The Chief Minister of Delhi infamously known as Bhagoda is getting ready for another disappearing act. Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, is likely to take 10 days off from March 5 for naturopathy treatment. His second-in-command Manish Sisodia will take charge as acting Chief Minister during that time. This time in the name of naturopathy treatment he is trying to evade from Delhi when his party is in a huge crisis of infighting. The groupism and nepotism is the buzz word in the differently constituted AAP.
Mr Kejriwal, 46, has been advised the treatment by doctors because of high blood sugar and coughing. He is likely to fly to Bengaluru for treatment. His medical leave comes in the middle of full blown war in the AAP leadership, with two founder members, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, criticizing Mr Kejriwal and the party's functioning.
Without taking any responsibility or initiative to solve the infighting, he just posted tweets and shunned his responsibility as the AAP founder and convener. The people of Delhi have already started to feel the irresponsibility of the AAP leadership including Kejriwal, regarding the governance of the city-state.
"I am deeply hurt and pained by what is going on in the party," Mr Kejriwal tweeted for the first time on the raging internal battle in the party just days after its record election victory in the capital. "This is betrayal of trust that Delhi posed in us. I refuse to be drawn in this ugly battle. Will concentrate only on Delhi's governance," he said.
Kejriwal has to remember that escapism is not the solution of any problem; instead he should face the issues and solve it. This is actually a betrayal of Kejriwal and co towards the Delhiites who have overwhelmingly voted for them.
