Karnataka AAP writes to CM Siddaramaiah on inducting tainted leaders

Bangalore, Jan 02: The thumping win in the Delhi Assembly has strengthened AAP even more. It has already started working on its 17 agendas and this was evident in Karnataka where the party has its new-found stronghold. In the wake of inducting of 'tainted' leaders, the Siddaramaiah government received a letter from the party's local branch, expressing their concern over his move of indicting corrupt politicians in the Cabinet.

The letter goes this way:


Shri Siddaramaiah,

Hon'ble Chief Minister,

Govt of Karnataka,


Subject : Regarding your decision to induct tainted ministers

Dear Siddaramaiah Ji,

It has been less than a year since you assumed the office of CM of Karnataka.

One of the first acts in discharging your duties towards the citizens of Karnataka was promising them a clean government. When you resisted all pressure to induct tainted MLAs as ministers in your cabinet, Kannadigas blessed your efforts and hoped that you will be a candle in the darkness of a corrupt system.

Your recent decision of expanding your cabinet by inducting two tainted MLAs facing charges of Land grabbing, illegal mining etc. goes against everything that we believe you stood for. If you have surrendered in this battle against crime and corruption in less than a year, we wonder what other grounds will you cede over the next 4 years?

Aam Aadmi Party strongly believes that replacing individuals does not change politics, what is required is systemic change to the way politics is practiced. Your actions have proved yet again the need for systemic overhaul.

We understand your recent statements questioning the morality of those opposing your move as an admission that your decision was morally incorrect. It is difficult for a person surrounded by lackeys of weak moral fiber to find wise counsel. Over the next few weeks, we will request ordinary Kannadiga's who are known for their strong moral fiber to write to you, counsel you and remind you of your promise to the state.
