The AAP’s thumping victory has come as huge relief for the party and its chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who faced rebellion in the party after the electoral reverses in Delhi as well as in the Assembly polls in Punjab and Goa earlier this year.
Soon after the civic polls loss, the AAP had plunged into a turmoil after senior leader Kumar Vishwaslaunched a rebellion over the ways the party was run. The leadership managed to cool his tempers but one of the MLAs Kapil Mishra, who was considered close to Vishwas, levelled allegations against Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Health Minister Satyendar Jain.
Arvind Kejriwal, who was known for criticising each and every move of Narendra Modi and BJP has remained quite in last few months. His tactic has worked. He is working more towards development and is making his work speak. This is a good trend, which he should follow.
The chief minister had been surrounded by a coterie of leaders who have barred his access to party cadre. Let alone workers, even MLAs and ministers were not able to speak with Kejriwal. That is why Kejriwal has replaced his advisor Ashish Talwar with Ashish Khetan. Now he is giving priority to open direct communication channels with legislators and party cadre instead of earlier way of communication through state in-charge and district in-charge.
People will surely support them, if they do good work. Instead of criticizing politics, it is better if welfare politics take place. Arvind has finally come to know his mistake. Hope he remains like this, so that AAP can survive even BJP in fray.
