    If idealism as is visualised by Mr Bhushan will be taken as kosher, then it will be a wee bit problematic, especially when it comes to those who switched from other parties to join AAP since they will also be carrying the baggage of their erstwhile political party's ethos, which is obviously not in sync with the idealism that AAP professes.

    For many politicians, politics is not to serve the people or the Nation, but a mere profession with all its allurement of office and power.\

    A schizophrenic bind.

    Delhi is a powerhouse... a very sick political power house.
    AK is not a seasoned politician ...

    We will see a lot of propoganda at play by AK to cover his lack of abilities and competitiveness of the party AAP.

    Keeping fingers crossed to see the people who manage the state portfolio..

    Governing and confrontation are two separate thing. There is no immediate danger to Kejriwal government but long term desertion by legislature is a distinct possibility. Euphoria is over and AAP has to behave like an honest bunch to succeed.

    Already the reality of the yawning gap between governance and populist poll promises is hitting the AAP.

    They are realising that they have to BUY power, since Delhi does not generate electricity and that would be a huge drain on the exchequer if the cost to consumer has to be subsidised; and huge subsidy is but obvious if the poll promises are to be kept.

    More aspects of reality will emerge and the MLAs will be hard-pressed to explain to their constituents.

    Same results of public support waning will be there as has been seen with the initial euphoria with the BJP.

    Delhi is getting cheap power from Central pool. Power from Central Generating Stations to beneficiary States/Union Territories is allocated in accordance with a formula. This formula is in favour of Union Territories. If Delhi gets full statehood then they will also face power shortages like other states. Now Central Govt. is spending money for Delhi Police. If Delhi Govt. want to control Delhi Police then who will spend money? Is there any civilized country in this world where Central Govt. don't control capital city?

    Good points.

    I was not aware of that Delhi was getting power from Central Generating Stations and getting it cheap already.

    Does indicate that the desire for freebies can never be satiated. The more you get, the more you want and worse, demand as your birthright!

    Delhi should get full Statehood and then we would see how they think a State with its own Police and everything can satisfy the people. Right now, they have their favourite weapon promise the Moon and blame others for failure.

    As it is, everything promised seems to be cut down since they are realising the hassle of fulfilling populism or it has been merely half truths to generate votes.

    AK can control Delhi. But Bhushans are spending more time with AAP leaders in other states. Prashant Bhushan is providing legal services to almost all environmentalists who joined AAP. I don't think Bhushans are fools to donate Rs.2 Cr without getting anything in return. I agree that they can't do much before 2019. But they are planning for 2019.
