Aam Aadmi Party
My fellow Indian,
Under Anna’s leadership, India came on streets against corruption. The people demanded a strong anti-corruption law. The government did not agree. None of the parties agreed. Obviously, they couldn’t have agreed because if they passed a strong Jan Lokpal Bill, most of the politicians would be in jail and their properties would be confiscated.
My friend, our entire political system has become rotten. Most of today’s problems are due to corrupt politics. Unless it is cleansed, nothing would improve. That’s why we had to enter politics – we tried to stay away, but we realized that approach would not work. We have now formed the Aam Aadmi Party.
Gandhiji said that politics devoid of honesty and spirituality is disastrous for the country. We have to change the politics of this country. I am confident that together, we can.

Though now under law, we are a political party, however, the struggle against corruption continues. I am sitting on an indefinite fast from 23rd March. Why? Because in collusion with electricity and water companies, Delhi Government has increased electricity and water prices to such levels, that it is becoming almost impossible for common people in Delhi to pay up their bills. Many people are taking loans to pay their bills. But that can’t go on for long. Documents available with us indicate that the prices should be at least half of what they are today. The prices have been increased only due to corruption to favour a few companies. If something is not done immediately, the government plans to further increase these rates in the coming months.
BJP is in opposition in Delhi. It either remains quiet or makes pretence of opposition. The only hope is the people of Delhi. But people are scared. When we asked people to stop paying their illegitimate bills, they were scared that their electricity might be disconnected or court cases might be filed against them.
In order to take the fear out of the minds and hearts of the people and to unite them, I am sitting on an indefinite fast from 23rd March. This time, we are not demanding anything from the government. My appeal is directly to the people of Delhi – “I will stop paying my electricity and water bills, will u also do that? Let’s all unite. Don’t be scared. If most of the people in Delhi stop paying their electricity and water bills, no government will have the guts to disconnect anyone’s electricity. Even if the government does that, connect it again yourself.
I have given up food from March 23rd; will you give up your fears and stop paying your bills?”
Are we encouraging anarchy? No. If the government enacts a completely unjust law or is guided by corruption, then according to Gandhiji, it is the duty of every citizen to violate that unjust law and invite punishment. Else, we would be supporting injustice and corruption. Today, there is anarchy in every household in Delhi due to government’s corruption. If people stop paying bills, there might be anarchy in the houses of some politicians, but people will live in peace.

Stressing on this he pointed out that, “It’s the people who should decide where their money should be utilized”. He called for a participative democracy. Mr Arvind Kejriwal stressed that every person is needed to be part of system in order to change the system. Expressing his concern about how would he insure that his party has corruption-free members, he said that an initial background screening of the candidates is mandatory in the Aaam Aadmi Party. He disliked the fact that the concentration of power is there only at the centre level.
Mr Kejriwal also quoted the famous line by Mahatma Gandhi that “every village will be a republic in itself “. On being asked about his views on reservations , he replied “many social atrocities are still prevalent in our society so there is a need for reservation but it should not be given to the “creamy layer “. He was of the opinion that it should reach out to the people of backward castes who truly need it. He believes that Indians are “first class people being ruled by third class politics.” He emphasised the fact that his party ( AAM ADAMI PARTY ) stands for truth and transparency and that truth was their only weapon to fight corruption which is a corollary to bad systems and governance . He called for the youth of today to help in the nation building and making our society free from menace of corruption, it’s the time to decide their dharma and give time for nation building. Sh Kejriwal also said if corruption can be controlled then our petrol rates can come down to Rs. 40.

According to him, “Our system presently has the Prevention of corruption act but it is not enough to curb corruption today,” The government proposed JAN LOKPAL BILL also contain several flaws which need to be plugged to make a strong JAN LOKPAL BILL. His party promises to ensure such kind of governance to people which is in consonance with our preamble of the nation and is truly for the people and by the people. There were a lot of questions from the audience and Sh Kejriwal satisfied all the queries with succinct answers.
The session finally concluded with the couplet of the famous Hindi poet, Sh Dushyant Kumar “Ho gai peer parbat-si, pighalni chahiye, is himalay se koi ganga nikalni chahiye…… aaj ye deewar pardoon ki tarah hilane lagi, shart lekin thi ki buniyad hilani chahiye har sarak par har gali main har nagar har gaon main hath lehrate huye har lash chalni chahiye sirf hangama khara karna mera maqsad nahi meri koshish ye hai ki ye soorat badalni chahiye mere sine main nahi to tere sine main sahi ho kahi bhi aag lekin aag jalni chahiye”.
According to him, this couplet summed up his struggle to create anon corrupt governance India. The entire audience comprising of faculties and students of various Institutes of Greater Noida, BIMTECH faculties and students and others, sang this along with him. The Director of BIMTECH, Dr Harivansh Chaturvedi welcomed Sh Kejriwal to BIMTECH and Greater Noida. The compeering was done by BIMTECH students
