The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), today, completes 3 years of governance. In 2015, Arvind Kejriwal was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Delhi after a successfully winning 67 out of 70 seats in the state assembly elections.
Here is a quick review of his 3 years of governance:
1. The journey of Arvind Kejriwal as a politician started in 2012, when he launched the Aam Aadmi Party, promising a corruption-free government.
2. But did they achieve their goal? Umm…not really! The party soon caught people’s attention for scams and scandals.
3. As he started campaigning aggressively for elections, he assumed different roles and versions.
4. ‘The city has become a gas chamber,’ says Kejriwal. To combat the air pollution plaguing the state, he implemented the Odd-Even Formula in 2016 for a 15-day trial.
5. As the situation worsened in the years to come his government tried various other ways, from banning firecrackers to hiking the parking rates.
In a nutshell, the party fulfilled several promises by drafting various policies and schemes but at the same time, lack of implementation led to a failure to address critical issues like environmental pollution and poor conditions of the public transportation.
