Lok Sabha Elections 2014: Varanasi set for epic battle as Arvind Kejriwal comes calling

kejriwal-modi2

Varanasi, March 24: AAP star Arvind Kejriwal arrives here Tuesday to kickstart an epic Lok Sabha battle that his supporters say will surely “humble” BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

As a morning train brings Kejriwal into this ancient city on the banks of the Ganges, around 350 young men and women spread out in Varanasi are planning a “phaadu debut” (rocking debut) for their leader.

This team of 25-something is busy tailoring a locally-flavoured winning strategy which they say will “humble” Modi when the Hindu holy city votes for its next Lok Sabha representative May 12.

And as they speak of a “99 percent surety” of the former Delhi chief minister taking on the BJP heavyweight, they say confidently that the AAP leader will preside over the BJP’s political waterloo.

There is a team of volunteers led by Saman Qureshi from New Delhi which is holding 20-minute ‘nukkad nataks’, largely near the Beniyabagh ground where Kejriwal will hold his rally Tuesday.

Saman, a niece of former chief election commissioner S.Y. Qureshi, told IANS that by Monday evening they would have completed 150 street skits in just 10 days.

“Through these skits we tell people about the value of electing the right candidate and take up the cause of the anti-corruption movement. We stress that their vote can make all the difference,” she said.

Other volunteers in the ‘nukkad natak’ group come from Allahabad, Varanasi and Lucknow.

A former income tax officer-turned-activist-turned-politician, Kejriwal is likely to hold a ‘referendum’ at the rally Tuesday seeking people’s approval for his decision to take on Modi.

The die, however, has been cast and it is just a matter of a formal announcement, said an insider in the Aam Aadmi Party team.

For the 350-odd volunteers now in Varanasi who depend on complimentary accommodation and food from locals, it is time to get cracking.

Vaibhav Maheshwari, who handles the media for the AAP in Uttar Pradesh, says the Kejriwal-Modi battle will not be just symbolism.

Leaving a fledgling IT business in Lucknow and an angry wife who has to handle two kids and home all by herself in his absence, the 38-year-old Maheshwari says that the outcome of the Modi-Kejriwal contest would be a watershed — and stunning.

He points to two types of people in the temple town — the elite and erudite rooting for Modi and a big chunk of have not’s who see Kejriwal as a beacon of hope.

“We have taken up issues like poor drainage, law and order, unplanned city planning, corruption, non-performance of past BJP representatives in the Lok Sabha, assembly and the municipal corporation for the present mess as the theme in our bulk mailers and social media discourse,” says Aniket Saxena of Lucknow.

A one-of-its-kind ‘Buzz’ campaign is also underway in Varanasi.

In this, volunteers, as they explained to IANS, stand at important interactions and busy thoroughfares, for two hours, carrying banners with slogans favouring AAP.

They neither speak nor interact with anyone but just attract the attention of commuters.

Nandan Mishra, an IIT-Kanpur alumni who left a lucrative Citibank job to be “in the thick of things” with AAP, leads the ‘Play for Change’ – a music group which plays oldies like ‘Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram’ and ‘Hum Honge Kamyaab’ (We Shall Overcome) tunes in the narrow lanes.

This group plays music on violin and guitar and does not speak to people. A team following them distributes pamphlets and literature of AAP.

Ujjwal Modi, a chartered accountant from Jhansi who keeps a tab on the AAP’s election expenditure, finds Varanasi “all geared up with their soul and purse” for the party.

“People here are not only generous but politically very aware,” he says, while admitting the party’s shoestring budget.

Party sources say Kejriwal, soon after reaching Varanasi, will drive to the Kaal Bhairav temple. Bhairav is the ‘shahr kotwal’ (city inspector), and everyone seek his blessings before a new venture.

Kejriwal will then visit the Kashi Vishwanath temple, perhaps the city’s best known temple.

He will interact with morning walkers at some parks, besides calling on retired academics and current professors at the Banaras Hindu University.

For the former chief minister of Delhi, battle Varanasi will be no less than an epic battle.

  • http://nuclearsupremacyforindiaoverus.blogspot.com Satish Chandra

    You can only chant Har Har Satish Chandra because Satish Chandra is an Avatar of Shiva.

