BJP’s Delhi unit is staging dharna (protest) in 14 places demanding Somnath Bharti’s resignation following controversies and allegations against the law minister. Though, AAP clearly said that they would take action only after the probe is over, however the chorus has been growing louder and louder every passing day against the law minister.
But, one fails to understand as to why is BJP's Delhi
unit on dharna? Allegations against Bharti are right now dealt by various authorities starting from Delhi
Commission for women to courts and judicial committee apart from media. Then what’s the point in sitting for the dharna? If AAP’s dharna was unwanted, chaotic and anarchists, the same can also applied for this multi-place dharna organized by BJP Delhi
As a responsible and constructive opposition, its main job is to go to the public, find their problems, compile the public issues and pursue the governments to solve them. Find if there is any problem with the governance and rise in the assembly. This is what will win over the public, not such dharnas. AAP government is not even a month old and like any government it requires some time. Thus, sitting on such dharnas against the government by BJP's Delhi
unit does not reflect much sense , but rather prove immaturity.
The mistakes that the AAP is making due to their immaturity is being taken by media and other sections as well. As a responsible party, BJP must distance itself from such dramas and should follow the wait and watch policy. Aping AAP’s street protest is self damaging. If people don’t like AAP’s method of protest, they are not suddenly going to like BJP’s street dharnas as well.
Will Delhi BJP shun such mindless activism and do real ground work for their party’s interest?
