Aam Admi Party (AAP) removed Surendra Sharma of an East Delhi constituency for the Delhi Assembly Elections after the revelation of criminal cases against him. Balbir Singh, an RTI activist, will be the new candidate for the East Delhi constituency.

Surendra Sharma was selected to contest from Shahdara assembly constituency, but the AAP learnt that Mr. Sharma had a large number of criminal cases and property disputes. He was recently appointed chairperson of the election committee of the Shahdara Bar Association. The party learnt that this election was cancelled due to the alleged use of unfair means and violence.

AAP party said that they were not aware about the criminal cases and FIRs pending against Surendra Sharma as he did not mentioned on the form, which has to be filled before being selected as party’s candidate.

AAP statement said, “This action is in line with AAP’s commitment to ensure that no person with doubtful credentials represents the party in the upcoming elections”. Arvind Kejriwal said: “Even if on the last day of the nomination we receive any credible information against any candidate with regard to a criminal record, we will cancel the candidature and keep the seat vacant.”

    A Contrarian View

    Pakistani prime minister , Nawaz Sharif , yesterday suggested that America should get “ involved “ in solving the “ Kashmir Issue “

    Expectedly , Indian politicians are all united ( at least on one issue ! ) in telling USA :

    “ Keep your hands off Kashmir . We don’t need third party intervention to solve , what is essentially , our bilateral problem , as agreed in Shimla Agreement . “

    Except that no politician is willing to admit the harsh ground reality that , after 60 years of LoC skirmishes – and thousands of deaths , India and Pakistan have failed to resolve the issue “ bilaterally “ !

    Late Vasant Sathe was the only politician who had the ( suicidal ? ) courage to say ,

    “ Only practical solution is for both countries to accept LoC as the international border “

    And such a “ practical solution “ can come about only through a third-party mediation , without making either Indian or Pakistani politicians losing face !

    Let us admit :

     Without a peaceful solution of Kashmir Issue , thousands of innocent Indians living close to LoC will continue to die

     Unlike Israel , India cannot engage in “ Hot Pursuit “ of the terrorists into Pak-Occupied Kashmir , without risking an all-out Nuclear war

     Western Nations ( especially USA ) need Pakistan to fight Al Qaeda. Despite endless Indian protestations , billions of dollars worth of American Aid money to improve Pakistan’s economy will continue to fund terrorists in POK

     China is encircling India by establishing strong economic / military presence in Tibet / Nepal / Myanmar / Sri-Lanka / Maldive / Pakistan etc

     Even Russian support to India is waning , as Russian economy gets more and more integrated with EU

    Let us ask ourselves :

    “ Is it right to continue spending billions of rupees in maintaining our military presence in Kashmir , when 400 million BPL Indians don’t get 2 meals a day ?

    How long must 1.6 million Indian children ( below the age of 5 ) continue to die , year after year , due to starvation ?”

    Alas ! Neither Rahul Gandhi nor Narendra Modi would have the moral courage to answer this question !

    In their party’s Poll Manifestos , there will be a deafening silence on this practical solution !
