party leadership

It is relevant that Kejriwal is currently on Punjab tour to understand the issues afflicting state but he has no intention to understand the issues affecting his own party.

Failed to get their voice heard, the disgruntled MPs dared him to either speak to them if he believed in democracy or expel them without a hearing.

Display of sheer hypocrisy by Kajriwal, he gave statement in media that he wanted the suspended MPs to be back in party fold but refused to meet them later. It shows that he is hungry of power and has high ambitions but he cannot control his ego and arrogance

 

After Delhi, its Punjab’s turn for AAP’s tall claims

“After making a surprisingly spectacular debut in the Delhi elections last year, Aam Aadmi Party is eyeing Punjab, which is due for elections next year. The choice of state is no surprise but what is surprising is that Arvind Kejriwal is claiming if they come to power, they would govern the state of Punjab like Delhi”

o-ARVIND-KEJRIWAL-PUNJAB-facebook.jpg

Kejriwal drew public attention by lending a personal touch to his campaign. Person-to-person meetings and mohalla sabhas marked Aam Aadmi Party’s poll campaign. This might have worked in a city like Delhi but what is astonishing is that Kejriwal now wants to replicate the same model in Punjab. It doesn’t end here – he has major plans of visiting each and every village of Punjab.

Governance of freebies

In his one-year tenure as Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal has been more in news for blaming the center and Prime Minister than his own governance as Chief Minister. In fact he has no achievements to boast of in his tenure of one year as CM. As a cover up, he spent massive Rs. 526 crore in advertising to highlight his achievements.

It is relevant here, Kejriwal ahead of polls in Delhi made tall promises but majority of the promises proved poll plank. Now, he is planning to adopt the same strategy in Punjab – making tall claims and offering populist sops.

Kejriwal emerged as a wile politician who promised a ‘different’ politics in his campaigns. Projected himself as pro-poor, he was committed to eradicate corruption from roots. Kejriwal created a hope among Delhi voters in wake of elections but failing to deliver any of the promises, it all proved to be a lip service. Now, ahead of polls in Punjab, he has again ready with such tricks up in his sleeves

He is a shrewd politician and though he is new to politics, he has managed to draw people’s attention in no time. A man who is always in hurry, he has forgotten the principle that you cant straightway climb to top most step of ladder.
