Kejriwal’s arrogance led to AAP’s defeat in MCD polls

The humiliating defeat faced by the ruling Aam Aadmi Party in the elections to three municipal corporations in the capital is the result of arrogance shown by party supremo Arvind Kejiwal. The Delhi chief minister quarrelled with almost every person worth the name. He quarrelled with the Lt. Governor, with the Centre, with founder-members of his own party and even denigrated constitutional bodies like the judiciary and Election Commission. Kejriwal used insulting words for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, described Election Commission as ‘Modi’s agent’, questioned the intentions of judiciary, denigrated the media, and levelled baseless allegations against persons of moral repute. The result was: the people of Goa and Punjab rejected his party in the assembly elections, voters in Rajouri Garden, Delhi, made the AAP candidate lose his deposit, and yet Kejriwal and his coterie did not correct their course of action. The electoral defeat in MCD polls was so humiliating that there is hardly any space left for the party to recover. Many leaders of Aam Aadmi Party are now raising questions about Kejriwal’s leadership, his arrogance and his style of working. The fall from grace for Kejriwal in the eyes of the public in a short span of two years is, indeed, shocking.
