Satyendra Jain is Minister for health in Delhi Government.
Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal is batting everyday, persuading people to stay at home but his minister dashed to the Hospital immediately after he detected fever. Though, it must be said he rightly ignored the advice of the Chief Minister Kejriwal.
The condition of treatment of Corona patients in Delhi and hospitals in particular had become so pathetic that Supreme Court had asked it to explain and the court yesterday came down heavily on the government over filing the affidavit and trying to portray an image that everything is good in the state and said,
“The affidavit tries to give an impression to the court that everything in the government hospital in NCT, Delhi is well and all steps are being taken by the government of NCT of Delhi. When the government does not endeavour to know any shortcomings or lapses in its hospitals and patient care, the chances of remedial action and improvement becomes dim. Every organisation, every individual should be more than ready to know about shortcomings, lapses and it is only after knowing one’s shortcomings and deficiencies, remedial actions can be taken.”
Elections for Delhi Assembly are over and winner is ‘Arvind freebie Kejriwal’.
Starting from free water up to a certain limit every month, Arvind Kejriwal launch his election campaign immediately after the election results of 2019 parliamentary elections in which his party had slid to third position. First was free bus ride to all women and the next was free electricity up to 200 units for every household every month. Was it really so simple? I doubt it.
Common Man’s Party is hijacked!
Aam Aadmi or Common Man is not a new word in politics in India. Another synonym of common man is Janta which is the prefix or suffix of name of every second political party. But it was the branding of word ‘common man’ that attracted voters and its Govt swung into power in Delhi. But within a year the very word ‘Kejri’ has become a dirty word on the street, as I had summarised earlier in Kejri Effect. But that was about the outrageously false promises made by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP hereafter). It actually bribed the voters by promising a number of freebies to vote for it while its main plank was to make politics in India corruption free.
Failure of the century:
AAP is second biggest failure of this century but it can still redeem itself. It has four more years to remain in power in Delhi. If it works for the benefit of people it may redeem but if it will work for the ambition to come into power all over India, it won’t be able to do either.
AAP is second failure of century because the first was UPA-2 Govt i.e previous government of India which was voted to power in 2009. Remember how election result boosted the stock markets by several hundred points in a few minutes and circuit breakers closed the trade twice at every rise of 5%. It happened twice in same day. Serious reforms were promised by UPA-2. But that Congress led Government did not deliver and was severely punished in 2014.
Inner Party Democracy:
AAP had promised transparency and inner party democracy. Continue reading
Even Odd Logic of Arvind Kejriwal.
Arvind Kejriwal is now Chief Minister of Delhi but he likes to behave like an emperor. His announcement that from January Even Odd numbering vehicles shall be alternatively ply on Delhi Roads is a reflection of this dictatorial mindset. Merely because Chief Justice of India agreed to comply does not make the order legal. The fact is that this Even Odd logic is not only illogical but is legally and morally incorrect if not draconian.
Freedom of locomotion is a fundamental right. Continue reading
Arvind Kejriwal if a bamboozler.
Arvind Kejriwal as Chief Minister of Am Aadmi Party Government:
Aam Aadmi Party’s 49 days stint was smallest as any Government in Delhi. With Arvind Kejriwal as Chief Minister, this was most hyped Government. He had made every promise which could be made by an aspirant of office. Once he came into power he gave few superfluous freebies to poor people, arbitrarily helped his campaigners and jettisoned the governance on an invented and baseless reason.
It would not be long before majority of people will form an opinion about Arvind and AAP. But here are some events which elucidate the facts for decision making:
