AAP: Lies and U-Turns

AAP is the latest novelty factor in India. TV Media is going 24*7 abuzz with how cool the bunch of activists turned politicians are. Print media is writing laurels for "aam aadmi" finally governing Dilli. Media "pundits" are going ga-ga as to how Arvind Kejriwal's phenomenon will be changing India's political landscape, dislodging the established players like Narendra Modi. And social media's AAP fans are all out to prove how great is this new find for India.

And then I asked after one week of Aam Aadmi Party's government in Dilli, to list out some of their lies, and outright u-turns. Within 2 hours, I got enough material to write this blog. These were tweeted mostly with #AAPLies hash tag on Twitter. Since they are coming in large number, you can check out the tweets with that tag, for the latest info.

All the material provided here are courtesy my Twitter friends. If any item has untruth or half truth in it, please post a comment with the correction. I will review it.

Here we go.. listing the top 10 sections of lies and u-turns.

Section 1: Master lists

Tweep @bechaara openly challenges folks to counter him, after listing some #AAPlies.
‏@SaffronZeppelin shares a very interesting video.

Arvind Kejriwal's famous lies get exposed, amongst others:
"I will never fight elections in my life" 
"I don't want to hold any post in my life" 



Then @shaksingh shares an elaborate list of 15 #AAPlies.

He's quite well versed with these topics, so feel free to challenge him for links, if you feel any of these are incorrect.

Then @ArinKamath shared 5 key u-turns of AAP, proving that they are not necessarily AAM. The most damning one is the #AAPCON government they formed with Congress support.


Section 2: AAP Taking Corrupt Congress Support

‏@RPrasad_7 asked: Why AAP is cheating people that BJP has offered them support? Only Congress offered support, not BJP particularly, when you focus on Congress giving unconditional support to form the government.


Another friend shared a video of Arvind Kejriwal & Yogendra Yadav being caught red-handed by Subramanin Swamy. Hilarious.. watch it.


Then @Purple_Truth shares the real truth of AAP & Congress relationship, poupularly known on the social media as #AAPCON government.


@SachsR also shared a similar #AAPCON drawing, this time from the funny Amul Baby.
"Hand in hand, Aam in Arm?"


Section 3: AAM Hesitating On Sheila Dikshit Corruption Cases

‏@nationalizer shared the most damning thing about how AAP has connived to save Sheila Dikshit's Congress corruption.

AAP had a page on its website called "Pol Khol" meaning expose them.
http://aamaadmiparty.org/PolKhol/Electricity.aspx

At the time of writing this blog, the page was missing. Hence producing the archive that @nationalizer provided.

Why would AAP remove this critical page from their website?

@niranjanprabhu shared a video where Kejriwal is exposed on his flip flop on Sheila.
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152108859596346

Another similar expose shared by @chotivalebaba on Dr. Harsha Vardhan's charges and Kejriwal making a disgusting u-turn.
Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qxI_xdOUuY

@dreamthatworks asked.. AAP said Congress corruption will be probed in 7 days and it is alraedy the 8th day, nothing happened. Why "Mr. Clean"?



@LostProphet77 asked the same. "Sheila Dikshit would be in jail within 7 days of AAP forming Delhi Govt". What happened?

Section 4: "Free" Water

@IamSrivatsanV saved an AAP Busting detail about water.


@gk125 asked - Is AAP Delhi water formula full of leaks?

"The people of Delhi may be in for a rude shock, following the new water pricing formula of AAP. They may have to shell-out 2-3 times more. Where meters are faulty, cost will be even higher"


Read the analysis: http://www.moneylife.in/article/aap-delhi-water-formula-is-full-of-leaks/35822.html

@IamSrivatsanV shared the Kejriwal's waterfront by Surjit S Bhalla, which talks about Reverse Robinhood episode where poor will pay for rich people's water consumption.

"Aap Ki Amir Party" Indian Express writes..



Read analysis here: http://www.indianexpress.com/news/kejriwal-s-waterfront/1215340/0

@ArinKamat shared the so called terms and conditions which make the application of this free water stuff difficult.


Of course, by now, most AAP supporters will be trying to find some material against BJP, instead of trying to defend the drama of AAP.

Section 5: Electricity

@IamSrivatsanV shared a comparison with older tariff. Unless you are very carefully watching the electrical meter, even one unit above 400 units can make you pay more. So this is not truly a power tariff cut that aam aadmi would understand or monitor closely.


Section 6: Rakhi Birla's car being "attacked"

@PawanDande claims, Rakhi Birla planted story of attack on car, while it was hit by cricket ball, even boy apologized, still nautanki & FIR

@TrustBJP shared a video explaining this more:


Why this drama Rakhi ji? First day shared auto, then sleeping in assembly, then getting Innova car, then no security claim, then this drama for personal car...

Section 7: AAP's Anjali Damania, known as "land shark" on social media.

‏@ArinKamath shared the details from Kejriwal's Headlines Today show in March 2013 and what was actually on AAP website (contradiction).


‏@gk125 shared the same video where Kejriwal lied about Anjali Damania. In fact the person who asked the question, tweeted to me on the same!

" She is a volunteer" drama exposed. 


Now the same "volunteer" Anjali, who is accused of being a land shark, against whom Kejriwal refused any probe internally, is Nagpur AAP's candidate in Maharashtra. If Anjali had some self respect, she would not be contesting from the party which disowned her on national TV!

Section 8:  Election Commission Clean Chit

@rameshnswamy shared the truth that EC never giving any clean chit, as claimed by AAP after getting exposed with that Sting operation against Shzia Ilmi, Kumar Vishwas and a few more.

Read: http://news.oneindia.in/new-delhi/election-commission-quashes-aap-claims-of-being-given-clean-chit-1348855.html

According to Election Commissioner HS Brahma the commission has not verified the veracity of the tape. He also added that unless the AAP challenges it legally, no clean chit can be given to it. The party had earlier claimed that the EC had given a clean chit to the party and declared that the sting operation CD was doctored.

Section 9:  Where is JanLokpal?

@ArinKamath asks, where is Jan Lokpal? This was asked on 31st December, but we can understand the delay in forming the government. At least by 6th January some movement should have happened? That too after using Anna Hazare's name in spite of him clearly saying don't use?


Section 10: No Government Car

Coming to Arvind Kejriwal's famous tweet about "we never ever" part of government transport.




@masala_chaas busts that lie too quickly.
In Apr 2013: See the conditions in this video, put by AAP for giving tickets.



And  now in Jan 2014, giving gas guzzling Rs. 15 to 18 lakh (upper range) costing, foreign brand lavish cars to AAP ministers.

NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party Ministers of Delhi, except Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, were today given Toyota Innova cars as official perks.

A number of ministers, including Manish Sisodia, Rakhi Birla and Saurabh Bhardwaj, came to Delhi Assembly complex in official cars.

Asked if coming by such cars was reflective of practising austerity, Kejriwal downplayed it saying the party never said it's ministers will not use official cars.


How convenient!
I have 100s of other tweets and information shared by online friends. But this is enough for now..

Can we really trust such political chameleons?

    1. This comment seems like Rahul Gandhi asking the Industrialists, "What will you do to solve this situation?".
      Going by the nature of your post, I gather that AAP supporters are now behaving exactly like Congress or BJP supporters. They live in denial and engage in blame-game if some points are raised against their party. I thought AAP supporters were different.

    3. Please tell us if Arvind was so keen on working for the country why did he not try to use his job as an IRS officer for the same? Why the need to go do another course abroad on government money and then come back and quit immediately? Isn't the whole point of being a Civil Servant the will to serve the people of the country? Corruption could best be handled by being a part of that scenario and cleaning it up as you go! And before attacking BJP supporters, please try to find logical answers to these questions! It was a great thing you did trying to support these new energetic people, but just because you made one decision which may not be the wisest one, doesn't mean you have to continue to defend it even in the face of the contrary! Ek galti agar ho gayi toh aage usse sudharne ki jagah usse defend nahin karna chahiye! As they say -Do not throw good money after the bad! So fine, we all liked the idealistic idea they presented, but now that it seems like they arent all that they claim, there is NOTHING WRONG in admitting it and moving on! Faltoo mein defend karke kuch nahin hoga! The point isn't that BJP is perfect! The point is AAP CLAIMED TO BE! and they have turned out to NOT BE! Theek hai! Koi baat nahin! People who voted for them are nice people who wanted to see India grow and change, but now that it is clear that these people are not the ones who can do it, its time to move on! The ones who voted for them or believed in them are NOT the ones who are wrong...its these leaders with feet of clay who are bad! Only by admitting our mistakes can we grow and help our nation be the best it can be. So seriously, stop being a blind fool and defend unreasonable arguments. Again, I repeat, You do not lose prestige by admitting you made a mistake! Its only when you refuse to see the light that you become a fool and drag the country down with you :) BTW, I am not saying this as a BJP supporter or a Congress supporter. I am saying this as an Indian who loves her country and wants to see it be the bloody best in the world!

  9. Good job Kiran!!! nice compilation
    These guys has not been around even 10 days and see their colours. Many people knew it beforehand but they kept quiet as there was nothing against this and rhetoric was created to a non-sense level. Now after one week we can see-
    1. They fake attacke on themselves
    2. They want big houses while getting votes in the name of AAM AADMI
    3. They want refrendum on everything, do not want to take any decision
    4. They want to separate Kashmir and divide India
    5. They want to control judiciary
    6. They want to increase quota and play politics of appeasement
    Basically they are taking people for fools but now stands completely exposed in their hypocrisy.

  10. For some people, they were standing completely exposed after the fake sting operation. It's good you guys are putting so much effort in gathering this material, I am sure this keeps AAP reminded what they promised, it's been less than a month since they came to power in Delhi. Won't take them much time in initiating inquiry against any corruption charges of the last government.

    1. Its fine to need time to prove themselves. Of course they need it. The problem is, they talk just way too much! They have been making unrealistic claims which has been exposing them as way too naive to be holding such important posts! Its great to give new inexperienced people a chance, giving them a chance in places of such high stakes? There is a reason why everywhere in the world, there is a huge long grooming and training process for leaders, whether it is the corporate world or the political world. And these people seem to be distinctly lacking in training and preparedness for such an important role!! Making such wild accusations like "All people in the Parliament are rapists and murderers" as Mr. Kejriwal did last year, shows a distinct lack of respect for the voters of India and the constitutional body politic! I am not sure, in such a scenario how wise it is to give power in the hands of such inexperienced and self-righteous souls - specially if they are considering representing India as its PM and Cabinet...will they make such statements at the Global level as well?! Imagine them being a part of the G-20 summit or the BRICS summit and making such an absolutely unforgivable gaffe?? Plus don't they seem a little too impressed with themselves which is leading to high arrogance and irrationality in all their efforts?

  12. You have spent your most valuable asset - TIME in compiling this ... Appreciating it ... If you do the same with BJP .. CONGRESS .. Or any political party before casting youe vote you will find no one is worth for it .. I am not a AAP Supporter .. I am not a BJP supporter ... I am not a congress supporter .. But comparing to all the corrupted And false facetted political leaders Aap is a startup and looks like they need a Chance to prove they are worth a try .. Delhi people have given them a chance ... Lets closely watch them and decide ... Gujarat was not just namo ... There are lakhs and lakhs of people who have sacrificed the happiness of being with family and earning outside of india ... All those people wanted to see their city develop and they developed it ... If you look in facts of development of gujarat it started long long ago ... If honesty was there namo wouldn't be taking credit for what people did ... Wait and see what Aap is capable of ... Don't blindly be a BJP .. AAP .. CONGRESS .. UPA .. NDA Supporters ... Be Indian supporters ..

  17. First the article has full of half truths or half stories which leads to wrong conclusion.
    1. Congress is not part of government. AAP was in a catch-22 situation when it took this decision accept outside support.
    2. All the points mentioned in the pictures have half truths or simply lies to misrepresent facts. Sometimes very silly reasons :) Author said he will show proofs to links if asked???? (Why not just include proofs as article is already long)
    3. Repeated mentioning of same thing by different people in different ways
    "I will never fight elections in my life"
    Only people who fought in the front line on this Anti-Corruption movement know what they actually faced from govt. They were challenged to join the politics just to pass the bill making a mockery on him.
    4. I don’t understand, he already initiated an Audit on Electricity Companies mentioned in the site which congress was not able to do in 4 years sighting silly reason. Making an allegation is different and proving it is different. Also may be he is purposefully not doing this for now as he might want to raise that issue at the end of cleanup may be fearing the collapse of govt. And that is the reason Mr.BJP is forcing to take action on Congress Leaders. Having said that he is doing very good job so far. Far better any of the existing parties like BJP or Congress.
    5. Another issue is free water. See the below link for proper explanation on the topic.
    http://www.aamaadmiparty.org/blog/admin/is-aap-really-giving-water-%E2%80%9Cfree%E2%80%9D-no-telescopic-tariff-removes-mass-subsidies
    And dude the graph is utter wrong. The link provided for proof at "moneylife" is paid news. Do you think mainstream media is such a fool to not to raise this issue if it true. Also the link provided for indianexpress artical is broken or a dummy link.
    6. Concerns raised by Electricity is just an allegation with no authentic source ( at least a mainstream media). It was custom made so as to misrepresent facts.
    7. AK asked RakhiBirla to withdraw the complaint after the reason of found.
    8. about "Anjali Damania". See the below video AK giving clarificatio
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZCReQNnHVY
    It is not about people doing wrong it is how is AAP handling those complaints that matter.
    9. Election Commission refutes AK's claim of giving clean chit, at the same time it didnt even say the CD is not doctored.
    10. Creating a bill is no ordinary thing which can be done in couple of days. AAP already announced it is going to introduce the JanLokpal bill by FEB.
    11. Dude come on the author also mentioned about grammatical mistakes done by AK in "No Government Car”. Being critical is good but not to this extent. Again let me ask one question what is wrong in using government supplied cars for Office. AK only intention is he don’t want special envoys which block the whole road which cause inconvenience to common people. Don’t expect too much. Also Innova is a common car used for CABS. See how it is exaggerated in the post.
    Finally the author just put all the allegations which were already replied by AK and his team.
