One year of AAP in Delhi
Here’s a report card of Aam Aadmi Party’s first full year in power.
Exactly a year ago, on February 14, Arvind Kejriwal took his oath as Delhi chief minister after a sweeping victory of 67 out of 70 seats. It has been a year of highs and lows for the party that ended BJP’s winning streak and uprooted Congress from the National Capital. AAP pretty much stayed in the news throughout this period for all the right and wrong reasons. From implementing odd-even rule to providing the much-needed electricity subsidy and tussle with the Centre, it was a roller-coaster of a year for Kejriwal government. But did they keep their promises? Did they deliver? Is there hope for more?
Here’s a report card of Aam Aadmi Party’s first full year in power:
Thanks to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government for offering ‘tangible’ benefits to the people with its 50 per cent subsidy on power bills, Delhiites aren’t complaining, even as its other poll promises in this sector are yet to take off.
On top of the 50 per cent subsidy on power bills, AAP gained more support from the people due to fewer power outages last summer.
“The power subsidy is a commitment that we have made to our people and I am happy to say that the scheme is going to stay beyond the stipulated one year,” Power Minister Satyendar Jain
The situation was so grim that the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) clearly stated that the outages were not because of lack of power supply but due to poor maintenance of transmission lines.
Giving free water to all households; scrapping the annual hike in rates that the Sheila Dikshit government had introduced; and cracking down on the tanker mafia that thrived because of the city’s unplanned nature – these were the promises. A year later, the government’s record on water has been mixed.
Water supply has been increased by 60 MGD on average and 205 colonies have been added to the network, but projects like installing GPS on all tankers and setting up drinking water kiosks have been delayed.
Delhi Jal Board Chairperson and Cabinet member Kapil Mishra on how the AAP government’s pre-election focus on water has sustained a year on.
Of the 1,639 unauthorised colonies in Delhi, 1,105 colonies have piped water now
The Aam Aadmi Party has its origins in the India Against Corruption movement organised by Anna Hazare. But what has the party done in a year to make Delhi ‘corruption-free’?
The legislation is credited with triggering an electoral tidal wave that would bestow upon AAP a never-before ‘historical mandate’ but the road to delivering it has been a turbulent one.
Delhi Assembly passes the resolution for restoration of Anti-corruption Bureau, which the AAP govt alleged had been diluted through “interference” from the Centre
Surender Singh Yadav, a 1997-batch IPS officer, was hand-picked by Kejriwal to head the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) as its additional commissioner, on his tumultuous maiden year in office.
As Delhi’s car population increased, number of elevated roads, signal-free corridors tried to keep pace but failed. However, AAP took a different path to tackle the issue of transportation in Delhi.
Though it didn’t really promise new roads or flyovers for Delhi, the government has been proactive in finishing such work left by the previous government
The govt’s. plan on last-mile connectivity includes a combination of shared autos, metro-feeder services and e-rickshaws, and by fixing and delimiting routes. However, no concrete steps have been taken yet.
In the past five years, the DTC’s daily ridership rose by 17 lakh, but only 1,500 buses were added
From promises of making government schools better, to regulating private schools and increasing the prospects of higher education, the AAP had pledged a lot to Delhiites.
While initiatives have been taken for primary education, higher education is yet to see a transformation. A year on, the government plans to do exactly the same.
The government identified 54 pilot schools that were to be developed as model schools. The ultimate plan is to develop all government schools on the lines of these model schools.
The AAP had promised to help students with special needs when it comes to getting admission and also provide them financial support.
The AAP’s power tussle with the Centre has regularly made headlines in the one year it has been in power. Here’s how it affected governance in the due course of the year.
The root of this escalating political tussle between the AAP government and the BJP-led Centre is the city’s peculiar administrative status.
AAP has brought in some digital solutions to ensure greater transparency and limit the interaction of bureaucrats with citizens. But stil there’s a long way to go.
Delhi’s deputy Chief Minister speaks on how the Centre is provoking them and when they react, they are called autocratic and combative. But AAP government will not sit quiet and is prepared to fight their way out
COMPARED TO INDIA AMERICANS HAVE LESS OPTIONS AS FAR AS ELECTIONS ARE CONCERNED.
AMERICA HAS ONLY TWO PARTIES Democrat vs. Republican BUT IN INDIAN DEMOCRACY YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN PARTY THERE ARE MANY PARTIES IT DEPENDS UPON WHO WINS THE ELECTION BASED ON PEOPLE’S CHOICE.AMERICA IS STILL RUN BY INDUSTRALISTS WHO CONTROL THE WHOLE ECONOMY.
W DELHI: Anti-graft crusader Arvind Kejriwal on Monday announced a 23-member national executive with the formal launch of his party Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). While Kejriwal was elected national convener of the party, Pankaj Gupta will be the national secretary and Krishna Kanth the national treasurer.
The party will have no president or general secretary. Seven more members will be inducted at a later stage taking the national executive’s strength to 30. The party will also have a national coordinator who will be elected and a political affairs committee at the national level modeled on the lines of a politburo.
Other members of the national executive include lawyer Prashant Bhushan, former news producer Manish Sisodia, Gopal Rai (associated with student politics in UP), Azad Samaj Sewa Samiti president Sanjay Singh, poet Kumar Vishwas, activist Naveen Jai Hind, social worker from JP movement Dinesh Vaghela and psephologist Yogendra Yadav.
Delhi University professor Ajit Jha, Tamil Nadu activist Christina Samy, JNU professor Anand Kumar, former UP MP Ilyas Azmi, former journalist Shazia Ilmi, former Arunachal information commissioner Habung Payang, farmers’ leader from UP Yogesh Dahiya, workers’ leader in Odisha MBN Pannikar, lawyer Ashok Agrawal, IAC activist Mayank Gandhi and engineer and social worker Rakesh Sinha are the other members.
The party has not given any position to former law minister Shanti Bhushan as his son is a member of the national executive and two people from the same family cannot hold posts according to party rules.The party will also reserve seats for those from backward communities and women, if found under-represented. As of now, the executive list has two women, Shazia Ilmi and Christina Samy National executive member Yogendra Yadav said, “There is less representation from south, it is a deficiency and we should be able to overcome that. This is partly because of the areas where the movement became stronger like north India. That is why an unevenness is reflected here. We hope to make up for that. We have left seven positions vacant.”
Here is the list of seven Cabinet ministers:
CM-designate Arvind Kejriwal: Finance and Power.
Dy CM-designate Manish Sisodia: Education, PWD and Urban Development.
Gopal Rai: Transport and Labour.
Asim Ahmed: Food and Supplies.
Satendra Jain: Health and Industry.
Jitendra Singh Tomar: Law.
Sandeep Kumar: Women and Child Welfare.
“None of them can attend, but others may, let’s see,” Sisodia said, adding, “We have also sent invitations to Ajay Maken and Kiran Bedi.”
Ajay Maken of the Congress and the BJP’s Kiran Bedi were pitched by their parties in direct contest against Arvind Kejriwal and have borne the brunt of the crushing defeat.
The AAP won 67 of Delhi’s 70 seats, leaving a measly three for the BJP and none for the Congress.
