Dilli Dur Ast?

August 21 2018

A recent survey by a local Hindi daily has stirred the hornet’s nest in Delhi, saying that the BJP could come a cropper in as many as five of the seven Lok Sabha seats in the 2019 general trials at the hustings. Only Ramesh Bidhuri and Pravesh Verma could retain their constituencies. This could be happy tidings for the Aam Aadmi Party, but it is suffering a famine of bankable (readable voteable) electoral faces. The names that have been cleared so far by AAP boss Arvind Kejriwal include Dilip Pandey from North East Delhi, Rahul Mehra from New Delhi, Rahul Chaddha from South Delhi and party treasurer Pankaj Gupta, who runs an IT company from Gurgaon. Scuttlebutt is that the names of Atishi Marlena and Gagan Singh are also in the reckoning. At the same time, a big section of the party still favours seat sharing with the Congress. The decision lies at the doors of Kejriwal, whose few past decisions have given the party some hard knocks!