    A professor of philosophy at New York’s Baruch College once sat down opposite me in Au Bon Pain café in Harvard Square and the first words he said to me were “Maybe you are an Avatar”. Was there something so extra-ordinary in my appearance that made him say that? Others have said similar things. In view of the paragraph below, what they say seems to have some merit. Let us take what they say seriously. Let the word go out that Satish Chandra is an Avatar (Incarnation) and India’s legitimate ruler. Let the Congress, BJP and AAP match that! (Jan 9 ‘14) A couple hours after I sent the above, a post on Bharat-Rakshak said “There is indeed a God looking after India”. Well, you have to obey God, sing his praises and celebrate the life of an Avatar. This Avatar has already said that Americans deserve to be killed as ruthlessly as fecal bacteria; you are yet to arrest American consular staff — and ambassador — who helped someone with criminal charges against him flee Indian justice. There is an absolute ban on Bharat-Rakshak against taking the name of this Avatar or singing his praises. This is no way to win God’s favor./ Immediately upon my reference to arresting the American ambassador, the Americans gave diplomatic immunity to the Indian diplomat and let her fly home the same day (Jan 9 ‘14). Now let us deal with the Americans’ crimes against this Avatar (paragraph below).

    The United States has successfully delayed by about thirty years the development of India’s cryogenic engine — a tiny example of incomparably greater sabotage: “”India’s greatest scientist and greatest living Indian publicly tortured in Harvard seminar, systematically and totally starved for up to 3 weeks at a time, made semi-starved and homeless and even blind for years, kept under 24-hour audio and video surveillance as well as surveillance of [and interference with] communications and electrical typewriter and computer use, document creation and photocopying, etc., by satellite for more than past 3 decades, systematically harassed and in poverty and neutralised and robbed of his work at the cost of hundreds of millions of dollars per year, robbed of crores in his money and property in India by C.I.A.-RAW, forced back into exile in the U.S., all with full cooperation and participation of India’s RAW and India’s C.I.A.-RAW-controlled prime ministers, politicians and media — to keep India poor, weak and enslaved” and how this means the nuclear destruction of New Delhi and then the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States; see my blog titled ‘Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.’ which can be found by a Yahoo/Google search with the title; my biography can be found in Marquis’ Who’s Who in the World, 2014 and earlier editions.” One nuclear explosion on Ramlila Grounds where the uninformed masses gather by the hundreds of thousands at the rallies of Kejriwal, Modi, etc. will take care of their popular support but, instead, one nuclear explosion on RAW headquarters and one on South Block – North Block will destroy traitors, including Kejriwal, sponsored by CIA-RAW while it suppresses Satish Chandra who can make India the supreme military and economic power in the world immediately by destroying Washington and New York simultaneously with RAW headquarters, South Block and North Block with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation; his proposal about money will make India the most prosperous nation in the world within about ten years but it will be militarily dominant immediately on the destruction of Washington and New York and will be able to dictate in economic matters also immediately on the destruction of Washington and New York such as by having Americans work as slave labor for India — although the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States will take precedence over having Americans work as slave labor; I have shown that Americans deserve to be killed as ruthlessly as fecal bacteria. With its nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington, New York and other U.S. cities, India has the means right now to make all U.S. presidents — past and present — present themselves in India to be whipped and hanged, by warning that Washington and New York will be destroyed if the U.S. fails to obey and additional U.S. cities will be destroyed if there is any retaliation. Filthy niggers of the Indian government such as the Commerce and Industry Minister and the Foreign Minister insist on putting “the extremely valuable partnership” with the United States above all else; they have a partnership with the United States in raping Mother India — they pull apart and hold open the entrances to the cavities of Mother India which the United States then rapes. They deserve death even more than Ratan Tata about whom I wrote: “Ratan Tata should be whipped and hanged for giving $50 million to Harvard University where the world’s greatest scientist was publicly tortured for being an Indian and to keep India poor, weak and enslaved”. I have described — IndiasLegitimateRulerSatishChandraDOTblogspotDOTcom — the war waged with the help of 24-hour satellite surveillance for the past 37 years against the only Indian who is an obstacle to the Americans’ rape of India.

