Why Kejriwal’s dharna is not more than an AC room drama?

Crisis in the Capital. Who exactly is governing Delhi? This is a question that is bound to arise once again since the chief minister and four of his cabinet colleagues have been camping for three days in the lieutenant governor's office to press him to end a protest by bureaucrats. Of course, this is only the latest bone of contention between the L-G and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government, which says the Centre is trying to diminish its functioning and stop development work undertaken by it. The provocation for the latest round of differences between the bureaucracy and the state government is the alleged assault on chief secretary Anshu Prakash on 19th February at the chief minister’s residence. The sit-in at the LG’s office is not likely to pay dividends, either for Delhi or for the AA

AAP vs Bureaucracy- Blockade or Scapegoat for AAP?

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) came to power with a thumping victory in 2015. A year when Modi wave came across a broom and was swept away from Delhi. The year now also remains the year where AAP did not walk into bad controversy. AAP’s tenure was seen as a revolution in modern India politics but that hasn’t happened at. This time though they have entered a dangerous territory, they have picked a fight which very few had dared to pick before them.  The recent incident involving Delhi’s Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash unearths an issue which was lying below the surface for past 3 years. AAP fight with the center on functioning is more of a symbolic one, they are really fighting the bureaucracy. The various transfers and then cancellations were the first major open fight between these two. The new i

How has the Kejriwal led government performed till now?

Controversy's "favorite child" Arvind Kejriwal, has had relatively fewer prime time bytes in a while now. Having faced an immense setback in the Delhi Municipal Corporation Elections in the last cycle, the activist turned leader seems to be working on changing the perception of himself and the party. With two years left in office, post a historical mandate for his party, Kejriwal needs to work fast to get past the disenchanted voters in the capital. The capital continues to face serious hazards in the domains of environment and women safety. Here's a peek into how Kejriwal government has performed by now. How did Kejriwal’s government face the Election Commission’s recommendation to disqualify 20 AAP MLA’s? The Election Commission in a recent move has sent out a recommendation to disqual

Will Shinzo Abe’s Gujarat trip affect the result of upcoming Gujarat Election?

Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe visited Ahmedabad on 13-14th September along with PM Modi. Shinzo’s visited India for the ground breaking ceremony of high-speed rail network between Ahmedabad and Mumbai. Apart from the rail project, the two leaders also laid the foundation stone for a dedicated industrial township for Japanese during their visit. More than 10 MoUs between Japanese and Indian delegates were signed then. The two leaders also paid visit Mahatma Gandhi’s Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad. Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar were neatly decorated for the visit of the two PMs. However, a logical question arises in mind that why Shinzo Abe was not invited to the country’s capital, Delhi and why Gujarat was selected? Is it because the BJP is eyeing the upcoming assembly elections in Gujarat

Why is so called corruption crusader Arvind Kejriwal silent nowadays?

Citizens of the country must be wondering that usually the ‘motormouth’ and known for his fierce proclamations, how is Arvind Kejriwal silent nowadays? What is he doing nowadays? Gone are the days of fierce proclamations, blindly accusing PM Narendra Modi, of destabilising his government through Lieutenant Governor. He has also stopped blaming the high and mighty people of the country for corruption. Even his twitter account has gone visually quiet. So what is the reason for his silence? When did Kejriwal go silent? The visible change came when AAP was brutally defeated in the Punjab and Goa Assembly elections. AAP was confident in forming a government in Punjab and winning respectable seats in Goa that would help play a key role in forming a government. However, Congress had other p
