Why did media move away from Kejriwal?

Indian media always surrounded Arvind Kejriwal and other activists of Aam Aadmi Party. Lot of attention and importance was given to their protests along with Sh. Anna Hazare. 

They have always been talking of the common man and exposing the politicians and the way they are making a fool of the innocent people, who dont even know how the systems work and how these are being misused. But in our country it seems its too early to expect such an awakening in the common man because most of us are too ignorant and not sufficiently educated. Those who are educated and are earning, they are too busy in finding new ways to maximise their wealth. We give in for very small and short term gains. So, we have a very short term memory and we forget the issues too fast. Thats a boon for the corrupt politicians and bureaucrats. 

To me, Sh. Anna Hazare is the most intelligent of all of us and he is doing the best thing- educating, spreading awareness among the masses and that he is doing selflessly. Secondly, he is continuously doing his efforts as he has realized that it will take a long time for his efforts to show results and it will benefit our country in the long run. So he is sowing the right seeds for the better future of the nation, the fruits of which he himself wont be able to enjoy in his lifetime. 

We have spent centuries under foreign slavery and the after-effects of the same will be long lasting. We believe the propaganda and doubt those who work for our benefit. Our values are eroding at an alarmingly fast rate and our senses fail to differ between right and wrong and all what we can see is greed, lust. 

If an honest man/woman wants to enter politics and work for the betterment of the nation, its not at all easy for him/her. Why? Its because to prove to the people of India that he/she wants to serve them, he/she will have to spend years doing endless favours for the people, for which he/she will have to spend lacs of rupees and believe me, still people wont be happy with that person. So who can afford to waste lacs of rupees from his/her hard earned money? Nobody. So, who will join the politics? The corrupt, who have made millions of rupees by looting the nation. He/she will do everything to allure the voters, will feed them, serve them free liquor, and keep giving them few goodies and even influence them with muscle power. Only then he/she can hope to win elections and join politics.

Present day politicians have very well read the mind of Indian voters and so they are playing the game well. Those who are equally responsible to make this game dirty and spread corruption for selfish motives are the Industrialists, the richest class in the country. They bribe the Telecom Ministry to ensure that BSNL doesnt get the latest equipment and so their private companies lead the industry. They bribe the Petroleum Ministry so that they get those blocks which are full of oil and gas and government companies like GAIL keep busy in hit and trial over the remaining blocks. They own most of the media channels and ensure that neither the print media nor the News Channels expose their dirty games.

Till the time Arvind Kejriwal and team Anna kept exposing the politicians, government pressurized the media to move away from them and not to give any coverage/hype to their protests. The moment Arvind Kejriwal started exposing the dirty games of politicians-bureaucrats-industrialists nexus, the powerful Industrialist lobby became active and told their channels not to cover any activity of Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party. 

During a press conference, Kejriwal disclosed that the budget of our country is around Rs.19 lac crores and out of this a major chunk of around Rs.5 lac crores goes as subsidy to the industry. He proposed that government should end most of this subsidy as the big industrialists are very well to do and this huge amount may be equally divided as subsidy for petrol and diesel and in priority sectors like health and education. This will result in drastic reduction in petrol-diesel prices and a remarkable improvement in education and health-care.

This was the remark which the industrialists like Ambanis and others couldnot digest. Since they own most of the news channels, the channels were directed to stay away from Kejriwal and team as he was exposing their dirty games and making the public aware how our hard earned money is being looted.

It is the duty of every educated, aware citizen of India to spread awareness among the masses and defeat the politicians-bureaucrats-industrialists nexus for the benefit of one and all.
