Media Watch: Are Aam Aadmi Party's days numbered in Delhi ?

Media Watch: Are Aam Aadmi Party's days numbered in Delhi ?

Political Correspondent
Daijiworld Media Network - New Delhi

New Delhi, Jan 16: Politics in Delhi is taking a dramatic turnaround, and in just 18 days of taking over the helm in Delhi, Kejriwal's fortunes seem to be showing a downward trend. The same media which waxed eloquent about him just over a fortnight ago has begun to hound him now.

The Creation

If a leader called Arvind Kejriwal has been born today, UPA 2 is totally responsible. Kejriwal rose from Anna Hazare's anti-corruption movement demanding Jan Lokpal. Though he was instrumental in RTI movement, Kejriwal's identity was largely revealed to the public through Lokpal Andolan whoch started in early 2011. Had UPA government taken Anna's movement seriously, AAP perhaps would never have been born. After the government's failure to act on the Lokpal bill, Kejriwal found he could fight for justice only by being party of the system. Parting away from Anna, Kejriwal announced his AAP party in October 2012. The rest is history.

Media played significant a role in AAP's rise. Right from Anna's Lokpal movement, until the Delhi election, media gave several hundred front page stories, plenty of live and prime time coverage, and enormous amount of bandwidth in the webspace. This created a huge negative impact on Congress and other UPA allies. Even BJP's PM candidate, a man like Modi was put on the backfoot due to media's sole attention on AAP and its leader Kejriwal.

When AAP won 28 seats in last year December's assembly polls, Kejriwal's market value rose sky high, and not only the Indian media, even the international media started giving prominence to him and his party.

Media U-turn

However, over the last 4-5 days, a turnaround of sorts is being witnessed in the three forms of Indian media - TV, print and the web. The same media and the same people who were praising AAP 24x7, have now taken a U-turn. A few big names who were full of praise for AAP, are now slowly backing out. Is this a trick by the Congress and BJP to eliminate AAP's waves from Indian politics ? Is media selective and even moody, or are some of the big media houses dancing to the tunes of other major political parties of India? Nothing can be ruled out.

Media seems determined not to allow Kejriwal to recover from his 'Janata Darbar' debacle. Kejriwal realised that Janata Darbar was far from reality after unexpected and unprecedented response from the people. Though Kejriwal did not accept the failure, he promised on the same day that Darbar would be back in 5 days' time with better security and at a bigger place. Soon, Intelligence report stated that the AAP leader and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had serious threat to life from Delhi's water and tender lobby. This led Kejriwal to give up his Darbar altogether, and he announced that people could lodge complaints through websites, call centres and postal letters. Media took this up as Kejriwal's failure.

Even as Janata Darbar remained a wish unfufilled, came yet another and more troubling setback for Kejriwal. His law minister Somnath Bharti, a lawyer by profession, was accused of tampering with an evidnce in a court case. The Delhi chief minister  defended the law minister, asserting that his cabinet colleague did not tamper with evidence in any case he was handling last year. But the BJP and Congress pounced on Bharti and BJP demanded that he quit. Bharti too defended himself.

According to a media report, an order was passed by the then CBI special judge Poonam A Bamba in which she pulled up Bharti and his client Pawan Kumar — facing prosecution on corruption charges — after the CBI accused them of influencing a prosecution witness by speaking to him on phone and discussing the case.

"Somnath Bharti was trying to save a junior level officer and the sting operation that has been done is being called tampering of evidence by the judges," Kejriwal told reporters.

