Delhi, the national capital of India, is one of the most prosperous political hubs of India. It is the center of Indian politics too. From offices of leading national parties like Congress and BJP to the residence of primary leaders of political scene, mostly all the functioning of Indian politics is carried out from the Lutyen’s Delhi.
Last year Delhi held its assembly elections 2013 to choose its 7th chief minister. People went out in large numbers to vote for the apparent anti-incumbency of the ex-government. The verdict came out, the electorate went to no particular party in majority. One particular party surprised everyone. The Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) led by the IIT alumnus and former IRS officer Arvind Kejriwal gathered 28 seats in its debut year. BJP was the first largest party gathering 32 seats. Congress, the ruling party at that time, performed poorly at a meager 7 seats. The remaining going to the other parties. All the major parties fell short of the magical number required to form government Delhi. Until, INC(Indian National Congress) and AAP decided to form a coalition government.
The support of the Congress was external in nature, with none of its MLAs being a part of the ministry. The outcome of the Delhi assembly elections seemed to be this external tie-up between the 2 parties. Arvind Kejriwal was sworn in as the 7th Delhi chief minister with his cabinet consisting of prominent leaders of his party.
The party was felt to be promising with its larger than life promises with the Jan Lokpal bill being the most prominent one. After 49 days of commotion, opposition and work, the CM resigned. But even after the Govt. fell, the Delhi assembly wasn’t dissolved by the Lieutenant Governor Mr. Najeeb Jung. Till today, the capital is functioning under the President’s rule.
Amid all the political conjectures, the people of Delhi still have one question on their minds. And that question is, When will Delhi assembly re-election take place? For now, we cannot answer this question. But what we can do is, help the voters and get them ready for casting their votes if and whenever re-elections take place in Delhi.
