Exclamation Kejriwal resigns over Janlokpal bill; sets stage for national role

Kejriwal resigns over Janlokpal bill; sets stage for national role

This was expected ... Everyone gets his 15 minutes of fame ...

Quote:
New Delhi, Feb 14 (IANS) Forty-nine days after he took charge of the Delhi government, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Friday resigned following a tumultuous day in the state assembly where combined Congress and BJP legislators "defeated" his party's attempts to introduce its signal Jan Lokpal bill, which the Aam Admi Pary (AAP) says was meant to curb corruption in high places.

In political embarrassment for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government, Kejriwal introduced the bill amid din in the assembly, but an aggressive Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders became strange bedfellows to force Speaker M.S. Dhir to go for voting.

In the voting, 42 members voted against the introduction of the bill, while only 27 MLAs - all AAP leaders - voted for it. Delhi assembly has a total strength of 70.

As it became apparent that the Congress, BJP and Janata Dal-United legislator Shoiab Iqbal and lone independent Rambeer Shokeen will not allow the AAP government to introduce the bill, Kejriwal and his senior cabinet colleague Manish Sisodia presented two appropriation bills that would empower the government to access funds for expenditure.

Kejriwal then stood up to speak, giving enough indication he was going to resign when he said that this "seems like our last (assembly) session". He said it was more important to "fight corruption than to run a government".

"Today, they did not let the Jan Lokpal bill to be introduced. It has been defeated," declared a defiant and gesticulating Kejriwal.
"Whether our government remains in power or not is not important," he said, trying to make himself heard above the din caused by sloganeering and heckling by Congress and BJP legislators.
"We have come here to save the country. If we have to give up the chief minister's post for the sake of the country, we will do it not a hundred times but a thousand times," he said.

Kejriwal took charge Dec 28 at the head of a minority government propped up by the Congress after an astonishing election victory.
Both the BJP, Congress, Shokeen and Iqbal were demanding a discussion on Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung's appeal to the government not to table the bill in the house without his approval.

Jung had earlier in the day written to the speaker on the matter, which had become contentious over the past week with the lieutenant-governor saying that the union government's nod is needed for introducing the bill - an issue on which opinion is divided among legal and constitutional experts.
But the AAP government was firm and had decided to push for the bill, which was its poll promise.

But much before the house could be adjourned, messages went out to AAP members to meet at its party headquarters at Hanuman Road.
When the three-day session ended in just two days, Kejriwal, without interacting with media, left for the party office. It was here that he announced his resignation. The final decision was taken by the party's Political Affairs Committee.

On Feb 9, Kejriwal had threatened to resign if the bill was not allowed to be passed.

It was an action-packed 49-day stint for the AAP government, which received both bouquets and brickbats for its actions and utterances in its brief and maiden stint in power in a politically-charged journey that began with the party's formation on November 2012.

The party was able to deliver some of its biggest poll promises, including cheap water, power, anti-corruption helpline, audit of power companies and acting on suspected corruption in the organisation of Commonwealth Games and in gas pricing in which he took on from former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit to industrial Mukesh Ambani, chairman of Reliance Industries and India's richest man.

But the indiscretions of one of his ministers, especially Law Minister Somnath Bharti who went after African residents on suspicion of them being part of a drug-and-sex racket, and his nightlong blockade of the centre of the capital, days before the Republic Day Parade, got the party a lot of flak and adverse media attention.

His resignation now sets him free to get back to the streets and do what he knows best - to emote with the problems of the aad admi, the common man, whose ranks have swelled in support for his party and on whom he is counting to translate his national ambitions.
Political analysts expect Kejriwal and his AAP to make a strong bid for a substantial parliamentary presence in order to be player in the post-election scenario in three months' time.

Re: Kejriwal resigns over Janlokpal bill; sets stage for national role

Good or bad, Kejriwal is gutsy and can do the unexpected again & again!

I guess he deserves a full-term as CM but without playing a spolisport to Modi's chances of becoming PM.

He was probably upset over not being in the top headline for first time in 2014 when the Pepper Spray MP edged him out.

Re: Kejriwal resigns over Janlokpal bill; sets stage for national role

If you take oath for allegiance to Constitution of India, you have to work within the framework.

His resignation is just a drama as his Money Bill (for govt to run) was already defeated with 42 votes against him. So govt is already defeated, resignation is just a formality from there on.

I have only 2 words to say.. GOOD RIDDANCE

Re: Kejriwal resigns over Janlokpal bill; sets stage for national role

Kejriwal said his government brought down power rates and gave free water and drastically reduced corruption.

See it is easy.. just in 49 days this great man took care of all the problem that plaqued Delhi. In Delhi you cannot bribe any govt officials. It is a thing of past. Also Mr. Kejriwal was humble not to mention that his esteemed minister got rid of the oldest prefession in the world, prostitution and drug use in Delhi.

I humbly request Mr. Modi to sit out this election and give Mr. Kejriwal a chance to become the PM for 50 Days(need one extra day.. you see it a nation nor just one state) so that he can drastically reduce corruption in India and also bring down power rate and give out free water..

.... His ministers will get rid of prostitution and drug use.

Support Mr. Kejriwal to become PM.....
not for better India for next generation..
but for better India in 50 Days...


Vote for AAP...... Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......Vote for AAP......

If that is what they deserve so be it. Finally public get what they vote for.

But I feel a quitter is never appreciated by anybody.. if he fought for Lokpal bill more, he would have gained but this definitely a loss.

Somehow, I doubt that. It's not called the world's oldest profession without reason.

I used to be a big fan of AAP. They have a lot of bright, well-meaning people. They talked the talk. But they've really disappointed.

Dude all this is not going to stick since his govt is not in power..

What do you say about -

- It is AAP who set up deadlines saying we will do this in 30 days and this in 1 week, etc etc.. its like a software engineer giving estimate himself of 1 week and then not meeting deadlines, blaming the requirements, environment, etc etc

- Somnath Bharti tampering with proof? Courts have named him, Bar council are suspending him.

- Somnath Bharti's illegal/immoral businesses.. sending viagra emails, registering pondy sites

- Kejriwal (as a CM) sitting on dharna and achieving a paid holiday for 3 lucky policemen

- Kejriwal giving subsidy even before audits are completed .. giving away subsidies from public money.. how did he balance the books?

- Sisodia using NGO money for personal expenses, Kejriwal never quitting IT Dept job (going on a leave and never returning, no resignation, he and wife never transferred out of NCR in like 15 years)

I think they are all opportunistic people wanting to enter politics and enjoying LS benefits, position perks .. the very system they are so eager to denounce and call it a failed system.
