Can the constitution of the Aam Aadmi Party help to keep it united in spite of Arvind Kejriwal ? The current implementation of the constitution though seems to cheat both citizens and volunteers of AAP.
Albert Einstein once said-“Strength of any Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Only if every single citizen feels duty bound to do his share in this defence are the constitutional rights secure.”
Replace country with the organisation or a political party and citizen with the member or activists/volunteer. Same equation glues the flock together. Top Netas (leaders) in independent India since PM Nehru era have the habit to misuse, jump or twist constitution as per their comfort. Wrong interpretation of constitution by leaders is another problem. The majority followers as activists and as citizens are left alone to face the water, electricity, land, price rise, governance fake medicine preferring son birth and so on.
Worst victims are women volunteers as evident from the past one year in Kumar Vishwas’ unfair treatment to the victim – which forced trial by media because of life threats to the victim as claimed by her on various channels. Yogender Yadav and Prashant the two ex-PAC removed claimed that this matter was given to internal Lokpal but Arvind Kejriwal blocked it and finally removed the Lok Pal-Admiral Ramdas.
Majority always suffers and are recycled if they rebel.`We the people` remain divided. We get reduced to a paper waste as a packaging `Kachra` dirt for the decision makers. There is nothing wrong in getting reduced to a waste provide there is betterment in the dreams but there should be a mechanism for fair hearing within the party.
Don`t Worry We shall make a New Constitution ?
When you dig a well, there’s no sign of water until you reach it. The pure water flows only if you remove the rocks and dirt out of your way. Aam Aadmi Party that was build out of a movement against corruption with a demand of a Lokpal ; however, after its stunning victory in Delhi it is at crossroads.
Arvind Kejriwal-Delhi CM and the National Coordinator of AAP is unable to follow his own standards and sustain the AAP vision after its success.
Constitution of AAP stands reduced to a joke. Instead of uniting all Arvind Kejrial has chosen to work only with the like minded followers and Yes Men.
AAP movement appears hijacked by few people. Media reports are spilling over as to how the constitution and norms of inner democracy were violated during the 28th.March National Council Meet and then shamelessly the top four leaders were expelled from primary membership on Monday midnight-20th.April.
It is sad to see the branches of the AAP tree are being chopped.
Majority members are still in favour of correcting the United AAP instead of a new party but the fear of `rebel` tag is holding them back.
Violation in Constitution has many holes. Removing AAP own Lokpal without any discussion and change in code of conduct are vital. Original members with voting rights are replaced by 60- 67 new MLAs and bouncers are paraded.
There is no time for hearing on the `accused` members. Ask high command where is the constitution promised to be followed beforethe elections in Delhi ? The possible reply you get is we shall make a new one. Image a new machine launched in Public before `elections`. After the success and acceptance by users the process documentation is changed or the CEO airs inability to apply the new process. Arvind Kejriwal latest dig to his volunteers is – Do you have Swaraj in your homes ? Do you have Swaraj in your work places?
What is promised cannot be delivered now because of compromise by the team in and around the Chief Minister of Delhi.
