Understandably perception is growing of it being the undercover incognito B team of the BJP with some naïve altar boys drafted in the usual saffron shrewd style to split the anti-BJP secular votes. The background and also lineage of some of the members of this outfit will expose the true colours of these power-thirsty hounds.
Today, politics which was meant to be a mission is sadly no longer a straight forward sincere game. It has become a business venture paying very high dividends. Despite the Election Commission’s all out efforts, the political chess board has become as curved, curled and crooked as it can get. The common man should therefore be very cautious and vigilant. Look beyond the curtains and read between the lines while sniffing the political broth that is cooking.
In Goa, we have witnessed some of our MLA’s and MPs of the 60’s and the 70’s languish and die as paupers. Over the last three decades however, their breed across party lines has morphed from rags to riches.

Anna Hazare wears the Gandhi cap at all times. In contrast some of these AAP decoys seem to be wearing it only to draw public glare. We even see Arvind Kejriwal now wearing that cap less frequently. Is it because they are indeed more comfortable with the saffron scarf? With the very crucial Lok Sabha elections just round the corner the hidden agenda will soon be all out in the open. While the broom may sweep out some of the old timers, the other end may soon be used to whip the common man.
