Dear Sir,

We apologize for the delay in replying.
Thank you for writing to us and reminding us of the possible pitfalls. We assure you that your mail will be given a deep consideration, and we will guard ourselves against the corrupting effects of power. We will take all caution to prevent AAP from degenerating into yet another political party.

Our historic journey begins now. We request you to join us and together let us work hard for a better tomorrow for our nation.

My thoughts about the reply:

1. AAP must be receiving dozens, maybe hundreds of communications every day. It appears they have created the organization to reply to each communication.

2. From the contents of the reply, it is clear that my email, or a significant portion, has been read by the signatory.

3. AAP’s email has been signed by a party functionary, and no attempt has been made to give the impression that my email has been read by Arvind Kejriwal himself.

4. I hope that the assurance given in the reply is sincere, and that the reply is not merely a well-worded PR exercise. I am making this observation because the recent events in AAP have made me wonder whether AAP is, below an impressive exterior, just like any other political party.

  1. I am prompted to say at least they replied. But like you said, it could be just a PR exercise and underneath it all, AAP is just a younger version of BJP.

  2. Well they replied now that is a START and a good sign i would taken .. doesnot matter if keriwal read it himself, i doubt if he has time to read all the emails..

    and even if it just a PR exercise at least its some change.. which is a Step forward
