From ‘Modi doesn’t let us’ to ‘have faith in Centre’, U-turn Kejriwal is suddenly on reverse gear

AAP draws lessons from Congress' monumental failure in 2019 elections, goes from 'Modi doesn't let us' to 'have faith in Centre'

If there is someone who has learnt from Congress’ disastrous performance in the recently concluded 2019 general elections, it is Aam Aadmi Party. With state assembly elections just few months away, AAP has changed its tune and how!

First came Arvind Kejriwal’s support to abrogation of Article 370. The entire opposition, especially the left has been up in arms on Government’s decision to make Jammu & Kashmir an integral part of India without any riders. However, Arvind Kejriwal, supported the government’s decision.

This came as a huge surprise since following the abrogation of Article 370, the erstwhile state of Jammu & Kashmir was bifurcated into two union territories of Ladakh and Jammu & Kashmir, with J&K to have its own assembly, much like Delhi, but Centre still has a say in it, much like Delhi. Kejriwal also got a lot of flak for his support to government’s decision.

Then, last week when former Finance Minister P Chidambaram was arrested by the CBI and ED for his alleged involvement in INX Media Scam, Kejriwal has not uttered a word against the investigative agencies. He, unlike his peers in the opposition, has not termed the move a political vendetta. He has maintained silence. Prior to the elections, the CBI had raided Samajwadi Party leaders and various bureaucrats while investigating the illegal sand mining case. Kejriwal had then called it ‘shameless’.

Not a word on Chidambaram arrests from Kejriwal, yet.

And as if all that was not enough, in a shocking move, Kejriwal even extended support to the Centre and said that he has ‘absolute faith’ that the central government will take strict measures to revive the economy.

He even said that his Delhi government will even cooperate to overcome it. Well, elections are round the corner and if there is one learning from Congress’ performance it was perhaps that negative campaigning against PM Modi ends up working in his favour and leads to a humiliating defeat. AAP has only one MP in the Lok Sabha and it is quite unlikely that he AAP will get 66 out of 70 seats in Delhi assembly in the upcoming elections.

In the past, the Delhi Chief Minister has picked a bone quite a few times with the Delhi Lieutenant Governor. So, perhaps to save some seats and in a bid to perhaps crawl through the majority mark, Kejriwal seems to have cut down on the rhetorics and anti-Modi tirade. No wonder he has gone from ‘Modi doesn’t let us‘ to ‘we have faith in Modi’.
