I voted "No".
As I see it, there is atleast 1 party that does this : Swaraj India. For me, this is the party that symbolizes all that AAP once stood for, the one I would have supported if India weren't at stake.
Right now,we need consolidation in the Opposition, and not fragmentation ; let all the traditional parties form 1 alliance, and ...
What exactly is the main grouse against AAP ? I feel they've smoothened their idealistic approach with pragmatism which is why many people don't like Kejriwal. What are your views on it ?
For now, let's not discuss specific parties, and instead think what we should broadly do to pull our nation out of the mess we are in.
There are fundamental problems that we need to address as a democracy, one of which I've highlighted above (and proposed a potential solution to).
Let's collectively identify & address them.
What we need is at least one leader who is willing to the public in each constituency. Swaraj India has started this by giving tickets to activists in haryana. They just need to keep raising the voices of the masses for the next 5 years. Keep at it and the people will listen in 2024.
I got a few of my friends to donate to INC as part of #2024Challenge .
However, I am not quite able to get more INC folks to do this, which I think would be very useful for Bihar elections. If INC can get 1 lakh people , that's 20 crore a month. But , ...
..more than the money raised, the hope, energy and momentum will be awesome.
As an AAP supporter, there's only so much I can do ; I tried getting INC leaders/supporters on board, but no traction yet.
Would you and other INC supporters on this thread ...
consider launching an initiative to fund the party?
Small update : our initiative is now on Twitter ; our first target is to raise 1500 committed contributors for each of the participating media orgs (Wire, Scroll, AltNews).
Follow our handle to receive a message on how you can contribute, & spread the word : https://twitter.com/2024Challenge
Update: Progress has been glacial. We are now only at 4 committed revolutionaries, and have a modest target of 40 by Constitution Day.
Join in, if you can.
BTW, why do you think Indians don't invest in ideas, but (generously) open their wallets for people : BabajiKaDhaba, disaster-struck, Saajhe Sapne etc, ?
The INC supporters here have 1 reason less to join the revolution.
