The story of Arvind kejariwal is not an extraordinary one but it has an essence of greatness. As an officer of Indian civil services he knows everything about the inner part of government. When he joined Anna Andolan challenges were difficult for him. This is because he did not started his career a politician. It becomes extremely difficult for a person to launch a campaign against politicians specially if he is not related to politics. The case of Anna was different as he was powerful. The power of Anna came from the large scale inclusive work which he has done early in his career. Anna's work includes the starting grain bank, irrigation projects and literary movements which were huge success in that era. It gave power to Anna so that he could take on any corrupt politician. However, Kejariwal was powerless when he started his career for the national movement of civil society.
When Anna Andolan was in full swing and when it was assumed that nation will get the strong Lokpal bill, the Congress party strike back. They played the natural game of divide and rule which was inherited from their British counterparts. Dramatically they challenged the Anna and his members to join politics if they have the courage. This was the game which Civil society failed to understand. When nation was close to getting a strong Lokpal bill, the decision of forming a political party by Arvind Kejariwal came forward. At that time it looked like a political mistake but now it seems that he was correct. At that time lot of criticism happened and stories of Arvind betraying Anna came forward.
As far as Anna Andolan is concerned the decision was really a set back. This is because it was the game of congress to divide Civil society in which they succeeded. It was the same time when Congress ended the political career of Baba Ramdev who was looking like a threat. Congress got success in breaking the relationship between Kejariwal and Kiran Bedi. Most important of all this was that they succeeded in pending a strong Lokpal Bill.
Now that time has gone and new equations has been formed. Kejariwal and his Aam Admi Party has got the huge success in Delhi elections. Though time is looking difficult for the one party to form a goverment, there is huge pocibility that re-election will happen and AAP could thien emerge as a victorious party.
Even in some case if new election will not happen then there will be huge challenges ahead of AAP as a major opposition. First one would be of tackling corruption in his own party if in case it would happen in future. The second would be the admissions of students in various colleges. This is because in Delhi lot people depend upon politicians for the admission of their children. When this so called fathers will go to any AAP MLA for getting admission then it would be interesting to guess the replipes from members of assembly.
The success of AAP is huge in case if we calculate the time they invested in the election. There is no doubt that they got success because of already weakened Congress. The impact of brand Anna and brand Kejariwal also played a huge role. Raj Thackeray in Maharashtra required a time of around three years to get 12 seats. In that case a time of a year and gain of more than 27 seats is huge.
As it has happened in the past with Janpraksh Narayan's Janata Dal that people gave them power mainly on he issue of non-corrupt party and then they turned out be a false promise, it should not happen with AAP party. At least for now this is what we actually expect from Arvind Kejariwal and his Aam people.