    Arun Jaitley, “with five families of relatives to visit between Washington and New York”, has no business being an Indian legislator. On having his son hired by the Washington Post, becoming a servant of India’s enemies, Shashi Tharoor tweeted himself a “very proud father” but was not thrown out of the Cabinet for this. The deaths of Rajiv and Indira did not matter, only the crimes against Satish Chandra matter. Both participated in the CIA’s crimes against me and both were killed by CIA-RAW because of my influence on them. I was the target in killing them; they themselves did not matter. Nehru was a lifelong British agent, Indira and Rajiv worked for the CIA and so do all Indian politicians and filthy criminals of the media, deserving to be machine-gunned and bulldozed into trenches, or the top dozen or so stories in the Indian media on any given day will be about Satish Chandra. To avoid being killed by CIA-RAW, Rajiv’s son now (on Feb 26 ‘14) made an incredibly stupid and treasonous statement “What superpower? I will rather make a woman safe in a bus” to show to CIA-RAW that he is NOT under my influence and will not entertain any thought of making India a superpower and will keep India poor, weak and enslaved. Narendra Modi should be whipped and hanged for giving a bouquet of roses to an American diplomat in exchange for a strip search and cavity search of an Indian diplomat. After my reference to Advani as Home Minister being forced, with the threat of being prosecuted for Babri Masjid demolition, to visit CIA headquarters and make the Home Ministry participate in the CIA’s crimes against me, CIA-RAW threatened Modi with prosecution for the killing of Muslims in 2002 and so today (Feb 27 ‘14) “Modi signals shift in favour of big retail”, that is Walmart, etc., reversing the BJP’s stand — while acknowledging this will harm him politically — and urging Indians to embrace foreign ownership and control of India and other BJP politicians, such as Arun Jaitley, have joined in this treasonous deal with CIA-RAW; CIA-RAW dictates — with the threat of killing in the case of Rajiv’s son and threat of prosecution in the case of Modi — what Indian politicians do and say, not India’s or the politicians’ own interests. P. Chidambaram should be whipped and hanged for speaking positively about Harvard University where the world’s greatest scientist and greatest Indian of all time was publicly tortured for being an Indian. The Italian woman and son should be whipped and hanged for participating in crimes against him with the help of the CIA’s 24-hour satellite surveillance of him for the past 37 years. Arvind Kejriwal and Mamata Banerjee should be whipped and hanged for associating with CIA-RAW agent Hazare, a follower of M. K. Gandhi who was a lifelong British agent and a homosexual who wrote to his white master “How completely you have taken possession of my body; it is slavery with a vengeance”. You do not shake hands with any representative of a country whose population will be made to eat one another till no one remains alive. Filthy niggers Manmohan Singh, P. Chidambaram and Raghuram Rajan made India a beggar and slave at the G-20 urging “advanced nations, like the US, to take heed of countries vulnerable to the stimulus withdrawal” and “advanced nations must recognise the impact of their monetary policy decisions on other economies and “be prepared to act if things get out of kilter” “. Why? Because “The reduction in stimulus, known as tapering, may affect capital flows to emerging markets and impact their currencies”. Why do you want to give ownership and control of India to foreign enemies when India has all the investment capital it wants by simply printing the money which is what the U.S. is doing stealing my proposal about money — see ‘How India’s Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year or More’ : HowIndiasEconomyCanGrowDOTblogspotDOTcom ? These filthy niggers Manmohan Singh and Raghuram Rajan must also be whipped and hanged along with filthy niggers Amartya Sen, Subramanian Swamy — who were both brought to Harvard and one of them given a Nobel prize expressly to provide cover for the crimes against me — and anyone else in public life you can think of. It is not too late to whip and hang filthy niggers Vajpayee and George Fernandes both of whom have been faking illness and an inability to speak to avoid answering questions about their participation in the CIA’s crimes against me. Nor is it too late to whip and hang filthy nigger Ram Jethmalani, who was also brought to Harvard to provide cover for crimes against me and rewarded with a half a million dollar per year law practice and filthy nigger L. K Advani who, while Home Minister, was brought, under pain of being prosecuted for the Babri Masjid demolition, to C.I.A. Headquarters to make India’s Home Ministry a participant in the C.I.A.’s crimes against me. Filthy nigger Kejriwal wants to provide a few services at lower rates but my proposal about money shows how to provide all goods and services free of charge to everyone. Filthy nigger M. Karunanidhi should be whipped and hanged; he was having Indian currency printed in China with the help of the Reserve Bank of India chief to provide some freebies to the people of Tamil Nadu as I described in my press releases but kept the crimes against me covered up otherwise everything could be provided free of charge to everyone in India. Filthy nigger Jayalalitha should be whipped and hanged for saying she has a vision for India but keeping quiet about the crimes against me because of which India will remain poor, weak and enslaved despite her vision. The filthy niggers that are India’s Supreme Court judges should be whipped and hanged for participating in CIA-RAW’s crimes against me and India by claiming to have lost the papers of a lawsuit I filed after duly acknowledging it as a front page lead report in New York’s News India-Times described two decades ago. I have described RAW’s trafficking of Indian children to Israel to be used as food — RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom — and said that “The Jews’ fondness for human flesh is far easier sated on Indians than on those around them. Thousands of missing children from India end up in Israeli kitchens and it costs them less than goat meat … When the Congress Party president and her son spent a number of days in Switzerland recently [in 2011] taking care of their black money there, they were told in no uncertain terms by the Jewish bankers that their ability to keep their black money hidden depended on the continuation of the trafficking of Indians for food. Both the Congress Party president and her son had to partake of such food with their bankers to seal the agreement”. I have also described the torture and killing of the children so their skins can be made into shoes and handbags. The above state of affairs cannot be changed except by India’s nuclear forces simultaneously destroying Washington, New York, RAW headquarters, South Block and North Block which they must do without delay, with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed, with nuclear warheads already emplaced in them, if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. It is important for Pakistan’s media to inform the world about this so no one will think the nuclear explosions in New Delhi were caused by Pakistan and for Russian media to inform the world about this so no one will think the nuclear explosions in Washington and New York were caused by Russia. Regardless of what Pakistan and Russia do, India’s nuclear forces are putting India in grave danger and committing suicide by not obeying Satish Chandra and triggering the warheads. Russia and the U.S. can destroy the other but will be destroyed in return but India can destroy the U.S. without being destroyed.

