Given the ugly state of affairs in Delhi, it won’t be a bad idea to terminate the AAP government and impose President’s rule in Delhi.

Delhi’s ruling political outfit Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which is already in troubled waters because of rising corruption and sluggish governance in the state, is facing yet another blow, as the Delhi police have decided to tighten the noose on the AAP leaders with criminal records.
Reports suggest that Delhi police are all set to file charge sheet against 21 AAP legislators including Delhi Chief Minister (CM) Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia.
Jitender Singh Tomar, who was the law minister in Kejriwal government, has already been arrested by the police in a criminal case of cheating and forgery, as he submitted a fake degree about his educational qualification.
The charges against AAP leaders include criminal intimidation, rioting, assault, use of criminal force, cheating, forgery, counterfeiting of currency, causing death by negligence, and other serious allegations.
Earlier, a leading think tank Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) supported by a political watchdog Delhi Election Watch had said that 23 (33%) of 70 AAP candidates in the Delhi election had declared criminal cases against themselves in their affidavits.
Although AAP says that the Narendra Modi-led BJP government in India is creating troubles for it to revenge BJP’s defeat in Delhi election, the Kejriwal party has not yet refuted the charges against AAP leaders.
Meanwhile, a former AAP MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) Rajesh Garg reveals that over 12 AAP MLAs have fake degrees. Earlier, Garg had released an audiotape that revealed Kejriwal’s desperation to form the AAP government in Delhi by using corrupt methods.
It’s not only about the failure of AAP leaders who have fake degrees, but those AAP ministers who have proper degrees are totally incompetent to manage the administration in the state. The AAP CM Kejriwal and his group of ministers are naïve and trying to learn about governance at the expense of local citizens’ interests.
In the past four months of its rule, AAP has done a serious damage to Delhi and the entire state has come to a grinding halt (read “Related Articles” stated above).
Given the ugly state of affairs in Delhi, it won’t be a bad idea to terminate the AAP government and impose President’s rule in Delhi. That will be good for Delhiites. Believe me.
