Modi factor won’t work in Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal

Arvind Kejriwal

Campaigning by the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi won’t help the BJP in Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal said Wednesday.

“Modi factor won’t work in Delhi because the people are smart enough to understand that if BJP wins, their CM (chief minister) would be Vijay Goel (Delhi BJP chief) and not Modi,” Kejriwal said.

Modi is scheduled to address a rally here Sep 29.

Kejriwal, an activist-turned-politician, said the BJP was copying the AAP’s election campaign.

“Whatever we do, be it door-to-door campaign or advertisements on auto-rickshaws, the BJP does the same 10 days later.”

Kejriwal was speaking at the launch of a survey which claims that over 40 percent voters in Delhi want AAP to come to power and Kejriwal to be the next chief minister.

Elections to the Delhi assembly are scheduled in November.

  1. A Tale of Two Countries

    China

     Bo Xilai was a member of Central Politburo of the Chinese Government ( equal to a Central Cabinet Minister in India )

     He was arrested a year back and tried for corruption / taking bribes / misusing official position. Not granted bail ( unheard of in China )

     Trial lasted 5 days – at the end of which , he was convicted , and punished for 20 years of con-current prison terms

     He can appeal but in China , there is no precedence of a higher court setting aside , an order of a lower court !

    India

     Of our 4500 MPs / MLAs , approx 1500 ( 30 % ) , have criminal cases pending against them

     Of these , some 600 have , “ Serious Criminal Cases “ ( murder / rape etc ) pending against them

     A few hundred are already “ Convicted “ and have appealed in higher courts

     All are out on bail and attending Lok Sabha / State Legislatures

     Our Supreme Court considered this ( freedom ) as “ Unconstitutional / Illegal “ and passed an order that MPs / MLAs , who have received punishments of 2 years or more , cannot be granted bail ( even if they have appealed ) and must stay in jail. Neither can they vote , nor contest an election

     Central Government filed a “ Review Petition “ in Supreme Court , which refused to change its earlier ruling

     So , as expected , Central Government decided to bring out an Ordinance to nullify Supreme Court verdict !

    What Next ?

     Within 2 months , Ordinance must be converted into a proper law , by passing it in Lok Sabha

     Since ALL parties have “ Criminal “ MPs / MLAs , you bet , the law will be passed unanimously !

    Voters of India

    The only political party which is not a party to this heinous conspiracy against Democracy and therefore against the People of India , is the Aam Admi Party ( not having a single MP / MLA so far ? )

    Let us vote it to power . That is the only way to test their promise of a corruption-free government

    May be we can still stop this rape of our Motherland !
