Contrary to what was publicly declared, I suspect Arvind Kejriwal’s major in graduation must have been ‘spying’. Of course, it is in the public record (and unfortunately to him, in memory also) that he asked citizens of Delhi to use ‘sting operation’ as a tool to get their work done. It is another matter that after stung by these stings, he had to ban cell phones in party meetings. Despite his precautions, a series of stings happened involving his party men including those in higher posts, enriching the private ‘porn collections’ of some romantic (?) citizens.
If news reports are believed Arvind Kejriwal has taken the ‘sting’ to a new high. About 30 office bearers and 400 workers of AAP have quit the party few days ago, accusing Arvind Kejriwal of ‘spying’ on them. Apparently Kejriwal hired a private detective agency. And this group of ‘deserters’ is led by Himanshu Pathak, former in-charge of IT cell, Punjab. For the starters, when AAP targeted to highlight the drug menace in Punjab, it was the same Himanshu Pathak who was given the task. Apparently he had done a good job, as AAP was expected to win in about One hundred assembly seats in the coming elections, according to Kejriwal.
Perhaps Kejriwal wanted to know the secrets of Himanshu and his team’s success to replicate it in other states. Selfish Himanshu could not understand the ‘intention’ of his supreme commander and rebelled. After all, imitation is the best form of flattery!
Himanshu could not understand the grand schemes of Kejriwal. He blamed Kejriwal violated the constitution of the party and has not conducted elections every three years, as was stipulated by the holy book. Come on Himanshu, Kejriwal even violates constitution of India and even the Election Commission, which is feared by Congress, BJP and Communists could not hold Arvind Kejriwal back from using ‘accept money from other parties’ remark repetitively. In fact it was this ‘anarchist’ image that was appealed to many of his supporters. Only person who comes to a distant second to Arvind Kejriwal is ‘Vijaykant’ in Tamilnadu, who feels he could handle all the ‘anti-people’ forces single handed, like in his films. But, the difference is Vijaykant is addicted to the much powerful and raw version of Glycodene that Arvind administers himself.
The accusations of Himanshu Pathak on Arvind Kejriwal prove nothing new. Even I doubt that Arvind Kejriwal ‘hired’ a detective agency. In all probability, the agency might be a group of NRIs ‘volunteered’ to spy on behalf of the Supreme Commander.
That Kejriwal moulded AAP on the lines of Congress is now a well-established fact. So, naturally the division of power and responsibilities shall reflect the well-established corporate norms. Power lies with one group, while another one is allocated responsibilities. If one’s job is to handle responsibilities, he shall never cry about others enjoying the power that was result of his actions. After all, this is the land of Krishna and Buddha. One shall do his Karma and forget its fruits so as to achieve Nirvana. Seems Himanshu Pathak has slept through the class when the Zen master Kejriwal explained this.
What makes Kejriwal to spy on his own party men?
If one googles “spying on own citizens”, the top result is from pri.org that informs about twelve countries that spy on their own citizens i.e., apart from the much maligned America. These countries are Germany, France, China, Russia, Zimbabwe, Syria, Iran, New Zealand, Bahrain, Canada, Vietnam and United Kingdom.
German head is furious at Americans for spying on her, nevertheless she used to spook on her own citizens. The French spies only for records. These records include even the denial of spying. China is perhaps the closest role model for AAP. Chinese officials not only spy on people, but also on each other. Russian officials are so busy they even try to listen what sportsmen talk in Olympics village. Zimbabwe’s mode of spying is associated with the ‘Art of winning elections continuously’ propagated by Robert Mugabe, who influences Arvind Kejriwal deeply for his vision. Both snooping agencies of Syria were founded by its President (I really would’ve liked had he call himself a King) Assad. The advantage is he can even engage these two agencies against one another! Iran’s spies actually maintain database records of public for the government.
If Arvind had not heard of spies of New Zealand it is time to send a delegation there. Considering the fact that they spy their people anyway, spying by government is made legal; well, almost! Inspiring. Isn’t it. I could visualise Kejriwal sending Sisu on a tour to down under. After adopting the scheme, no doubt Arvind Kejriwal would improve a shade on the original one.
Bahrain has already gone digital. They use a ‘spyware’ to monitor opposition. Considering his NRI fans base, I think Arvind got this software and used it on trial basis to snoop on party men. The good Canada too snoops on its people. Maybe some Canadian NRI volunteer started ‘Am6’ services in Punjab. Vietnam’s model of prohibiting people voicing their opinions against the government would never be used by Arvind, for he never forgets his roots. The UK model of spying even shares information on its own citizens with United States. What stops Arvind from sharing some delicate and private information to any other party into which his cadre defects? Now I understand why Kumar Biswas condemned his joining BJP so vociferously. Had he joined BJP, AK49 would have released ‘Kumara Sangamam’ that may increase Kumar Biswas popularity more than that of CD Singhvi.
The fact that AAP office bearers and workers left the party two days ago, but the news is not fully covered by national media explains one thing. Even the main stream media doesn’t take AAP seriously.
400 AAP workers resigning and no headlines? Or Kejriwal snooped on MSM too and blackmailed them from covering this news prime time? Maybe. Who knows?
As the man who handled the IT cell earlier, Himanshu Pathak should know that any spook caught in the act is ‘beyond salvage’. Kejriwal doesn’t give a damn about anything or anyone. He is a man on a mission. And he is yet to figure out what that mission is. All he knew for the time being is how the ex-KGB Putin is admired for his strong presidency.
As far as his party and its workers are concerned Punjab knows well that in a democracy one can elect Trump and then protest against the election! When it was monarchy, it was ‘yatha raja, tatha praja’. In a democracy – it is ‘yatha praja, tatha raja’. For the people of Goa and Punjab it is time to get themselves entertained by the theatrics of Arvind. I am waiting to hear the words: I’m Wal, Kejriwal.
