Kejriwal’s Dirty Deeds Stink to High Heaven

By Salil Gewali, Shillong published on August 6, 2016


The public should know the antecedents of a person before voting him to power. Usually when one gets hold of the position of power, it is very likely that he will trample on his inner values. The case is more evident among our political leaders in INDIA. The best example before us now is the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who climbed the ladder of success with the strength of his holier than thou attitudes. He was seemingly a man of principles, no doubt. He would never compromise on any unlawful activities. Corruption was what he vehemently condemned and promised to weed out if he would come to power.

At the top of his voices he had blasted all those leaders who were corrupt and looted the nation. His activities had certainly given sleepless nights to Sonia Gandhi, Sheila Dixit, Lalu Pd. Yadav, Mulayam Singh Yadav, P Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal, Mayawati, et al. The general people were too glad that they got a leader who gleefully go around in an auto-rickshaw and speak the language of hard austerity. He asserted that he would stop at nothing for the sake of the country. He convinced the public that he would leave no stone unturned to improve the living status of the underprivileged. This is how the AAP Chief became the darling of the masses.

Well, when the country is plunged into the mire of corruption the people certainly wished for such leaders with high ethical values. They want the leaders who genuinely work for the country and also can deal a mighty blow to those who are involved in any kind of unfair practices.

But sadly enough, now we see just the opposite. After a few months of “nautanki” he willfully raised the salary of the MLAs by whopping 400%, beside considerable hike in a number of perks. Is it not against what he stood for? Is it not a total betrayal of the public trust? The Chief Minister of New Delhi never gave a second thought to give a warm hug to the notorious Lalu Pd. Yadav who got the bad name in the annals of corruption in the country. Is it not an unethical U-turn?

Well, Sheila Dixit’s misdeeds are fully erased from his memory now. He virtually made a clean break from the campaign against the Congress’s misrules and its immeasurable corruption. This holy AAP Chief is now battling for the depraved MLAs whose dirty deeds stink to the high heaven. Near a dozen already arrested.

What’s more? He lost his sanity a few weeks when his principal secretary and other officers were arrested allegedly on the charges of bribing and misuse of the power of office. Still more dangerous is that Mr Kejriwal is too quick to favor a certain section of NGOs/student bodies whose roars might send a tremor through the integrity of the Nation. He speaks in any tones, any rhymes and for any one if that ensure the political dividend for his party. Adding fuel to fire is his main forte.

One is afraid, this is how an upright person become a self-centered villain when he gets to occupy the seat of power.
