Aam Aadmi Party, ex Bureaucrats and Politics
Yesterday night, I was shocked to watch and hear Arvind Kejriwal’s comments
in the TV show Aap Ki Adalat.
Earlier, I have been astonished to hear comments by General V K Singh about
the Supreme Court decision on his age dispute.
And I have been amused to see Asaram Bapu’s supporters ranting to the
Right to contest elections and dream big
Every one, including ex Bureaucrats, and even Babas have a right to contest
the elections, and dream of becoming the Prime Minister, Chief Minister,
Minister, MP or MLA. But people who have retired as a General or Cabinet
Secretary or some other high position have handled very sensitive files and
documents. They should never talk about such things in public in private.
General V K Singh
How can he compare his age dispute with that of a 17 year old rapist?
The Supreme Court does not admit cases of age disputes of government
The affected person has to come through a serious of judicial hierarchy.
The Supreme Court did a favour in hearing the General directly. Probably this
should not have been done.
Then, there are procedures and a plethora of decisions on how age disputes of
Government employees should be agitated and resolved.
Commenting on the Supreme Court was in very bad taste.
Then he stated that he had evidence against a subordinate offering him bribe.
But he could never produce the evidence.
Then his statement in public about the bribes and payments made to
politicians in Kashmir are actually crimes punishable under the Military Act
and the Official Secrets Act.
Surely he knows all this….
Asharam and his son Narayan Sai
Asaram Bapu is in jail. His son Narayan Sai announced he will form an all India
political party. His supporters harp on the delay in filing the various
There are so many charges against both father and son. There are a plethora of
If he is innocent, he should appear before the police and the and the courts
and answer the different questions.
Why is he running away?
In the interview yesterday, Arvind said that he was a Commissioner of Income
Tax when he resigned, and that every Inspector in the Income Tax
Department earns at least Rs. 1 crore per year……He left the department and
all this money for the common man.
The fact is he was not a Commissioner – but only an Addl. Commissioner of
Income Tax when he resigned. All this ranting about the earning of an
Inspector of Income Tax of Rs. 1 crore is sheer bakwas. How many cases of
Inspectors amassing this kind of money did he come across? How many
inspectors did he take action against during his long career.
Then he did not mention that his wife continues to work in the same Income
Tax Department as Additional Commissioner of Income Tax. Personally, I do
not know them. But by the same logic, she must be earning tens of crores of
rupees every year. What is his answer to this logic?
Anna Hazare thought politics is dirty and chose to remain aloof. But Arvind
has entered Politics and he is already talking like a Chief Minister…….May be
one day his dreams will come true.
But as I said, he has a right to contest elections and dream big,,,,but without
telling silly lies about his ex colleagues and sub ordinates.
