People are already tired with the tactics of the political parties where these parties prefer to skip the real issues and make the issues of "secularism" and "communalism" to divert the attention of the public from the real issues concerning the people. If Kejriwal was also doing the same politics, people were simply not interested. They expected Kejriwal to do a different kind of politics in which system becomes transparent and corruption free. By now, people have understood that Kejriwal has no intention to do that and he was also joining the “short cut route” of the politics by indulging into the politics of secularism-communalism.
After this goal shifting, Kejriwal was a new man. His enemy number one was Narendra Modi and his party BJP. To show that he is a secular person and AAP is a more secular party than any other party, he started targeting BJP and Narendra Modi on 24 hour basis. However, as we all can see, this definitely has backfired and as the Exit Polls are predicting, AAP is not likely to get more than 3 to 7 Lok Sabha Seats across the Country.
Further, its support base in Delhi has completely diluted where it may get not more than a single Lok Sabha Seat. The outcome of Varanasi is already known to everybody and even Kejriwal is not contesting the Varanasi seat to defeat Modi, but to gain the 24 hours guaranteed media attention.
Under these circumstances, after the Lok Sabha results are announced and a new Government is formed at the Centre, the next thing will the dissolution of Delhi Assembly and fresh elections. In the changed scenario, is it highly unlikely that the AAP will repeat its earlier performance of winning the 28 seats. On the contrary, there are fair chances that the BJP will get the absolute majority followed by Congress moving to the second position and the AAP will be downgraded to number three with just about 5 to 10 seats in the Assembly.
We can also conclude that in the coming future, AAP will loose its relevance completely as there are already many parties in India to fight against the “so-called communalism.” The best thing for AAP would be to get itself merged with Congress Party as the goals of both these parties are common, i.e to fight against the “so called communalism.”
