Chalk and cheese
I am quite surprised at the comparisons drawn between the Aam Aadmi Party of India and the Tehreek-e-Insaf of Pakistan. Being an AAP supporter and a keen observer of Indo-Pakistan politics, I think all such comparisons are way off the mark. First, AAP has not been in politics for over 10 years like the PTI. It has hardly been a year since it took the form of a proper political party from a movement that started with the aim to root out corruption from India. Unlike the PTI, it didn’t wait for years to reach the assemblies.
Secondly, in the very short time that it has been in government, the AAP has taken some concrete steps towards the improvement of governance and solving people’s problems. The PTI, on the other hand, has been in power in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for over six months now and we have yet to see even a small change in governance and the condition of the people living in that province. It is time all such pointless comparisons were stopped.
