Aam Aadmi Party and Regionalisation of Congress



We, the common people, must ponder over a stimulating development and two thought provoking comments of the last week.

Let’s read the comments first. UPA Minister Manish Tiwari while commenting on Kejriwal’s Aam Admi Party famously said, “There are 1300 odd political parties in the country, there is one more.”

The comment I felt infuriating for a minute. But it could turn true too if the common man, who is angry with all political parties, did not support the new aam aadmi party(AAP). The same spirit that was seen at all the Anna’s shows of strengths– the flags that were waived when Anna roared against corruption inviting the common man to denounce the corrupt politicians — will be needed in the electoral arena to keep AAP alive in years to come.Or else even in the past such parties with positive programmes have been formed and have withered away.

We still don’t know how much the Kejriwal group is prepared for elections? We don’t know whether they will cut through the caste and communal angle to elections? We don’t know whether their candidates will succeed in pipping the money and the muscle power. We still don’t know whether their online community will be able to reach the rural India? We don’t know if they actually understand the politics of dehat? I have my doubts.

Despite the hawk eyes of the election commission, freebies are distributed by the candidates and by governments in advance. How else one can we explain some recent decisions of the UPA government? We don’t know when the general election will be held, but many believe they could be pre-poned to 2013. The Congress is in a poll mode. Suddenly the government seems active bringing out schemes for the poor people. For instance, take the step to credit cash into the back accounts of the beneficiaries in around 20 central schemes. I wonder why the government don’t introduce such schemes in their second or third year in office so that by the end of their five-year people can judge their efficacy.

The aam admi ( common man) has to awake and see through the games political parties play. Now the second comment, which was heard at Hindustan Times Summit where Punjab’s young deputy chief minister Sukhvinder Singh Badal described Congress as a regional party. I can’t agree more with him as the national party’s popular base is by and large restricted to smaller states.

Apparently, the Congress realises the strength of the regional parties. In Gujarat they are projecting Gujarat Congress and not the All India Congress. May be the Congress leaders feel that way the people would identify with the party more. Dilli to bahut door hai!

The Gandhi charisma has not helped them much in elections. It is seemingly on the wane until and unless they take some major decisions to improve that. Now that Rahul is going to drive the elections and not be just the face of the party, let’s hope the party revives. The other national party BJP is bogged down in internal differences.

AAP will take time to emerge as a political force to reckon with. Will that ever happen. I am sceptical. What about you?

