BJP performance in Municipal Corporation of Delhi

With weeks to go for the MCD elections, the BJP is hard pressed to sell its achievements in Delhi Municipal corporations. It has dominated the Delhi Municipalities for ten years now and Delhites do not look very convinced about its achievements in general. Even the promises made in its manifesto have largely remained unfulfilled. It made 44 promises in its manifesto but fulfilled only six while the rest have either remained unfulfilled or work is in progress. 28 promises are ...Read More
AAP Government Performance in Delhi since 2015

Aam Aadmi Party government is more than two years old. It came to Delhi with high expectation and high hopes as the people gave its agenda an overwhelming thumbs up. However, the highlight of the two years of the government has been its tussle with the Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najib Jung and indeed the BJP led NDA government at the center. It has accused the BJP of not letting it work and blamed the LG for stalling its good work. ...Read More

Top achievements of the AAP government

It is rather easy to identify the biggest achievement of the Aam Aadmi Party government in the first five months of being at the helm of power in Delhi – the success of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in remaining in news and hogging the headlines! If at all there has been a Chief Minister amongst 29 others, who continuously made news nationally yet remained untainted with scams, it was Kejriwal. (Yet another Chief Minister making news is Madhya Pradesh’s Shivraj ...Read More
Top Controversies of AAP

Never before in independent India did the battle to rule Delhi assume such a bitter turn as it is now. In the last six months, the battle for supremacy in the national capital between the Aam Aadmi Party government- duly elected with overwhelming majority- and the city’s Lieutenant Governor (LG) has not just tested the limits of the country’s federal structure, but also the jurisdiction of an elected government. It exposed the complexities involved in governing a city-state that is ...Read More
Is Aam Admi Party really working for the people of Delhi or indulged in their own internal fighting.

Towards the end of May, at a time when the clash between Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party government snowballed into a major controversy, Manish Sisodia - the deputy chief minister of Delhi, tried to give the whole issue a certain dimension by saying that his government was actually fighting for the people. “We are not fighting for personal gains, but for the people's rights, their benefit, and against corruption,” Sisodia said at the much publicised 'Janta ...Read More

War between Arvind Kejriwal and Najeeb Jung

The ongoing public spat between Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the control of Delhi administration has exposed the grey areas in governance that require immediate redressal to ensure against any such crisis in the city state of Delhi. The immediate provocation was the appointment of Shakuntala Gamlin as acting Chief Secretary of Delhi by the Lieutenant Governor in spite of Kejriwal’s strong opposition on 15th May this year. This made the Chief Minister cry foul ...Read More
