Not Arvind Kejriwal, Nitish Kumar is only real opposition leader India deserves

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move has exposed the hypocrisy of India’s opposition politicians like never before. Irony is that someone like Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who came to power promising a crackdown on corruption, is now protesting against Centre’s ban on old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes. Not only this, he had earlier even threatened there could be law and order situation if the Centre doesn’t withdraw the demonetisation decision.

In days before demonetisation, Kejriwal had apparently tried his best to create chaos in the national capital over the alleged suicide of former Army veteran Subedar Ram Kishan Grewal and the missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmad. Following the ban on old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes, Kejriwal dumped both the issues. He is now protesting against the note ban. He has even cooked up a scam theory behind the Centre’s demonetisation move.

Today, Kejriwal claimed on Twitter that noteban is a Rs 8 lakh crore “scam” under the guise of patriotism. He appealed to his supporters to oppose the demonetisation “scam”

Kejriwal is a curious case in Indian politics. He cannot take up an issue and fight for it till the logical conclusion. He thrives on making allegations and gets away with ease. For Kejriwal, it seems, politics is all about some minutes of media coverage.

Following Kejriwal’s protest against the alleged suicide of Subedar Grewal, a news article had hailed Kejriwal as the “only real opposition leader” in India. Does India deserve such an opposition leader who cannot pursue any single issue for long?

In contrast to Kejriwal, there is Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar who is consistent with his views and follows matters of public concern like prohibition with conviction. He is opposed to PM Modi ideologically but doesn’t attack him for the sake of it.

Apart from the inconvenience caused to people because of sudden noteban, not a serious counter has come against the merits of demonetisation. Nitish Kumar has acknowledged the merits of the move. During a rally in Madhubani district of Bihar on Wednesday, Kumar emphasised that demonetisation drive was necessary to end the scourge of fake notes and black money.

In a democracy, being in opposition doesn’t give a leader the right to wreck the country. All leaders must be constructive in their opposition to any move by the government, but not at the cost of the country itself. Such politics is certainly beyond Kejriwal’s capacity. Not Kejriwal, but Nitish Kumar is the only real opposition leader India deserves.

    I do not know who is supporting this guy. Are you kidding me that this ban on 500 and 1000 notes will only increase corruption. I am not here to support anyone here but common yaar let's be realistic, let's analysis what mr kejriwal has done in the last one year. i feel bad that some times back i was his supporter now i am not, i am still AAP's supporter but not that of psycho guy any more. Mr Manish is even better guy who is doing good job in his field (education) but this guy has done nothing rather than just talking non-sense, illogical things.

        If AK continues to do his old tricks, he will be out of Indian politics sooner than later. Nitish Kumar's ber is that he opposed Modi and deserted BJP on what he called as principle which cost him heavily. He joined hands with a corrupt person like Lalu. Where was his principle then? However, now he acts rationally and can be taken as far far better than Kejriwal.

          Yes. It is correctly said. Kejriwal and Rahul are immatured in the sense that their comments are just opposing PM moves without any consideration of cost benefit analysis. It appears that their political image will ' grow' only if they object every move of the PM or Govt. Modi has done this demonitisation move without bothering about the political gains but only in the national interest. Poor people, honest tax payers need not worry except of minimum inconvenience. Where there is no queue? Ration, Liquor shop, Cinema, beach, Festival etc.Where there is no dealth due to stampede etc. If everybody sleeping inside the house can death be avoided? All our opposition leaders are just Jokers?

              Haan beta. When Modi opposed UDAI, GST and FDI in retail he was a nationalist. When Arvind provides fact based info it is antinational. ROFL.
