Arvind Kejriwal made a grand debut in politics. He came into politics promising to remove corruption. He made statement against corrupt Congress politicians and assured that his party if comes to power, he will get them all arrested. He promised of corruption free government. However everything changed, since the day he got power.
Firstly he broke the promise of not ever forming government with Congress and formed a coalition government with Congress. After 49 days of governance, he broke away from the government alleging drama. Delhi was under President’s rule. A fresh elections was called after long time. Kejriwal won the elections with thumping majority this time promising to solve all problem and dissolve corruption.
But his government has been involved in some controversy or other. He should be called as “U Turn CM”, as he has been cheating people with fake promises. Even chameleon does not change color as Kejriwal does, alleges one of his old follower.
On January 2014, Kejriwal had released a list of most corrupt politicians in India. The leaders who were successful in bagging a position in this list were Rahul Gandhi, Kapil Sibal, Mulayam Singh, P Chidambaram and Mayawati. Yes, you heard it right. P Chidambaram was one among the top corrupt leaders in India, as per Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.
“Mrs Khurshid and Mrs Chidambaram also facing charges. If CBI becomes independent, all 3 will go to jail. Their wives will go to jail. Real reason is that Chidambaram is behind denial. He is one of 15 corrupt ministers. He will never allow permission. Anshan is against these 15 ministers. Chidambaram, Salman Khurshid and Sibbal to grant autonomy to CBI? Some kind of a joke? All three facing serious corruption charge,” Kejriwal had tweeted.
But now, Kejriwal has gone to a deafening silence. For what Kejriwal was once fighting has almost become a reality. Son of P Chidambaram has been arrested and the speculations are high that even P Chidambaram might get arrested. But Arvind Kejriwal is not even speaking on this. The man who was once hunting Chidambaram has not even tweeted on the arrest of his son.
He had floated his party with promises of providing a clean governance. But looking at the way he is heading, it is sure that he will even overtake the Congress party when it comes to corruption. Why is Arvind Kejriwal not attacking corrupt Chidambaram? In the year 2017, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has appointed P Chidambaram as his lawyer for a Supreme Court case. Kejriwal hired a lawyer whom he had once tagged as one of the most corrupt politicians in India. This move was mocked by none other than the Congress leaders.
It looks Kejriwal has a very good relationship with Chidambaram, therefore he did not comment anything when his close friend’s son was arrested. It also seems that Kejriwal had used his anti-corruption stand just for votes and nothing else.
