Examination of Kejrival on the anvil of morality


By: Parmanand Pandey (Advocate, Supreme Court & General Secretary of Indian People’s Congress)

It hardly needs to be underlined that Arvind Kejrival got into politics on the high grandstanding of morality. At one point of time, he was considered the epitome of morality. Thousands of people from all walks of life were drawn towards the Anna movement. They were all coming spontaneously on their own. Youngsters found the mirror image of  Mahatma Gandhi in Anna Hazare and  Kejrival was the ideal

Arvind Kejriwal was virtually guiding the movement with the consent of Anna Hazare. People were attracted towards Anna and Kejrival because they were fighting for the noble cause of ridding the corruption from the society and governance.

There is no doubt that the whole country is fed- up with stinking corruption in all occupations. Those having proximity with authorities are having the field day. Politicians, businessmen and bureaucrats are all on the money making spree. In this atmosphere of gloom and darkness, Anna Hazare and Kejrival came like a spark and ray of hope.

When Kejrival formed a party drifting from his mentor and Guru Anna Hazare, most of the supporters of the Anna movement were, however, disappointed. The reason being Kejrival’s announcement of floating the political party known as the ‘Aam Adami Party (AAP). This was like foreclosing the space and scope for civil movement.

Kejrival has been saying  from the housetops that he was not entering the politics for the sake of ruling the state or the country. His main aim was to purge the corruption and serve the people. He appears; nevertheless, to be completely oblivious of the fact that once you enter the politics you have also play as per the rules of games of the politics. That is what he has precisely done during the campaigning and governance of the state of Delhi.He gave the inducements of providing subsidy on water and electricity bills and was able to successfully sell the idea. Initially he appeared to be a lot different from other politicians but now he is like one of them with hardly any difference.

I take his opportunity to point out the duplicity of Arvind Kejrival on one point. He has said number of times that the candidates for contesting the elections would not be imposed from above. A referendum in the public will be the criterion to select a candidate. Now he must owe an explanation to the country that as to when any referendum was observed for the selection of 54 candidates whose names have been declared to contest the ensuing Lok Sabha elections? Until yesterday Mr. Ashutosh was the anchor of the Television channel but today he is an AAP candidate from Chandni Chowk of Delhi.  By the way, whose opinions were sought for Raj Mohan Gandhi, Kumar Vishwas or Savita Bhatti before announcing their candidature? This has nothing to comment on the merit and integrity of the candidates but this certainly speaks of the character and conduct of Kejrival. Don’t take people of the country for ride by pontificating because by not observing those sermons in personal life you can fool some people for sometime but not all people for all times.
