Capital Competition: The Aam Aadmi Party

Delhi is going to the polls on December 4th and the Aam Aadmi Party is making heads turn by entering the political scenario. Will a new political party comprising of the common masses headed by a former member of the Civil Services actually make a difference, is it the beginning of the change our nation is waiting to see is the new question.

The Aam Aadmi Party is gaining a certain amount of momentum and is now in the league (since the other parties have begin to think about it and make statements that they don’t have to think about it). They have a better election campaign and are better noiticed than the Lok Satta party but still leave room for lot of questions. Will they,if they get into power, be able to satisfy everything they promised without being swallowed up by the Bermuda Triangle of Indian Politics? How well will a former TV anchor, a former Army Commando, an auto driver, an alumni of IIT Delhi and Arvinr Kejriwal be able to pull off the necessary work on the back end, being people with not so much idea about how it works “underground”?

Is a new political party the only right solution or applying some pressure at the right time on the existing established political parties do the trick for us? Whatever the AAP is capable of or is not one can only say after they come into power. Meanwhile, the ripples they are creating are probably nurturing another young idea to take shape and are getting people to be open to these new ideas.
