In a shocking development, Arvind Kejriwal who is a product of dharnas and one who has exploited it fully, now bans dharnas outside his own house. The reason given for this government order is, “it is apprehended that demonstration, protests or dharna will create public nuisance and serious law and order problems.” But the whole purpose of dharnas was to create such public nuisance which are techniques Kejriwal and his team has been doing, leading up to the formation of the Aam Admi Party. The bigger question is there is something deeper happening? To counter this, the Lt. Governor of Delhi stated that these administrative actions are illegal per our constitution.

Soni, an Aam Admi Party (AAP) activist based in Delhi had reportedly complained to the Arvind Kejriwal, the party’s president and Delhi Chief Minister and the AAP party about being molested by Ramesh Wadhwa, also an party member. After months of complaints no action was taken by the party. Not just that, after much delay the accused was arrested and released on bail. Instead of punishing the guilty, Soni, now deceased has accused Kejriwal of asking to “adjust karo” or “compromise”. Sadly, this led to depression and the victim Soni committed suicide, even though she has children and an extended family. Police is now investigating.
