One aam aadmi Alok Tiwari ran into "AAP ka Ashutosh" at an airport, asked him a few hard questions, over pleasantries, on shrill drama that AAP serves on a daily basis, left Ashutosh tongue-tied. Alok Tiwari later shared his experience on social media*. This is how it followed,
Just to kill time after initial pleasantries exchanged when topic came to AAP and I took him on several issues, from Sheila Dixit to Batala House to stroking Khalistan fire in Punjab to Modi ji wants to kill me, he quickly switched to petrol prices not reduced by Modi to favor Ambani.
When I gave him figures of old petroleum subsidy burden which has to be paid, and who will and when pay it, he started craning his neck looking for his car.
While shaking hands before leaving when I said "Ashutosh, Gujarat is not Delhi or Punjab. Don't manufacture Dalit issue to fish in troubled water," looks on his face was a give away.
He had probably come to attend some Dalit rally to show AAP solidarity with them to create Gujarat election issue.
Though, I knew about Ashutosh's English "acumen" but was still surprised to find that an ex- News editor of a leading TV channel was unable to carry his arguments with any conviction.
Anyways it was good time pass of 15 minutes.
AAP has long ago stopped answering straight questions, which is why you never see them on non-krantikari news channels. Kejriwal however continues to tweet about his dreams and nightmares in-between movie reviews, as he gets time; you see, applying your IITesque creative brain in cooking up entertainment agenda for the country is a hard task, takes a lot out of him.
