Making Sense of a Newfangled Politics

ASHWIN KV NAMBOODIRI listens to the various panelists at a talk show on the politics and ideology of Aam Aadmi Party and reports.
Politics is a much complex phenomenon and ideologies make them further difficult to analyse. The soul of any political thought sprouts from the spark of fire for a change. Labeling an individual as a good or bad politician would be unfair, in most of the cases. These dilemmas together constituted the positive mileage of SIAS MCJ department’s talk show on ‘Making Sense of Aam Aadmi Party: Politics, Ideology and Future’.
In a global sphere, surrounded by identity politics, discussions happen to fall on to the mainstream as an engaging catalyst of forming variant political manifestos. That was how the panelists and the audience were driven in to the debatable show, moderated by Nisha K,IV Semester MCJ.
The Great Debaters:Panelists of the talkshow
Explaining the sudden set of unanticipated factors which led to the formation of the Aam Admi Party (AAP), Nisha opened the session by enquiring Jamsheel C, Lecturer in MCJ, about the most spotted contribution of present day media in fostering the developmental process of AAP. Jamsheel cited that it is in fact a rare situation of media giving considerable support and attention to a party, which in sense arouse as a contradictory entity to the existing dominant political alliances and that the visual media have played a vital role in reminding us that this is not just the birth of a party, but also a novel political space too, which was in constant demand of time.
Responding to the concept of AAP as an alternative political ideology, Anshif KK, IV Semester MCJ, clarified that, for a party to be called alternative in all respects, it must throw light on social issues or problems which have been steadily neglected or put out of sight of the political discussions, and since AAP is not able to do the same, it can never be called an alternative. He also added that, thinking about AAP, it feels just like an expanded and modified version of that furious mob present in Delhi during the infamous rape incident.
Packed with full energy…

Following Anshif’s strategic realisation, Harris Hudawi, Lecturer in Islamic Studies, expressed his frustration on how AAP, under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal, tactically exploited the current political situation of Delhi as well as India as a whole and how badly it projects its null ideology. Former Chairman of SIAS Students Union Abdul Samad supported the argument by pointing out AAP’s adaptation of concepts like Satyagraha, Swaraj whereas Shibili, I Semester MCJ, resisted the same by upholding the eighteen point agenda of AAP which projects the systematic working style of the party.
Balancing the talk, Fasil, V Semester BCom, suggested the entire audience to review how dedicatedly the so called ‘historical parties’ in India have formed ‘model ideologies’ and ‘corruption-free governance’. Adding oil to the flame, Kamil, Lecturer in History, raised a powerful question: Did any of these ‘great’ parties have a comprehensive ideology and holistic political view at the time of their formation? He stated that AAP is in its infant stage and we should give them more time to grow up in a huge and complex system.
In the complete spirit…
Kamil, Lecturer in History, placing his argument.
While the panelists and some from the audience mocked upon the void promises of AAP which they couldn’t keep till date, Nazrullah, Lecturer in MCJ, pointed out how AAP proves its prospect to become a success in future, by quoting the eighteen point agenda, license issual project etc. Most of them were of the opinion that AAP reflects an inevitable shift from power politics to action oriented politics, based on solid dreams about an egalitarian society.
Breaking the shackles of shameful silence, the session set up for a stressful, informative and interactive one. Every individual shared a deep-felt longing for change, to find a space of their own in the society. Blessing AAP to be a positive concept and an intellectual political alliance in future, the talk show met with a temporary closure for the time being, assuring the continuity for tight and bright political debate to be staged in course of time.
