While corruption has become the lifeblood of Indian bureaucrats and politicians, Swaraj India party believes that the nation seeks a truthful fight against black money and corruption.

Here’s a rule of thumb: If you want to fool the Indian voters and succeed in the political battlefield, shout as much as you can about corruption and black money.

Almost all corrupt Indian politicians thrive on anti-corruption rhetoric while corruption has become part of the atmospheric air in India.

Take Arvind Kejriwal, for example. He cunningly leveraged social activist Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption campaign of 2011-12 to become a visible politician and then the chief minister of Delhi.

Although Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is not willing to check corruption, his shallow slogans against this evil helped him hoodwink the Delhi voters and win local election.

But now people of Delhi feel that they were cheated. In an ongoing RMN Poll given below, a whopping 78% people say they are not satisfied with Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi.

Plus, in the RMN Popularity Poll, Kejriwal’s own popularity is severely damaged. With only 7% votes Kejriwal stands at No. 9 in a list of 10 candidates. You can vote and check out the poll results so far.

Swaraj Abhiyan

Now AAP rebels – Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav who were thrown out of the party by Kejriwal – have decided to promote their new political outfit Swaraj India with a hype around corruption and black money. Obviously.

According to Swaraj India, its leader Prashant Bhushan will hold a rally about black money on Sunday, December 18, at Jantar Mantar which is a protest location in Delhi. Bhushan is the national president of Swaraj Abhiyan, the parent organization of Swaraj India party.

The focus of the protest is going to be on the perils of demonetization scheme announced last month by India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the role of opposition parties in the related melee.

While corruption has become the lifeblood of Indian bureaucrats and politicians, Swaraj India party believes that the nation seeks a truthful fight against black money and corruption.
