Another U-turn From Kiran Bedi’s BJP As Decades Of Promises For Delhi Statehood Are Suddenly Forgotten

For two decades, the Bharatiya Janata Party has sought to give Delhi full statehood. The saffron party was the first to make the demand and confer partial statehood upon the capital in 1992. In 2003, the National Democratic Alliance even introduced a bill in Parliament that aimed to make Delhi a full state. As recently as 2013, the BJP’s election manifesto promised that the “BJP shall continue the struggle for full statehood to Delhi”.

On Tuesday, as the party released its Vision Document for Delhi in lieu of an actual manifesto, the quest for statehood was nowhere to be found.

Exclusive: Bizarre UPA-Era Figures Revealed 70% Of Delhi Used For Organic Farming In 2012 And Records Can't Explain Where 100 Crore Subsidies Gone?

Believe it or not, almost 70 per cent of the national Capital was used for organic farming in 2011-2012, according to National Project on Organic Farming (NPOF), which comes under the Ministry of Agriculture. 

While the total geographical area of Delhi is 1.48 lakh hectares, NPOF data shows 100238.74 hectares (almost twice the size of Mumbai) was used for organic farming during that period. 

What smacks of data fudging and a gigantic scam took place between 2009 and 2012 when the Sheila Dikshit government was in power in Delhi and the Congress-led UPA ruled at the Centre.

Jharkhand Govt Slaps Crackdown On 'Baby Selling Business' After INNLIVE Exposed 'Shocking Trade'

Waking from its slumber, the Jharkhand government has finally launched a crackdown on the illicit baby business that is taking deep roots in the Capital’s underbelly. 

INNLIVE reported that girls and young women — mostly from Jharkhand — were brought to Delhi on the pretext of being employed as helps, then sexually assaulted by the unscrupulous owners and employees of placement agencies and forced to bear babies.

Kejriwal From Political Compromiser To Political Anarchist

By Dr. Subhash Kapila (Guest Writer)

Rather than concentrating on transformation of governance, the much hyped AAP Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, lured by media hype of being a strong factor in 2014 General Elections, has in three weeks degenerated into a “political anarchist” by dumping the dignity of the office of Chief Minister and reverting back to street-side political agitation, unmindful of the dignity of the high office he presently holds.

Focus: AAP’s Political Expansionism In Public Morality Wrap

By M H Ahssan | INNLIVE

INDEPTH COVERAGE The idea of revolution to clean India’s politics may excite only the innocent. Experience tells that in spite of valiant efforts by previous anti-corruption crusaders, such as JP Narayan in 1970s and VP Singh in 1980s, India’s politics did not undergo any substantive change, except for throwing up a new generation of politicians. 

Each time corruption and poverty issues were successfully deployed for the regime change, however, neither the politics of the country nor the state of India’s poor showed any qualitative improvement. Aam Adami Party (AAP) led anti-corruption protests in Delhi too were built around the revolutionary idea of Vyavastha Parivartan whose real life interpretation ended up creating more problems than solving.

Delhi 67% Polls Recorded, Exit Polls Crown AAP Winner

An estimated 67% turnout was recorded on Saturday in the crucial Delhi assembly polls where BJP and AAP were locked in a battle royale, outcome of which may have ramifications on the national political landscape.

"Around 67% polling was recorded. However, we are still yet to get the final figure as voting continued beyond scheduled deadline of 6 PM," Delhi's Chief Electoral Officer Chandra Bhushan Kumar said.

The Great Expectations: Will Aam Aadmi Party's 'Paanch Saal Kejriwal' Election Slogan Becomes Reality?

The sweeping victory for Aam Aadmi Party in the Delhi elections is a reaffirmation of hope for many. The saffron Modi Wave has been pulled down, it has hit the rocks and dispersed into Delhi’s chaotic order. And now comes the real challenge.

Delhi is the capital of this country. It is where the hopes and aspirations of millions of people collide. The culture of Delhi is a complex mix of innumerable cultures from not only neighbouring states and cities, but many distant places as well.

Building Flyovers, Subways Will Not Solve Traffic Problems

With perpetual traffic jams, convoys of smoke-belching trucks, unending construction linked to the Delhi Metro trains and a flyover that had to be shut for repairs only 14 years after it was built, Ashram Chowk represents not only what has gone horribly wrong with Delhi’s traffic but with other cities as well. 

The mention of Ashram Chowk strikes terror in the heart of Delhi commuters. Located in the southeast corner of India’s capital, it is a busy intersection of the city’s two major roads—Ring Road and Mathura Road.

Focus: 'Najafgarh Lake' Wiped Off From The Map As Haryana And Delhi Govts Leave Lake From Records

The future seems to be bleak for the Najafgarh jheel, and it’s all because of governmental apathy. The Delhi government and the Haryana government are apparently not much bothered about the restoration of the lake — a wetland vital for the revival of the water table in Gurgaon and South Delhi. 

While the Delhi government plainly says that the lake does not exist anymore within the boundary of the Capital, the Haryana government is completely indifferent to the matter.

Kejriwal’s Delhi Belly: An AAP Movement In 'Loose Motion'

By Anita Dhillon | Delhi

Several years ago while researching a story about ageing in India, I happened to meet a very feisty senior citizen named Kanta Advani. When I asked her about the problems of ageing I was expecting the usual list – cataracts, knees, loneliness, finances, absent children. But the outspoken Mrs Advani had more pressing issues on her mind. 

“My main problem about getting old is constipation. That is something we discuss quite openly with other people when we meet them. Constipation. Remember that. You will also get it when you are old.” Then she chuckled knowingly.

Did Arvind Kejriwal Met Congress Mediator In Delhi Hotel?

