Book Name: AAP & Down: An Insider’s Story of India’s Most Controversial Party
By Mayank Gandhi and Shrey Shah
‘In the first NC meeting after AAP’s creation, Arvind Kejriwal had said: “AAP party is not the property of 300 founding members but of the lakhs and crores of people in this country.” This refreshing stance shifted over time, got corrupted by power . . . till, one day, Arvind Kejriwal told me: I do not want intellectuals in the party, just people who say “Bharat Mata ki Jai”.’
Authored by a former member of the APP’s (Aam Aadmi Party) National Executive, AAP and Down is an in-depth account of the emergence and sudden unspooling of one of India’s most closely watched parties.
The story of AAP is one of crests and troughs. After capturing the imagination of over a billion Indians and winning a landslide victory in the 2015 Delhi elections, a seemingly indestructible party began to dangerously teeter.
What just happened?
How did a party—born of idealistic IAC(India Against Corruption ) movement—get ravaged by in-fighting and accusations of wrongdoing?
What accounted for the wave of ignoble defeats across not just Punjab and Goa but also AAP’s own home, Delhi?
What provoked the abrupt ouster of two-party veterans, Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav?
Here is a book “AAP & Down: An Insider’s Story of India’s Most Controversial Party” that reveals all—from the clashes and intrigues that beset the IAC movement to the goings-on during the closed-door meetings of AAP. But beyond chronicling events, thus far undisclosed, AAP and Down analyze the dispositions of the leaders who had once promised a better India—from a volatile Anna Hazare to an autocratic Arvind Kejriwal—to highlight how the party’s undoing was linked to the flaws of its leading men.
Even while recounting the true story of a party, here is a book “AAP & Down by Mayank Gandhi” that presents the story of India—of how a country, plagued by scandals and scams, dared to unite under IAC and overthrow the corrupt. In this, there is a lesson for AAP—the book emphatically reminds the party that its best chance of revival lies in reinvesting faith in this nation’s citizens.