    India’s population is a mountain of S-H-I-T. Kejriwal and India’s media people are particles of S-H-I-T in this mountain of S-H-I-T.According to a Washington Post story, more than 40 television cameras reported on Arvind Kejriwal waving a plain piece of paper — no other documentation — with a list of people with accounts in HSBC bank in Geneva. Documentation of K. Subrahmanyam coming on line, along with the CIA Director Michael Hayden, on August 9, 2008 and offering to transfer one crore rupees into my bank account within 48 hours if I agreed to work for the CIA — which shows Indian governments, in the present and in the past, to be proxies for the CIA — can be seen via HaydenSubrahmanyamDOTblogspotDOTcom and there is not a single television camera facing me to cover this biggest expose since India’s so-called ‘Independence’. IndiasTraitorGovtAndMediaDOTblogspotDOTcom .Why did Kejriwal, a mechanical engineer, become an income tax officer — are the salaries of Indian government income tax officers more than those of mechanical engineers? No, he did that to collect crores and crores in bribes which he keeps in Swiss bank accounts and his wife, still an income tax officer, now collects hundreds and hundreds of crores in bribes paid by corporates and individuals to avoid being targeted by Kejriwal. His associate, Prashant Bhushan, admits to having ‘managed’ many high court and supreme court judges by bribing them and they now threaten to expose some of the judges sitting on high profile cases for years in exchange for bribes from parties to the cases who will lose if the cases moved, so Bhushan and company can collect huge bribes from parties to other cases by threatening to similarly expose judges presiding over them.An item on the Indian defence web site, bharat-rakshakDOTcom, a few days ago referred to a web site in the United States inviting all those who obtained information via the Right-to-Information act in India to send the information they obtained to the American website to be included in a centralized data base. This web site is CIA-sponsored and the information is used by the CIA for blackmail and other purposes. Kejriwal’s involvement in the Right-to-Information movement which led to the passing of the Right-to-Information Act was part of this CIA-sponsored intelligence-gathering operation and he was rewarded with the CIA-controlled Magsaysay award as a result.The Washington Post story dated November 9 ‘12 regarding Kejriwal that I saved on my computer has been replaced on its web site by a different story that makes no mention of the more than 40 television cameras and the original story I saved on my computer disappears from my computer screen as soon as I load it — part of CIA-RAW’s ‘managing’ of Kejriwal, as were the cameras.Because of what I have written — IndianAirForcePilotsMurderDOTblogspotDOTcom — about the sabotage of India’s weapon platforms via joint exercises with the United States and about the U.S. Secretary of State then welcoming joint India-Australia exercises in the future to get it done through Australia, the U.S. has moved for joint bases with India to get around that and make the Indian military serve the United States as it served the British. As I have said, Indians in the army, air force, navy as well as police in their millions served and fought for the British and not a single one of them fought the British on behalf of India — and they were maintained with revenues extracted from India’s population and that continues today. The same is the case with Central and state legislatures — there were elections under the British, Indians formed Central and state legislatures and executives and the present day legislatures, police, etc. work in the same buildings, under the same laws and rules with cosmetic changes of Indians controlled by CIA-RAW as the rulers. The media are thoroughly CIA-RAW controlled. Sending IAS officers for “training” to the United States is part of ensuring the loyalty and subservience of the civilian administration as of the military to the Americans who have replaced the British as India’s rulers. And now members of parliament are sent for training to U.S. universities. Sending over a hundred thousand students a year for post-graduate studies in the United States, Britain, etc. ensures Indians outside government remaining under control of and loyal to U.S. – Britain. I have described elsewhere — JoinIndiaWarOfIndependenceDOTblogspotDOTcom — M. K. Gandhi’s and Jawaharlal Nehru’s fake ‘Independence’ struggle managed by the Intelligence Bureau. WhatYouShouldKnowAboutRAWDOTblogspotDOTcom .I wrote: “Just as RAW-induced cricket fever sweeps India and does no good and a lot of harm to India, replacing real victory and supremacy over white countries, for example, with fake ‘victories’ and ’supremacy’ over enemies, Hazare’s fake fast was entertainment — the arrests and conflicts with government are meant to generate support and make/keep him a hero — sponsored by CIA-RAW to keep India ‘Gandhian’ — and so poor, weak and enslaved — due to the recent disclosure that M. K. Gandhi, a lifelong British agent, was a homosexual who wrote to the white man “How completely you have taken possession of my body. It is slavery with a vengeance”. Nehru admitted to U.S. ambassador Galbraith that he was a lifelong British agent.” India’s population is a mountain of S-H-I-T. M. K. Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru were particles of S-H-I-T in this mountain of S-H-I-T.Are India’s present day rulers and public figures — Manmohan Singh, Advani, the rest of the members of parliament, etc., better than M. K. Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru? No, they are particles of S-H-I-T in the mountain of S-H-I-T that is India’s population. Members of India’s parliament are particles of S-H-I-T in the mountain of S-H-I-T that is India’s population.The institution of Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) was formed under the British and Indians are allowed to fight about bribes and corruption; what they are NOT allowed to fight is the continuation of white rule over India whose economic consequences also are incomparably greater. JoinIndiaWarOfIndependenceDOTblogspotDOTcom and ‘How India’s Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year Or More’ : HowIndiasEconomyCanGrowDOTblogspotDOTcom .It needs to be clarified that nearly three million Indians from India now in the United States with very high levels of education and a median household income over eighty thousand dollars per year — more than any other ethnic group — remain particles of S-H-I-T from the mountain of S-H-I-T that is India’s population.

    In my Bharat Mahaan, media has been bought by the Corrupt Congress otherwise don’t you think that it is the duty of the media to inform the common people about the wrongdoings of the ruling party, but alas it is NOT happening.

    Junior Badal is the most corrupt politician. He is the most richest politician in the world. Have you guys (MEDIA) ever paused for a second to figure it out how?

    The only hope India has is Kejriwal. Wake up India from your slumbers and strengthen Kejriwal. Vote for AAP.

    If Kejriwal or any other party want to get succeeded to parliament then they need to ensure people coming into politics as member of parliament should neither have any type of business interest nor they allow to extend any kind of support to any of their relatives having business intesest.

    ” the flags that were waived when Anna roared against corruption inviting the common man to denounce the corrupt politicians — will be needed in the electoral arena to keep AAP alive in years to come. ”
    I agree with the anxiety of Sunita Behn here. Let us not forget that we defeated Gen B C Khanduri but elected Pokhriyal. But the good development is that Corruption has been put on the National Agenda by the non political activists .. Baba Ramdev , Anna and Kejriwal …. Would like to see how he fares in politics
