It was obvious Kejriwal worked for RSS BJP for over a decade.
It is also clear RSS wanted Second BJP team to replace Failed BJP party formed by ‘Emergency Accident’ – all its leaders are of either 1985 Vintage or few top leaders from Jan Sangh days of 60s.
RSS initial strategy to defame UPA-II and bring down the government back fired – over two years UPA II maintained lead over BJP in all state elections including large states West Bengal and Kerala.
Karnataka and Gujarat are in deep trouble – ‘Modi Gimmicks’ work no more – he has now come down to distributing Sewing Machines, Bicycles, Foot Balls and Cricket Bats to lure voters. Over 62 companies are Under CBI Investigation for Iron Ore Loot and in Gujarat key ministers close to Modi are Convicted for Mass Murders post Godhra Riots, Home Minister in charge sheeted for Fake Encounters.
Kejriwal too realized he has no Future Working as ‘Street Executioner’ targeting UPA II in every sentence. He responded by GOING FREE at peak of his popularity before losing credibility.
Kejriwal was the only one in BJP-II who has his Own Brain and fit to Lead BJP-II but some how RSS wanted Barking Ramdev to lead the BJP-II who could puppeteer from out side.
Masses shall follow Kejriwal in greater numbers since he has come out of RSS shadow.
Freed Kejriwal will be Positive to Indian Politics.
Eventually he may lead BJP-II.
Day after, Arvind Kejriwal faction suspects Ramdev hand behind split with Anna Hazare
Abantika Ghosh Fri Sep 21 2012,
New Delhi : A day after their split became official, there was speculation in Arvind Kejriwal’s India Against Corruption (IAC) group that Anna Hazare’s growing association with yoga guru Ramdev may have been the final breaking point.
Significantly, Hazare was closeted in a meeting with Ramdev and former Army Chief Gen V K Singh last night, immediately after the IAC meeting.
Sources in the Kejriwal camp also pointed to “close RSS links” of some of Hazare’s aides, saying that Kiran Bedi and Sitaram Jindal had pushed for a dialogue with the “principal opposition party”.
Ramdev’s spokesperson confirmed Gen (retd) V K Singh’s presence at the meeting last night, and said the Baba might address a press conference on Friday to reveal details of what transpired.
In Pune, Hazare refrained from commenting on the split or his meeting with Ramdev. “I will not speak on this subject for the next four days,” he said. “I came here to pray to Lord Ganesh to rid the country of corruption. I will not comment on other dirty things.”
In a video address earlier in the day, Hazare reiterated that the movement had split, and both groups would work for the common goal of eradicating corruption.
“We respect Anna Hazare, he is our guru and father. Yesterday’s developments were shocking, unbelievable, unfortunate and sad. Anna’s five principles are the foundation of our party. Anna’s photograph and name are printed in our hearts...
We will keep seeking his blessings,” tweeted Kejriwal today.
Sources said both Hazare and Ramdev agreed that they would not be a part of any political outfit and would not allow any party on their stage. Incidentally, Ramdev’s last fast at Ramlila Maidan had ended with a show of strength by top NDA leaders including BJP president Nitin Gadkari and JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav.
“Hazare was originally slated to meet Ramdev at 5 pm and he started becoming very restless. Three people were not even allowed to speak,” said a member of Team Kejriwal. “Sitaram Jindal and Kiran Bedi urged a dialogue with BJP. Jindal said Italy’s rule has to end... There are reports that VHP and RSS functionaries were present at the Hazare-Ramdev meeting,” he claimed.
But Bedi retorted that she has always targeted the party in power. “It does not mean any sympathy or alignment with the opposition,” she said.
The IAC publicity machinery also stressed on former bureaucrat Avinash Dharmadhikari’s past association with the Shiv Sena, Bedi, Jindal and Dharmadhikari were among those who opposed a political option at yesterday’s meeting.
According to sources, Kejriwal and his team tried hard to convince Hazare to lend his name to the proposed party. “Without you we are nothing. Everything will come to nought if you are not with us,” Kejriwal reportedly told Hazare.
But Hazare did not relent. “You are free to launch a party... but you will have to do it on your own strength and not by using my name,” he is reported to have said.
At the nine-hour meeting mediated by social scientist Yogendra Yadav, Shanti Bhusan reportedly recounted his experience with the Janata Party. He said that if the party could come to power within two months of its formation, there was no reason why Kejriwal’s party could not do so with two years to go for Lok Sabha elections.
Meanwhile, Bedi said they were now searching for a new IAC office in Delhi.

Jindal Aluminium to set up Rs 500cr foil plant
Jindal Aluminium will invest Rs 500 crore to set up a factory for making foils and sheets near its existing extrusion facility in Bangalore, a top company official said today.
"The plant will come up near our plant in Bangalore. It will go on stream by March next year. We are investing Rs 500 crore on the plant. This will make foils and sheets," Jindal Aluminium's Executive Director B D Garg told PTI.
The company, promoted by S R Jindal, younger brother of O P Jindal, has already acquired 50 acres of land and has placed orders for plant and machinery.
"In the very first year of operation, production will be around 12,000 tonnes per annum, which would be ramped up to 35,000 tonnes a year in three years," Garg said.
Buoyed by the growing demand from the packaging industry, India had to import around 65,000 tonnes aluminium foils last year, mostly from China, to cater to the domestic need.
Garg said the company would stand to have a great chance to cash in on the burgeoning demand for aluminium foils in the country.
Jindal Aluminium, a leading player in the country's Rs 3,500 crore aluminium extrusion space with over 20% market share, hopes to clock total sales of Rs 900 crore in this fiscal from Rs 800 crore in the previous one.
"In the next fiscal, this should go up to Rs 1,300 crore with contribution of Rs 1,000 crore from the existing aluminium extrusion business and the remaining from aluminium foils and sheets," Garg said.
The company hopes to sell more than 50,000 tonnes extrusion from 45,000 tonnes sold last year. The industry size is two lakh tonnes and has been growing at 8-10% per annum.
