Farmer's Death in Delhi: Kejriwal should be booked for abetment to suicide!
Words are insufficient to describe the shocking incident that the nation witnessed yesterday. A farmer who travelled all along from Dousa, Rajasthan, to participate in AAP's Kisan Rally hanged himself in front of "the so called people's CM of Delhi Mr. Arvind Kejriwal and the tall leaders of the AAP" before full media glare and a crowd of hundreds while the rally was in full swing.
Undoubtedly it will be hard-hitting and tough for the whole nation to come out of the shock wave that the appalling death of Gajendra Singh (the farmer who died) has sent throughout the globe.

What was most shocking for me was the kind of insensitivity and inhuman conduct shown by AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal. In fact when I heard the news, the first thing that came into my mind was:

"The pictures of Kejriwal climbing the electric pole to cut the wires to oppose allegedly over charged electricity bill" and " climbing the walls while his Janata Darbar turned out to be a mess during his 49 days tenure as CM of Delhi". Once I had termed these pictures as Kejriwal's antics. But I wished if he would have shown same antics yesterday by at least trying to climb the tree, then may be poor Gajendra Singh would have been alive today.

But to everyone's surprise that include his die hard fans, he didn't even care to climb down the podium. I really wondered what would have prevented him from doing so. Not even once he appealed to the deceased to climb down the tree while the farmer was showing his intentions since many hours before his death. Has politics become so important for him than the lives of the common people?

Even after that neither he was seen accepting his inability to save poor Gajendra's life or admitting the fact that at least a part of him is also responsible for the unfortunate incident. In fact instead of owning the responsibility his first attempt was to politicise the incident and earn some mileage out of it.

His first statement was to blame police. "Police is not in my control" speaks volumes about the "vulture" that resides in him. Let's not talk about the shameless conspiracy angle given by infamous AAP leader Somnath Bharti with his twitting timings and the sarcastic statements given by AAP leader Asutosh in a response to media immediately after the incident.

There are many suspicious questions that have already surface post this unfortunate and sad incident. Many are feeling that "it was a mocking suicide drama that went wrong, which was scripted by AAP itself that costed an innocents life". It might be also possible that the poor farmer had come to attend the rally with a hope that his real concerns would be addressed. But after seeing the politics played with their issues he might have lost hope and ended his life, as I feel.

In either case the common thing is that it is a clear case of abetment to suicide and Mr. Arvind Kejriwal should be booked first with the same.

In any case the truth in the case will come out for sure as CBI has already been asked to conduct an enquiry. I wouldn't be surprised if some more horrible facts get revealed which would be more terrible to digest.

At present I honestly feel, "It's not even a suicide (as the deceased was well aware of his rights and had a fighting spirit) …it's a cold blooded murder for political mileage." And I clearly hold Arvind Kejriwal responsible for it as the onus was with him to save Gajendra's life as everything happened in front of him."
