KEJRIWAL SHOULD RETHINK
As per the public image of AAP convenor and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, he is not among the politicians who take bribes for any favour. But what did actually attract him to send two Guptas to Rajya Sabha is inexplicable for even Aam Aadmi Party. Among the two Guptas, one is a chartered accountant (CA) and another is from the education and healthcare business fields, which are the most corrupt fields in present time. The CA was in the Congress few days ago and was actually very vocal against Kejriwal. What did he do for Kejriwal as the Delhi CM decided to send him to Rajya Sabha? Picking these two for the upper house of Parliament has dented the image of AAP and Arvind Kejriwal.
It is totally wrong to say that other political parties have not sent non-party tycoons to Rajya Sabha. But are the other parties and the politicians same as AAP and Arvind Kejriwal? The image of Arvind Kejriwal and AAP is actually of an anti-corruption campaigner and now terse questions are being asked to Arvind Kejriwal and AAP on the decision to send them to Parliament from backdoor.
The Aam Aadmi Party workers are upset over the decision of the party leadership and they showed it openly also. The third candidate from AAP, Sanjay Singh filed his nomination with all kind of celebrations while the two Guptas remained silent totally. If Aam Aadmi Party doesn’t recover it quickly, it can trun into a huge image distorter for Arvind Kejriwal and the party before the next elections. The Delhi Government’s works are of those kinds which are capable to raise the AAP on national level. But AAP will have to repair its damage done due to the above decision.
The solution can come as rendering resignation by these two Guptas after their selection to the Rajya Sabha. After that, AAP can send the persons to the upper house of Parliament who are associated with party for long time and are quite vocal in the interest of people.
Actually, almost all parties make shoddy dealings in sending persons, espically the big shots, to the Rajya Sabha. Hence, this right needs to be directly handed over to the parliamentary board or working committee. Even the nomination of 10 Rajya Sabha members by the President should be given to the all members of the Rajya Sabha in order to have only the competent and the meritorious personalities in the upper house of Parliament of India.
