That a minister of the party could have forged his educational credentials,kills the AAPs fundamental claim of probity in public life and self-avowed fight against corruption Ironically the man Jitender Singh Tomar who doesn’t even know the whereabouts of his imaginary college was the principal law minister of the party Following his exposure came allegations of wife battering against another leader who couldn’t be minister this time because of his alleged misdeeds last year The man in question Somnath Bharti had a terrible reputation of misogyny and racial behaviour when he was a minister last time AFP image Before Tomar and Bharti there were stings that involved money and horse-trading and a steady erosion from its leadership Each leader who left the party appeared so rancorous The problem is not with the AAP but with its claims and more importantly the way it has mainstreamed itself into Indian politics In its vision document the party had said: “Politics itself is not a dirty word – it is our current breed of politicians who have made it dirty Aam Aadmi Party wants to make politics a noble calling once again” But the decay of the AAP shows that politics is still a dirty word that it hasn’t been able to change In fact the party is contributing to the dirt even as it’s rotting from inside because that’s how politics in India is In their quest for political power what Arvind Kejriwal and his yes-men chose to ignore is the fact that it’s the same catchment of people that political parties are drawing its leaders and supporters from Jitender Sing Tomar could have gone to any other party but for reasons of convenience he chose AAP He certainly couldn’t have been serious about the fight against corruption with bogus certificates and a sinister plan Similarly there were allegations of “tampering with evidence” against Bharti Tomar’s predecessor in the last AAP cabinet who is now facing charges of domestic violence Perhaps there are more skeletons in AAP’s cupboard because it’s impossible to find gems in this dirty pool of politics unless one is extremely fastidious AAP initially appeared to be one but was soon adopted by mainstream politics which American President Barrack Obama had famously characterised as a “contact sport” If you stay in it longer you will get dirty The AAP Kejriwal and his acolytes certainly could have tried an alternative path that it had envisioned originally had it retained the core of its soul it chose to purge – leaders such as Shanthi Bhushan Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav Prashant Bhushan saw the rot in its infancy itself and an astute Shanti Bhushan alerted both the party supporters and the nation about the leadership-transformation Kejriwal was wilfully undergoing Opposing the candidature of at least 12 candidates for their “dubious reputation” in the February assembly election in Delhi Prashant Bhushan had said that “"there were a lot of complaints about the kind of candidates selected especially those who had been para-dropped into the party recently” Two of them were denied tickets but the others were chosen for their winnability that essentially came from money and muscle In fact many of them faced charges ranging from bribery amassment of wealth and thuggery In hindsight one should probably re-evaluate the reasons for AAP’s landslide victory in Delhi Describing how it’s different from other parties the AAP’s critical claims were these: “In all political parties today criminals and mafia goons are given election tickets Such people will never be given tickets in our party A thorough screening process will ensure that no one with a criminal record or proven corruption charges could stand for elections from our party Every member of the Aam Aadmi party will have to follow a strict internal code of conduct or internal Lokpal Any citizen can present proof of wrongdoing against a party member If internal Lokpal finds the party member guilty he or she will be subjected to appropriate disciplinary action as decided by the internal Lokpal” But in reality it allegedly chose criminals goons and people with power because it wanted to win What’s worse is the way Kejriwal and his cronies are parroting the stock refrain of political parties that it had deemed as corrupt and criminal to justify the rot within When Bharti made disparaging remarks against some African women and led a vigilante raid in their residence in Delhi he justified them and cried political witch-hunt Today he and his party have a problem with the way the police have arrested Tomar and sees BJP conspiracy in every self-made adversity When people such as Bhushan and Yadav reminded him of the party’s purpose and principles he engineered their ouster In three years since he became a politician he has mastered a language that George Orwell once thought was “designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind” Only unreasonable people have changed the course of history Kejriwal doesn’t look like an unreasonable man He is a politician with a constituency which is increasingly looking similar to that of the Congress the RJD or the BJP When both the leaders and the voters come from this captive cesspool how can it be any different In the end as Americans would say all politics is applesauce
