Out of the 70 seats in the Delhi Legislative Assembly, the Aam Admi party is leading in 64, with both BJP and Congress decimated. I had predicted 45-50 seats for AAP, but certainly not 64.
The problems for Mr. Kejriwal and AAP will begin now.
I have no doubt that Mr. Kejriwal is personally an honest person, and intends to do good.However I am sceptical about how much he can do, and that for the following reasons :
1. The whole system in India has become so rotten that I doubt that it can be repaired by anyone, however well meaning.. Politicians can prepare all kinds of schemes and policies, but it is the bureaucrats who have to implement them, and unfortunately the bureaucracy in India, from top to bottom, has largely become corrupt. So even the best schemes usually end up as another source of making illegal money.
2.Mr. Kejriwal may be personally honest, but are all other MLAs and partymen of AAP also the same ?
3. How will Mr. Kejriwal solve the massive problems of price rise, unemployment, malnutrition, healthcare,etc ? I have grave doubts whether he has a solution to any of these problems. They certainly cannot be solved by sitting on a dharna.
I personally believe that the solutions to India's massive problems lie outside the system, and Kejriwal is within the system
However, since AAP has just now been elected let us give them a chance and see their performance, though with fingers crossed
