AAP has a very small window of opportunity to prove itself !

AAP Symbol

I feel, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has decided ‘right’ to form the government in Delhi.

The Aam Aadmi Party, which is winding up its novel approach of an ‘unprecedented’ referendum to decide whether it should explore government formation with ‘outside support’ of Congress, has made the correct move. With the single largest elected party BJP failing to form a government in Delhi, the onus is now on AAP to respect the people’s mandate and deliver on its poll promises. Otherwise, the goodwill it has hitherto generated could evaporate very quickly.

But, Congress party’s support comes with risks. It could keep an AAP government on tenterhooks. But that is a reality of coalition politics which AAP needs to deal with. Should Congress withdraw support at a later date, AAP can always blame Congress party for the failure of the experiment. This would only enhance AAP’s prestige among its core voters and hold the party in good stead in subsequent elections. But shying away from governance would earn AAP the criticism that it is big on talk but little on substance. But the window of opportunity is small, keeping in mind the continuous efforts that will be made by Congress as well as BJP to gain majority stake in Delhi political scenario.
