Expecting AAP's miracle in Lok Sabha elections- A luxury which is not affordable at all
'Mango People in Banana Republic' - he swept all the mockeries. The IITian turned into a vociferous politician and finally the CM of the national capital New Delhi- a story worth sharing indeed! But what if one peeps beyond this fairy tell (though the journey of Kejriwal and his party was not that smooth)?

His potential was questioned several times but winning 28 seats in the Delhi assembly elections said it all and the man of revolution Arvind Kejriwal won the faith of the mango people who are tired of seeing the corrupts and corruption. His existence in political arena caused uneasiness to the other biggies.

Congress was nowhere and it was the youth and the Aam Aadmi who showed Sheila Dikshit's rule a sign of big ‘NO’. Now banking on their very people sensitive agenda (education, water, electricity) AAP dreams of Lok Sabha elections 2014 and aims at it’s ‘Navaratna’ states. The Kejriwal battalion already constituted more than 300 offices all over India.

Call for participation in the process has also been made. But the chances are haze at this point of time. Firstly, the amount of sensitization and campaigning against corruption which AAP did through out the year, is not possible all over the India in just three months. Secondly, the nation has much more grave issues of concerns and needs other than water and electricity. So, only corruption agenda might not just work.

Thirdly, the traits of a common man in a village of MP and a citizen of the capital are very different. So, the people might not get influenced by the AAP magic chants. Fourthly, the water scheme currently introduced by the AAP has a lot of flaws which is a ready product for the other parties to take up at the time of campaign.

Fifthly, the USP of AAP was the visibility of its leaders everywhere, the ‘one to one’ communication process. AAP managed to bag the limelight as Kejriwal was the right hand of Anna Hazare during the  Lokpal Bill movement. But there still such places where Arvind Kejriwal’s name needs a good introduction among the less-politically aware section of the society.

Though, not a clear majority win in 2014 elections, AAP has undoubtedly given the nation an option to vote for. It will effect on the vote chunks of the Congress and BJP automatically. But expecting another miracle by the Aam Aadmi Party in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections would be a luxury which is not affordable at all.
