Why AAP shouldnot form coalition government


Ever since results of Delhi assembly elections were declared and AAP’s stunning debut took entire political establishment and common mass by surprise there is one thing which I have been noticing about BJP and congress supporters. They are too scared, frustrated and annoyed. They are calling names and asking AAP to form government by taking support from corrupt party like congress.

But shouldn’t it be otherwise? Coalition is between those parties which have common thinking, ideologies, ways of working etc. And the two parties which fit exactly in these criteria are BJP and congress. They are the ones which should join hands to form a government in Delhi. Anyways under table they are already hand in glove in most of their activities.

As per constitution, BJP being the party with maximum seats should form the government .It seems 50 years old party needs to get lessons in constitution of India.

Now coming to the most important point. For all the questions asked to AAP fans “Why AAP or Arvind Kejriwal is not willing to take unconditional support from other parties to form government”, following are my views cum justification:

1) Man of principles: AK-47 is practicing what he preaches. Before elections he had clearly and loudly said “WE WILL NEITHER SUPPORT CONGRESS OR BJP“. Kejriwal is a man of words and will not get along  with corrupt forces however much you may shout and crib.He is doing what he promised. He is not a power hungry guy who would deceive people’s promise once elected .

2) Mind Games : The two major parties are trying to act smart. BJP is preaching that AAP can take support from Congress, whereas Congress is preaching AAP to take support from BJP. Each of these parties were quite vocal that AAP is B team of their opponents. Now if AAP takes support (which it will not ) then they would say “See I told you so , its B team of Congress/BJP”. AAP understands this trap and will not fall for it.

3) New definition of politics: AAP in these elections and post results have set new definition in Indian politics. It is not only following a new and principled approach but also making other parties do the same. BJP copied lot of good ideas of AAP which it did not do in other state (Since there was no AAP there).By joining hands with other parties AAP cannot afford the slightest misstep in this regard, risking the tremendous goodwill that has brought it so close to power

4) Preventing  horse trading : AAP candidates are honest , they are very difficult to be bought out by BJP. This fact is very well understood by BJP and this is the reason why a party which is known for horse trading and such calculations is refraining superficially from staking claim to form government. Past record of BJP proves the same when in UP , under Kalyan singh 113 MLAs were made ministers and they had coalition with BSP where they would rule/loot UP for 6 months in turns.But this time honest & principled approach of AAP is  sending shivers for BJP even to vouch for AAP candidates. They might fear a sting may be made of the same.

5) Re election noise :  Parties which spend 10-15 crores in a  single rally, distribute liquor , money  for elections are strangely showing how much they care about money spent on elections. They are crying hoarsely that reelection will be  burden on public. But if you are not short sighted you will realize that its better to elect an honest government with a  majority than to form a coalition which will be good for nothing. See the plight of government at the centre .

6)  Difficult to implement policies : Even if Congress or BJP gives outside support it will be nearly impossible to get the bills like Janlokpal to be passed.There will always be trouble of proving majority.

7) BJP is shivering with fear : With a strong opposition like AAP , BJP knows very well that it will not be able to make money and loot people. The very purpose for which they are in politics will not be served that’s why are afraid to form government.

8) Strength of AAP displayed: Before elections most of the voters were in 2 states of mind. Many doubted whether AAP will be able to win 2-3 seats forget about gaining majority. Their confusion were exploited by likes of Sushma Swaraj and Modi who said not to waste their votes . Such confused people voted for BJP though they wanted to vote for APP. Now after the results they have realized,regret and now are firm in their mind that AAP not only has the potential but also capability to form the government.

The party which has been created,publicized and preaches about principles and integrity should keep its word if it needs to retain credibility in the long run !! Do you think the same ? Would love to hear your views.

    Unconditional Support ?

    To form a government in Delhi , both BJP and Congress have offered AAP , an Unconditional Support

    Arvind Kejriwal is asking ,

    ” For how long ? 3 weeks or 3 months ? “

    He cannot forget what those parties did to destroy the ” India Against Corruption ” movement in the Ramlila grounds in 2011

    So he has asked Sonia Gandhi and Rajnath Singh ,

    ” Forget about ‘ giving ‘ un-asked for unconditional support

    But since you have been so magnanimous , here are my 18 conditions for
    ‘ taking ‘ your support

    Do you accept these conditions ? “

    Sonia and Rajnath are silent !

