AAP – Aam Aadmi Party
Have you ever wondered how a party comes from nowhere and manages to capture 28 seats out of 70 in a State assembly election? Normally parties start winning at the Panchayat level, then the town level, the city level and so on… So how can one explain this meteoric rise for a party?
Not having a majority, it gets support from the very party it painted as the most corrupt and then jousts with them on a daily basis. After just 49 days in the office, the party resigns on a contrived controversy and its chief gets written up as being Prime Minister material in the run up to the Lok Sabha elections.
Displaying delusions of grandeur, the party (AAP) contests in almost 400 plus constituencies across the country and even manages to win 4 seats! Was this to just cut into the votes of an emerging juggernaut? A B-team play?
Even more incredibly, it captures 67 out of 70 seats in the following Delhi assembly elections! How could this miracle happen? Was there an invisible “hand” that was helping them?
Read this book. The answers are all in there. It comes with incisive cartoons that cut to the root of the matter and slice through the layers of obfuscation created by this party.
The book also exposes the extent to which media can be a fawning partner in projecting a party if the fee is right. Some journalists even forgot their “dharma” and joined the party, dreaming of becoming Chief Ministers of the future!
While it is easy to blame the politicians for the extent to which corruption exists in the country, this book lays bare the misdeeds, mistakes, and misrepresentation by the media. The Fourth Estate must share the blame for the state of the country as much as the politicians, business, and the bureaucracy.
