Kejriwal cutting a sorry figure


It is very easy to preach people about corruption and its implication but when his party men indulge in such practises it is very difficult to manage the party affairs as a Chief Minister. Kejriwal is such a predicament and he is not in a position to utter words about his own Principal secretary. Having advocated the ill effects of corruption and promising to bring the culprits to law books, now Kejriwal is sailing in the same boat and it is a bad news for the people’s party.  Now the ball is in the Delhi CM’s court and he will have to play with a straight bat instead of just defending his own men blindly. The recent arrest triggers a fresh showdown between the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the BJP led government at the centre. Even though both the CM and the Principal secretary are the alumnus of IIT Kharagpur and hence his pet man in trouble will not be an encouraging news for him. Kejriwal is cutting a sorry figure now.
