Compromised ‘Gandhian’ Anna should ask AAP to expel Kejriwal due to support to drug trafficking & corruption. By Hem Raj Jain

The name of Mahatma Gandhi (the father of the nation) still appeals to Indians regarding clean (corruption-free) public life. The incumbent BJP came to power in 2014 at Centre mainly due to national anti-corruption movement for Lokpal (ombudsman) led by Anna Hazare (a Gandhian) in 2011-12. This Anna’s movement destroyed the credibility of the then incumbent Government of India (GOI) led by Congress and helped Modi to become Prime Minister of India. Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was the byproduct of this Anna movement.
Anna not only ditched the Indians and called-off this movement [without ‘Jail-bharo’ (filling the prisons) for realizing the demand of Lokpal] but has also compromised on corruption by not highlighting massive corruption of GOI about non-recovery of Rs ~ 1,000 Trillion State-capital through Income-Tax as mentioned at https://www.alwihdainfo.com/Bengaluru-India-Silence-of-Anna-Hazare-on-effective-solution-to-Maharashtra-farmer-s-problems-deafening-and_a54913.html This issue of non-recovery of Income Tax has been raised in Parliament on March 16, 2016 and has also been mentioned at Para 2 page 134 of his recently published book 'Demonetization and the Black Economy' by Professor Arun Kumar and has been mentioned also by Debroy, the senior economist and member of NITI Aayog in the last Para of his article http://indianexpress.com/article/opinion/columns/12-reasons-why-farm-income-tax-policy-outrage-bjp-bibek-debroy-column-4637877/
The Vidhansabha election 2017 in Punjab was contested mainly against drug trafficking & corruption highlighted also by Bollywood movie ‘Udata Punjab’ https://www.huffingtonpost.in/murtaza-ali-khan/udta-punjab-an-eyeopening_b_10514284.html and https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/hindi/bollywood/news/Courts-put-an-end-to-Udta-Punjab-controversy-film-to-be-released-on-Friday/articleshow/52781590.cms
The APP won 2017 election in Punjab for 20 MLAs mainly on the issue of drug trafficking & corruption in Punjab and now Kejriwal (through said apology to Majithia) is saying that there has been no drug trafficking & corruption in Punjab. Hence the Punjab unit of (AAP) including its State President and Member of Parliament (Bhagwant Mann) is angry against its main founder leader, National Convener and Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal because Kejriwal has apologized to Former Punjab Minister Bikram Singh Majithia in a matter related to drug trafficking, as reported in media https://www.hindustantimes.com/punjab/we-were-fighting-the-war-against-drugs-but-our-jarnail-apologised-to-majithia-bhagwant-mann/story-cF8bXD6gfshnLVQgpJhsEI.html
On the other hand Anna has planned to launch another anti-corruption movement from March 23, 2018 as mentioned at https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/my-agitation-wont-give-rise-to-another-kejriwal-anna-hazare/articleshow/62793069.cms
About this immorality and support to corruption & drug trafficking by his protégé Kejariwal, Anna is under moral obligation to publicly condemn Kejriwal and further Anna (instead of bringing bad name to ‘Gandhians’) should publicly ask AAP (also during said agitation of March 23, 2018 by Anna Hazare) to expel Kejriwal from APP.