By Suhasi Sikand | Delhi

The Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) leader, Nitin Gadkari, alleged that an industrialist had brokered a deal between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Congress in a post hotel in Delhi to cease chances of BJP coming to power in Delhi.

The Chief Minister of Delhi and AAP leader, Arvind Kejriwal, refused these allegations and asked him to provide evidence.

In a press conference, Kejriwal said, ‘‘This is all rubbish. It is sad to note that a senior leader like Gadkari is talking nonsense. If he is making claims, then he should also give evidence.’’

Gadkari had made these allegations in at the Abhinandan Samaroh in the Talkatora Stadium adding that the government in Delhi is not of the AAP but it belongs to the Congress.

Gadkari’s made his statements hours after Kejriwal was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Delhi at the historic Ramlila Maidan on December 28.

Will 'Big' AAP Win Herald The Birth Of A Populist Modi?

Amit Shah’s son is getting married on February 10 in Gandhinagar. A  lot of BJP leaders would join him for the ceremony. So, whatever happens in Delhi on Tuesday, the BJP chief will have a reason to celebrate.

Otherwise the mood within the party is likely to be sombre if results of the Delhi elections mimic exit polls, which are predicting a huge victory for Arvind Kejriwal and an embarrassing loss for the BJP.

Is Delhi Govt Prejudiced Against Differently-Abled Players?

By Siddhi Sharma | INNLIVE

The Constitution secures to the citizens, including the differently-abled, a right of justice, liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship, equality of status and of opportunity and for the promotion of fraternity. But is this thought meant only to fill up pages of our constitution booklet ? Or does it hold some relevance and truth? Does our nation uphold its constitutional rights?

In an analysis done by INNLIVE, we have come across some shocking revelation . There are lots of voices , unheard. There are lots of sports people, falling in the category of the differently abled, who have made our nation proud, are suffering this bias. In such scenario, do we even have rights to call ourselves a citizen of a nation who believes in equality? When every ounce of the definition has been compromised?

OpEd: Can 'Aam Aadmi Party' Become A National Force?

By Hartosh Singh Bal (Guest Writer)

PRESPECTIVE When the Delhi assembly, amidst the expected uproar, voted 42 to 27 to block the introduction of the Jan Lokpal Bill on 14 February, it signalled the end of the Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal’s volatile seven weeks as chief minister. 

In a characteristic act of showmanship, Kejriwal tried to project the failure as the result of a united effort by the Congress and the BJP to scuttle the AAP’s cherished anti-corruption legislation, and not of his government’s attempt to sidestep constitutional procedure by bringing the bill to the floor without the approval of the central government.

No Water, No Medicine, No Help: Dehydration Kills 35 Inmates Of 'Old-Age Home' As Govt. Become Deaf & Dumb

By Kajol Singh in New Delhi
INNLIVE readers can see in the photo that hungry inmates are having lunch along with a dead body in lying with them and without any care the hungry inmates are eating food which fed to them after three-days. This is the situation in this Old-Age Home in Delhi. And the government is virtually become deaf and dumb over these old orphan people.  

Death lurks here. With the searing heat scorching one and all, the residents in Delhi’s only government-recognised old-age home are dying.

Kejriwal's Speech Is A Mix Of Symbolism And Pragmatism

A mix of symbolism and pragmatic straight talk marked the post swearing in address of Arvind Kejriwal at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi. As the anti-corruption crusader took oath for the second time at the same venue, which hosts the symbolic destruction of ego and arrogance every Dussehra with the burning of the effigy of king Ravana at the hands of Lord Rama every year, he reminded his party colleagues and followers to keep away from both human weaknesses.

The Minimum Leader: The Unravelling Of Arvind Kejriwal


Two years on, it is becoming apparent that Arvind Kejriwal is no breakaway from the typical mould of the politician as deception artist.

Arvind Kejriwal’s resume could be kept concise and hilarious: Underdog Extraordinaire. Arvind Kejriwal, Chief Minister of Delhi, is a politician with an obvious appetite for theatrics, and he deserves admiration for his knack for blurring the line between the reality of his problems with the Narendra Modi Government at the Centre and the tricks of his own house of mirrors in the capital that cast him as a superhero who champions the rights of the common man. What has helped so far, in no small measure, is his projection of himself as the ultimate victim-hero.

Exclusive: Kiran Bedi May 'Loose', Kejriwal May 'Win' Delhi

The BJP has tried all tricks in the book to win Delhi, from announcing regularisation of slum colonies to paradropping Kiran Bedi in the state unit to making political capital of the Obama visit, but nothing seems to be working for it at the moment. 

Not long ago, the consensus among poll observers was that Delhi would be a cake-walk for the party what with its spectacular performance in assembly elections in other states. Only a couple of weeks ago, everyone accepted AAP was a strong challenger but that BJP had the edge with the Congress nowhere in the picture. How things have changed!

Delhi Elections 2015: Why BJP May Not Win Delhi Polls?

It could not have got murkier than this and it could not have been more entertaining. The Delhi election campaign has all the masala associated with a ‘C’ grade Bollywood thriller — gimmicks, midnight exposés, political chicanery and below-the-belt attacks.

If certain poll surveys are to be believed, then the Aam Aadmi Party can easily be expected to cross the magic figure of 36 in the 70-member Delhi Assembly and stake claim to form a government in the city-state.

The Dark & Horrifying Tale Of Delhi's 'Great Baby Bazaar'

A new industry is taking deep roots in the Delhi’s underbelly. This is the great baby bazaar where bidding for a newborn starts the day a hapless woman gets pregnant, while the kid is still in the womb. 

Girls and young women, mostly from Jharkhand, are fodder to this illicit business. They are brought to the national Capital on the pretext of being employed as helps, then raped and sexually assaulted by the unscrupulous owners and employees of placement agencies and forced to bear babies. But that’s not the end of their misery.
