Isn't Kejriwal wasting public money while holding one-day Assembly session outside the Vidhan Sabha?
It is learned that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has proposed special session of Delhi Assembly from 13th February to 16th February 2014. The last day of the session on February 16th may be orgainsed at Indira Gandhi Indoor stadium in the presence of public to table, debate and pass the Delhi Janlokpal Bill.

However, I am yet to understand why Kejriwal is taking such an expensive step. It is estimated that around Rs 50 lakh would be spent on this session against Rs 1 lakh had it be done inside the assembly.

Further such populist arrangements would stop many MLAs from expressing their genuine concerns/views fearing the possible hooting from the public. Such circumstances would be incompatible for a genuine assembly debate! Even if the bill is passed it would be considered as passing forcibly through utter hooliganism!

It could be a propaganda stunt by Kejriwal to cash it during general elections. But again such things are generally not appreciated by common public. Any over activism is always rejected.

If Arvind Kejriwal wants that public must listen the debate, there is a very easy method. Conduct direct telecast of the debate. In this TRP seeking age, all electronic channels would telecast for free! Why then to waste Rs 49 lakh of public money apart from lot of public inconveniences!

Thus I feel this decision is nothing but a political stunt and Kejriwal must ensure to stop such over anxious dramas. He must realize that all public may be fooled for some time, some public may be fooled for all the time but all the public can’t be fooled for all the time!

You were there accusing others that they consume public money for selfish interests and what would be your answer if I accuse you for wasting public fund for the political interest of your party AAP?
