The chef minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal resigned over the non—passage of his very ambitious Jan Lokpal bill in the legislative assembly. With only 28 seats of the AAP in the assembly, the fate of the bill was entirely dependent on both BJP and Congress who opposed the methods of presenting the bill citing it as unconstitutional. 

Not an unprecedented decision he had earlier made it clear that if the passage of the bill is blocked, he will resign. As any CM of who lacks the power to legislate his agenda has no moral ground to retain his position, his resignation is hence, completely moral and justified.
He said his steps didn’t revoke any law of the constitution, but he repealed the law of central government which he says he is not bound to follow. So his resignation gives fire to the debate that Delhi must be given the status of complete state.

This step is in the larger interest of Delhiites. If in re-election he comes in majority he would be able to fulfill his agenda without much chaos and ruckus. In the current situation he was facing opposition in his every decision due to not having essential numbers in assembly. Even if his steps are political, this kind of politics will set up a good precedent. We have seen big leaders sticking to their positions ever after being indicted of various charges. This step will give birth to the principle of moral liability.

But there is another side to the story, as his resignation smells of the larger political game that he has played in the wake of Loksabha election. Many feel that if he wanted to pass the Janlokpal bill, he could have gone with the legal process and then presented the bill. It seems that he was in search of an escape route to resign.

After all resigning for one thing that you can’t do is not justified. It is better to remain in power and do 100 other things that you can rather that sticking to just one agenda. For him resignation was not the only option, he could have negotiated with other parties and the central government. This resignation seems fishy and abrupt.

With his resignation, Delhi will be headed towards re-election, which will increase the economic burden on the exchequer and most importantly the people of Delhi who voted him to power are feeling cheated.

This is one of those rare moments in the politics of India where unlike others who prefer to remain in power either by hook or by crook; a CM has resigned on moral grounds for the sake of his principals and agenda. But what is important is that such action should not be taken without contemplation and for larger political benefits.
