The Road Ahead

India Today - - MAIL -

Though the 49-day stint of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in power in Delhi is be­ing den­i­grated as a fi­asco mostly by the Congress and BJP, the party has been able to strongly con­vey its com­mit­ment to­wards up­root­ing peren­nial cor­rup­tion ubiq­ui­tous in the In­dian po­lit­i­cal spec­trum (“Big Game Hunters”, March 3). Though it is dif­fi­cult to spec­u­late the out­come of its de­ci­sion to go na­tional in the forth­com­ing Lok Sabha elec­tions, it is likely that AAP will make its pres­ence felt in Par­lia­ment too. KE­SHAV P., via email Though his de­ci­sion was much crit­i­cised, Arvind Ke­jri­wal and his AAP did the right thing by dis­solv­ing the Delhi govern­ment. Since it didn’t have the ad­e­quate num­bers to form a govern­ment on its own and had to de­pend on Congress’s sup­port, it was un­likely that AAP would have been able to bring about any sig­nif­i­cant change in the city. It is im­per­a­tive that fresh elec­tions are held so that AAP can re­turn to power with a ma­jor­ity. Ke­jri­wal has vi­sion and his party will do well in the na­tional scene as well. M.
