PM Modi and Akhilesh show that in a game of men, there is no place for boys like Arvind Kejriwal

Winston Churchill once said, "success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm," a lesson that Mr Kejriwal has to learn otherwise there is no place for boys like him in a game of men that already has masters like Narendra Modi and Akhilesh Yadav.

On Sunday afternoon, all eyes were on Yogi Adityanath who took oath as the new Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. At one moment, it looked like no one take the spotlight away from him in a grand ceremony that had many big faces like Amit Shah and Mulayam Singh Yadav. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Akhilesh Yadav produced a special moment exactly when it was least expected, leaving people in their awe. Before leaving the stage, PM Modi hugged Mulayam Singh Yadav and gave a pat on Akhilesh’s back. The former UP Chief Minister also obliged and smiled in response. It was a perfect example of statesmanship by both the leaders and showed that somewhere Indian democracy has matured.

Watch PM Modi interact with Mulayam Singh Yadav after Yogi Adityanath’s swearing-in ceremony:

About maturity, let’s talk about Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who comes from the Indian Institue of Technology, which is one of the prime educational institutes in India. His party didn’t do well in the recent state assembly elections. The counting of votes on 11th March revealed that AAP won only 20 seats in Punjab which was 57 less than Congress that emerged as the single largest party and outcome in Goa was even worse.

In response, Kejriwal took to Twitter to accept his defeat and on 11th March itself said that he accepts people’s mandate. While for other leaders it was the end of all drama, for Kejriwal the real fun began. Since that day, the Delhi Chief Minister has posted or re-tweeted 19 tweets out of which 2 were to wish Holi and Chetichand respectively. Three of his tweets talked about the works done by Aam Aadmi Party but 13 of them aimed at how EVMs were or could be hacked by a party to win elections.

It is perfectly okay to question the voting procedure as a possibility of hacking these machines cannot be ruled out but there is a proper way and procedure for that. Posting this on social media platform ‘repeatedly’ only shows his frustration and desperation. It reminds of those school going teenagers who keep posting about their life problems on social media platforms just to seek attention even though they know that it isn’t going to make things better.

Nitin Gadkari believes Yogi Adityanath is a true nationalist:

Akhilesh Yadav’s loss in numbers was more humiliating than that of Arvind Kejriwal. His party was reduced to mere 47 seats from 224 in 2012 assembly elections and yet he came out smiling in the press conference and accepted the loss. He happily attended the swearing-in ceremony of Yogi Adityanath and was seen sharing laughter with senior BJP leaders like Ravi Shankar Prasad and Keshav Prasad Maurya.

When PM Modi shook hands with him both the leaders were smiling. Their admiration and respect for each other were visible, something that is almost impossible to imagine in the case of Arvind Kejriwal. Winston Churchill once said, “success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm,” a lesson that Mr Kejriwal has to learn otherwise there is no place for boys like him in a game of men that already has masters like Narendra Modi and Akhilesh Yadav.

    Do you remember the Delhi result .AAP got 67 out of 70.Who is the baacha!Remember this was a new party. Even in election ,Congress came ahead in 3 out of 5 states.So where is this wave? Are we to believe that moodi was beaten by a dead party,as claimed by certain spokespersons.

      It is surprising that this mutal admiration between maulaym and moodi is not visible during elections.At that time insults and derogatory remarks are traded.This has become the hallmark of baajpa politics which doesn't talk about issues but goes around trading insultsfact issues are not at the forefront.Now after all this talk of vikas baajpa has installed Yogi,who is a maverick and uncontrollable.He will further ruin the communal balance.A person who goes around making inflammotary statements should not have been given this important post.

                  If Maturity is bending and crawling due to fear or for favor then this report is correct, People who are corrupt will be together all times because they know if one gets exposed others too will get exposed, so the bonhomie needs to be maintained at all cost. Kejriwal is the only politician in this country with a spine who would call a spade and a spade and is not fearful of speaking his mind unlike other corrupt politicians.

                    Can we expect such gesture from AK? I am not, the language he uses on Modi shows he loves only winning and loosing makes him loose his mind.

                      Burning inside and showing a smile is not maturity but hypocrisy instead. Kejriwal will never ever stoop down such level and he will never join hands with Modi or the list of corrupt parties like BJP, CONG, ETC., ETC.,

                        People like you who know nothing start commenting. Just check your facts. Mr. Kejriwal was officer in income tax department till he retired when he took to politics. But nowadays in Bharat people just believe anything satya and ahimsa is dumped in sea.

                            BJP ddnt complain this time either, Neither wen they lost Bihar. They just accepted the mandate and moved on gracefully. Unlike AK who blames EVM for his failure. Ur question is funny, but tell me y shud BJP complain abt EVM when they realised the people chose AAP over them and y cant AK realise the ppl chose Congress over them and accept it gracefully

                                            Can a right be compared with wrong . Why you wash your hand with soap why not with mud like a traditional man in villages . Can there be ever a combination of good and bad together like Both Korea and USA . Why world is afraid of ISIS why not all good people shake hand with them are they not men . Two bad man can can be comfortable together but two one good and one bad can never be comfortable so I disagree with what you wanted to preach . It's like trying to earn money by praising bad as they are in government and discouraging good like an opportunist .
