460 Kejriwal's audio tape whether genuine or fake need not be given great significance

460 श्री अरविंंद केज्रीवाल के आडियो टेप ६६ ऎम ऎल ऎस के साथ  मै नये पार्टी बनावूँगा, असली या नकली हम प्राधान्यता देने के जरूरत नहीं है ।
460 మేము ౬౬ మంది ఎమ్. ఎల్. ఎ. ల తోబయటకు వెళ్ళి కొత్త పార్టీ పెట్తాము అంటూ శ్రీ అరవింద్ కెజ్రీవాల్ గారి పేరుపై సర్క్యులేషన్ లో ఉన్న ఆడియో టేప్ అది అసలుదైనా, నకిలీదైనా, మనం అంత ప్రాధాన్యతను ఇవ్వ నవసరం లేదు.

Mr. Kejriwal was reported to have said in a recorded audio tape in circulation:

‘... If required then i will quit this party and make a new one ...’

Some allegative disclosures reported to have been made by Shri  Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan are here:-.
Professional bouncers were deployed at the National Council Meet, instead of regular AAP volunteers.

Arvind Kejriwal incited party volunteers to push and shove senior leaders at the venue.  - Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan.

Some of National Council members, who dared to support us, got injured as a result of the violence.

Professionals bouncers were brought in the meeting. They dragged a NC member and manhandled him in which he got injured.

In his one hour speech, all that Kejriwal did was denounce Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan.

Arvind Kejriwal said ‘I cannot work with these two. If they stay in the party, I will exit.

After his provocative speech, Arvind Kejriwal left citing an urgent meeting saying that Gopal Gandhi will chair the meeting.

The entire meeting proceeded in an extremely orchestrated manner. Democracy was murdered in National Council meeting.

There was no agenda for the meeting, Manish Sisodia simply took over the proceedings and carried out bogus voting in meeting.

Goons were arranged to shout slogans like ‘Yogendra Yadav murdabad’ at the venue of meeting.

ybrao-a-donkey's views.  वैबीराव गधे के राय వైబీరావ్ గాడిద అభిప్రాయం

These things take place in every party in India and abroad.  ऐसे चीज हर पार्टी में होते जाते हैं ।  ఇలాంటివి ప్రతి రాజకీయ పార్టీలో జరుగుతూ ఉంటాయి.

Main reason is, the top person wants to retain complete control of the Party, either directly or,  indirectly through a proxy like Ameet Shaw.   While those who are senior, or nearly equal to the top person try to ascertain their importance by demanding democracy.  Soon after Indian Independence, our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had this type of disconsonance with Purushottamdas Tandon, Acharya Kriplani, Chakravartula Rajagopalachari et al.  Finally, unhappy Seniors had to quit.  Else, they would have been necked out by cronies.

The same was the case when Ms. Indira Gandhi was the P.M.  In the squirmishes between Seniors and the Indira Group, Congress got split in 1969.

In the 1977 Janata experiment, there was a similar problem.  After squirmishes among Morarjee Desai, Devi Lal, Jagjivan Ram, Charan Singh, there was an election, and Ms. Indira Gandhi and Nehru dynasty was restored.

In the 1989 V.P. Singh's Janata Dal's experiment also, there were similar problems.

After becoming Delhi's Chief Minister, Mr. Kejriwal ought to have voluntarily resigned from the National Convenor's Post, suggesting a secret ballot election with a large electorate.  At least he should have kept his proxy on the Delhi throne and gone back to All India arena, to make AAP an All India party.  This he has not done, because he wanted to eat the cake and also retain it. 

Mr. Yogendra Yadav and Mr. Prashant Bhushan seem to be more intent on expanding the spread of AAP to be an All India Party.

Most of the political parties' election meetings be it they for electing Party President, Prime Ministers, Chief Ministers all tend to be fake.  Nobody dares to oppose the top bosses openly, as that will lead to their being necked out.  All the elections take place unanimously.

In the absence of internal democracy, dissatisfied members will start whispering campaigns, and try to mobile secret support.   But, while they try to mobilise support, somebody who is approached will carry the message to the boss, to gain his-her grace.  Then the boss will see that conspiracies and coups are nipped in the bud.

If a secret ballot is held for electing a Congress President, probably Mr. Rahul Gandhi may not get elected.

The problem of top boss trying to act as dictator surfaced even in Lok Satta Party (LSP) of Andhra Pradesh.  Finally LSP split.

It is a real trickish problem to strike a balance between founders of a party retaining control on the party, and the demands for change from the grass roots which may contain new entrants.

We can see two situtions:

1. Dissensions among founder members.
2. Dissensions between founder members and new entrants, where founders find that they are losing their grip.

At this critical juncture, ability of leaders who can mobilise Corporate donations whether white or black, will have a key role.   Successful parties need three components:

1.  Charismatic leaders.
2.  Fund mobilisers.
3.  Hero worship tendencies in public.

In the process, original key elements needed for a true political party are cold-shouldered.

1. Goals and rules of the party which cannot be compromised under any circumstances.
2. Goals and rules of the party which can, to some extent be, made flexible and changes can be accommodated depending upon changes in environment.
3. Primary goals for which party was founded.

The problem with AAP is, it has become a party which thrives on the discontent of the people with Congress, B.J.P., and the Regional satraps.

Like the Congress, B.J.P., Regional satraps, it also does not have any clear economic philosophies.  Like these parties, AAP too wants to survive offering reduced tariffs and freebees.

In the absence of leaders who are committed to clear goals, principles and rules, every party will be filled with power-mongers, once signals of a party getting to power appear.

 SOLUTION इस समस्या के समाधान ఈ సమస్యకి పరిష్కారం

Essential to mobilise grass root members, workers, leaders at ever level who are very particular about goals, principles, procedures, rules, transparency.

BJP had ostensible periodic changes of Presidents, probably to prevent dynastic successions.

While periodical change of top bosses is one solution, the basic problem of psychophants and the top bosses encouraging one another continues in all the parties.  Elections with secret ballot, without need of nominations (every eligible member satisfying the criteria can be treated as a candidate without a need to file nomination.  In these days of computerised records of memberships and mobille, web based voting techniques, this process will not be difficult to implement.

Where there is a will, there will be a way.   Where there is no will, everything appears to be an insurmountable problem.

(To continue.  सशेष.  సశేషం.)
