Situation in Delhi changes; media anarchists’ conspiracy to precipitate chaos punctured

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

The TV channels that were trying to execute the secret agenda of BJP to stymie the forward march of AAP would no more be able to precipitate chaos, as Arvind Kejriwal has withdrawn his Dharana demonstration after the Union Government took steps against the erring police officers. At least the present phase of their proactive plutocratic mischief in the guise of crying for democracy is over.

Kejriwal has termed it a victory for the people. But, victory is far away from reality, inasmuch as the police is yet to be put under control of the Government of Delhi.

Delhi is a place of crime, because the criminals take advantage of absence of answerability of the police to the Delhi Government. This must change and the Parliament, with the onus lying on the Union Government, must make necessary provisions for the change.

And, to make sure that the change comes, the issue raised by Kejriwal must not be belittled and/or abandoned.

The Issue raised by Kejriwal is of Utmost Importance

The TV Journalists who had taken about Rs. 500 crores to brainwash Indians in support of BJP in 2004 elections are back in their shrewd trade. They are spewing venom against Kejriwal, projecting his campaign against misconduct of the Delhi Police, as “drama” being enacted in Delhi to “divert public attention from his inability to rule”. And, as seen in TIMES NOW channel, appreciators of Kejriwal action are being muzzled in discernible attempt to divert public attention from the basic issue raised by the AAP leader.

The issue is of utmost public importance. Law and order problem in Delhi is menacing. It is shameful yet well-known that the capital city of India has earned a nasty name as capital city of offenses against women. This is going on; because the Delhi Police is not answerable to Government.

The Delhi Government has no control over the Delhi Police, when the said Government is responsible for maintenance of law and order.

The main purpose of any Government is to give the people a living environment where miscreants shall not be ruling the roost. And, this environment cannot be created if the police is not controlled by the Government.

The purpose of the people of Delhi in changing a Government for a better one would be lost, if the police do not carry orders from and remain answerable to the new political Government of Delhi.

Creation of an Assembly for Delhi, with provision for that Assembly to ensure running of a responsible political Government is meaningless, if the said government is debarred from giving good governance because of being devoid of powers over the police.

Kejriwal’s ongoing Dharana demonstration is meant against this administrative anarchy. So, it is wrong to allege that he is an anarchist.

The issue he has raised is specific.

Whether the police shall be answerable to the political Government or not, is the issue.

The situation has become, and is bound to become putrefying, because the police under control of the Union Government under grip of the Congress Party is disobeying the AAP Government’s orders for giving the people an environment where miscreants shall not be ruling the roost.

Kejriwal wants change of this spoiling system.

So, the issue raised by him is of utmost importance and the step he has taken is the best step possible in the present context.

True seekers of power to people must support him.

The entire nation should stand with Kejriwal at this critical juncture

Kejriwal has no political ideology. But at the present juncture, he deserves total support of whosoever loves India.

When police browbeats the political government, if people stand mute spectators, democracy shall certainly die. This is going to happen in Delhi.

As I watch what is happening at Delhi, it seems Kejriwal is the last hope for democracy. The oppressive wing of corrupt administration – the police – is refusing to cooperate with Delhi Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, and this is enough to discard all reservations against him and to stand with him like the Himalayas have stood with India so far.

Kejriwal is not a creation of any political economy. And, he is not a professional politician. In him, there is no commitment to any political economy. To people like me he is prima facie unacceptable as a political leader; because there is no political economy in his approach. Absence of political economy in his political evolution means that he is not specific in his class approach. In other words, he is not against the status quo.

Yet the way Delhi Police is opposing him makes it clear that he is the people’s Chief Minister and therefore, the anti-people wing of administrative horror is refusing to cooperate with him.

On the spot direction of Delhi Law Minister to the area police to immediately act against a pack of miscreants, engaged, to his information, in illegal activities, was a just order from a political government that has replaced a very anti-people corrupt political set-up. The police not only refused to carry out the orders of the Minister, but also shocked him with stark insubordination and obnoxious contempt for the cabinet, the law minister being a member of the collective body of ministers called the cabinet. This is sheer disgusting. No sane mind can accept that the police browbeats the State Ministry.

It is more shocking for the country that instead of supporting him in giving Delhi a working administration that acts to restore people’s confidence in their government, the two major parties in Delhi’s political arena are shamelessly spewing their venoms against Kejriwal.

In such circumstances, for people of India, the Capital City State has emerged a real battleground for democracy.

The party of profiteers, traders, hoarders, black-marketeers, public sector destroyers, disintegrators, irresponsible orators; and the party of favor seekers, shameless sycophants and dynastic rule supporters are siding with the police when Kejriwal, for the first time in Delhi’s life, is trying to make his government a people’s government.

In many articles I have posted here, I have expressed my considered views against Kejriwal, to the extent of even suspecting him as a mask of the practitioners of political economy of capitalism; because he has offered no alternative economic ideology. But, as I have been watching him since the elections to Delhi Assembly, I have increasingly got the inclination to say that he is the best to have happened to our motherland. He did not hanker after power when majority seat gainer BJP refused to come forward to honor the people’s desire to have a new government. The second position holder in terms of majority – Kejriwal – for the first time in Indian republican history, wanted direction from the people as to whether it would be proper not to form the government and on the basis of popular wish, he decided to take up the responsibility.

So, it is clear, he is a leader who is created by the people to bring out a change of rule by the enemies of the people. Leaders creat revolutions; but revolution of people against misrule has created him.

And, now, when he is trying to give the people a government of their own, the Police is refusing to take his orders, in the guise of law and order! And, the very same politicians whose misrule has ruined the people are attacking him.

It is good for India that he has refused to be browbeaten by the police and the unscrupulous politicians.

Forget party politics, forget political economy. Stand with Kejriwal and stand with his fight against misrule in the name of rules.

It may be situational, but is essential.
