About the Book: Aap and Down

• In the first NC meeting after AAPs creation, Arvind had said: "This 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 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 Aam Aadmi Partys (AAP) National Executive, AAP and Down is an in-depth account of the emergence and sudden unspooling of one of Indias most closely watched parties.

The story of AAP is one of troughs and crests. 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 the idealistic India Against Corruption (IAC) movement—get ravaged by in-fighting and accusations of wrongdoing? What provoked the abrupt ouster of two party veterans, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan? What accounted for the wave of ignoble defeats across not just Punjab and Goa but also AAPs own home, Delhi? Here is a book 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 analyzes 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 partys undoing was linked to the flaws of its leading men.

Even while recounting the true story of a party, here is a book that presents the story of India—of how a country, plagued by scams and scandals, 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 nations citizens.

About the Author: Mayank Gandhi

Mayank Gandhi is an activist from India, leading the initiative Global Parli—a nation-building mission through rural transformation. He was previously a member of the core committee in the India Against Corruption movement and a National Executive member of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). During his time in AAP, Mayank was responsible for consolidating the partys position in Maharashtra and was also a state observer in Gujarat. In 2015, he resigned from the partys National Executive. Mayank lives in Mumbai with his wife and children. Twenty-three-year-old Shrey Shah has been a part of his mentor Mayank Gandhis journey right from the IAC days. He is also a budding lawyer who aspires to be an IAS officer in order to serve the nation.
