listen to the news
Watch out, a notice has been issued against Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia after the CBI raid. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) may also investigate the matter to find out the alleged financial irregularities in the case of excise duty policy. This may add to the problems of the Delhi government and Manish Sisodia. The Aam Aadmi Party calls this action an attempt to stop the growing popularity of Arvind Kejriwal. He has already started declaring that the 2024 Lok Sabha elections will be ‘Modi vs Kejriwal’. What is the point of this claim of a party which has political advantage only in Delhi and Punjab?
The Aam Aadmi Party is dominant in Delhi with only seven Lok Sabha seats and Punjab with 13 Lok Sabha seats. In this too BJP has been successful in winning all seven seats in Delhi in 2014 and 2019. The Aam Aadmi Party, which has achieved resounding success in the assembly elections twice, has also failed to open its account in Lok Sabha. Similarly, in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections in Punjab, it had won four seats, while in the last Lok Sabha elections, it managed to save only the Sangrur seat from Bhagwant Mann.
Even if he assumes that he gets a resounding success in Delhi and Punjab, then his claim stops short of going to 20 seats at most. In this situation, the Aam Aadmi Party is in no position to challenge the BJP with 303 seats in the Lok Sabha led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah. Kejriwal’s claim for the post of Prime Minister can only gain weight when the opposition accepts him as a leader, but with politically more powerful leaders like Nitish Kumar, Mamta Banerjee, KCR, Kejriwal’s emergence as a party leader of the opposition you seem too tall The Congress, the largest opposition party, will not even make the mistake of giving Kejriwal a chance at the national level after burning its hands in Delhi. So what does the Aam Aadmi Party want to achieve by making this claim?
strategy to influence Gujarat elections
Political pundits believe that this could be Arvind Kejriwal’s well-thought-out strategy to make his party more relevant in the Gujarat-Himachal assembly elections. Amid weak Congress preparation, Aam Aadmi Party sees better prospects in Gujarat. The party is moving towards the best election contention in the state on the back of comments from its strategist Sandeep Pathak, who won the Punjab elections. Don’t even expect a charismatic success like Delhi or Punjab in this election, but if it manages to become the number two party in Gujarat, it will be a huge success. With this, Kejriwal will be able to make a direct attack on Narendra Modi and Amit Shah on the basis of Gujarat and in this situation his voice will be more important.
The way the Aam Aadmi Party is working hard in states like Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Goa, if it gets stronger in one or two states, Kejriwal’s claim for the prime ministership in 2029 will be much stronger. In this very likely situation, even Mamata Banerjee or Nitish Kumar, confined to a single state, will not be able to stake a stronger claim than Kejriwal. So, it can be assumed that this statement of Aam Aadmi Party is a very well thought bet, the results of which may be visible in the future.
Kejriwal dreaming of Mungerilal: BJP
Delhi BJP general secretary Harsh Malhotra told Amar Ujala that Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party have a habit of dreaming beautiful dreams like Mungerilal. He also ran for the post of Prime Minister in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, but only all his party leaders were seen making a record of the loss of their deposits. Similarly, the Aam Aadmi Party has been trying to fight in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Goa, but everywhere it has made only one bail forfeiture record, he said.
Harsh Malhotra said that the truth is that his former health minister is in jail in Punjab in a serious corruption case, while Delhi health minister Satyendar Jain is also in jail for two months in a case of corruption The type of serious corruption case exposed in the excise policy, Arvind Kejriwal’s special assistant Manish Sisodia will also go to jail. He said that there are also serious questions about the health and education model and in the coming times, the Delhi government may also be surrounded by it.
You will lose your political influence
BJP leader Malhotra said Arvind Kejriwal had entered politics saying he was honest about the corrupt politics of the Congress. But with the way each of its leaders will go to jail in serious corruption cases, its color has been exposed. He said that the people of the country would never like such a corrupt alternative and the Aam Aadmi Party would soon lose its political influence.
