For AAP, the real magic is in the numbers

For AAP, the real magic is in the numbers
A unique magic show was organized on a sunny Tuesday afternoon where the main artiste was Kumar Vishwas. Before his entry, excited party workers tried their best to keep the spirits high and held magic shows in order to engage the audience. It was an effort to indulge in garnering votes for the party, some entertainment and an attempt to secure the magic figure for the forthcoming Delhi election.

An excited ‘magician’ on stage converted a hat and flowers into a little broom (the AAP symbol). “AAP will create magic once it comes to power in Delhi,” he told the audience. Vishwas had come to address a public-rally for AAP’s Jangpura candidate Praveen Deshmukh.

Various other tricks were performed while the ecstatic crowd waited for Vishwas to arrive who reached the venue two hours later. Bhogal essentially comprises of traders, shopkeepers, fruit and vegetable sellers. With most of their leaning evident from the AAP caps they were sporting, a grocer, Aadesh Goyal, said: “We all are going to vote for AAP. We have seen the work by the previous government (Congress) who has run Delhi and this time we would want Arvind Kejriwal to be our Chief Minister and run the government.” Also enjoying the magic show, Bipender, who works as a guard, said he was hopeful that AAP would form the government in the Capital.

Meanwhile, Banwarilal, owner of a watch-repair shop in the market, said he believed that change will only happen when AAP comes to power.

“Yes, we will see magic happen like this when AAP comes to power. I believe Arvind Kejriwal will change things for everyone. I remember even in those 49 days, how he managed to scare people who were indulging in corruption. Once in this market, a cop came to a banana seller outside my shop and paid for the very first time. He told the seller: “You never know with Kejriwal now in power, who might be making a sting video of mine if I do not pay up.”

With an electorate of 1.29 lakh, Jangpura constituency which is part of East Delhi will be seeing a triangular contest between AAP’s Praveen Deshmukh, BJP’s Maninder Singh Dhir and Congress Tarvinder Singh Marwah. Former Speaker of Delhi Vidhan Sabha, Dhir had won from Jangpura in 2013 with an AAP ticket but switched to the BJP in November 2014. Meanwhile, for three-time MLA Tarvinder Singh Marwah, who had won from this seat in 1998, 2003 and 2008 was defeated by Dhir in 2013 by as many as 2,000 votes.
