Hyderabad, Feb 15 : Tahreek Muslim Shabban and Telangana Muslim JAC president Mushtaq Mallik today welcomed the resignation of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the issue of Jan Lok Pal Bill.
In a media statement, Mushtaq Mallik praised Kejriwal for his daring act of deciding to quit his post over a legislation aimed at ending corruption. He said that the qualities and dedication displayed by Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party towards corruption-free society was unmatched in the entire country. Almost all politicians in the existing system are not only corrupt, but they could go to any extent to grab or stay in power. But Kejriwal has set a new precedent in the Indian politics.
Mushtaq Mallik said that Kejriwal’s decision has led to the beginning of a new era in Indian democracy.
While there are several instances wherein Chief Ministers, Union and State Ministers, refused to relinquish from their seats despite facing serious allegations of corruption, Kejriwal is probably the first Chief Minister who resigned to end corruption in the society. He said Kejriwal’s resignation would create a new wave against corruption in the entire country.
Kejriwal and Aam Admi Party have reminded the country about the moral and ethical politics practiced by leaders like Dr B R Ambedkar, Ram Manohar Lohia, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Jayprakash Narayan and V P Singh. These leaders have sacrificed their posts on moral grounds. Today Kejriwal and his team are trying to implement the ideals practiced by these great leaders.
The Aam Admi Party led by Arvind Kejriwal has proved that country is more important than power. Other parties like BJP and Congress would have resorted to corruption and horse-trading to stay in power. But despite having the opportunity to continue in power, Kejriwal resigned for the sake of common man.
Mushtaq Mallik hoped that the Aam Aadmi Party would work towards bringing a change in the country. He appreciated Kejriwal for stopping the growing communal wave of Narendra Modi and Sangh Parivar. However, he asked Kejriwal to devise a policy for the welfare and development of minorities, Dalits and other suppressed sections of the society. He said that the weaker sections were the worst hit due to corruption in the society and they need to be empowered politically.
He expressed confidence that the Aam Aadmi Party will not only root out corruption, but will also ensure social justice in the country. He said that AAP will not remain confined to Delhi, but will spread its movement to all parts of the country. INN
