1 TOP 12 LOGICAL REASONS FOR CITIZENS OF DELHI TO VOTE AAM AADMI PARTY TO POWER ON DEC 4, 2013 Created by Pramod Joshi Alumnus IIT-BHU, IIT Kanpur and IIM Bangalore Student, Trainer, Advisor and Consultant, Higher Education

2 WHY THIS PRESENTATION? BECAUSE OFTEN WE INDIANS VOTE IN ELECTIONS ON NARROW, HIGHLY EMOTIONAL, SUBJECTIVE ISSUES OR ON THE BASIS OF A LEADER’S PERSONAL CHARISMA. THE RESULT IS THAT GOVERNANCE SUFFERS! THIS HERE IS LOGICAL, HENCE DESIRABLE. Disclaimer: The author is not an active member of the Aam Aadmi Party, but was an objective witness to the events, of the last 3 years, that shaped its creation. He does not see the party as belonging to any one individual, but as the natural expression of the angst of the common man of India. He identifies with most of the values, tenets and beliefs of AAP. Not all, but most.

3 REASON NUMBER 1  EVEN IF AAP ENDS UP BECOMING AS CORRUPT AS CONGRESS OR BJP IN DUE COURSE, THEY WILL SUFFER FROM THIRD MOVER DISADVANTAGE! IT IS A RISK EMINENTLY WORTH TAKING. LOW RISK!

4 REASON NUMBER 2  AAP HAS SO FAR SHOWN A MORE SCIENTIFIC AND DEMOCRATIC WAY OF SELECTING ITS CANDIDATES, RELYING ON CITIZEN SURVEYS AND BACKGROUND CHECKS. ONE CAN LOGICALLY PREDICT THAT THEY SHALL APPROACH GOVERNANCE ALSO WITH A MORE SCIENTIFIC AND SYSTEMATIC APPROACH. INTERNAL GOVERNANCE!

5 REASON NUMBER 3  THE AAP IS NOT READY TO GOVERN ANYTHING BIGGER THAN THE STATE OF DELHI. AS VOTERS, WE GET A CHANCE TO TEST THEIR METTLE OVER A SMALLER CHALLENGE OF GOVERNANCE. IF THEY SUCCEED, VOTERS SHALL HAVE SOME EVIDENCE TO GIVE THEM BIGGER OPPORTUNITIES, OF RUNNING A LARGER STATE, AND EVENTUALLY THE COUNTRY. IF THEY FAIL, THE DAMAGE IS CONTAINED AND CONTROLLED. LOGICAL? RIGHT SIZE!

6 REASON NUMBER 4  THE AAP WAS NOT BORN WITH A SILVER SPOON IN ITS MOUTH. IT HAS EVOLVED FROM A FIERCE, AND OFTEN DOGMATIC FIGHT AGAINST FORCES OF CORRUPTION SPONSORED BY OR SEATED INSIDE OF POWERFUL GOVERNMENTS. SUCH STRUGGLE NORMALLY BUILDS CHARACTER. IT GIVES THE FIGHTERS AN HONEST ENERGY THAT CARRIES OVER INTO ALL THEIR ENDEAVOURS. THE REAL BATTLE FOR AAP WILL COMMENCE IF AND WHEN IT COMES TO POWER. IT WILL BE BENCHMARKED AGAINST VERY HIGH EXPECTATIONS. THE CONGRESS AND BJP FACE VERY LOW EXPECTATIONS, AND HENCE MAY ONLY DELIVER TO MEET THEM. AAP WILL HAVE TO TRY HARDER TO MEET PEOPLE’S HIGH EXPECTATIONS OF THEM. HIGHER EXPECTATIONS!

7 REASON NUMBER 5  ANY NASCENT ORGANIZATION NEEDS SUPPORT, ALMOST LIKE A BABY DOES. EVEN WITHOUT KNOWING WHETHER THE BABY WILL EVENTUALLY TURN OUT TO BE GOOD OR BAD, OR EVEN BE ABLE TO STAY ALIVE, SUCH SUPPORT IS GIVEN BY DEFAULT, UNLESS THERE ARE PRESSING REASONS TO KILL THE BABY PREMATURELY. NO SUCH REASONS SEEM TO EXIST. RIGHT TO SURVIVE!

8 REASON NUMBER 6  AAP HAS A YOUTHFUL ENERGY AND IS IN TOUCH WITH GEN X, Y AND NEXT. THEY ARE MORE IDEALISTIC AND LESS CYNICAL THAN THE OLD GUARD THAT IS AT THE HELM OF OTHER PARTIES. INDIA’S FUTURE LIES WITH THE YOUNG. THE AVERAGE AGE OF AAP CANDIDATES IS SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER THAN THAT OF OTHER PARTIES. INDIA’S PLACE ON THE WORLD ECONOMIC MAP SHALL DEPEND ON THE WAY ITS YOUNG DEMOGRAPHIC DIVIDEND IS LEVERAGED. THE YOUTH ICONS OF OTHER PARTIES ARE ACTUALLY OLD. RELATIVELY SPEAKING. YOUTHFULNESS!