Revolt in AAP

The last thing Kejriwal would want at this point of time is a revolt from his own people. But now, AAP's MLA Binny who earlier wanted to become a minister in the Kejriwal cabinet has created a flutter by revolting against Kejriwal.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislator Vinod Kumar Binny on Wednesday accused the rookie party of deviating from “promises” made before the 2013 assembly polls, evoking a sharp response from Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Hinting at growing discontent in the AAP, Binny said,“There is a lot of difference between what we had promised and the way they (the promises) are being fulfilled. I will come up with more details at a press conference on Thursday.”
Earlier, Binny had publicly displayed his unhappiness after failing to get a place in the newly constituted Delhi cabinet. The AAP leader, who defeated Congress heavyweight A K Walia from the Laxmi Nagar assembly seat, had walked out of a party meeting. 
AAP leader and Delhi CM Kejriwal expressed disappointment over Binny’s remarks. “There's nothing I can do about what he is saying.”
Kejriwal also said Binny had come to his house, seeking a ticket to contest the Lok Sabha polls from East Delhi. “First, he had come for ministership, we refused. After that, he wanted to contest the Lok Sabha polls. We have already decided no sitting MLA will get ticket for the Lok Sabha elections.”

In another embarrassment to the new government in the national capital, AAP leader Tina Sharma reportedly said the AAP had started working on its 2014 manifesto and was not concerned about its 2013 resolutions anymore.


FDI and Corporates

Kejriwal's unilateral decision to withdraw the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in retail sector, which was approved by the earlier Sheila Dixit government, without discussing it with any other political party, has angered several corporates who had shown keen interest in supporting Aam Admi Party. Reacting sharply to the decision, former Air Deccan chief Capt Gopinath who recently joined AAP said that he would consider his party membership if there was 'no internal democracy'.

All these problems could put Kejriwal government in trouble. Though AAP government looks safe for the next five months until the Lok Sabha polls take place, its credibility might come into question over and over, which could prevent the party from doing well in the Lok Sabha polls. On the other hand, national media has become too critical of AAP these days, and Kejriwal will be on the backfoot as only the media with support of the 'aam aadmi' enabled him and his party to rise to this position.

The coming weeks will be extremely critical for Kejriwal and team for sure. But a true leader is judged by how he handles times of crisis, and that will be Kejriwal's test too.

    The Congress, after spending probably Rs.10000 crores on Aadhaar, has decided to temporarily suspend mandatory linking of Aadhaar with the subsidy programs. Those who talk about Kejriwal's inexperience must think about this before they spew their "wisdom" on online forums.

    Dear Bhandarkar,

    Your observations are absolutely correct. It is really unfortunate that AAP is throwing away such a good opportunity given by people & in the process, they are not just disappointing public but spoiling wonderful opportunities to clean the politics. In the first place, their assertion that people have given a mandate to them is incorrect. They are polled just about 30% votes, which means over 69% people voted against. But due to Congee compulsions, they got an opportunity to form the Government. Now this great opportunity is being wasted, with unrealistic ambitions and losing focus on the job that they need to do. There is no denying that they don't have experience, but the sad part is that they are not willing to learn. They feel that in every respect they are the best and there is nothing that they need to learn.

    The bizarre failure of Janata Durbar speaks volumes on their learning/preparation. Compare this with the Patna Rally of BJP, which they managed so smoothly despite 3-4 bomb explosions in the venue.

    Even now, if they spend their time and energy on Delhi (may be expanded to Haryana in the immediate future) things may improve. They should provide necessary training to Ministers (especially the one's line Mr. Bharathi, their esteemed Law Minister), Mr. Kejriwal take the lead in correcting the situations instead of blindly supporting the Ministers, have time bound planning, take the bureaucrats into confidence (they should understand that it is important to run Government machinery and run themselves) etc, they could make an impact and give chance for clean politics to flourish. Their ambition 2014 in getting sundry into the party will totally collapse the party, which they & their real supporters should realize.

    Let's hope good sense will prevail.

    Small problems within AAP is exaggerated by Paid Media favouring BJP. BJP Chela journalists are blowing up AAP's problems out of proportion to show that AAP is no match for BJP in the next election. BJP is afraid that all their calculations may go wrong, even if AAP snatches just 3% of its vote bank. So, Pro- BJP media is concocting rumours against AAP.
    Give AAP another six months. By that time AAP will show their honesty in Delhi administration as well as show their power in next Elections and damage BJP's national aspirations.

