    AAP comes under attack from Parrikar for R-Day comment

    Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Sunday joined a growing chorus to slam Aam Aadmi Party, saying those who sought to lower the prestige of the country's Republic Day should be "driven out" by the society.

    "People who are thinking of degrading India's Republic Day should be driven out by civil society. It is a dangerous trend," Parrikar, who was addressing an inaugural function of a school in Panaji, was quoted as saying by IANS.

    Taking on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Parrikar said that as the custodian of the Indian Constitution, the chief minister had no business to violate prohibitory orders during his recent protest in the national capital.

    Also questioning the AAP's use of slogan 'Bharat Mata ki Jai', Parrikar said it applies to the whole of India from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, and referred to AAP member Prashant Bhushan's recent comments on Kashmir where he advocated plebiscite to solve the nagging issue.

    The AAP has claimed that Bhushan's comments were misinterpreted.

    Parrikar's comments come days after protests against Bhushan over his remarks pertaining to Jammu and Kashmir and Maoism and a day after President Pranab Mukherjee made a veiled attack on Kejriwal's street protest saying the government is not "charity shop" and "populist anarchy" cannot be a substitute for governance.

    "Government is not a charity shop. Populist anarchy cannot be a substitute for governance. False promises lead to disillusionment, which gives birth to rage, and that rage has one legitimate target: those in power," Mukherjee had said while addressing the nation on the eve of Republic Day.

    Meanwhile, slamming Kejriwal for staging a two-day dharna outside Rail Bhavan defying prohibitory orders, BJP president Rajnath Singh said his party welcomed President's remark on AAP.

    Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley also hoped Kejriwal realises the difference between a fast at Rajghat (Mahatma Gandhi's memorial) and giving a call to policemen to abandon their duties and obstructing the Republic Day parade.

    Those in power should behave responsibly and respond in a gentle way. People gave power to see good governance and a change for good. A guy who has power should use it to resolve the anarchy situation not to create one.

    Delhi is AK's territory he should use his powers to get what he wants using constitutional rights, similarly if he wants to make a change he has to do the constitutional way, Jingoism will only lead to more chaos.

    Boys have to grow up & become men

    raging hormones,with unclear focus lead to chaos, anarchy & antics of chattering monkeys

    Kejriwal has to realize, protests, angst, jumping about is good for boys!

    Governance & administration is a man's job
