Varanasi Polls and Kejriwal Antics
On Saturday 15 March, BJP decides to field BJP PM Candidate Shri Narendra Modi from Varanasi and very next day Mr Kejariwal announces in his rally in Bangalore that he will contest against Modi in Varanasi. So what is the big deal? Wait there is a catch. Kejariwal says will only contest from Varanasi if the “Janta of Varanasi’ tells so to kejariwal in his 23 March rally which he will hold in Varanasi. The big question is that Kejariwal, who fully knows that he will even loose his deposit in Varanasi against modi, why is he contesting from Varanasi?

First, Arvind Kejriwal and his AAP party has realised that after his 49 day antics as CM of Delhi, where he did not fulfil even one promise out of hundreds he made to people of Delhi, his credibility is at the bottom, with people of Delhi feeling cheated and  let down.  By fighting against Narendra Modi, even with chances of winning as zero, he will still be able to maintain himself in the media. A fact which he has indirectly acknowledged also by saying that he is fighting from Varanasi not to win but give a challenge. At the same time he is buttressing his future defeat in the hands of modi by enacting this drama on 23 March of Janta of Varanasi deciding. After his defeat he will say that he only fought from Varanasi because people of Varanasi said so. 

In other words for his defeat it is people of Varanasi who will be responsible. Second reason for his fighting from Varanasi is to live up to the obligation that he has towards the American Ford foundation. It has been reported that the Ford Foundation which is basically the front of American Intelligence Agency CIA has invested lot of money in promoting the NGOs run by Arvind Kejriwal and his AAP party cronies. How far it is true only time and investigations after the installation of new Government will tell.  It is common knowledge that America which has almost made India its satellite country thanks to UPA 1 and UPA 2 rule does not want Modi to be as PM. The third main reason is to shield Rahul Gandhi and the Congress from the barbs of Modi. It is AAP is basically  the B team of Congress which has been fielded to cut into BJP urban votes by congress. Till now Modi has refrained from countering wild charges levelled against him and Gujarat developmental model by kejriwal. This is the right approach. Kejriwal is nonentity and let him stew in his own petard. Why give him importance by countering. Let him continue with his hit and run tactics. This is is already proving counterproductive.
