I find the most popular sentiment here fairly disturbing. Especially the concluding statement of the highest rated answer, “In short, voting for the AAP in national elections is as good as voting the Congress. If you want the status quo by all means vote for the AAP. But, you can be honest and just vote for INC if that is your intention.”
I have a friend who is a great admirer of Narendra Modi and the work he has done in Gujarat, but the BJP candidate of his locality is a complete crook, should he still vote for this guy for the “greater good?” On a more personal note, I really admire Dr Jayaprakash Narayan and the vision he has for our country. But does that mean I should vote for any crook/fool/puppet that might don a Lok Satta scarf with JP’s picture on it, simply cause he represents a party founded by a man I greatly admire? Absolutely not. I suspect that Dr JP himself would say that no one should ever vote for a candidate because they happen to represent someone you hero worship or because they adorn a symbol you religiously follow.
