The AAP’s reluctance to form the government in Delhi reminds one of the principal character in Paul Gallico’s moving novel Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Parliament, in which a domestic help discovers that getting elected to the House of Commons is one thing and participating in the discussions there is quite another. The poor lady finally decides to give up her seat. Arvind Kejriwal should understand that the electorate expects graft-free administration more than a fulfilment of election promises, many of which are anyway outlandish. He should accept Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung’s offer and form a minority government.
