proved extremely costly in Lok Sabha elections the Aam Aadmi Party has publicly apologised to Delhi’s voters even as they changed their mind on seeking a referendum on what their next move in Delhi should be A grim Arvind Kejriwal emerged from the meeting of his MLAs this morning to announce that his party "will start preparing for fresh elections" This comes a day after the former Delhi chief minister did a U-turn on their demand for early assembly elections when he met the Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor (L-G) Najeeb Jung asking him not to dissolve the assembly just yet AAP leader Somnath Bharti PTI Asked why the party had dropped the referendum plan former Delhi law minister Somnath Bharti told Firstpost "Today was the legislature party meeting of MLAs There we decided that the best course available to us was going for elections because there is no possibility of forming a government Even if we go for referendum what will we tell people There has to be possibility if people are to be approached" With 27 MLAs (excluding Vinod Kumar Binny who was expelled from the party) AAP is nine short of a majority in a house of 70 seats And with the Congress on Tuesday categorically ruling out the possibility of extending support to AAP (like they had done in December) AAP simply does not have the numbers to form a government But what was the rationale for going for a referendum in the first place What was the reason some MLAs wanted Kejriwal to try and form the government again "Their argument was that AAP had been labelled as a party that ran away from government And that the only way to dispel that tag was to form the government again and prove that perception wrong" said Bharti Delhi has been under President’s Rule (and the Assembly under suspended animation) since February when the minority government led by AAP resigned accusing the Congress and the BJP of colluding to prevent the passage of the Jan Lokpal Bill Unhappy with L-G’s decision not to dissolve the assembly and call for fresh elections AAP had then moved the Supreme Court challenging the President’s Rule The apex court in April in response to AAP’s petition had clarified that the L-G was empowered to revoke the one-year proclamation of President’s Rule and call for fresh polls And now the seismic shift in the political scenario in India with the declaration of the Lok Sabha polls where AAP failed to win any of the seven parliamentary seats in Delhi has come a jolt to the party forcing it to re-assess its political strategy going forward That explains AAP’s initial flip-flop over forming government in Delhi and finally Kejriwal’s apology to voters for quitting as CM before announcing that his party was ready for polls BJP’s sweep of Delhi winning all 7 Lok Sabha seats and the lead it has taken in terms of vote-share (464 percent to AAP’s 329 percent) is bound to have an impact on AAP’s electoral fortunes in Delhi It is unlikely say psephologists going by voting patterns in the Lok Sabha election that AAP will be able to win anywhere near the number of seats it had won in December (Read full report here) But AAP MLAs believe that without the "manufactured Modi-wave" driving the BJP campaign this time it will not be able to repeat its Lok Sabha performance in the Delhi assembly election "We are not worried at all How will BJP answer for the huge corruption in Delhi’s municipal corporation (MCD) that it has been controlling for the last eight years MCD is the mother of all corrupt departments A manufactured wave brought by Modi in the Centre will not work in Delhi elections… Delhi is ready it has not accepted BJP in the state" said Bharti Asked about the significant lead BJP has over them in terms of vote-share the AAP MLA said "The vote-share of the BJP has gone up not because of the candidates it is because Modi’s manufactured wave Modi is the not answer for Delhi government Modi is not the answer for MCD corruption Modi is carrying the likes of Yeddyurappa with him and creating a wave by spending thousands of crores" AAP’s priority now said the former Delhi law minister was to communicate and reach out to voters "We will approach voters We’ll be holding public meeting to discuss developmental work The MLA fund has been released now We will hold our mohalla sabhas and chalk out the needs of the constituency and spend the fund accordingly" Bharti said By: Express News Service | Published: June 11 2014 12:27 am Related News The tragedy of 26 college students drowning in the Beas river could have been avoided but for the appalling incompetence of the Larji dam authorities — and by extension the Himachal Pradesh State Electricity Board — in releasing flood waters without deference to standard operating procedure On the evening of June 8 the Larji dam’s operators opened the gates of the hydroelectric project’s reservoir upon realising its waters were full to the brim The flash flood that followed washed away the college students from Hyderabad who were in Kullu-Manali for a sightseeing trip That the managers of the project were grossly negligent is beyond doubt For starters it is puzzling how the dam’s waters were full during peak summer when there is an acute shortage of electricity across most parts of the country Even if this were to be explained away as poor demand for electricity in the state there is simply no excuse for the manner in which the authorities chose to dispose of the surplus water which ultimately caused the tragedy They stopped power generation in two of three units that same evening a dangerous decision that likely led to a steady increase in water levels given the dam’s limited capacity The HPSEB’s defence that the national load dispatch centre had instructed the Larji station to lower its power generation to “save the grid” cuts