The general expectations from a Salman Khan movie are pretty stagnant and basic. The movie will have some mindblowing action, chartbuster masala songs, Salman's bare-chested body, few classic dialogues, a beautiful damsel in distress and massive box office collections. The audience and the critics don't expect more than this. 'Tubelight' was exactly none of it and maybe this didn't go too well with anyone because of some solid preconceived notions about a typical 'Salman Khan Film'.
But that doesn't...

AAP Model Or 'Discredited' Gujarat Model, Choice Is Yours: Arvind Kejriwal

Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said people of the country have a choice between the Aam Aadmi Party's model of governance and the "discredited" Gujarat model which has "cheated" citizens.
Indicating his willingness to expand the party's base, Kejriwal said AAP will have to fight elections with a target of winning at least 90 per cent seats and make governments to change the system.
"We will fight elections but before that we have to work hard. We have to fight elections to win 90 seats out of 100. We will fight elections to make governments and change the system," the AAP's national convenor said at the party's National Council meeting.
Kejriwal hit out at the BJP alleging the saffron party canvassed for votes in the name of development and later diverted the focus to other issues like the row over raising 'Bharat mata ki jai' slogan.

"Now they say raise 'Bharat mata ki jai' slogans otherwise you will be beaten up. During the Anna movement, people chanted 'Bharat mata ki jai' from their hearts. But they are resorting to threats. Everyone is angry including students, farmers and jewellers. Even the Chief Justice of India wept in front of them," he said.
He said people are "so satisfied with AAP's model of governance in the national capital that if elections are held today BJP won't win even a single seat".
"There is a Delhi model of governance and then the Gujarat model. We invite everyone to compare the two models. Schools in Gujarat are in bad shape, so is health care. Now everyone knows what the Gujarat model is. People have been cheated in the name of Gujarat model," he said.
Referring to the tussle between his government and the Centre over several issues, Kejriwal accused the Modi government of "trying its best to scuttle" AAP's efforts but added that "still we are moving ahead and working for the people of Delhi".

"We read our manifesto everyday and work on it, while they hardly remember what they promised. Centre has done nothing. They say we will do this by 2023 because they know they won't be in power then," Kejriwal said.
During the day-long meet, AAP will elect its National Executive which will further choose a new Political Affairs Committee (PAC) -- the party's highest decision making body.
