EXCLUSIVE: Excerpts from Anna Hazare's interview with The Sunday Indian

TSI: When your agitation was at its peak, he (Arvind Kejriwal) was often seen next to you. In fact, the entire credit for his political rise goes to you.
AH: (Laughs) When the obsession for a chair goes into someone’s head, then principles go for a toss. I used to think that Arvind was a “tyagi”, a selfless man who thinks about the society and the country before self. But now, he is obsessed with only one thing – how to become a Prime Minister. It is now very clear that AAP and Kejriwal are thinking of power more, than of the nation. All the politicians are tarred with the same brush.TSI: But Kejriwal continues to mention publicly and in the media that you are his Guru, philosopher, mentor and a father-figure to him.

TSI: How do you see him from your perception?
AH: Well, what can I say? After he became the Chief Minister of Delhi, he did not even bother to phone me. Calling me a guru, philosopher and mentor publicly is only to draw electoral mileage from me. He has used me to extract political mileage and continues to do so.

TSI: How do you see Kejriwal’s resignation from the post of Delhi CM on the issue of Jan Lokpal bill. Do you think it was the right move?
AH: It was a totally ill-conceived and a hasty decision. He should have used the power to change the face of New Delhi and make it a model for others. He should have thought of contesting the Lok Sabha elections in 2019 after he delivered the results in New Delhi. Once people see the results in New Delhi, then people would be receptive to him. But the greed to become the Prime Minister overshadowed his judgement. What was the need for resigning on the issue of Jan Lokpal Bill? He could have brought in the changes by remaining in power.

TSI: How do you view the agitations of AAP? Do you think it is reflective of their commitment for a cause or are they playing to the gallery to remain in headlines?
AH: This is the result of obsession for power. Service should be the goal and not power. When the latter becomes the prime objective, then service takes a back seat and erosion of values start. This is what has happened in the case of AAP

12 REASONS TO REJECT Arvind Kejriwal

>>>>Read the latest article of Prof. Arindam Chaudhuri that came out in "The Pioneer" yesterday!<<<<<


In the few months that the Aam Aadmi Party chief has spent in electoral politics, he has dissappointed those who had hoped he would be an alternate political force in Delhi and also exposed himself as incapable of leading the nation

I voted for AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal during the Delhi Assembly election, but I had also mentioned then that for the general election, one must vote for Narendra Modi. At that point of time, I had believed that Mr Kejriwal was not (yet) mature enough to be considered for central leadership. Now, I am convinced he is not even mature enough for the next Delhi Assembly election. Here are a dozen reasons why you should not vote for Mr Kejriwal:

Reason #1: Anna Hazare says that “obsession to become Prime Minister has gone into Arvind Kejriwal’s head”. That’s exactly why we should not vote for Mr Kejriwal. Aiming to become the Prime Minister is nothing wrong. But the change agent, who the country is looking out for right now, should think of doing only the right things without compromising on issues; not an infatuated man who is visibly obsessed with becoming the Prime Minister. Mr Kejriwal could not even stay away from his greed to become the Chief Minister of Delhi and took acquisitive support from the same Congress, against which his entire election campaign had been mobilised. Similarly, and shockingly, he has voiced his intemperate support for khap panchayat and is making all those venal compromises that every politician, who he speaks of against, makes.

Reason #2: We do not want a leader who does nothing himself, but spuriously doles away the precious and little savings of the previous Government in ridiculously thoughtless, populist and vote-bank oriented subsidies to the middle-class and rich, who can in any case afford to pay their bills, including those for water and electricity.

Reason #3: We do not want Gandhi-topi wearing vandal MLAs implementing a vigilante justice mechanism to replace our already poor policing system. Imagine a Prime Minister who grandiosely claims, “I am an anarchist, so let my MLAs and MPs do such acts too”. We want the dignity of the Gandhi cap to remain. In fact, every Congress member and BJP member must also wear the same cap and roam around until AAP members stop using it to spread group fear.

Reason #4: We do not want crony capitalism to be replaced by crony journalism, where people like Mr Manish Sisodia, Ms Shazia Ilmi, Mr Ashutosh, Mr Jarnail Singh and others are carefully selected and given tickets due to their connections in different media houses; and those like Mr Punya Prasun Bajpai, who have not yet been given tickets, kept for their benefit in media houses, to be colluded with and used slyly when required in order to manipulate the unsuspecting masses by playing up farcically planned comments in so-called live interviews, and by playing down questions that are of crucial importance to the nation.

