Indubitably, the anti-corruption fights by AAP should be appreciated. And they also have a great zeal to work towards people and their welfare. Now the question is; are they using the correct strategies for it? I would say, a big NO!
AAP is a party that strictly follows a socialistic manifesto. Socialistic believes have never taken a country to heights in history, but have destroyed many. But then, Congress is the father of socialist parties in India, as Indira Gandhi brought the word ‘socialist’ in the constitution, and Nehru was a strict socialist believer who took us to the USSR. And these are the two key incidents, why India is still a ‘developing country’.
In fact, AAP is following the same manifesto of equality and subsidies, which is going to suspend the freedom of entrepreneurs or the tax payers. The Kejriwal government may give everything free. And of course, people will stay with those who give everything for free. It is very plausible for a democratic government to give away for free. But let me honestly ask, from where are they going to give all of this for free? Does the government get water and electricity for free, so that they can distribute it to the society for free or at subsidised rates? Certainly not, the government or the consumers have to pay for it. So, the burden to pay has passed to the earning class, may be as a newly termed tax or as a big rise in the price of some other commodity. That is, when a society receives subsidies. They unknowingly pay more than what they got for free in some other way. This is “Economics”. I don’t think AAP has any idea about building the economy, but they play well in politics.
We should understand ”The is no Free Lunch”.
Yeah, we are delighted to see a corruption-free India. But what if the corruption-free India is bankrupt? Certainly, all their policies have a populistic effect. But it will never have a long term result. I am yet to see anything in the AAP manifesto that adhere to sound economics, something that’s very essential in forming a liberal government and a rich society.
“Since there is no rational justification for the sacrifice of some men to others, there is no objective criterion by which such a sacrifice can be guided in practice. All “public interest” legislation (and any distribution of money taken by force from some men for the unearned benefit of others) comes down ultimately to the grant of an undefined, undefinable, non-objective, arbitrary power to some government officials. The worst aspect of it is not that such a power can be used dishonestly, but that it cannot be used honestly.” – Ayn Rand.
If we need India to develop, I am no more sure if AAP (the so called “altruistic”) is the right one to pursue. And definitely, not the UPA Congress, who sounds as an oxymoron to socialism. It can not be BJP, which follows business economics and is inverting India’s development.
