      Advance April-fool Party - AAP ,,,Fooled the people by election campaign against Congress scams and later joined hands with same Scamgress party...Fooled the people by offering limited time freebies.. (just 3 months offer)Fooled the people by fake promise of power waiver for those who haven't paid their bills since March last year..Fooled the people by offering jokepal bill..Fooled the people by promising the that CM will interact with your problems in Janata Durbar, and so called CM escaping the venue after seeing the large crowd, leaving innocent people into huge stampede..Fooled the people by announcing janthar mandar dharna until Delhi Police brought under the control of state govt, but withdrawn the dharna for silly reason, sending 2 police men on paid leave..Fooled the people by shouting on the roof of his house against Robert Vadhera & Sheila Dixit saying he has prepared a Charge Sheet of 370 Pages, and after election he forgets the names of even Sheila Dixit and Robert Vadhera..Fooled the people by announcing FIR against Sheila Dixit, Ambani & Veerappa moily without mentioning any of these names on the doent..Fooled the people by skipping the consutional procedures to bring Lokpal bill, instead pla 'immoral drama' for bringing the bill through back door..

        It is sad to see that AK resigned...However AK made a right decision to step down for a noble cause...I am happy in another sense that AK can now focus on LS elections...W India needs him and he being busy only in Delhi is not the full usage of his charisma..He should travel w India, increase awareness among people and expose the corruption of BJP and Congress...He should find genuine and honest leaders across the India and should give a strong fight to all corrupt leaders...AAP will prevail..Jai Hind..
