AAP and their new political challenges
Aam Aadmi Party, a newly formed political party with broom as its symbol could not acquire full majority to form the government in Delhi. Yet the people of Delhi have asked in the public meetings to form the government. Arvind Kejriwal is expected to be sworn in as Delhi's Chief Minister on 28th December at Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi.

Apart from running the government as per the aspirations of the common man expecting a major relief on various accounts right from kitchen to office, the road ahead does not seem to be very clear and easy for Kejriwal and company.

Will Arvind Kejriwal give a better government to Delhi than the Congress and BJP?
Yes :
73.33 %
No :
26.67 %
Can't say :

In fact, the problem with AAP is that it does not fit comfortably into any of the Indian political parties as it is not based on inherited power, wealth, community, caste or language, but on the principle of integrity. But, it is their uniqueness, which has won over the voters, primarily in the nation's capital.

It is observed that the politicians are not admitting the power of AAP as most of them underestimated it, which has made them sit and introspect the reasons behind it.

Kejriwal and co. might have a vision, but realising their vision is going to be a daunting task for a one year old party, still in its infancy. If at all, AAP gets even 30-40 seats in Lok Sabha-2014  elections, it is likely to benefit the BJP for 200 plus seats as Congress is seen as the third place party because of its failure on various fronts such as controlling inflation, creating employment and above all, involvement in huge scams.

No doubt, Modi as a candidate for the post of Prime Minister too is offering a vision of change within the existing political framework but AAP is committing radical changes outside the existing framework, as revolutions have always been from outside the system and not within.

Entirely agreeing that that the people of Delhi have great expectations from AAP government as Delhi election results were a milestone in India’s story of democracy. The light at the end of the tunnel is now brighter than ever before. Now, it is for Kejriwal’s team to ensure that the light burns brighter and brighter every new day.

Whatever be the outcome of the historical politics turn in Indian politics by Aam Aadmi Party but one must remember that other political parties want it to fail as is evident from the Congress' conditional support from outside.  Frankly speaking, AAP must choose its battles carefully and temper its expansion plans for contesting Lok Sabha-2014 elections.  It should focus on what it can deliver comfortably to establish its identity.