    They don’t like being exposed !

    A Congress spokesman even said on TV channel last evening ,

    ” Most of what AAP proposes , require mere administrative decisions .
    Our support does not come in picture “

    A BJP stalwart said,

    ” How can there be any government without a strong opposition ?
    Of course , we will oppose you whenever we disagree with you .
    How can we tell you now , which of your 18 conditions , we will
    oppose – and when ?
    When time comes , we will get a signal from our high command “

    As Arvind knows too well , both BJP and Congress will simply wait for the very first opportunity to pull the rug from under the feet of AAP

    Irrespective of who introduces a ” No – Confidence ” motion in Delhi Assembly , each will give the other , an ” Unconditional Support ” !

    It is a pity , no TV anchor is asking them :

    Madam / Sir ,

    Does your unconditional support mean , you will decide ,

    > Who will introduce a no-confidence motion and when ?
    > Who will ask the LG , to recommend President’s Rule and when ?
    > Who will take the credit to discredit AAP , and when ?
    > Who will brag to Delhi-ites, ” We had told you AAP cannot perform ” ?

    But people of Delhi are asking following questions ( no doubt inconvenient to BJP / Congress ) ,

    > If unconditional support only means , mere postponement of the re-
    poll , why not get over with it , right now ?
    > What is game-plan of Congress / BJP ?
    > How can we put an end to this absurdity called ” Support ” ?
    > Isn’t it time to give 50 seats to AAP in re-poll ?

    it is a game of politics. with re-election public money is wasted. but my forming coalition or giving support to lokpal, ruling party is trying to gain mileage for upcoming elections. dirty politics that AAP has to manage by keeping their image clean and fulfilling peoples mandate

  5. hemen parekh says:

    How long ?

    It is no more a question ,

    ” Will AAP form a government in Delhi ? “

    Over the past 10 days , people of Delhi have decided that

    Question will be ,

    ” How long will that government last ? “

    My guess :

    It will last until after the 2014 national elections

    Neither Congress , nor BJP want to run the risk of a re-poll in Delhi

    They know that they will get wiped out in case of a re-poll

    But one thing is certain

    Despite its desire to keep BJP out of power in Delhi by propping up AAP , Congress will withdraw its ” outside support ‘ , if pushed to the wall by AAP

    That would depend on what are AAP’s priorities , viz:

    > Deliver on its promises of ” pro-poor ” reforms ( water / power / prices )


    > Launch a barrage of ” anti – congress ” / ” anti-corruption ” investigations

    Any attempt to embarrass / humiliate Congress , at this stage, will backfire !

    If that happens , Congress will not hesitate for a re-poll ,- come what may !

    The questions that AAP leaders must debate this morning , are :

    > Can we fulfill our promises to people without getting uninterrupted 6
    months to perform ?

    > What is more important in the short – term from viewpoint of Delhi-ites ?

    > If we do not get next 6 months to carry out our reforms , can we make
    a meaningful impact on 760 million voters in 2014 ?

    > If Congress withdraws its outside support after 2 months , will BJP come
    forward to support or will they gloat , ” We had told you AAP can’t last “

    > What will we achieve by focusing on past corrupt deeds of Congress ?
    People already know about these . How will exposing these deeds help
    people right now ?

    > Should not our TOP-MOST priority be to offer good governance ?

    > Can we not leave this matter ( of past corrupt deeds ) to Jan-lokpal
    and the judiciary ?

    Dear Arvind ,

    If you have learned your ” Game Theory ” ( John Nash ) well at IIT , you are expected to be a ” Rational Player ” , whose sole focus is ,

    ” Forget about the dis-advantages of the opponent ( in this case , discomfiture of Congress ) . That is NOT the winning strategy

    What move will secure AAP’s long-term advantage ? “

    I am not asking you to compromise with your principles

    Just get your priority right !
