“Maliwal controversy” has the potential to be the tipping point.

“Maliwal controversy” has the potential to be the tipping point.
Share This Post

Despite being only a decade old, the Aam Aadmi Party often dominates headlines. In mid-2011, Anna Hazare’s fast against corruption at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan sparked public interest. However, the political entity that emerged from it quickly strayed from its original mission and became a party seeking power through any means necessary. AAP, like many other parties, has a single leader, Arvind Kejriwal.  The party’s promises to limit leadership to a single three-year term, implement an anti-corruption ombudsman law, disclose donor names and addresses on its website, and deny membership to corrupt and criminal elements were disregarded. Kejriwal removed a few public-spirited members from the AAP after they joined the Hazare protest. Only those who played second fiddle and performed his bidding were accepted.

 

After winning the Delhi Assembly elections in the midst of Hazare’s anti-corruption campaign and the promise of free bijlee-pani, the AAP took a firm stance against the national government. The tendency to point fingers at others become the default mode. The government blamed the Centre, initially led by the Congress and later by the BJP, for any difficulties that went beyond its mental and administrative capabilities, which included most civic issues.

 

The Delhi Chief Minister was seen as infallible, while others were misguided and lacked motivation. Its defining feature was media manipulation.
In response to a PIL, the AAP was ordered by higher courts to reimburse taxpayer funds spent for party propaganda. Kejriwal has not repaid a penny of the tens of crores demanded by the courts. The courts have ignored non-compliance.

 

Despite the controversy surrounding the self-proclaimed aam-aadmi messiah, who wore a cheap shirt, modest chappals, and a five-rupee ballpoint pen in his chest pocket while spending over Rs 50 crore on his luxury mansion, he refused to abandon his sham act.
AAP, like other one-man organisations, primarily serves as a source of income for the governing families. We’ve made this argument before and will make it again.
Other political parties, except for the CPI (M) and BJP, are often family businesses that prioritise personal gain over public good. The major political families of Chennai, Lucknow, Mumbai, and Patna have moderate financial resources. They all had humble origins and are now awash in unearned money. There is just one business: politics. Because party-owners profit through unethical ways, it’s natural for followers to dig into the public treasury.
This is a classic example of crooked leadership.
The reason voters do not reject corrupt political dynasties is that corruption has become ingrained in society.

Even the most upright persons face corruption in government offices on a daily basis. Don-netas, modern-day Robin Hoods, are popular for exploiting the system and delivering harsh justice to the underprivileged.
Many individuals were first drawn to AAP because they believed it would follow the rules, uphold conventions, and avoid corruption and criminality, which are common among politicians.

Kejriwal’s willingness to join the corrupt and permissive cabal defied expectations of an ideal leader. His excessive desire for power could lead to his downfall. As the central government reveals its true face, the AAP supremo’s evasive and diversionary tactics may become less effective. The Maliwal controversy has the potential to be the tipping point.
