Haryana, hitherto known internationally for its three political Lals namely Bansilal, Devilal and Bhajanlal and of late due to late Ch. Ranbir Singh's Lal Bhupinder Singh Hooda. But now, another Lal of Haryana, Kejriwal is into international media headlines for capturing the Delhi fort earlier ruled by the Congress party by defeating three time Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.
The Congress which had announced unconditional support to the AAP is panicky over Kejriwal's announcement to refer corruption cases of previous regime for probe. Everybody who is somebody in corridors of power in Delhi has looted Delhi and they are panicky with emergence of Kejriwal.
Ironically in neighbouring Rohtak, another Lal of Haryana namely Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led government has imposed prohibitory orders under section 144 in Rohtak town to check growing outburst of people against Hooda.
In a short span of forming a political party and becoming chief minister, Kejriwal's achievements rightly deserves to be mentioned in book of world records. Kejriwal's emergence has sent shock waves not only in the Congress and BJP but in mafias also who are operating under the patronage of the Government.
The Congress which was forced to offer unconditional support to Kejriwal for forming the govt. had thought that it was laying honey trap but is now shocked that Kejriwal by taking public into confidence has beaten it in its game. Now the former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit says that their support is not unconditional and even the Congress workers had resorted to dharna against party's decision to support Kejriwal.
According to political annalysts perhaps for the first time in its history the Congress party was forced to announce support to a party whose leaders are not mincing any words in virtually abusing the party. BJP is also jittery over the developments. Its chief ministerial candidate Dr. Harsh Vardhan although enjoys a clean image is also shocked and had even alleged that Aam Adami Party had betrayed the mandate of people as it is forming the Govt. with the support of the same party against which it had contested the elections.
According to political observers it will not be easy for the Congress to withdraw its support as it had done in toppling the Governments led by Charan Singh and Chander Shekher. Arvind Kejriwal is not fool and it is believed that he will use every minute of his rule in following and implementing pro people policies.
The Govt. will pass a strong Lokayukta Bill in the Assembly and it will be difficult for the Congress and BJP. to oppose it. Admittedly that bill needs approval of the President but even in that case AAP Govt. by passing the bill in the Assembly will show that its intentions are clear on the sensitive issue.
The private companies which supply electricity in Delhi are also panicky as Kejriwal had announced to do their audit. Besides the corrupt officials are worried as the Govt. will refer all corruption cases for inquiry.
Although Anna Hazare has sent his good wishes to Kejriwal but it seems that from core of the heart he had not liked the new developments. Former cop Kiran Bedi who had advocated Kejriwal forming the Govt. with the support of BJP is also feeling herself sidelined. So is former army chief V.K. Singh. But the Aam Aadmi of Delhi is happy over the formation of Arvind Kejriwal's government.
Aam Aadami Party's success has jolted politics of nearby Haryana from where a large number of people had participated in Lokpal movement. Both Kejriwal and Yogender Yadav belongs to Haryana and the party had already announced its intentions to contest elctions in the state.
Kejriwal Govt. it is believed may not complete its term but it is widely believed that it will take remarkable pro-people decisions. The Congress, BJP and the corporates that are corrupt will use all the dirty tricks to destabilize and discredit the Govt. As far as media is concerned it has already started changing its colors like chameleon.