    AAP should win against bjp and congress. How irresponsible being CM was not responsible for Massacre by Hindu Radicals. Hitler have no place for Political System. Media should act as fair and independently and not as Car Driver. AAP will win in majority against corruption / communal people.

    kuch kahana bekaar lagta hai
    jab log bahut samazhdaar dikhatein hai khud
    ko per hon itney nasamazh …ye unki bhi galti nahi hai kyonki
    jo log pachason saal aisey jeetey aaye hain
    unhey aadat ho gayi hai..
    unmein himmat to aaye per aadat kaisey jaaye
    atleast kj has given us one thing
    respect yourself first
    agar mera neta khud ko special nahi manta
    agar wo meri problem samazh raha hai
    to muzhey bhi uski pareshani samazhney ki Koshish jaroor
    karni chahiye……
    jinko tuney 10 10 15 15 saal diye tu thaka nahi
    per yahan tu itni jaldi thak gaya
    mein ney toh sirf rukh badala tha ki tuzhey badey tufaan se bachaa loon
    par tu toh mera haath hi chor ke chal diya naye rastey k dar se

    Arvind Kejriwal was a great hope…but he proved himself to be a great failure in Delhi.. now voting for him will be just strengthening congress…

  • skm

    There is a misconcept…that all other parties than BJP are secular….. which is not true…

  • Subrat kumar mohapatra

    Bring modi and save country and send AK 49 to pakistan to join lashkar toyeba with hafeez said.

  • Kamalkanti Nandi

    AK 49 is a cheat that failed the hopes of Delhi voters. AK 49 is widely hailed in Pakistan as their man in India after AAP leader Prashant Bhushan publicly declared that Kashmir be given away to Pakistan. In the domestic front, AK’s party has the single motive to create only anarchy and weaken India making it the worst nation vulnerable to enemy attacks. Congress fielded this B-team and thus a vote for AAP is actually a vote for the corrupt and a 60 year old failure called Congress! ==Kamal