no ice The Larji dam has an installed capacity of 126 MW which is hardly a burden on the national grid The folly of opening the flood gates without proper warning — the state authorities claim sirens were blared and hooters were sounded — is even more egregious Summer in Himachal sees a significant influx of tourists especially in Kullu and Manali More vulnerable is the local population and the livestock that graze along river banks The dam authorities have reportedly been releasing waters in this fashion for a week now Their actions show a criminal lack of sensitivity to public safety Suspending the dam’s engineers as the state government has done will not suffice Now that the HP high court has taken cognisance of this tragedy the state government must follow through with a comprehensive investigation into the incident and take stern action at the managerial level where there has been non-compliance or dereliction of duty Meanwhile rescue operations which have come in for criticism due to a shortage of searchlights and divers must be completed expeditiously For all the latest

to tell her that I am a bit of a coward at heart afraid of being dubbed “intolerant” and — the latest insult — “anti-national” So I produced the time-tested excuse of “being busy” an excuse that can only be partially true but always difficult to disprove Governments in power do not like criticism Like god they crave approval and praise “The king can do no wrong” is the applicable proverb But unfortunately there is democracy to consider and modern democracies throw up far too many voices of dissent Our present government came in riding on people’s expectations and hope It came in on the back of a leader who promised to concentrate on development and governance Nobody just nobody can say that he is not trying The ministers at the Centre are running scared even those who had acquired adverse reputations in the past are presently on good behaviour There are some like Suresh Prabhu Piyush Goyal and Nitin Gadkari who are working overtime to deliver Of course there is also Smriti Irani She was specially chosen to saffronise our temples of learning And she is going about her job with a sledgehammer that is bound to prove counter-productive There are many plus points that this government can justifiably be proud of The use of the Aadhaar card and the opening of bank accounts that the poor never dreamt of owning and the direct transfer of subsidies to their accounts is a miraculous cure for a vital deficiency in governance There are many such healthy schemes that state the intent of the government They will require time to bear fruit But at the cost of being classified as anti-national I must boldly state that I disapprove vehemently of doctored and concocted videos designed to send leftist students to jail To my mind such concoction of evidence is worse than the crime the student is supposed to have committed and deserves a punishment equal to the one sought to be inflicted It frightens people like me when Delhi’s lawyers ape their counterparts in Pakistan and go on a rampage in the hallowed precincts of our temples of justice attempting to lynch prisoners in the custody of the police It frightens people like me when the police force of which I was once a proud member stands and stares and does nothing when nationalists take the law into their own hands in the very presence of the upholders of the law It frightens me even more when I suddenly realise that the man at the head of this force is studiedly selective in the enforcement of the law If shouting slogans against the injustices of the caste system or against the perceived inequalities suffered by the poor in our land is interpreted as being anti-national I am afraid that many many more students activists and others crying out for justice are going to be branded in a similar manner That is totally unacceptable And where will so many anti-nationals be sent Our jails are full already They cannot be sent to the developed countries of the “Christian” West Those countries do not operate on the basis of religious beliefs At present they seem to be accepting only nationalists who welcome PM Modi every time he visits their shores They are hardly likely to return to Mother India because they like the quality of life there The people there do not care what religion you follow or what you eat and how you are attired If you cheer the Indian cricket team though they are playing Test matches against your new country that will not be cause for painting you as anti-national Assorted minorities (Sikhs exempted as they are partners in the Punjab government) Dalits leftists intellectuals NGOs funded by the Ford Foundation and of course people like me who refuse to vote for the party on ideological grounds have all been categorised as anti-national The nationalists on the other hand are those who support whatever the party says or does even if that entails murdering the father of an IAF corporal for allegedly killing a calf (which he did not) or beating up an accused in a courtroom for raising anti-national slogans (which he did not) There are “nationalists” in Pakistan who speak and act in this very manner all for their fatherland Our nationalists are all for our motherland The rub lies in the fact that both the ones on the other side of the border and within ours will not take up arms to fight in real wars They prefer to prove their might against captives and soft targets My suggestion to the high court and Supreme Court is not to send these nationalist lawyers to Tihar jail They should be sent to the Kashmir front to fight the enemy that lurks there At present many “anti-nationals” are part of our fighting arms like Akhlaq’s son They get killed at times Why should out nationalist lawyers not be made to do some real
