On Friday when all the elected legislators of Delhi Assembly met for the last time, an interesting thing came to the light. A Times of India report says that many of the AAP MLAs who bragged a lot about the simplicity philosophy in the past, came in SUVs. Even party chief Kejriwal himself came in Toyota Innova who during his stint of Chief Ministership was adamant in traveling in his blue WagonR against the advice of the police.
His other cabinet colleagues like Rakhi Birla and Manish Sisodia also rode new wheels. Birla, who was the Women and Child Development Minister in AAP Government and even in shivering cold commuted in Delhi Metro came in Innova, while Education Minister Sisodia drove down in his Swift car. Report says that some of them came in Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Pajero and Mahindra Bolero.
It seems most of the party men forgot philosphy of the AAP which shot to the fame because of its simplicity and honesty
Only controversial Minister Somnath Bharti maintained the legacy of the party and came to the ceremony traveling in Delhi metro. No one can believe that these are the same party people who had arrived in auto-rickshaws, Delhi Metro and Maruti cars just 10 months ago. But seeing this it can be said that they are not Aam Admi anymore and have become Khas Admi.
Earlier, AAP's website on Friday posted an image as well as a video, prepared by the party ahead of Delhi polls, showing people in Delhi wanted Modi for PM and now they want to Kejriwal as Delhi's next chief minister. AAP website had made a new page to entice the voters of Delhi under the banner headline - ‘Modi for PM, Kejriwal for CM'."
Experts say that this shows Kejriwal's desperation for coming into power in Delhi. He was asking votes on the name of his bete noire Modi.
