It is the well known book written by Arvind Kejriwal after his long research and Experience. Swaraj is the concept of real people democracy which was the dream of Mahatma Gandhi.

Swaraj mean self-governance or “self rule”, but the word refers to Gandhi’s concept for Indian independence from foreign Rule. Swaraj lays stress on governance not by a hierarchical government, but self governance through individuals & community building. Swaraj

The main focus is on political decentralization. Since this is against the political and social systems followed by England, Gandhi’s concept of Swaraj laid stress on India discarding British economic, political, bureaucratic, legal, military, and educational institutions. Iniative by AAP in Delhi is the first step toward real democracy.

    Thank you , Rajdeep Sirdesai !

    Thank you for conducting that brutal interview of Arvind Kejriwal , Saturday evening

    Normally , Arvind is a very reticent fellow

    But you managed to rattle him !

    But for your penetrating questions , Arvind would not have volunteered to reveal on his own , the following :

    > RESERVATION OF 90 % SEATS

    – It is only for 28 colleges which are partially or fully funded by Delhi
    Government

    It is for ANY student ( from any state of India ) , who passes his / her
    10th standard from any Delhi school

    > FREE WATER

    – Only 20KL per month is free

    Our goal is to ” Reduce Consumption / Conserve ”

    Hence it makes sense to charge those who continue to consume more
    than 20 KL .

    If they want FREE , they must cut back on consumption !

    Again it makes lot of Economic Sense , to give water free , only to
    those who have meters

    Lakhs of households will now get motivated to install meters !

    A very powerful incentive

    That will introduce ” Measurement of Resource ”

    > NO WATER IN SLUMS / UNAUTHORISED COLONIES

    – This is a physical problem of laying 150 Km of new pipe-lines /
    installation of pumps etc

    No one asked Congress government re this for 15 years !

    It is totally unfair to expect AAP to do this in 15 days !

    > DIFFERING VIEWS / OPINIONS AMONGST AAP LEADERS

    – This is what democracy is all about !

    We encourage ALL to speak their minds without fear / reservations

    Ideas must flow unhindered

    We believe in brain-storming , not in suppressing views !

    But ,

    PAC members / MLAs / Core Committee Members etc will need to toe the

    FINAL PARTY POSITION ( arrived after fierce internal debate / evaluation /
    consensus ) in public , irrespective of their personal views

    As far as millions of ORDINARY MEMBERS are concerned ( including Capt
    Gopinath / Mallika Sarabhai etc ) , they are at liberty to criticize even the
    FINAL PARTY POSITION

    We impose PARTY DISCIPLINE , only on office bearers

    And since Vinod Binny is our MLA , he is bound by this internal CODE OF
    CONDUCT .

    He must leave the party , if he cannot comply

    > SOMNATH BHARATI TAKING LAW IN OWN HANDS

    – If Delhi police won’t act against drug mafia / sex racketeers , despite a
    pile of complaints from local citizens , then our ministers will come out on
    the streets , in support of the oppressed

    We will not hesitate to join their agitation / revolt against the corrupt !

    Even Mahatma Gandhi , had to break the unjust British Laws

    We will do the same

    If we cannot change the law with the support of our MLAs , then we will
    break it with the support of the suffering public

    Make no mistakes about it !

    > AAP ENGAGING IN ANARCHY / CHAOS / POPULISM

    – Another TV channel editor said , we are continuing ” Activism ”

    Still another TV anchor says , AAP failed to graduate to ” Governance ”

    Use any – and all – adjectives you can , to describe our behavior / actions

    We are not guided / governed by any ” Ideology ” ( Left / Right / Center )

    When we take any decision / action , we only apply ” Gandhi Guideline ” ,

    viz ; ” Will this help the poorest person ? ”

    > AAP TAKING CONGRESS SUPPORT

    – If they like , let them withdraw their ( unasked for ) support today

    Let there be re-elections

    People of Delhi will bring us back with 50 seats

    > CONTESTING LOK DABHA SEAT ?

    – I may , if Party asks me

    [ Arvind ,

    Whereas all the rest of your answers were most appropriate , this was
    the most disappointing !

    If you succumb to the ” wishes ” of your colleagues , not only the
    people of Delhi , but of entire India , will conclude that ,

    # You are an opportunist

    # You are after power

    # You cannot be trusted

    # You have betrayed them ]

    Once again , thank you Rajdeep ,

    But for your grilling , public would have continued to believe the canards being dished out by those pseudo – experts trying to drown out each other , on panel discussions / obsessions !