Reason #5: Akin to the Mao Tse-tung’s Little Red Book, we do not want fatuously illogical books like Swaraj by Mr Kejriwal to be the book guiding our already challenged democracy. In the book, his heart might be at the right place, but his utterly uninitiated and intellectually handicapped suggestions, for example of making ‘mohalla committees’ decide everything across the country, are prescriptions for chaos, and would result in CPM-type local goondaism and anarchy all across the country.

Reason #6: We are tired of hearing one slogan-mongering answer to all questions: “We are doing this for the aam aadmi”. It seems the leaders of the AAP have negligible intellect, no vision and hide behind one answer to cover all their illiteracy. We need a leader who knows who is the true aam aadmi, and really works for them, instead of using their sentiments to take the masses for a ride.

Reason #7: We are tired of hearing that everyone is corrupt and a thug; we already have a fair idea of who is corrupt. We need solutions and we need changes, not random, sweeping, unsubstantiated statements and unending blame games. We also do not want him making beguiling allegations against various leaders by touring their home States, picking up a handful of villagers and showing how miserable they are. What matters are development indexes and the changes in those indexes. Our leader has to talk about how he can make better changes in our current development indexes through concrete policies, not captious rhetoric and banal outbursts.

Reason #8: We do not want our Prime Minister or Chief Minister of the nation’s capital swearing on his children — like a husband does to his wife, when caught cheating on her — that too in public in a puerile manner, and soon after that going back on that very sworn statement.

Reason #9: We do not want an unscrupulous leader who doesn’t have any respect of law and breaks the law with knavish impunity, whether by exhorting people to not pay toll taxes or asking them to tear up their bills. I am still amazed about how there has been no action against him for the facetious drama he did on Delhi streets before the Republic Day. Would the Government have spared me for doing the same? Then why should be there different rules for him?

Reason #10: We do not want dubious mass surveys to be hawked as reasons for taking U-turns on anything and everything for convenience. It’s a cheap, laughable gimmick that whenever one wants to do something that people might question, I’ll peddle speciously fishy, closed-door results of a so-called mass survey to justify my actions.

Reason #11: We do not want the Government at the Centre to have the life of a poor quality local jhadoo, which is invariably less than two months.

Reason #12: And finally, we most certainly do not want our Prime Minister to sit on a dharna outside his own office or the Rashtrapati Bhavan, against his own Government, demanding the passing of certain Bills. We have seen this wacky joke playing out with Mr Kejriwal as Chief Minister. Still, one could take heart that mostly, only the nation was witness to it. Imagine the international community seeing such absurdly batty dramas unfolding at a national level. Spare us the opportunity.

I personally feel sad about what is happening with Subrata Roy. Is this the way to treat entrepreneurs of the country? No wonder every Indian business house is now investing abroad instead of in India. By basic logic, had it been true that Rs 20,000 crores and above worth money was cheated off the Indian public, then there would have been millions grouping up, staging protests, making FB groups, filing cases... One just needs to see what happened in the recent Sharda scam to understand. None of that has happened in this case. Subrata Roy says he has returned the money, there is no one coming and asking for it, he has already given 5000cr to SEBI which SEBI has not been able to distribute, no investor has complained to the court, then why is he in Jail? And why is the English media almost enjoying his situation?

How Arvind Kejriwal messed up a huge opportunity and lot of trust!

"Supporting Khap panchayats to random dharnas - how Arvind Kejriwal lost the support of civil society"

While Arvind Kejriwal’s stubborn defence of Somnath Bharti’s illegal and racist attempts at vigilante justice against African women and Kumar Vishwas’ racist comment on nurses of Kerala got written about, Arvind’s support for Khap panchayats (labelled as the Taliban of India by women’s right activists) got sidelined. Yes, people are writing about how in his politics, women’s issues have been sidelined. But it is his support for Khap’s dictats – which are shocking and shameful and range from banning women from wearing Western clothes and using mobile phones to ordering killing of young couples – that has hit women’s groups (especially those who want Khap panchayats dismantled) the most..........

Yet another reason to vote for BJP in the upcoming Elections!!
http://goo.gl/z4C5pd "BJP is full of talent! If Modi is the leader, Gadkari is the silent visionary, and there are still so many more!"

There is no doubt that BJP is the party to go for in the upcoming elections. No party has such a variety of support from intellectuals as the BJP has. No intellectual worth his mettle is supporting Congress, and barring a few slogan-mongers, no one is interested in AAP either. Definitely, not a single mainstream intellectual has any feelings for AAP. And truthfully, why not? While Congress has a few, very well spoken people (in English, I should add), BJP has the pick of the intellectuals, and to go with it, well spoken leaders too. Yes, many of them may be far better orators in Hindi, but that is the language that matters in this country!.........
