Delhi assembly sees clapping, sloganeering on first day
February 24, 2015 10:32 AM
Unprecedented scenes were played out on the first day of the new Delhi assembly as excited visitors - mostly families and supporters of the 67 AAP legislators - applauded and raised slogans all through the oath-taking ceremony. A huge round of applause was given to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as he took oath as well as Speaker Ram Niwas Goyal. Chants of "Vande Mataram" and "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" kept reverberating at regular intervals. However, the ceremony was marred by some over-enthusiastic supporters who booed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator Vijender Gupta when he criticised the government for not allowing the media inside the Delhi Secretariat.

Different languages spice up Delhi assembly oath-taking
February 24, 2015 10:20 AM
The swearing-in ceremony of the Delhi assembly on Monday witnessed a colourful mix of languages including Punjabi, Maithli, Urdu, English and even Sanskrit much to the liking of those present in the house. While the majority of the 67 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) members took oath in Hindi, some of them preferred other languages, adding the much-needed colour to the usually dreary ceremony. Assembly members by the name of Jarnail Singh, from Rajouri Garden and Tilak Nigar constituencies, took oath in Punjabi. Devendra Sehrawat (Bijwasan), Somnath Bharti (Malviya Nagar) and Nitin Tyagi (Laxmi Nagar) preferred English. Okhla legislator Amanatullah Khan and Haji Ishraq (Seelampur) took oath in Urdu, while Rituraj Jha (Kirari) and Sanjeev Jha (Burari) chose Maithili. Rituraj Jha was even dressed in traditional Maithili attire that included a white dhoti and a red kurta coupled with a bright yellow scarf and purple cap. Source: IANS

February 20, 2015 04:06 PM
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday inaugurated the 28th Garden Tourism Festival in New Delhi and said that his government will soon make Delhi one of the best tourist hubs in the country. "The parks and gardens of Delhi have great potential to be one of the best in the world. My government will soon make Delhi one of the best tourism hubs in the country. Work is in progress," Kejriwal said while addressing the people during the inaugration of the tourism festival at the south Delhi-based Garden of Five Senses. The Garden Tourism Festival was for the first time organised in 1988 in a Delhi Development Authority park (DDA) in Greater Kailash. The three day festival with the theme "Landscaping with Hanging Plants" will exhibit 400 different types of flowers along with various other plants. Musical nights will also be organised every evening during the occasion. Source: IANS
BJP defeat in Delhi a setback, says Naidu
February 20, 2015 11:40 AM
Parliamentary Affairs M. Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday said that party's defeat in Delhi assembly elections was a "setback" and the party will learn lessons from it. In an interview to Karan Thapar in "To The Point" programme on Headlines Today news channel, Naidu said that the party will need to reach out more to people and be able to win in a contest where opposition parties combine against it. The Bharatiya Janata Party could win only three of 70 seats in Delhi with the Aam Aadmi Party winning the remaining 67 seats. Asked if elections in Delhi should have been held soon after the Lok Sabha polls, Naidu said that this was a "tactical mistake". "Definitely every election is a lesson. It is a setback. We will analyse, understand and take corrective steps," he said. He claimed the outcome was decided the day the AAP promised to reduce power tariff by half and slash water bills, adding the BJP could not have made such promises as it is difficult to fulfil them.

I lose only when I fail myself: Kiran Bedi
February 19, 2015 11:49 AM
Defending her post Delhi assembly polls statement -- "It is not my defeat, it is a defeat of the BJP" -- former chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi on Wednesday clarified that she said so because she had not failed herself in person. "There are two parameters of measuring success. One is the outer success and another inner success. So given my circumstances and capacity with which I approached people and the campaign, I asked myself one question - Had I given my best shot," the former IPS officer asked while launching her co-authored book at the ongoing Delhi World Book Fair. "And I knew I had and that is why I said that I didn't lose. I lose when I fail myself and I win when I win for myself," she added. Bedi lost BJP's bastion of Krishna Nagar in east Delhi by 2,277 votes to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader S.K. Bagga, an advocate, who polled 65,919 votes to her 63,642 votes. Source: IANS

Delhi Assembly Constituencies Election Summary

The AAP did far better in Delhi assembly election of 2015 than what Congress managed in the 2014 General elections. The Arvind Kejriwal led party reminded one of the historic win registered by former PM Rajiv Gandhi in 1984 general elections. The AAP emerged victorious in 67 of the 70 assembly constituencies of Delhi, is no less than a miracle. The BJP was reduced to a mere 3 seats, while the Congress and the rest were wiped out completely. But the AAP will have the immense pressure of expectations to deliver on the promises it made.

