History Repeats and in less than two months after its historic win, Aam Aadmi Party showed the world that it is no less dictatorial than the Nazi party of Adolf Hitler that set out to run the mankind in World War Two, reiterating old political mantra “Power Corrupts and Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely.”
In a shocking revelation to the world of their true nature, the volunteers of Aam Aadmi Party, not the national council members alone, decided to throw out Yogendra Yadav, Anand Kumar, Ramdoss and every other voice that spoke against one leader — Arvind Kejriwal — with an open show of hands than any secret ballot. No show-cause notice was given, nor any explanation sought from the leaders of high profile who pose danger to Kejriwal’s stature in the party.
Reportedly, the message sent was clear — You are out as victory is not yours. Those who criticize Aam Aadmi Party in the past were ridiculed and isolated in the party and unfortunately even Yogendra Yadav was silent.
In fact, when few Jews were initially targeted by thee Hitler’s Nazi volunteers in the 1920s, majority of their neighbours remained silent. This silence gave the leader enough conviction to perpetrate the Aryan cleansing initiative to force a larger extermination of the entire Jew community. No wonder, it led to the World War Two soon.
Today’s brutal political purge, ironically, was turned against those who remained silent till recently when their former colleagues were shouted down and heckled out of the party. Now they are the targets. Tomorrow, all those who remained silent spectators, including Ashutosh and other members, will be kicked out the same way if they open their voice against the Supreme Leader of the Aam Aadmi Party.
Ironic, but the AAP ideology has turned shockingly similar to the Communist parties which rarely allow dissidents or the Congress under Indira Gandhi that never let opponents survive within the party. How is AAP different? As a party, it has failed but the failure came after manipulating the victory with the Muslim vote and anti-BJP sentiments in the capital.
The flip side of the outcome is, however, simple. Arvind Kejriwal will now concentrate on governance without politics and it may prove beneficial to the common man. No doubt, he will remain unquestioned leader till the next elections. Whether he will grow into a national leader remains doubtful and dangerous too.
