AAP failed to expose Modi, rather exposed their own mobocratic nature
Kejriwal was briefly detained by Gujarat police citing no permission for road show as per the Model Code of Conduct that was implemented the moment the election dates were announced by the Election Commissioner. As per rule, it was a legitimate action by Gujarat Police, although this could have been avoided.

However, as Prime Ministerial candidate of AAP, Kejriwal should have accepted the law of land. One shouldn't forget the issue of a Bihar IPS officer, who snatched the mike from L.K.Advani at 5.05 PM citing end of campaigning time during the 1998 elections. Advani didn't react, rather praised the officer.

In Gujarat, Kejriwal was on a road show to expose Modi's development. Everybody was eager to see as to what what defect would Kejriwal come up with regarding Modi?s development claim, but AAP exposed its mobocratic nature. The detention was no doubt legitimate, but why did a large number of AAP supporters crowd outside Delhi BJP house? Why did the AAP workers pelt stones at the office? This was hooliganism at its best.

It was surprising to see Ashutosh, a former journalist leading the act. What did AAP want to communicate? Does it want to show that India loves anarchism? Sorry, AAP has grossly mistaken India. It can tolerate everything but not anarchism, hooliganism and vandalism. Arvind Kejriwal many a time invokes Mahatma Gandhi, but forget the fact that Gandhi stopped his revolution because some Congress worker involved in violence at Chouri-Choura. How can AAP turn so violent?

BJP should understand the nature of an anarchic AAP. They need not respond to such violent means. The burning of AAP cap, coming with stick and fighting with unruly AAP workers no way substantiate so claimed self defense by BJP. BJP no doubt distanced from such cap burning and other violence but people are not fools.

Arvind Kejriwal finally came to the press denouncing AAP's unruly and violent acts but at the same time holding BJP and Modi responsible for detention, triggering the violence. Mr.Kejriwal must understand that people of India understood the simple fact on anarchism and violent unruly protests as 'Old habits die hard and for AAP it's really hard!'

AAP instead of exposing Modi, exposed the anarchic AAP more clearly. The people, who still believe that AAP could be a better party despite their recent immaturity, have to rethink once again, unfortunately.
