When I saw this video sting today, more than anything, it pained me. It touched a raw nerve that at one time in 2011 saw hope in this young man named Arvind Kejriwal. He came to conquer power, instead hunger for power has now conquered him.
What a shame! Even the universally hated Congress party hasn’t stooped to this level of media nexus to protect votebanks. Stinger getting stung.
This is indeed a serious question of AAP leader’s ethics, forget media’s which has none anyway. Please watch the first post-resignation interview in which Kejriwal comes across as a patriot and a nationalist espousing the cause of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, and blames, god forbid, BJP for NOT according him the respect! An AAP stooge journo Punya Prasoon Bajpai doesn’t even question him on why AAP leader Prashant Bhushan is defending a case for Congress-controlled NCERT that called Bhagat Singh a “terrorist” in textbooks.
Fakeness and hypocrisy to the core of Arvind Kejriwal exposed in this scripted interview targeted at middle-class votebanks: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=1471477009730493
I had a blogpost several months back on the dangers of “Paid Media” phenomenon (this was before they started promoting AAP). It is worth a read at this precarious juncture where middle India is at crossroads, and being hijacked by forces detrimental to India’s long term interests, to weaken the potential of our country by imposing a weak government.
This is exactly the middle-class trap we talk about when we refer to funding from Ford Foundation for suspect NGOs who push anti-national agenda in the name of fairy tale anti-corruption (and now on Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s sacrifice) that no one can disagree with. Let’s pray for Bhagat Singh’s soul to rest in peace in spite of being reduced to a football by suspect interests against the very nation he gave up his life for.
Wake up India, before it is too late!
