Even if Congress thinks it cannot win even a single seat in Delhi, it should not have any kind of partnership with AAP led by a dishonest and incompetent politician like Kejriwal.

Although Congress is unnecessarily delaying its decision about an alliance with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for Delhi Lok Sabha election, it should stay away from Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP which is one of the most corrupt political outfits in India.

The President of the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee, Sheila Dikshit, has been unofficially ruling out the possibility of a tie-up with AAP, but the final decision has not yet been made. She also has expressed the hope to win all 7 Lok Sabha seats in Delhi.

But even if Congress thinks it cannot win even a single seat in Delhi, it should not have any kind of partnership with AAP led by a dishonest and incompetent politician like Kejriwal.

In fact, Delhi has become a virtual hell under Kejriwal’s rule. Most people believe that in 4 years, Kejriwal and AAP have caused such a damage to Delhi that now it will take it almost 40 years to recover from the ruins.

Today, Delhi is among the most polluted and the dirtiest cities of the world and corruption is rampant in every street of Delhi while Kejriwal government never tried to control it.

While there are multiple complaints of corruption against AAP legislators, recently the party decided to defy the notice from Delhi’s anti-corruption body Lokayukta which has asked AAP MLAs to reveal the details of their assets.

As bureaucratic and political corruption is rampant in Delhi, new reports suggest that the office of Delhi’s Lokayukta has received 41 complaints of corruption against the AAP legislators. The complaints are against the AAP MLAs as well as ministers.

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.

Kejriwal and his liar friends hoodwink the people by equating quality of school education with the school buildings. Kejriwal and his colleagues claim that they have improved the education standards by constructing cement buildings and classrooms.

While the quality of education is pathetic in schools, Kejriwal deceives the people of Delhi by saying that it is improving the education system in the city by constructing thousands of classrooms.

Moreover, Kejriwal is going gaga over the hyped performance of his Mohalla Clinics. But most people in Delhi complain about the futility of such a flawed health care concept.

As Delhi has clearly become a virtual hell under Kejriwal’s AAP government, if Congress decides to hold Kejriwal’s hand in any election, it will attempt a suicide by jumping into that hell. The alliance with a corrupt party like AAP will also jeopardize the Congress chances of winning the upcoming Assembly election in Delhi.

The Lok Sabha election in Delhi will take place in the sixth phase on May 12.
