    48-hour ultimatum for Arvind
    Trio threaten to pull plug


    New Delhi, Feb. 2: Three Delhi legislators, including an expelled Aam Aadmi Party MLA, have threatened to withdraw support to the Arvind Kejriwal government amid hints that two more could join them in pulling the plug.

    “There are five of us,” said expelled AAP legislator Vinod Kumar Binny, who has teamed up with the Janata Dal (United)’s Shoaib Iqbal and Independent Ramvir Shokeen.

    “We will be meeting tonight (to) decide on the contours of a third front in Delhi. If the AAP government does not fulfil the promises it made to the people of Delhi in the next 48 hours, they should not remain in power.”

    If the three follow up on their threat, the month-old AAP government will lose its majority in the House of 70. The AAP, which had 28 MLAs before Binny was expelled for calling Kejriwal a dictator, has the backing of the Congress’s eight legislators apart from the support of Iqbal and Shokeen.

    If the three MLAs withdraw support, the government’s strength will be reduced to 35, the halfway mark in the Assembly. If the other two MLAs, as Binny says, join them, the government will be left with the support of 33, three fewer than the majority mark of 36 and one more than the 32-strong BJP camp.

    “We cannot reveal right now who all are with us. We are giving Kejriwal’s government 48 hours to act in people’s interest,” Iqbal said but didn’t clarify whether they would wait till the February 13 special session or submit a no-confidence memorandum to the lieutenant governor.

    Iqbal said the government had forgotten the promises it had made. “They had promised 50 per cent reduction in electricity bills. They never specified that it was conditional and only for those who consume less than 400 units.”

    The government has halved power tariffs for consumers who use below 400 units and announced a little less than 700 litres of free water for residents every day.

    Iqbal also said the government’s “attempt to rein in the water tanker mafia” had led to a situation in which most parts of Delhi is not getting water. The government does not have enough tankers and private tankers are usually pressed into service. Since the government came to power, these private tankers have been taken off.

    AAP leader Sanjay Singh said the BJP and the Congress had “joined hands” and were trying to “pull us down because our popularity is growing”

    48-hour ultimatum for Arvind

    *************************************

    A very piquant and an intriguing situation has arisen.

    Is this a game plan of the AAP to become a minority and below the half way line, inspite of Congress support, since they are floundering in governance and are not being able to meet the aspiration of the people, (like water not reaching people as reported in the news) and in this way ensuring that they lose the right to govern?

    Or is AAP leader Sanjay Singh said the BJP and the Congress had “joined hands” and were trying to “pull us down because our popularity is growing”, right?

    It should not be so for the simple reason that both the Congress and BJP would like the AAP to hang themselves with the long rope given! And as the AAP moves from one problem to another, their credibility of being able to give good governance would be suspect and all the ideas of fielding a huge number of candidates would go for a six, leaving the field open for the BJP and the Congress.

    AAP runs into auto protest

    SOBHANA K NAIR
    New Delhi, Feb. 2: Auto-rickshaw drivers, who played a huge role as Aam Aadmi Party campaigners in the run-up to last year’s elections, will sit in protest outside the secretariat from tomorrow. Their grouse: the recent hike in CNG prices.

    Two days before the Arvind Kejriwal government took over on December 26, the price of CNG was hiked by Rs 4.50 per kg but there has been no corresponding increase in auto fares.

    The government, which claims the price has been hiked because Delhi’s quota is now shared with Ahmedabad following a Gujarat High Court order, have moved the Supreme Court.

    The auto-rickshaw union claims the petition is merely a diversionary tactic. “We are not asking for a fare hike, the least the government could have done was to give us subsidy,” said Rajendra Soni, president of the Delhi Auto-rickshaw Sangh.

    Auto-rickshaw owners had submitted a memorandum to transport minister Saurabh Bhardwaj on January 20 but efforts to meet ministers have failed since then. “We feel cheated. They rose from the road with our help and now they are ministers. We are left arguing with their personal secretaries instead,” Soni said. The AAP, Soni added, has backtracked on its manifesto, too. “In their manifesto they had promised to hike fares every time CNG rates go up,” he said.

    The auto-rickshaw owners are also peeved by two decisions of the Kejriwal government. The government has made it compulsory for all auto-rickshaw drivers to attend courtesy classes. If they don’t, fitness certificates for vehicles will not be released. The classes are not free: the government charges Rs 113 per driver. Second, if an auto is impounded, the owner has to pay a fine of Rs 4,500 or the permit will be suspended for a month.

    Anger at Centre, Kejriwal govt

    This will leave a bad taste in the mouth throughout the country and that would be a problem for the AAP, which wants to make a pan India presence in the Parliament.

    Sir,

    1. Shoaib Iqbal and that independent have rolled back their ultimatum.
    2. Auto mahasabha on 7th. CNG prices rolled back as per SC directive to Central Govt. Delhi Govt had filed a case.
    3. No doubt in anyone's mind that Delhi Police is under Shinde, and Shinde is responsible.

    Sir, you have to try harder.

    It is only a matter of time. ;)

    The BJP and Congress are flying kites against Kejriwal's.

    The Congress and BJP want it to make bloomers, and who knows, they are encouraging the same.

    As far as the Nation goes, check the donations coming in or not come in to be more precise!

    Madhu Bhaduri, a founder member has quit.

    The law Minister is in anothes hassle of being a spamster as per the news of yesterday.

    And the media which created Kejriwal is now downright hostile!
