Use of school-going underage children for politics 

A few days ago, Congress president Mallikarjun Khadge attacks the BJP government on the misuse of ED and CBI. He said that “ 95% of raids getting conducted are on opposition leaders.” Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has been also attacking the BJP government on this matter. On a few occasions, Delhi’s Chief Minister and AAP president, Arvind Kejriwal said that “Give us ED and CBI, and half of the BJP will be behind the bars.

” A few days ago ED again came in the news when they raid Congress leaders in Chhattisgarh just before the 85th Congress plenary session. And Congress uses this as a topic to attack BJP. But things got changed in the politics of Delhi. Who changed it and why? Just for the political benefit?

On Sunday, February 27th, 2023, Former Deputy Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia got arrested by CBI for the case of irregularities in Delhi’s liquor policy.  AAP’s leaders start protesting against this arrest and every non-congress party supports AAP and start targeting the BJP government for misuse of CBI and ED.

But on Friday, March 3rd, 2023, AAP posted a few pictures of the poster on their Twitter account which is made by school-going children, which says “आपने मनीष चाचा को जेल में क्यूँ डाला वो बेकसूर है” (Why you put Manish uncle in jail, he is innocent), with the child name and class written on that poster. In other posters, the line got changed but the message is the same “Manish Sisodia is innocent.” In a few pictures, children were also seen holding these posters.

While replying to these BJP also used children-made posters which say “मनीष अंकल आप चोर हो, पुलिस ने अच्छा किया आपको जेल में डाल कर” (Manish Uncle you are a thief, police did the right thing by putting you behind the bars), with child name and class written on the poster. These posters are getting viral on the internet. And many of these posters are made by primary school students and every single one of it made by underage children. 

AAP started this thing and BJP is taking it forward but why? Why are underage children getting dragged into politics and who is allowing it to happen? Maybe AAP will get benefit from this or maybe BJP will get benefit from this but what about those students? There is a possibility that the allegation put up by the opposition on the government regarding the misuse of CBI and ED is right.

But why use students to prove your point right and to gain some political benefit? It is slowly becoming a trend, first AAP posted pictures then BJP posted pictures and now a few videos are going viral where news channels are taking interviews of students about Manish Sisodia. The charges against him are yet to be proven.

Why is not anyone stopping these things?  Why are innocent children getting dragged into politics and why AAP is trying to protect itself by hiding behind the innocent children?
