It is a miraculous mandate. The people of Delhi who made it possible deserve huge appreciation. The people of Delhi seem to have made up its mind to excuse AAP of its over ambitious run for the national election 2014. The leadership of the winning party should henceforth avoid venturing outside of its capacity and reach in near future.
It’s a historic achievement for a party which has its genesis in the recent Anna Movement against corruption. The experiment to form a political entity with transparent funding along with zero tolerance against corruption seem gaining mass support. The people of Delhi are proud to be governed by a party which desisted from funding its election campaign from questionable sources. It has been collecting donation from people all around the world. Some opposition parties are going gung ho about credibility of some donors particularly about funds amounting to two croress from four donors. No surprises, the same accusing parties don’t believe in transparent funding methodology.
It’s too much to expect similar possibility in Arunachal Pradesh or any other state. But the spark ignited at Delhi may someday set ablaze our conscience. As a law abiding citizen, it should be our endeavor to support such a development with potential for far reaching change in the entire polity. If not possible to contribute in any manner, at least we can contribute fund by way of donation. The donation can be given at the official website of the party where all the information of donors are readily available.
We hope someday we get to see true democracy in its undiluted form as espoused and represented by AAP. The party should first set an example in Delhi. After that it can spread its tentacles around the country and provide an alternative clean political party to choose from.
In the election held on 4th December 2013, the mandate was fractured. No party could master a simple majority in the 70 member state assembly. In 2013 the citizen of Delhi surprised all by showing confidence in Arvind Kejriwal led new political entity Aam Admi Party (AAP). It couldn’t secure majority on its own but it dented the fortune of many established political parties.
The re-election slated on 7th February 2015 is hotly contested. AAP is vigorously attempting to woo the voters and the BJP too is armed to teeth whereas the Congress seems to be a spent force. BJP is fielding Kiran Bedi as its Chief Ministerial candidate whereas Ajay Makan is the face of Congress in this election. The BJP is banking on the nationwide Modi wave to cast a spell on its cosmopolitan voters.
The voters of Delhi may pull off a surprise mandate again this time in contrast to the wisdom of psephologists and political pundits. We as citizen of the country expect the people of the national capital to be an example for the country as a whole. It is expected that they show maturity and acumen by choosing good legislators with good intention. It must choose a party which embody change and transparency. It can lead from the front to choose a Govt which stand for the aspiration and hope of all including the downtrodden.
India is hosting Barrack Obama as its chief guest on the occasion of its 66th Republic Day commemoration parade in New Delhi. He is the first US president to be the chief guest of this ceremonial parade which is a yearly routine.
This year it has much significance since it is the first Republic Day celebration after Narendra Modi assume the office of the Prime Minister of India. The presidential visit has also contributed much buzz in the media circle though security issue has dominated the airwaves since the arrival of Barrack Obama.
Hope, the visit would usher in new heights in bilateral relation and cooperation. Perhaps the visit would go beyond paparazzi around the leader of the most powerful country in the world.
The APPSC seem perennially involved in one controversy or other. The latest one seem to have invoked much resentment and indignation among the citizen specially the young brigade. It led to the first hunger strike staged in the whole of the state.
The Government should cleanse the system of its nagging credibility issue. It is supposed to have a foolproof mechanism to select the most talented youth for civil and other allied services of the state. The future of our state is dependent on the efficacy, motive, drive and intention of these officers. Failure to do so would mean allowing less than perfect administrators to take us for a ride.
Hello World! It is my humble effort to mend my wayward ways when it comes to bothering friends and acquaintances. Messaging is too delightful an indulgence. I spare none. Friends, Seniors, Juniors, Boys, Girls. None escape my piquant histrionics. Weekends are nightmare for the unsuspecting victims.
It was a sort of dream run. Mostly praising my supposedly passable wannabe in the world of messaging. Having tested blood, I embark on indiscriminate messaging frenzy. The last straw in the narrative proved to be a hazel eyed blonde who spilled the bean. To none other than the better half. It turned out she was a close relative of my spouse. As people say, the rest is history now.
Amateurish messaging and blogging is two poles apart. But bad habits die hard. Those who live by words ought to die by words too. Hence, another attempt at indulging in my favorite pastime.
