A day after the Assembly poll results, Delhi is witnessing a political deadlock with a question mark over who will form the government in India's only city state.
With a victory in 32 seats, the BJP fell four short of majority. The debutant Aam Aadmi which has put forth a spectacular show, too fell short of the half-way mark with 28 seats in the 70-member Delhi Assembly
AAP has stated that the party will sit in the opposition and vowed to be constructive in its role.
As none of the two parties have the numbers, the options available are that the BJP can form a minority government and seek a trust vote in the Assembly.
However unlikely it may be, the AAP has the option of tying up with the Congress to form the government.
There is also an option of defection available which does not seem viable as two-third of a legislature party needs to break away for the same. With half of the 8 Congress MLAs from the minority community, the possibility of adopting that option appears bleak.
If no party goes ahead to claim a majority the national capital will be left with the only option of having a President's Rule. Fresh elections can be held if there is no positive movement towards government formation.
The question that arises here is why is anyone not thinking about public?. Crores of rupees are spent on elections, they are not conducted for free and that money too comes from the pockets of general public; in that case if elections are held again, ultimately public has to bear that burden. If a political party is saying that we think in the interest of public and we want to work for public then why is BJP and AAP taking it is a matter of self-esteem and pride.
AAP does not want to come foreword because if they do so, public will cruse them by saying what is the difference between AAP and other parties if they collaborate with them.
In the same way BJP thinks that why would they take help from AAP which is only a one year old party.
The issue is, nobody is thinking about public. If they really in the well being of public, they must also think that public can not afford a second election in a matter of 3 months. They should keep aside their egos and come forward to form a healthy government and show people what is good politics.
My view is like this- No body is interested in thinking about common man. Whether it is BJP, congress or AAP, everybody is playing dirty politics to overpower each other by pointing out each other's faults.
Arvind kejriwal prepared a political ground for him by joining Anna's movement back in 2012 otherwise who the hell knew who is Arvind?. This was all done to come in limelight and take advantage of Anna.
When will a day come when some one genuinely think about public?
