AAP and Goa

The Aap performance in the recently concluded Delhi election was nothing short of historic, magical and reiterated our faith in the beauty and purity of indian democracy.

IN the national context, AAP IS AN IDEA HERE TO COMPLETELY STAY.. Post 2014 if the congress and the khichdi third front come to power it will be the same old power brokers, wheeler dealers, and corrupt crony capitalists back in action..

With the BJP now in retreat after having played their last trump card (Modi) the only credible opposition to this formation will be AAP and like minded parties.

If the BJP kicks in into power, and Modi is at the helm.there may be a dip in the present ghastly corruption levels and the development agenda may get a major boost. but everyone and more so in the  BJP agree that dictatorship will hold sway in the country.

In that case who better than AAP to bat for democracy.

Whichever way you look at it AAP and its ideology is here to stay.

IN Goa of course the AAP ideology of democracy, accountability, transparency, probity, and pluralism is alive and kicking IN ITS PEOPLE even if not in its political class for decades now.

If AAP can now forcefully and convincingly articulate an economic agenda that is aspirational and capitalist but with strict regulations and also define the precise and exact role of the Gram Sabhas and Mohalla Sabhas without allowing them to descend into chaos and bedlam then surely a radiant and triumphant dawn is just awaiting us over the horizon.

The Aam Aadmi Party is required in Goa. Those who are looking for an alternative to the Congress and BJP will support the party.

Our regional parties join any party that comes to power. Nothing special in them. They are only for 'Kissa kursi ka'.

AAP can do really well in Goa.