9 REASON NUMBER 7  AAP HAS DEMONSTRATED VERY GOOD FAMILIARITY WITH MODERN TECHNOLOGY AND GADGETS. IN FACT, THEY SEEM TO THRIVE ON IT. FROM ITS WEB PRESENCE TO COLLECTION OF DONATIONS ONLINE, FROM TRANSPARENT PUBLICATION OF ITS DONORS LIST ONLINE TO AUTOMATED CAMPAIGNS, THE PARTY SEEMS READY TO BRING EFFICIENCY INTO GOVERNMENT WITH APPROPRIATE USE OF TECHNOLOGY. TECHNOLOGY!

10 REASON NUMBER 8  IF ONE HAS BEEN WATCHING TELEVISED DEBATES ON POPULAR MEDIA, THE DEMEANOUR OF AAP SPOKESPERSONS HAS BEEN LARGELY SOBER, PROFESSIONAL AND PARLIAMENTARY. THIS CONTRASTS WITH THE ARROGANT, SUPERCILIOUS AND JINGOISTIC TONE AND TENOR OF OTHER PARTY SPOKESPERSONS. EVEN WHEN PROVOKED, AAP SPOKESPERSONS ANSWER WITH QUIET FIRMNESS, WITHOUT SOUNDING ARROGANT. PROFESSIONALISM!

11 REASON NUMBER 9  AAP LEADERSHIP SEEMS TO COME FROM THE MIDDLE CLASS AND APPEARS CLOSER TO THE GROUND REALITIES OF COMMON INDIANS ON A DAILY BASIS. LEADERS FROM OTHER PARTIES ARE ONLY NOTIONALLY, AND OCASSIONALLY, FOR THE POOR MAN. THEY ARE RICH AND POWERFUL LAWYERS, LANDLORDS, BUSINESSMEN, CONTRACTORS, CRICKET OFFICIALS, PAGE 3 CELEBRITIES. DELHI HAS MORE COMMONERS THAN ELITE CITIZENS AND SHOULD SUPPORT ITSELF. GENUINE COMMONNESS!

12 REASON NUMBER 10  SIX MONTHS BACK, NOT MANY PEOPLE WOULD HAVE GIVEN AAP A GHOST OF A CHANCE IN DELHI. MANY THOUGHT THEIR VOTE WOULD AT BEST BE WASTED, AND AT WORST, AS SOME FEARMONGERS SAID, CUT INTO BJP’S VOTES. TODAY AAP IS IN THE CLEAR RECKONING, AND EVEN IF THEY DO NOT WIN A CLEAR MAJORITY, WOULD MAKE FOR A SOUND, CREDIBLE OPPOSITION. WIN OR LOSE, THEY WIN! SO DO THE PEOPLE OF DELHI. CRITICAL MASS!

13 REASON NUMBER 11  THERE IS A CONCEPT IN ECONOMICS CALLED SIGNALLING. IITs FOR EXAMPLE SIGNAL EXCELLENCE. PRODUCTS & BRANDS SEND SIGNALS TOO - ROLEX SIGNALS LUXURY, AIR INDIA SIGNALS GOVERNMENT INEFFICIENCY AND EMPLOYEE INDIFFERENCE. IF DELHI WERE TO BRING AAP TO POWER, IMAGINE THE SIGNAL INDIAN ELECTORATE WOULD RECEIVE ABOUT ITS OWN POWER, ITS OWN INTEGRITY, ITS OWN WISDOM! AND CORRUPT PARTIES AND POLITICIANS WOULD RECEIVE THEIR CLEAREST SIGNAL – CLEAN UP OR CLEAR OUT. WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU! CLEAR SIGNAL!

14 REASON NUMBER 12  CORRUPTION UNDER OTHER REGIMES HAS BECOME THE NORM RATHER THAN THE EXCEPTION. TAXPAYERS MONEY HAS BEEN BLATANTLY MISUSED, MISAPPROPRIATED AND MISSPENT. CWG, 2G, COALGATE ARE NOT IMAGINARY SCANDALS. THE LAW ABIDING COMMON MAN WANTS TO SEE AN END TO SUCH SHAMELESS, PERSISTENT AND INSTITUTIONALIZED DEBAUCHERY. NO OTHER CREDIBLE, ORGANIZED ANTI- CORRUPTION FORCE IS IN SIGHT. NO HONEST ALTERNATIVE!

15 YOU DO NOT HAVE TO AGREE TO THE ABOVE REASONS. YOU ARE WELCOME TO DO YOUR OWN ANALYSIS. HOWEVER, IF THIS PRESENTATION MAKES LOGICAL SENSE TO YOU, BE GOOD ENOUGH TO CIRCULATE IT WIDELY. SOME DAY, YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN MIGHT THANK YOU FOR YOUR EFFORT IN CHANGING THE COURSE OF INDIA’S HISTORY!