    AAP is no different than the left. Their ideologies are almost the same, the only difference being they played it smart. If anyone can provide clean and chaos free government it has to be Modi. He has a proven track record which nobody can match. Again,many pseudos will say 2002. OK, what about after 2002?. Not even one single riot. Please look at UP which is a part of UPA. Everybody is tight-lipped about the same. Modi is the obvious choice because AK doesn't know what he is doing and rahul doesn't know what he has to know about what he should be doing!!. He can only roll over his kurtha and read a few lines written by a team of his advisors!

The only drawback is that he is still a novice in Politics. he may take some time to rise up and he'll never go against his promises. just have a look at his past always being people friendly, being in NGO, working with mother Theresa too. He had never thought of getting into politics or getting power. just keeping too much hopes on him people rush and he gets exhausted. just give him some time and wait and watch. and dont start to criticise the one who is just started crawling. Correct him or guide him and lead him.

    AAP is not given Majority to do the things within the specified time mentioned earlier. People know that & agree to give him more time. Its Congress/BJP agenda to break AAP for political gain. They are in right path & better than the Congress / BJP rule in Karnataka. AK's intentions are good & he will fulfill the promise. The Jan Lokpal bill cannot be passed without consulting all parties as they dont have a majority. Also congress leaders cannot be booked for corruption unless they pass this bill. Wait & watch, everything will be clear in the coming days. TV media are already purchased by the BJP & attach AAP for no reason.

    AAP started well and down the line its slipping the course. Their intention is good, but one cannot make such changes overnight. AAP may think the support from Congress will be withdrawn soon and Government will fall, before that they wanted to show people their developments. But smart Congress will continuously support may be till 2014 elections and AAP is clueless what to do next. In a country like India taking all the walks of people together and moving forward is really a challenge. Specially Delhi is not easy between too rich and too poor. Its all on Kejeriwal to redesign the strategy if they want to survive.

On 26th June 2013 Kejriwal had tweeted "Sheila Dikshit's response after each rape- "what can I do? Delhi police not in my control." Do we need such a helpless CM?" What did Kejriwal say on 15th Jan 2014 is the same after Danish woman's rape at Delhi. Now my question to Kejriwal is "Do we need such a helpless CM for Delhi"

    I am a big supporter of AAP but the way things being changed after AAP came in power and point under manifesto changed cleverly and they are not talking about the main issue on which they won . These questions raised by Binny seems to be valid and AAP should answer those .

    AAP is now become power hungry. After their tie up with congress, they are more concerned about retaining power than implementing any of their resolutions.Why is Arvind kejiriwal silent about the CWG scam? Why no effort to nail congress and its leaders? Why there is no effort to improve Law and Order? Why are they focusing more on Lok Sabha when they still have plenty of problems in New Delhi..

    I was expecting AAP govt will last at least 2 to 3 months. But now it doing to be finished before completing one month. Dear Kejriwal, please dismiss your party and you can look for any govt job since you are a self d un corrupt man.

    ..AAP didn't expected the result which they got in DELHI hence confused..riding on Anna movement & Nirbhaya case they managed to get votes..main problem with AAP is their leaders are arrogant, still in street protest mood..there is no leaders hierarchy,every one speaks & there is lot of noise..Once they formed Govt their main focus should have been DELHI but they forgot DELHI, now all their leaders eyeing LS elections..soon they realize protesting is different from governingng better chance of surviving as a political party..

    As far as Congi's support is there with AAP, definitely AAP's days are numbered.

    No National political party can tolerate the popularity of AAP in front of their eyes.

    Kejriwal should keep all arms and ammunitions ready to fight his own supporters rather fighting criminals. The criminals specifically belong to some party and creating scenes to tarnish the image.

    The problem with people and politicians here is that everyone is ready to argue and talk, but no one wants to get the work done.

