1. Kejriwal's foolish activities, a great mistake by Delhi citizens,
2. None to be blamed, only People of Delhi, choosing an idiot who calls his Nation's Prime minister 'Psychopath'
Respected family members of this great holy Nation.
There's no hope for the odd-even formula in Delhi. Expect chaos, court cases, street fights, belligerent citizens and a hassled police force once it comes into operation a couple of days later. The doomsday scenario has been painted already - livelihoods are going to be hit; the economy is set to grind to a halt; bus stops and train stations will turn into warzones; patients with kidney, heart and other ailments are going to have a torrid time, and yes, how demeaning is it for someone travelling alone to office in his BMW to be part of a carpool with lesser people?
It appears plans are afoot to dodge the formula already. Smart people have started collecting fake CNG tickets and number plates. Others have kept the money ready, just in case. Since AAP volunteers are likely to get involved in making the idea work, expect a high-decibel political battle over the next two weeks. The state government plans to experiment with it for a fortnight; chances are it will be off the streets sooner. After that, it will be life as normal for everyone Delhi.
Yes, normal. :
The city loves its dirt, filth and polluted air. It cannot do without it daily fix of toxic gases and suspended particles. It cannot let go of its everyday comforts even if it means exposing kids to a hazardous, unhealthy life. It loves getting into arguments and winning them: It is some kind of obsessive compulsive disorder. Everybody's life is under threat from pollution, that's no big deal; but the government, whose ever it is, has to be shown to be foolish. The city, the city-state if you please, is indeed too normal for comfort, it cannot even react to dire warning signals.
What baffles about Delhi is the lack of the sense of ownership - everything is someone else's responsibility, not mine. The gangrape on 16 December, 2012 made Delhi look like a place that can still respond with a big heart and deep concern to existential matters such as safety. The message behind those candle light processions, frenzied street protest and the collective outrage was to make it a safe place, particularly for women.
Three years on, nothing has changed on the ground. That the city with its own unique demographic challenges needed better policing and this called for a re-arrangement of distribution of responsibilities involving the Central and state governments was soon lost in the din of politics.
The city does not even discuss it any more. If another 16 December takes place, there won't be many faces hanging in shame. Aren't we like that only? The same goes for all issues from filth on the streets to road infrastructure, and even mobile connectivity.
Indifference is wired into Delhi's genetic code. :
A part of the blame lies in its own history and the way it has shaped up over time. There have been just too many outsiders with limited interest in the city and no incentive to make it better. There are three cities inside one and all live distinct from each other - Lutyen's Delhi, the middle Delhi and the jhuggi-jhopdi Delhi. The intrinsic exclusivity of the three given the socio-economic backdrop of the lives they support and the self-interests that drive the segments comes in the way of a collective vision for the city. As people grow in close proximity to each other for long points of convergence that feeling of 'us' emerges.
Delhi still does not have it. :
Yes, Delhi's big ego and internal asymmetry will make the odd-even formula collapse. As the citizens continues to inhale toxic gases, they will still fail to understand that the matter is not about some Arvind Kejriwal or the Congress; it's about their own lives and the lives of their children.
If the city dies, nobody survives.
'No Regrets', Says Arvind Kejriwal, On Calling PM 'Psychopath'
Arvind Kejriwal said today that he did not regret calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a "coward and a psychopath" after the CBI raid on his offices earlier this month.
"I don't regret anything. I accept I use bad language, I speak from the heart," the Delhi Chief Minister said in an exclusive interview to NDTV.
"The PM uses flowery language...but your acts are bad."
Mr Kejriwal accused the ruling BJP of using all central agencies to target him and declared: "Kejriwal is not scared of the CBI, order any inquiry against me."
Challenging the CBI to "send 100 officers to the Delhi Secretariat and look into every file in my office", the Chief Minister reiterated that the reason for the raid was a file on details of alleged corruption in Delhi's cricket body DDCA (Delhi and District Cricket Administration), which was headed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for 13 years till 2013.
"Mr Jaitley was repeatedly told many times about the corruption, but no action was taken. He was president for 14 years and such a scam took place on a large scale. The moment we say there is corruption in DDCA, Mr Jaitley filed a defamation suit against us," Mr Kejriwal said.
When it was pointed out that Arun Jaitley was never named in connection with any corruption in the DDCA, Mr Kejriwal said those who investigated the cricket body said there were wrongdoings but never named anyone.
"It is almost like no one killed Jessica Lal. There was corruption, but ghosts did it," Mr Kejriwal quipped.
He also alleged that a senior journalist told him that his wife was told by a DDCA official to "come at night" if they wanted their son to be in the Delhi cricket team. The journalist, he said, was ready to testify at an inquiry.
***But Mr Kejriwal offered no proof of the allegation.***
1. A lesson for Bharatheeya, not to elect another kejriwal again,
2. Always test the politician under severe conditions, if he fails, not fit, put him in the waste box,
3. Do not allow any politician easy going in politics as kejriwal enjoying,
4. This foolish man forgetting his duties as CM Delhi,
5. Push his nose where he has no role to perform.
My view points
1. Beware of pseudo politicians,
2. Be cautious, never support, such garbage rule us,
3. Always alert and watch the performance, if any one leaving his track ( duty), give him a slap, your vote!
