AAP ki gov­ern­ment

Southasia - - BRIEFINGS -

Af­ter a long dead­lock, the Aam Aadmi Party even­tu­ally de­cided to form the gov­ern­ment in Delhi, with the party chair­man Arvind Ke­jri­wal tak­ing charge as the chief min­is­ter of the state. Since the AAP didn’t have the re­quired ma­jor­ity, Congress pro­vided it with "out­side sup­port", much to the cha­grin

of its own work­ers.

Af­ter the elec­tion, the party had de­cided that it would sit on the op­po­si­tion benches. But it took the de­ci­sion back af­ter con­duct­ing a ref­er­en­dum in which peo­ple voted heav­ily in fa­vor of an AAP gov­ern­ment in Delhi. How long this ‘out­side sup­port’ by the Congress continues is a ques­tion asked by po­lit­i­cal an­a­lysts, as ru­mors of dis­sent within the Congress emerged as soon as the an­nounce­ment of its sup­port for the AAP came out. Another mat­ter that con­cerns AAP sup­port­ers is that how this in­ex­pe­ri­enced party is go­ing to bal­ance its elec­tion cam­paign and the im­por­tant task of run­ning a state.