    The people of India have to change their mindset and must think about the nation's future and must not blindly support Religion or dynasty politics.

    AAP has already proven in 15 days that it is efficient and is moving is a positive direction.It has actually managed do things which BJP & Cong would have otherwise taken 1 year to do.They deserve their due share of credit for this.

    AAP exposed by its own leader. Till now voters were asking same questions & AAP supporters were defending Kejriwal. Now what you have to say about it? Dont say that, binni is greedy. He has raised very good points & we need an answer to all the questions. A party who is not able to handle delhi, its own party members, how can we give them our nation to rule? First, let them handle Delhi, make the party strong, fulfill poll promises, gain some experience & then think about fighting for lok sabha elections. You have proven yourself first kejriwal. By fighting Loksabha elections you will not win nor will let any govt to form on its own majority.

    No denial of the claims by this guy. AAP also promised to bring Jan Lokpal within 15 days of coming to power. They also promised to bring to books the CWG and other scamsters within 7 days, but the same has not happened even after claiming to have umpteen number of pages of corruption against Ms. Sheila Dixit. This clearly shows the lack of will.

    i have watched the video in which kejriwal tell the people that vinod binny is greedy for lok sabha seat . but there is a lack of confidence on kejriwals face . That indicates that he is lier . no more he is aam admi neta . he is perfect politician

    This has become a 'Kudre Dumbu Kudu' party for various reasons!
    1.This party was born due to a cross between common man's problems and expectations.However, in this party sneaked some members who were carrying 'previous baggage's.
    2.The clean and newly elected, however do not know a thing about 'policies'. Evident from the stupid statements some are giving!
    3.There's no such thing as 'trial and error' method in administration! Moreover, expectations are so hyped that even a small failure is likely to
    be magnified many-fold! This is being experienced by this party already!
    4. Taking a 'national leap' without having a stand on important national issues is also a handicap!
    All in all the 'rewards' are there for the taking but preparations are absolute and very very poor! If they do not pull their socks up
    and still continue to brandish brooms the public will 'sweep them' out without a trace sooner than expected....

    The actual big winner the BJP in Delhi is sidelined by the media.In the very first days after Dec 8 results there are so many questions that to meet the manifesto.The canvas by aap in water 700 ltr was to entire Delhi . When it comes to implementing it went to only the working meter holders. The rest people who take tanker water felt cheated. like this way power bills too.
    AAP was warned not to contest Loksabha in the entire country and Kiran Bedi and other team members of Anna instructed AAP to give good governance in delhi and to contest only 7 LS seats of Delhi so that it can prepare for the 2015 state elections like Haryana and some other states to come to power gradually in these states. but no AAP people are ready to hear all this.The dissident Binny keeps on saying the same from day 1 but he also sidelined.I think the meeting, which was held in hotel Naman between AAP & Jindal which was told by Gadkari is giving wrong fruits.

    AAP arose from the anti - corruption struggle, no doubt, but when the Nooze around congress neck started getting tighter and tighter, especially after December 8th washout, they then realized that they are no more in the race to lead the nation anymore. They are now struggling to get even third place. This developed a plan by criminal congis that to use AAP as their plan C to see to that Modi does not come to power thus supported AAP in Delhi. Congress plans for Loksabha 2014 is not contesting, but just by trying all means to see it to that anti congress wave does not benefit BJP. All congress biased media will give congress and AAP required advertisement until the elections , then Congress will leave AAP on its own to find themselves thus fooling the people of Delhi and whole over India. All the senseless freebies congress and APP have implemented in last 6 months and coming 3 months will all be rolled back and make people realize what they asked for.

    I think AAP & Kejriwal that governance is very different and difficult once you are in the "hot seat". It was easy to hit the road and demonstrate but difficult to bite the bullet. I think the honeymoon will soon be over and reality will strike....heavily. Also, it is time for the people to get their perspectives right and not be beguiled by AAP and its antics. Wake Up India. New Broom will sweep well for a few days......then Shivane balla!!
