The social activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal has shaken up political talks with the making of his political party ‘Aam Aadmi Party’. Kejriwla claims that AAP will promote the ideals of a bottom-up political culture.
He said that AAP will stick to fight against corruption, but where does it stand on other crucial issues – like economic reforms or the everyday, given that they too determine electoral votes?
Talking to media, team AAP member Yogendra Yadav said, “The party has not yet worked out its economic policy.”
He said, the AAP has just worked out the constitution’s guarantee of providing economic equality to all.
Mr. Yadav said, “The problem to my mind really was that the ideals of equality, of making a society that is just to all was attached to certain instruments, that are wooden. They do not work after a point.”
Yadav added, “This complete obsession with public sector and the complete belief that everything that the state does would be wonderful, those instruments need revisiting. We should be open ended about it”
Moreover, Mr. Yadav added that AAP does not believe in critical issues such as health and education. He asked, “How can we not be wedded to the idea of economic equality? What is so 1960s about it?”
Yogendra Yadav said, “We have a hawa and enthusiasm but we don’t have an organisation. We dont have the organisationsal might or resource but we have the national mood that seems to coincide.”
