While an ugly impasse has been persisting in Delhi, there is a need to immediately dissolve the Delhi Assembly and remove inefficient LG Baijal from his position.

The Delhi unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today held a demonstration in front of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence.
According to BJP, the demonstration aims to highlight the failures of Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government during its more than 3 years of rule in Delhi.
It is largely believed that Kejriwal and his ministers could not perform in Delhi because he and his ministers as well party colleagues are mostly uneducated, inexperienced, or goons who do not understand the ABC’s of governance.
Since Kejriwal’s AAP government has failed on all fronts, Kejriwal is blaming Lt. Governor (LG) Anil Baijal and PM Narendra Modi for his own failures. In the process, he is trying to hoodwink the voters by saying that Baijal is not allowing him to work.
However, most people believe that in just 3 years, Kejriwal and AAP have caused such a damage to Delhi that now it will take it almost 30 years to recover from the ruins.
Similarly, the education standards – particularly in Delhi schools – are going from bad to worse while Kejriwal has no interest in improving the quality of education. Rather, Kejriwal and his party colleagues are making false claims about Delhi school education.
While Kejriwal is going gaga over the hyped performance of his Mohalla Clinics, people in Delhi complain about the futility of such a flawed health care concept.
People told RMN News Service that mostly these so-called community health care centres are locked and when they open they fail to provide proper medical treatment.
During the past couple of years, Kejriwal and his party have only been blaming the LG for their own failures. No doubt, LG Baijal is a highly inefficient bureaucrat who mostly wastes his time in useless closed-door meetings or avoidable inauguration ceremonies of shops and roads. But Kejriwal and his ministers are equally incompetent.
Now Kejriwal is playing mob politics to intimidate LG Baijal so the latter could accept all his irrational demands. Kejriwal – who sat on a dharna in LG office for over a week – instigated a group of hirelings to shout slogans against LG Baijal.
Kejriwal’s illegitimate demands include the end of bureaucrats’ strike who are not cooperating with Kejriwal government because Kejriwal’s goons had allegedly assaulted Delhi chief secretary.
During his dharna, Kejriwal had cleverly roped in a few other anti-Modi politicians like Mamata Banerjee, N Chandrababu Naidu, Pinarayi Vijayan, Sitaram Yechury to support him in the chaos that he has created in Delhi.
While Kejriwal thinks they are supporting him, actually they are working on the saying “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Kejriwal has given them an opportunity to blame Modi for Delhi crisis. Kejriwal has failed to realize that with all his theatrics, the people of Delhi are more confused that enthused.
The sorry plight of people in Delhi indicates that India has already become a politically unstable banana republic with rampant lawlessness, corruption, and exploitation of the ordinary citizens. It is expected that soon India will formally appear in the list of banana republics such as Botswana, Guatemala, Nigeria, Zambia, and Cuba.

If the situation is not controlled immediately, it is expected that international sanctions will be imposed on India because of government’s failure to stop increasing lawlessness, crime, and corruption.
While an ugly impasse has been persisting in Delhi, there is a need to immediately dissolve the Delhi Assembly and remove inefficient LG Baijal from his position. ‘No government’ than ‘bad government’ will be a good option for the people of Delhi.
