He has not announced any economic plan; any plan to remove social evils from society, end the exploitation of man by man, end corruption among the Babulok, provide relief to the sick, free justice to 'Aam Admi' through a special cell headed by Prashant Bhushan and so on.
His plan is only to expose the BJP and the Congress. Can such a negative approach in the long run yield any positive results? Kejriwal seems to have been overpowered by the Congress ghost. The 'Aam Admi' has been the Congress theme every since it was founded in 1885. Kejriwal has also adopted Purna Swaraj as the theme of his new party as well. It was the Congress, which had given a clarion call for Puma Swaraj during the days of freedom struggle.
Incidentally, the Congress was backed by legendary personalities such as Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and others to translate that dream into reality. And they did succeed in doing so. But if after those things started deteriorating, who was responsible? The leaders or the 'Aam Admi' who was by now being led or misled by vested interests of all shades and variety who had come out of their cells to bask in the sunshine of democratic freedom?
And if this happened in spite of Gandhi, Nehru, Sardar Patel, Netaji Subhas, how can we hope anything better from the new self-styled representatives of 'Aam Admi'? Knowing fully well that a political party cannot run without money, its leading member Prashant Bhushan announced: 'we have also taken steps, to open bank accounts and receive donations'; this is the trend which other parties have been following too. They have all professed to be the well wishers of the Aam Admi. But the Aam Admi has outsmarted them all too.
How can Kejriwal presume that corruption is limited to BJP and Congress only? Is the 'Aam Admi' free from this trait? Aren't the Babus in millions, working in our various administrative offices, also 'Aam Admi' who keep on harassing the common people when they approach them to get their legitimate work done?
Corruption has seeped down to the lowest level. The 'Aam Admi' in whom Kejriwal is showing so much faith, will be the first to betray him at the election time; he will be swayed away by money and muscle power.
