Remark:- Definitely no red-beacon is used. But big vehicle with VIP numbers were allotted to the ministers. Even Kejriwal himself asked for two 5-bed room bungalows. Thus on this front AAP government failed seriously because only tokenism was displayed.
Point 2: Passing of the Jan Lokpal Bill, the same version for which Anna Hazare held fasts.
Remark: - This in fact was opportunistically used by AAP in order to reap some benefit in Lok Sabha elections.
Point 3: People will take decision directly in 'mohalla sabhas', which will be held in every locality and colony.
Remark: ‘Swaraj Bill’ even could not pass the cabinet. No opinion was taken for decisions during the tenure of government. This is a failure.
Point 4: The AAP demanded complete statehood for Delhi. Central government's hold on DDA and Police should end.
Remark: No such bill came in the Assembly.
Point 5: The party also demanded a special audit of all electricity companies in the national capital from the time these were privatised. The companies that refuse to participate, their licenses should be cancelled.
Remark: Audit has been ordered. But because of resignation, how this can be followed up?
Point 6: Electricity meters should be checked.
Remark: This has not yet started.
Point 7: There is 220 liters of water available for every person daily. Where is it?
Remark: In this tenure, Kejriwal never wanted to investigate this. No answer to Delhi Public till date!
Point 8: AAP wanted unauthorized colonies to be regularized. 30% of Delhi's population lives in such colonies and these should be regularized.
Remark: This hasn’t been done yet nor any action initiated till date!
Point 9: The party demanded to know if the Congress and the BJP will support its decision to give clean and affordable 'pakka houses' (built up houses) to those living in slums.
Remark: Both BJP and Congress agreed to it. But AAP government didn’t initiate any action
Point10: It also sought their support to give regular jobs to those working on contractual basis.
Remark: No action initiated by AAP government despite their promise.
Point 11: It wanted to give infrastructural facilities like roads, electricity, water and basic facilities to the ordinary trader.
Remark: Not once these promises were discussed.
Point 12: AAP said it is against FDI in retail.
Remark: A letter from Delhi government sent to the central government withdrawing earlier consent of allowing FDI in retail at Delhi.
Point 13: The party wanted to provide facilities and subsidies to farmers in the villages in the national capital.
Remark: No attempt is made in this tenure.
Point 14: The party also demanded to know the Congress and BJP's stand on opening 500 government schools, stopping donations in private schools and making the fee system transparent.
Remark: Nothing has been done by AAP government.
Point 15: The party said it wanted to open new government hospitals with better facilities.
Remark: Nothing is done.
Point 16: It also wanted to have special security units for women and wants all harassment cases to be tackled within three months.
Remark: Some initial discussion started but nothing concrete done by the government.
Point-17: It wanted to set up enough courts and appoint judges so that all cases are dealt within six months.
Remark: Not done and neither initiated any action.
Point 18: The AAP wanted to know whether the municipal corporations of Delhi will support them on these issues.
Remark: No such situation has aroused during the tenure where MCD’s support is required.
The above were the 18 points promise, on which Kejriwal formed the government. Except of couple of promises such as ordering CAG audit and not allowing FDI in retail, it failed to fullfil every promise measurably.
However, there is claim that they have fulfilled two electoral promises (not included in the 18 point promise). Let’s discuss those two promises also.
Providing electricity at 50% reduced tariff: The original promise was to make the audit of discoms, check their irregularities so that Delhi public could the reduction of 50% in their tariff. Audit ordered and in the mean time 50% subsidy upto 400 units was announced. This subsidy included prevailing subsidy. This is applicable to only metered house. This can only be seen as a populist measure benefiting affording class only at the cost of Public money.
Providing free water up to 700 litre per day per house hold: 20kl water is made free for each household those have meters. Those who don't have meters (particularly poor people) wouldn’t be benefited. Further the main issue of providing water to everyone was not addressed. Thus in coming summers, the people who were suffering since years and became victim of tanker mafia are sure to suffer, because AAP is now interested in national ambition.
Thus it can be said that it’s all theatrics and zero governance. May God bless AAP!
