AAP+BJP or AAP+Congress?... The Big Question in Delhi Now

The election results of the country's capital was astounding to one and all in the nation. After 15 years, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) managed to sweep the polls, though not with majority. it was 4 counts behind to forming a Government of its own.

What matters is the trust people place in the candidates. The victorious party BJP indeed has citizens vouching for it. People in Delhi have placed their hopes in BJP, thinking the party would bring in the necessary 'winds of change' for their betterment. So why give up so easily?

The party should strive to form a Government until the last minute. It should request for support from other parties as well if necessary. If they give up this time after the people made them win, Delhiites would lose their faith in BJP. They would not be trusted again.

On the other is the newly-formed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which are 8 counts short of majority. They were seen rallying the streets of Delhi at all odd hours, even at night asking for vote and support. Considering it is a relatively new party, it has managed to make its mark in the election polls. Yes, it is indeed a great feat!

But won't its supporters question the decisions it is taking now? It has rallied against Corruption all this while. The AAP has always stood for the good of the people or so it claims. But what about now? It is ready to accept the support of Congress even though Congress was the party during the rule of which maximum amount of corruption has been seen in the nation. Shouldn't the Congress party be given time to retrospect and brood over their mistakes, rather than allowing them to have power yet again? Every human being needs time to retrospect and correct themselves, so why not the Congress party? If the Congress heeds to the demands of AAP, will this be the right decision to let Congress help them form Government?

The citizens of Delhi and the whole nation would have been happier to see BJP and AAP forming a Government instead, because people trusted them the most. That was vividly made clear in the polling results recently. So what is it that stops them from taking the right course? Is it their selfish needs which they want to fulfill in the name of public good, or they have some scheme up their sleeve? The people need answers.

Moreover, in the 18 demands made by the AAP to Congress and BJP, one of them is very controversial. One demand states,
The VIP culture should be stopped in Delhi. No MLA, minister or Delhi official will use a red beacon on their cars. Neither will they live in big bungalows nor take any special security.
Let us say this demand is met. Then no administrative or police official in Delhi would be given special security. But won't that attract their enemies to do them harm in this chance? Most officials have threats to their lives if not secured properly. So does this demand safegaurd the life of officials?

If this demand is met, and some official lose their life; what then? That would jeopardize the whole office which was looked after by the concerned official.

How can we forget Rajiv Gandhi being assasinated in the midst of tight security? or Indira Gandhi murdered by her own bodyguards? Maybe all of this should be taken into account before deciding upon anything.

The country needs change. But not that change which would jeopardize the nation or the faith of people in democracy. Rules should be made keeping in mind the security of our motherland, for whom many soldiers have laid down their precious lives guarding it!

Jai Hind!
