My experiment with politics Right from the time I started apprehending the political system of the country my political aggression and bitterness intensified on the ground that the main purpose of forming the government has never been achieved by any of the governments (working for poor people, building transparent system, providing basic amenities and eradicating social disparity ).
A few months ago when I joined the student’s wing of a newly formed political party which was formed for the sake of doing clean politics then I had the hope that I was doing my bit of job in bringing a new transparent administrative and political system in the country. Although this party was incapable on national level but at least they could have made an alternative political & administrative model for the nation and the states.
Let me ask myself why i joined this party???I ever felt greedy for getting a ticket for myself or relatives???Had i ever thought to become a full-timer in the party??I am running any business entity which requires favor of the govt???
Questions might be uncountable but the answer to all such questions will be a big “NO”.
Let me put it this way I am a student and occupied with plenty of works and i believe in acting rather than sitting and criticizing the principles of the AAP was lucrative for me .I never had any intention to become a political leader or to become a full-time party member i traveled frequently to different party meetings, Party headquarters and election campaigns on my own expense and in fact lacs of volunteers did the same or even more than what I did.The one reason behind all these sacrifices was just to bring a clean pro-common men govt. which could work on the principles and on ideology.
Today, I realized that the AAM ADMI PARTY has also become very professional. For them Ideology, principles, Internal Lokpal, Internal democracy has no more value. I have been taught in management that the followers need not to follow the leaders blindly but they also need to question leaders at right time but in AAP if you question the leader “AK-67” you will be shown exit gate.
For me at this point democratic leadership die and autocratic mode gets active (one of the agenda against which AAP has campaigned ). If you ask the volunteers I am certain that they will say “This issue came in picture during ticket distribution when some tickets were been given against the party policies in fact everyone was disturbed due to influence of some goons in the party on ticket distribution”.
The decision of showing exit door to party intellectual think-tank is very rubbish. The political belief system of lacs of volunteers like me has once again weakened and shaken. Even if there were some differences between Arvind Kejriwal & YY+PB(Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan) they should have been resolved technically. Differences in opinion are fruitful as they give way to think beyond the circumstances and look for alternatives. I may also be shown exit door for expressing my opinions….ohhh i forget that volunteers like me have no place in party now…
We will continue to strive for bringing the original version of AAP..This party is not a one man army but the party of lacs of volunteers..
