I usually avoid politics. I am not a fan of either Congress or BJP, though I have heard Narendra Modi speak live during my convocation and was impressed by his oratory skills.
Now is the AAP wave which has taken the Indian politics by storm. I was super impressed with their win in Delhi and thought here is a party which will change India, until the usual problems cropped up. You know like RD always quotes ‘when three people come together, there is politics’
Here are a few things I feel AAP should do
1. Get a management consultant who can draw a long term plan for their party. They have 1000s of ideas, but to put them in place and get them to implement them is going to require an expert. Rather than going with the tried and tested but never successful coalition with the political parties, they should appoint a proper consultant who will tell them which of their ideas are feasible and which can be successful in how many years.
2. STOP trying to satisfy everyone. Its impossible that all will be happy with what they do, but they really should prioritize on what they promised instead of just doing what everyone is saying
3. With so many people (1 crore???) joining AAP, they should really try and use a data entry and analysis company to do data entry of all the people who joined them. Make an excel sheet, sort out the people by city, by age, by educational background etc, and find out an ideal mix of candidates they think can form a part of their core committee and of course, since they are doing so much analysis, they should also try and get the market research company to find out if any of the candidates have any criminal records and stuff. This will help them find out the great candidates for the LokSabha elections whenever they plan to get into it
4. Get a proper leader. Kejriwal has a lot of vision, but he seems to lack confidence in leading a party which is ready to take India by storm..may be Kejriwal can continue as a leader, but they need a strong core committee which weeds out unnecessary elements looking for their two seconds of fame and speaking all nonsense
Any thoughts on this?
PS – No, I am not joining AAP. I am an analyst by profession, I only show the path, never actually do the real work eh? 😉
