February 16, 2015 | By

New Delhi: It may sound strange to many, but it’s true that the Hindutva fountain-head Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) mouthpiece The Organizer has accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for being “communal”. As per The Organizer Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is a “new version” of “communal politics in the name of secularism”. RSS mouthpiece’s latest issue covers Delhi Assembly election results as “cover story” title: “Land slide victory uphill tasks”.

The Organizer maintains that After Kejriwal’s victory, many theories and analyses are coming up, still there are many questions that are unexplored. In answer to one such self-posed question: “Is AAP a new version of communal politics in the name of secularism?”, the Hindutva mouthpiece says: “In Delhi, yes. One important aspect from Delhi Assembly poll is the voting of minorities particularly of Muslims for the AAP. But AAP is not the natural choice for voting of Muslims”.

“In Delhi Muslims voted for AAP as the Congress Party was not in the race against BJP. So in order to defeat the BJP the Muslims have voted for AAP”, notes the Organizer, while adding that “It may not be true in states like Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal etc where they have a option of other leaders”.

RSS’ mouthpiece says “Kejriwal used all opportunities to project himself as a ‘secular’ leader and polarised communal environment in the best possible manner for himself. From Batla House to mysterious attacks on Church, all incidents were used to create phobia among minorities”.

It also claimed that AAP was indulged in selling it’s “freebie” agenda and people of Delhi chose to experiment this “freebie” agenda.

RSS says that Delhi results were not a mandate on Modi government.
Is BJP’s loss a mandate on Modi Government?
Not really, simply because Delhi elections were fought on a totally different plank. People of Delhi voted more on municipal issues rather than national issues. The same Delhites voted for Modi as PM eight months back. It is more of a vote of Kejriwal as a CM rather than against Modi government. Many organisational, strategic and tactical issues were involved in this election. The history of Delhi elections show that whenever BJP fought in a triangular fight, it was in advantageous position. This time neither Congress nor BSP could retain that third pole, which resulted into BJP’s loss. This is to do more with arithmetic of first post past system rather than mandate for Modi government. The only concern for BJP is though it has retained its around 33% vote share, 13% additional votes it had garnered during Lok Sabha elections could not be retained.“, notes the Organizer.

The BJP’s crushing defeat in Delhi has left the Hindutva bodies, BJP, RSS and it’s affiliates, stunned as BJP was able to win only 2 seats in 70 strong state assembly.
