Chandigarh: Plundered by political parties and hopeless politicians since decades, Punjab is now pinning hopes on the immaculately-clean and visionary politician, Arvind Kejriwal, to change its fate and revive its pristine glory as number one state of India.
None other than Kejriwal himself needs to take command of Punjab to liberate it from the shackles of real-rogues be it from SAD-BJP alliance or from the opposition Congress party.
Certain camps of Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party AAP are trying to project Sucha Singh Chhotepur, Bhagwant Mann and HS Phoolka as claimants for next Punjab Chief Minister. Ironically, none of these leaders have charisma and credibility to sweep the Punjab polls. Instead projection of any one of these leaders as AAP CM candidate would lead to division of votes and thereby create circumstances for the SAD-BJP alliance to remain in power for another five years.
However, this land of brave-heart Punjabis can give a massive and unprecedented mandate of 100 plus seats out of total 117 if a person like Kejriwal owns up the command to become as next Punjab Chief Minister.
The party can work-out a strategy to prepare Munish Sushodiya to take command of Delhi as full-fledged Chief Minister by the time Punjab goes to polls in January 2017, and spare Kejriwal to take command of this border state.
As Delhi has got no status of proper statehood, the land of Sikh Gurus and five rivers can be the apt place for Kejriwal to govern to showcase as model of development to the whole of country.
Punjab is the only state that gave tremendous response to AAP by enabling its four MPs win with consolidate margin during the past Lok Sabha polls.
Kejriwal rules the hearts of Punjabis. NRIs with Punjab background also overwhelmingly love Kejriwal and are ready to fund his election campaign with heaps of Dollars and Pounds.
The party needs to iron out a strategy to spare Kejriwal by mid 2016 exclusively for Punjab. The governance model of Punjab would certainly take him to Prime Minister’s chair!
