    Yes, I'm an Anarchist

    Countering the charges of opposition and criticism from some quarters of media that the Aam Aadmi Party is endorsing anarchism on the streets of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal declared himself an anarchist. An anarchist, because he would disturb Sushil Shinde, he would disturb the present political discourse.

    The dharna, earlier planned at the North Block eventually went on for 32 hours at a round about near the rail bhavan with thousands of Aam Aadmi supporters thronging the area barricaded by 500 policemen and armed personnel. The party declared to call off the protest only after Delhi lieutenant-general ordered the two concerned policemen to be sent on leave, who were responsible for separate incidents.

    The idea of a ruling chief-minister sitting on roads for a dharna has left a strong section of media declaring Kejriwal irresponsible and anarchist. The two day high voltage protest has raised mixed views all across, but the Aam Aadmi Party has continuously put across that neither has governance suffered nor did their movement.

      Had his demand been putting Delhi police under Delhi Govt., his case would have been justified. Anyways, not debating on his demands, but i have some questions regarding his actions/methods:

      1. Given Republic Day preparations, why could the dharna venue not be shifted to Jantar Mantar?
      2. Why his Law Minister was not reprimanded publicly and made to apologize for his unacceptable language?
      3. Why could he not wait for the enquiry against the alleged cops to be completed?

        Arvind Kejriwal recently told Barkha Dutt during an interview that he is ready to wait for enquiry but the basic rule to conduct an enquiry is to suspend the people involved till they are not given clean chit. But Mr. Shinde is hesitating suspending people who call themselves ‘HELPLESS’ to act against crime. Moreover none of Mr. Kejriwal’s demands is controversial or ingenuine. http://youtu.be/qeC6uHCLE-4