Arvind Kejriwal's dual role in Aam Aadmi Party
In its first term in office, Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government lasted just 49 days before making a hasty exit. In its second term, in less than a month, the party is once again in crisis and this time it is Arvind Kejriwal’s ‘dual’ role between party and government that is the trigger that could well blow into a major inner party conflict. Is the controversy justified? One must seek answers from past experiences of political parties and the impact of ...Read More
Will Delhi and the Centre continue to remain at loggerheads
BJP rode into power on the back of a massive mandate. But this did not come without a bitter fight with a rising AAP that viewed itself as a serious alternative to a jaded UPA II and BJP, which is perceived as communal. Vicious political upstaging Accusations flew thick and fast between the BJP and AAP and once the General Elections saw BJP eliminating all opposition, AAP withdrew into obscurity. No one gave the party a serious chance to make ...Read More
Arvind Kejriwal Janata Darbars
Spectacle and Arvind Kejriwal seem inseparable. The Aam Aadmi Party supremo’s second innings as Delhi chief minister, after a huge mandate, is as spectacular as his first one – devoid of any compunction of playing to the gallery. Consider him resuming his Janata Darbars even before he is settled in Delhi! He still lives at his wife’s official accommodation at Kaushambi in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh and it is here that he is holding his Janata Darbars. Doesn’t this sound weird ...Read More
Can Modi and Kejriwal governments function together
How often did we find on national television channels the Bharatiya Janata Party leaders shooting down the Aam Aadmi Party’s promises as “utter lies” given the limitations of the Delhi government in implementing such promises? The BJP attacks on the AAP were based on the fact that Delhi was still not a full-fledged state and that any city government in Delhi therefore, had to depend on the Centre. The BJP’s reason therefore was that only a BJP government could yield ...Read More
How Delhi can change under new governance
At least three news items, within a couple of days of the Aam Aadmi Party taking control of Delhi, catch attention: Government water tankers reaching those parched unauthorised localities of the national capital that they had never visited before Early morning cleaning of drains in some other unauthorised colonies, which was a rarity The Delhi cabinet deciding, in its very first sitting on 16 February, to ban demolition in residential areas So hasn’t the new government in Delhi made a ...Read More
Is Punjab the next destination for Aam Aadmi Party
After Delhi, can Punjab be the next big haul for the Aam Aadmi Party? After all, it is the only state from where the AAP could win seats (four seats to be more precise) in the last general elections. So, shouldn’t the AAP now embark on a plan to do well in Punjab straightaway to make a dent in the Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party citadel well on time when it goes to poll in 2017? Yet there is some ...Read More
Kejriwals oath ceremony in Ramlila Maidan
It was on 14 February 2014 when Arvind Kejriwal had unceremoniously vacated the chief minister’s chair in a whiff – a decision that had surprised everybody. With a quirk of irony, exactly a year later – on 14 February 2015 – he swears in again as the Chief Minister of Delhi. St. Valentine’s Day has a special significance for the bespectacled leader and his Aam Aadmi Party. During this intervening period, he and his party have seen it all – ...Read More
10 ways in which Kejriwal revived his image in Delhi
A friendly next door neighbour persona, middle class appearance and uncharismatic personality make Arvind Kejriwal one of those middle class office-going people who are perennially grappled with the vagaries of existence. Like millions of youth, his non-elitist demeanour makes him look like any other morsel in the crowd. At the most, the only things that could have made Arvind Kejriwal stand out in the crowd were his IIT degree and the tag of (former) Indian Revenue Service officer – qualifications ...Read More
Narendra Modi to skip Kejriwal's swearing in ceremony
It is all about statecraft when two state heads meet. In ordinary circumstances, the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Arvind Kejriwal, the new Chief Minister of Delhi, could have been seen in this light. But it cannot be. After all, wasn’t it the very first meeting between the vanquished and the victor (in that order)? Remember a defeated Porus who demanded Alexander the great to treat him like a king – “Treat me, O Alexander, like a king”. ...Read More
Impact of Kejriwals Delhi win on National Politics
Narendra Modi’s war cry in Delhi is set to haunt him now. “Whatever happens in Delhi reflects the happening in the country,” he had said while kick-starting the Bharatiya Janata Party’s election campaign in Delhi on 10 January. In the election, Modi or BJP’s myth of invincibility was shattered! That the AAP could stage a spectacular comeback by bagging an incredible 67 of the 70 seats in Delhi and completely decimate the BJP could well prove a turning point in ...Read More
