APOLOGY – AKALIS BIG LOSER, CONG TOO
Kejriwal to Majithia, and AAP TO RAAP TO PAAP TO KDV-AAP. Welcome to the party. Feel free please.

Kejriwal to Majithia, and AAP TO RAAP TO PAAP TO KDV-AAP. Welcome to the party. Feel free please.



NO, IT IS NOT a blessing in disguise; this is a blessing so blatant only beat hacks could have missed it. In fact, some Punjab AAP leaders should actually make huge cash contributions to party fund to thank Arvind Kejriwal for this new lease of life.

Notwithstanding the hurried news analysis that the much harried reporters churned out within hours of Arvind Kejriwal dropping a bomb on his own Aam Aadmi Party's Punjab battalion in the form of his meek written apology to Bikram Singh Majithia, and the gleeful presser where Majithia & company claimed vindication, this is the Aam Aadmi Party's best moment in Punjab since its stunning defeat in the last Assembly polls.

The Akalis have bitten far more than they can chew, and Kejriwal's move has decisively finished his hold on his own party unit in Punjab, leaving the state leadership of Sukhpal Singh Khaira, Kanwar Sandhu and others completely free to charter their own path to power in Punjab.

Akali Dal's Sukhbir Singh Badal and Congress' Amarinder Singh now have a much more empowered rival on their hands. The challenge is back, and the chessboard has again tilted decisively. But first, the next few moves.

Khaira and Sandhu moved their first pawns without losing any time by disassociating themselves from the apology. 

Khaira: "We ... have not been consulted on this meek surrender...We promise to continue our tirade on the burning issue of drugs destroying the youth of Punjab.”

---------
Sandhu: "We in Punjab have not been taken into loop...our fight for Punjab continues... I am still facing defamation cases filed by the Punjab cable mafia and will fight to the end.” 

Translation: We hereby consign Kejriwal and the rest of the Delhi leadership of rootless wonders like Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh, Ashish Khaitan & gang to the nearest dustbin.


Dharamvir Gandhi is already a sworn Kejriwal basher. Sucha Singh Chottepur will have a tall glass of cold water with lime juice. Nimbu wala paani pee pee kar kosne ka maza aur effect kuchh aur hee hai.

Besides, there is nothing more piercing and deadly than the added bitterness of old friends.

On the cards: A new, rejuvenated, highly enthused AAP in Punjab with a somewhat different name, a readymade cadre that had been sitting at home wondering when the party come out of the defeat-induced slumber, and bountiful, bubbling energy.

Added super-advantage: Readymade twin targets in the form of Bikram Majithia and Arvind Kejriwal. The old Hind-Punjab Da Yudh is on the cards, the battle lines have been drawn.

Old retired cavalry will be recalled. Bhagwant Mann was late just by a night, and woke up with more clarity on Friday, March 16, and moved equally fast, hitting Kejriwal in the shins with his resignation. 

This is also a moment for the Bains Brothers Inc, which runs the Lok Insaf Party Enterprise, to decide if they want to tow along the big ship or turn into a real fleet of coordinated vessels. The easy camaraderie between Khaira and the Bains Brothers may smoothen things.

The anger in Punjab against the status quo never went away. Amarinder Singh's politics is too aligned with the saffron Narendra Modi line. His own party Congress has not been able to wash its corruption taint, and his on-call friend P Chidambaram is busy defending kin in the Karti scam. His government has sank into the quicksand of corruption allegations, helped amply by Rana Gurjit, and his government has poured too much ridicule on itself with the CM's chopper-borne supervision of Punjab.

The loan waiver tamashas from huge stages in Punjab, headlined by singers like Gurdas Mann and Master Salim who are paid lakhs from the taxes people pay, have only ensured that the space for the third force remains well established.

As for the Akali Dal, it has Bikram Majithia and the issue of drugs back in the forefront, bang at the middle of politics. So, Punjab politics has been rewinded to where it stood just before the Assembly elections, a feat that AAP leaders of Punjab would not have achieved on their own but this time they had help from Majithia and Kejriwal, combined. 

So eerily similar is the political scenario to the pre-2017 poll time that even an election is around the corner, timed damn well for this unshackled force. 2019 is staring in the face, and it may as well happen even in 2018.

Every mistake that AAP made has now become a mistake of the Kejriwal coterie, every blunder that AAP made a blunder foisted upon Punjab unit. Suddenly, Punjab's AAP has pressed the Refresh button, and people are already ready to press Ctrl^Alt^Del on old politics.

Dr Dharamvir Gandhi has expressed his worry that AAP workers "will be the target of political vendetta" now, but that is exactly what Punjab's AAP leaders will hope the Congress or Akali Dal go in for. Nothing enthuses a party like vendetta. Kejriwal rose from the ashes of utter disappointment with the system.

In Punjab, the AAP just got rid of its own 'system'. "The Akali Dal and the Congress are in cahoots" idiom only gained further strength in the first one year of the Amarinder government. They became the 'system', and who has ever not been tempted to give a clarion call to the unwashed hordes to come out and dethrone the system.

All it needs is a new name? "AAP Punjab"? AAPP? "Real AAP"? RAAP? Punjab AAP? PAAP? Kadh Diyange Vatt AAP? KDVAAP? 

Feel free, please. Everyone is feeling the same. Free. So free. And Kejriwal hasn't got the time or the energy to file a defamation case. Ask Majithia.
